So if you want to give a gift that you know will be used and will help make the daunting task more fun, this customizable address stamp with beautiful calligraphy in 26 different color options is the perfect choice.

Ours DecanterWe love this gift because when things are so often separated as his and his or his and hers, it can be one of the first things that a couple can put in their home that is theirs. This crystal decanter is perfect for holding a celebratory velvety red wine or a perfectly aged whiskey, and with a super sleek design, it's begging to be put on display.

She Put a Ring on It Mug: She liked it, so she put a ring on it! We love this mug because it shatters gender roles and shows some love for our gals who get down on one knee. You can even choose which side you want the mug handle to be on, which is important if you want your morning cup of joe selfie to feature your new sparkling bling!
