Posted on November 23, 2011 @ 2:25 PM in Adventure

You have reached our 2011 Christmas gift ideas for couples blog however don't worry we have loads of great gift ideas for 2015! Head over to our Christmas Gift Ideas for Couples 2015 blog for some fantastic gift ideas for couples.

It’s that time of year when we start stressing about what to give our loved ones for Christmas. If you’ve exhausted the chocolate and jewellery options, bought every accessory imaginable for their favorite hobby and don’t have a clue what to get your extended family then can help.

With OutdoorNI Gift Vouchers you can now buy unique and thrilling Christmas presents for your loved ones all from the comfort of your own home.

With over 25 couples gift vouchers to choose from it won’t be long before you’re crossing off the names from the Christmas present list. Give your son-in-law a chance to have a laugh with his better half or buy a voucher for your brother and sister-in-law so they can enjoy some quality time together.

They say the joy of the gift is in the giving not the receiving, but who says you can’t appreciate both?! Buy a couples voucher for your husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend and enjoy the experience with them – it’s a win win situation!
