TWO IS the magic number, but buying festive gifts for couples can be double the work and choosing gifts for both halves to enjoy is equally tricky.
From a private luxury boating trip on Loch Lomond to a symbol of eternal love, let us take the pressure off by providing some inspiration with our list of top 5 gifts for special couples to share.
1. Food and Wine evening experience
Run by the Edinburgh School of Food and Wine, this gourmand experience with an emphasis on drinking wine is held in the bell tower of an 18th designed by renowned architect Robert Adam.
