Staying in a hotel on your own usually means you are on business. Whereas staying in a hotel room as a couple means you are enjoying a getaway.

Below are some suggestions for presents that would be perfect for a couple.

Remember that if you give someone a gift for two then they will need to take another person along for the ride...

Try these for size.

Of course, we have many other present suggestions on the 5pm Christmas Gift pages.

TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award

‘Booked this hotel as it was ideally situated between George Square and Argyle Street. Got to the hotel really early and popped in to leave our luggage which was no problem… I was hardly back in the room when a staff member arrived with two wee bottles of Irn Bru and two Tunnock’s tea cakes. The breakfast was great and I can’t thank the staff enough, they were great, very friendly and couldn’t do enough for you. Many thanks Ibis. 5/5’
