    1. A five-minute daily journal that'll help them think about what they're grateful for... 1) you... 2) the color black... 3) a daily gratitude journal that isn't too dang cheery like the rest....

    2. A skull jewelry box so your beloved can fit a skele-ton of their belongings in a container that fits their aesthetic.

    3. A stylish sticker to help celebrate the death of something that, tbh, needs no mourning.

    4. A copy of Mothmeister, a coffee table book of haunted fairytales with photos featuring taxidermy art, Elizabethan fabric sculptures, nightmarishly stunning landscapes, and um, nightmares. To give them nightmares?

    5. An enamel pin sure to let your sweetheart know you'd never leave them alone.

    6. Shower gel perfect for the next time they want to pull an Elizabeth Bathory without all the human interaction (and extraction).

    7. A black bath bomb ready to make them look like they're soaking in a delicious potion. (Don't worry! Reviewers say it won't stain the tub bc non-goth landlords just don't understand.)

    8. A serial killer coloring book so they can get a gift their true crime–loving self really wants... even if it's a little ~sketchy~.

    9. Or a deck of serial killer playing cards to prove that you're not playing games in this relationship.

    10. A black forest candle in a matte tin for a nice slow burn while they gaze off into the distance.

    11. And an all-black (naturally) candle accessory set because blowing out at that frame super hard is incredibly dramatic, but not in a fun, sexy way.

    12. A fresh copy of Misery as a gentle reminder of your Annie-level dedication to them. Now hows about ya' finally book that gorgeous cabin weekend?

    13. A coffin cookie cutter that'll let them make a treat truly worth dying for.

    14. A book of short horror stories you can read before you both fall asleep, guaranteeing some serious post-scare snuggle time every night.

    15. Donner Dinner Party — a board game that's certainly gonna be your boo's ~taste~.

    16. A spooky clapbook as a spin on a classic children's book with dualism they'll appreciate.

    17. A tin of lip (em)balm for the babe who's just trying to preserve their beauty. (Not that you think they'd need any help with that.)

    18. A pack of three deaths head moths — they're gonna last far longer than a cliche bouquet... even if they already look dead.

    19. A rather terrifying zombie face mask sure to make their skin as soft and supple as a nice, juicy brain.

    20. A true crime tee that'll let your spouse know you love them despite the suspicious number of murder podcasts they listen to. Now *you* can be the husband who did it! And by "it" we mean "got the perfect gift" not, you know... murder.

    21. A poison pendant for anyone who likes to accessorize with a little (deadly) spice.

    22. Death Wish coffee so they can have an appropriate pick-me-up the morning after a late night when they feel like death despite sleeping in.

    23. Or a grim tea set that'll help them feel like a part of the living world again.

    24. And a black porcelain cauldron coffee mug big enough to share a drink together — the only problem is gonna be deciding ~witch~ one of you gets to drink from it first.

    25. An enamel pin that could make their lil' black heart grow a few sizes bigger.

    26. Or a gorgeous coffin pin to remind them that you're there for them 'til the end.

    27. A copy of Amphigorey, filled with dark tales and dreary illustrations for a loved one who prefers particularly ~gorey~ gifts.

    28. A Black Phillip print that's gonna prove you aren't ~kidding~ around with your rather dark romance.

    29. A T-shirt for the person in your life who is truly down to do anything, as long as they're with you.

    30. A jewelry organizer so striking your S.O. will want your ~digits~ all over again.

    31. A daily calendar (because who cares about January?) with facts to scare them silly each and every day.

    32. A collection of peoples' biggest fears to remind your S.O. the thought of being without them is a fear you never want to face.

    33. A necklace that's gonna remind them every time they wear it that you are ~raven~ about them from afar.

    34. A pair of salt and pepper shakers that'll make them say, "Sodi-um, I think I love these."

    35. A sweatshirt for loved ones with a grim sense of humor and fantastic fashion sense. Let's just hope this gift doesn't make your boo decide to ~ghost~ you.

    36. A dark engagement ring that, tbh, looks like you barely scrambled out of a haunted house alive to snag it. (And coming from us, that is the HIGHEST of compliments.)

    37. A zombie-apocalypse cookbook that'll feed their survivalist tendencies while feeding you BOTH.

    38. Couple goals you can gift to the one who's ~eternally yours~.

    39. A dream-decoding card set that's part cheery and part gloomy (but honestly their Insta followers don't have to know that and can just assume they're sinister thanks to these gorgeous illustrations).

    40. A Hearts card set with some bite you can get 3–5 players involved in for couple game night. Tehehe.

    When your special someone opens their extra special gift:
