Household appliances don't generally make good gifts. Unless, your spouse / partner really loves, say, cooking, then the appliance is not something that is going to excite them or make them feel good. It might make that particular part of the housework easier or quicker, but it's still not a good message-giver. Choose personal items that pertain to your spouse / partner as an individual, not just a housewife, or dinner-maker, or ironer. Choose items that reflect their passions and interests and your love for them.
