For spouses
Budget:

A visit to a blues club or a rhythm-and-blues concert will probably give you both the opposite of the blues.

Splurge:

Sapphire-studded jewelry, of course. Rings, necklaces, tie tacks and cuff links offer many ways to set off these gemstones.

For another couple

Give blue glass dessert bowls or plates, vintage or new.
