Whether it’s your first anniversary or you 60th, show your significant other how much you love and appreciate them with one of these thoughtful anniversary gift ideas.
Every woman is different, but almost all women enjoy gifts that they can admire for years to come. If you’re struggling to pick an anniversary gift this year, consider these lasting, romantic ideas.
Flowers eventually die, and that’s just lousy symbolism. Instead of flowers, get her a houseplant that will continue to grow, just like your love for each other. Plants make great gifts, and certain kinds can survive even the most clueless beginner. Air plants don’t even need soil — just some spritzing here and there. If you have pets, make sure that whatever plant you get isn’t toxic to them.
You don’t have to be a scrapbooker to put together a photo book that she’ll cherish forever. Scroll through social media, gather some photographs, and use a photo book service like Shutterfly to design a beautiful photo book. Use templates to design a layout, then add in captions, clip art, and stickers to make it unique. Shutterfly’s designers are currently creating professional photo books for no extra cost, so if you aren’t feeling creative, you could let them design a beautiful book for you. There’s plenty of versatility in cover styles, layouts, paper types, and photo book sizes so you can create a real work of art that’s perfect for her.
It’s a classic anniversary gift for a reason. Jewelry is sentimental, personal, and of course — pretty. Don’t just go for the shiniest thing, though. Show that you put thought behind it and get something unique. You can order personalized jewelry from independent creators on websites like Etsy — including engraved stacking rings, necklaces, bracelets, and more.
Sometimes men can be downright inscrutable. If he hasn’t dropped any hints for you, check out these gift ideas — and if none of them sound right, there’s always the new PlayStation 5.
If your man enjoys a good nightcap, a whiskey decanter set will make the perfect gift. It doesn’t have to be used for whiskey if that’s not his preference, either. No matter what it contains, a decanter set will step up his liquor presentation and give off an impressive vibe. You can get him a single glass decanter or a 5-piece set — there’s plenty of versatility in sizes, styles, and prices.
It’s technically a gift for yourself, but he’ll appreciate it nonetheless. Lingerie is a perfect gift for special occasions, and there’s truly something for everyone. Surprise him with sexy lingerie like a leather bodysuit, lace teddy, or a cheeky bra and panty set complete with garters and hosiery. Spice it up with fun accessories to complete that sexy look. If you’re a little more modest, you could go for a mesh babydoll, lace chemise, or silky robe. Search a vast collection of intimate wear — including plus size lingerie, sleepwear, and shapewear — to find something you’ll both love.
A watch is another classic gift that he’ll love. Spring for something flashy if that’s his style, or customize something more affordable with a unique engraving. Smartwatches are getting cooler all the time with features like sleep monitoring, calling and messaging, notification alerts, and app integration. Whether it’s digital or not, find something that suits his style best. He’s going to wear it every day, after all.
The most important thing about an anniversary gift is the intention behind it — celebrating another year of your love. Go beyond flowers and cards and choose one of these gifts that your significant other can cherish for many years to come.
