Do you have an anniversary coming up? Thinking of new ideas year after year can be very challenging, especially if you are already buying gifts for other occasions such as their birthday and Christmas.
An anniversary is a perfect opportunity to celebrate your love, reflect on the year just gone, and get excited about the year to come. There can be a lot of pressure to stick to traditional anniversary gifts, paper for one year, etc., but do not let this stop you from buying your partner something you think they will truly love.
If your partner is into their style, or they have been looking for ways to elevate their outfits, gifting them a timeless accessory is a great option.
Opt for something timeless that they will get a lot of use of, such as a classic black wallet or an elegant diamond ring. If you are looking for something extra special, maybe for a significant anniversary such as ten years, you could get their gift engraved with your anniversary date or monogrammed with their initials. This subtle touch shows them how much effort and thought has gone into the gift and means it is something they will treasure forever.
Plan a date night
If physical gifts are not your partner’s thing, you could opt for an experience instead. Planning a special date night for the two of you is a lovely way to show them how much you care about them, while also getting in some quality time.
For extra romance, you could return to where you had your first date together. If this is not possible, spend some time researching new restaurants or activities that you know they would enjoy.
When gifting a date night, it is always nice to cover all bases with the planning. If you have children, make sure you sort the childcare well in advance. If you are feeling brave you could even gift your partner an outfit to wear too.
For many of us, life is incredibly busy, and we do not often get the chance to reflect back on special memories such as a wedding day.
Giving your partner the opportunity to do this makes for the perfect anniversary gift. Whether you finally get around to physically printing out your wedding photos and arranging them into a nice album, or you arrange an at-home screening of your wedding video, anything centred around your wedding day itself is sure to make your partner smile. What could be better than a trip down memory lane?
If you have children that were not present at your wedding, it could be nice to get them involved, showing them pictures from your special day, and taking a rummage through your wedding memory box as a family.
If you drank a certain wine or add a memorable meal on your big day, you could go to the effort of sourcing the same wine or recreating the meal at home.
