7 Anniversary Gift Ideas for Your Husband, Wife, or Partner
The “Bridgerton Experience” Gift
By now, Netflix’s steamy hit show is the talk of the season! If your partner, like the rest of the country, is intoxicated by this romantic fantasy then throw them a Bridgerton-themed anniversary party! Set the mood at home and create a sweet escape that ends with you and your partner playing Duke and Duchess in the bedroom.
Begin the celebration with afternoon tea, biscuits, and cakes. Use floral china, a tiered cake tray, and decorative accents like a lace tablecloth and ribbon. If you don’t have these already, you can find most items at your local thrift stores. After tea, re-watch some of your favorite episodes as you cuddle together. For dinner, prepare a rich meal with dessert. Here are some Date Night Recipes to Make at Home, if you’re not sure what to make. Along with your partner’s gift, give them a romantic card that says, “I burn for you” (our favorite Duke line—swoon) and dance to classical tunes or favorite pop songs. Perfect for couples who enjoy a little role play fantasy, this anniversary gift is a whole day of escapist romance and intimacy.
Shopping Cart Surprise
Does your partner save items in their online shopping cart, to wait for a sale or their next paycheck? Pick their favorite retailer—Target, Amazon, Pottery Barn, etc.—and surprise them by buying their entire shopping cart! To make sure they don’t purchase the items, you’ll want to do this the day before or the morning of your anniversary. You’ll also need to play detective and get access to their account in advance so you can note all of the items. If the items are all online, you can give them the shopping receipt along with flowers, a bottle of wine, and a small present. Your partner will love how much thought and effort you put into this creative gift!
Your relationship story is a rom-com worthy of its own novel. Capture your love story on paper with this personalized book for couples! Tell your unique love story by customizing the title, characters, and text on every page. The book details all the ways you spend time together. Add your own loving messages to every page and create a personalized anniversary gift that your partner will treasure.
“Never Have I Ever” Activity Gift
Choose a relationship “first” and do it together on your anniversary! If your partner has always wanted to get a tattoo, gift them a tattoo as their anniversary present. If you both have never taken a cooking class, sign up for a virtual cooking class at home. Relationship “firsts” are exciting and strengthen your romantic bond. An anniversary gift doesn’t have to be something physical. It can be an activity you enjoy together. By doing something new together, you will make unforgettable anniversary memories.
Handmade Photo Book
Preserve your most precious memories in a handmade photo book that your partner can keep forever. You can create a photo book online or make one by hand. To make one from scratch, print and glue photos to paper, write handwritten messages, and bind the pages with rings. This sweet and thoughtful gift comes from the heart and is personalized just for your S.O.
“Marriage is a Journey” Travel Gift
It might sound a little cheesy, but life is an adventure that’s best traveled together! Inspire wanderlust and adventure in your marriage with this travel-themed anniversary gift. Mark a world map with all the places you want to visit. Fold it and put it into a gift box. Add travel books for the destination you want to visit first. Include some fun travel accessories. And finally, surprise your partner with future travel tickets. The couple who travels together, grows together.
Snack Lovers Gift Basket
Does your partner constantly look for snacks every night? Put together a custom gift basket full of their favorite sweet and savory treats! Make it even more special by adding snacks associated with your first kiss or first date.
