Did you know that over 33% of men have forgotten their anniversaries? If you’re in this boat, then you’ll want to make extra-sure to impress your wife for not only this year, but all the rest to come. You have a lot of making up to do, after all!
You might think you know what your girlfriend or wife wants, but the fact is, there are so many great ideas out there.
If you want to give the perfect things to your significant other, then keep reading. We’ll show you some fantastic anniversary gift ideas for her!
Whether it’s your first anniversary or 10th, it’s never a bad idea to get an anniversary journal! As the years go by, the good times might start to blur together, or even worse, you might even accidentally forget some of them.
An excellent way to keep track of all your wonderful memories is to gift your love an anniversary journal! These are printed with entry pages for every anniversary, up to the 60th and even beyond. It’ll make it very easy to jot down your memories, as there will be prompts on each page.
If you plan on having kids, you can even show them in the future everything you did as a couple! This is an anniversary gift that can end up being very sentimental and passed onto the next generation.
Bucket List Book
On a similar note, you can also get your significant other a bucket list book. This can be a book of dreams you wish to accomplish together, and hopefully, one day you can tick off every item on the list!
The 2 of you might already have some bucket list items in mind, but should you ever run out of ideas, there are plenty more out there. So browse these ideas together, fill out your book, then set out to make all your dreams come true!
Pushpin World Map
Do the 2 of you love traveling together? Got a few places written down in that bucket list book? Then complement that book with a pushpin world map.
This beautiful anniversary gift can be hung on the wall of your living room, where both you and guests can see it. As you check off dream destinations, you can then add a pushpin on your world map.
Hopefully, as the years go by, you’ll flood that map with a bunch of new pushpins!
Does your girlfriend or wife work herself to the bone? Then she deserves some “me” time, especially if she’s very stressed out.
Nudge her in the direction of relaxation by gifting her a gorgeous (and large!) spa kit. Make sure that it doesn’t just include nice bath bubbles, salts, and bombs, but also some extras you know she’ll enjoy while relaxing.
For example, throw in some e-books to put on her e-reader and a nice bottle of wine. She’ll surely appreciate that you’ve gone the extra mile to ensure she has everything she needs to have a fantastic time pampering herself!
This can be a real treat if the 2 of you have a favorite movie, TV show, or video game that you share tons of inside jokes. Have you, your significant other, and any pets or children drawn as characters in any of the above.
The look on your sweetie’s face when they unwrap the gift will be worth whatever you spend on the artwork!
What’s great is there are tons of very talented artists online who will take commissions at very reasonable prices. They’ll work with you to personalize every detail so the art is truly your own.
If you’re newlyweds and/or have just moved into a new house, custom artwork is perfect for filling up empty space on your walls and making a house feel like a home.
Your sweetie probably drinks a cup or two of coffee or tea a day, just to power on. Give her some extra energy by reminding her of how much you love her with every sip she takes!
An anniversary mug will definitely do the trick, especially if it says something slightly offensive but amusing on it.
Whether she has no mugs or a huge collection, an anniversary mug will be welcome in her cupboard. And if this is a hit with her, you can get her one every year so her collection keeps growing!
Personalized Map Coasters
You don’t want your other half to get watermarks all over her nice tables. Even if she already has coasters, they’re probably pretty plain. Some personalized map coasters can really add some character to the dining room!
Some online artists can customize these coasters to center around neighborhoods that hold meaning to the 2 of you. For example, the coasters can hone in on the neighborhood of your first date, first house together, or where you live now.
If you feel like spending more on this anniversary gift, then try planning an entire romantic getaway! It doesn’t have to be for long; just a weekend out of town can do the trick.
Make sure you take care of all the arrangements so your significant other doesn’t have to worry about anything besides packing. This includes accommodations, travel, meals, and activities.
This can get you major brownie points, as you’ll show just how much you appreciate everything she does for you every day!
