There are many options for anniversary gifts—from something that belongs in a rom-com to something that is kind of lame, almost like you just started dating. In other words, there’s a lot that can go wrong with wedding anniversary gifts. This article will give y’all some unique gift ideas for your spouse when the time comes.
Tickets to an Event
Experience-based gifts are always memorable and meaningful. I have surprised my spouse with concert tickets before and they loved it. Y’all could get anything as simple as movie tickets, to something as extravagant as Broadway show tickets.
Another excellent idea is surprising them with a trip somewhere. Maybe y’all are into beaches or cruises. I’m certainly not that person, but I would love a trip to the mountains or Europe. So, it depends on what they would enjoy—be sure to tailor it to your partner’s tastes.
I’m not a very extravagant person, so maybe y’all are more like me and you want to stay home. Here are some meaningful anniversary gifts for your spouse that can be done at home.
One of the best gifts anyone can give is their presence. I really value quality time with my spouse. To me, there’s nothing better than staying at home, making a nice dinner, and watching a movie or playing a game together. I know my spouse and I love to have a laidback evening just being present with each other.
Have y’all received a handwritten note recently? If the answer is yes, then y’all know how much more it means than a text or email. I love to write a bunch of notes for my spouse that they can find throughout the house. Write whatever you want, but I usually stick to things like, you are my world, you’re my favorite, and so on. I’ve even seen couples write their vows down and give them to each other to keep wherever they want.
Similar to handwritten notes, the most meaningful anniversary gifts for your spouse are handmade. Maybe y’all are crafty and can make something from scratch. I’m not that creative and typically depend on Pinterest, but do whatever you want! Some of my favorite gifts to make include a scrapbook with memories or ticket stubs. Another idea is to make a picture frame with a timeline of where you started as a couple and where y’all are now.
Our spouses deserve the best—I mean, they have to put up with us, right? We may think we’re easy to deal with, but we all know that we’re definitely not at times. Give them your best; they’ll appreciate it.
