Many people find gift buying for their significant other a challenge when trying to think of something creative and meaningful. This goes for any occasion, but it can be even tougher to find the perfect gift when it’s a special anniversary.
Shopping or planning for a gift should be an exciting opportunity to show your significant other how well you know them and how much you want to show them that they’re loved. This doesn’t have to cost an extortionate amount of money, and the perfect anniversary gift can be anything that has meaning for both of you.
Here are just some ideas to get you started.
Make it an Experience
If you’re struggling to find the perfect item to wrap up, or perhaps you’d rather create memories than gifts, then planning an experience can be a great alternative. It may not even cost a penny if you have the right homemade experience in mind, such as stargazing or taking a walk to a special spot.
If there’s something you know your partner would love to do — or maybe something you always said you’d do together one day — an experience can be a great way to celebrate your time together rather than unwrapping a gift.
Jewelry is Always a Great Choice
The ideal aspect of jewelry is that it’s so versatile. You can always find something new, exciting, and different when it comes to jewelry, and a piece that truly reflects the person or the occasion you’re looking to celebrate. So if you’re looking for an option that you know they’re bound to love, jewelry can be that choice.
For an anniversary, you could personalize jewelry by engraving a message or choosing a stone or metal which best reflects the anniversary you’re celebrating. You may even want to look for something a little different, like Orocal’s gold nugget jewelry.
Whatever you choose in the jewelry department, it’s a safe bet that it will always be loved, enjoyed, and worn for years to come.
Try to Avoid Items They Need
While a lot of occasions like Christmas and birthdays can be great opportunities for “You said you needed this” to help loved ones out, anniversaries should be special and romantic. That means avoiding items like the latest kitchen implement or something to help with the daily routine.
Instead, think about items they may never expect or have only wished of having.
Add Some Quirks
Because anniversary gifts are there to celebrate how long you’ve been together and how well you know each other, it’s always fun to add extra meaning. Even the simplest gifts can be made more special if you add extra factors, like buying three gifts to celebrate three years together. Or maybe a gift that reflects your very first date. You could also try putting a quirky spin on items that relate to the amount of time you’ve been together; for example, paper for one year together could be paper tickets to a show or a limited-edition copy of their favorite book.
