Top 10 anniversary gifts

When celebrating your anniversary, you want to do so in style. This is a day for the two of you to share your love and appreciation with a tangible gift that helps keep the mystery and romance alive. Your early anniversary gifts may be simple to choose, but over the years, keeping gifts unique and surprising can become more difficult, but not impossible.

Be inventive with gift-giving with the help of www.anniversarygiftsbyyear.org which provides the theme from which you choose your gift, such as silver for a 25th wedding anniversary and gold for a 50th. The themes can be taken literally, as in the above cases, or think outside the box for a gift that your beloved actually wants and that remains one of the top 10 anniversary gifts:

1. Flowers

Rather than flowers that wilt within a week, consider a framed floral print in a design that fits your home décor. Plant a tree in your garden or in another special place where you can watch it grow over the years.

2. Jewelry

For milestone anniversaries, choose diamonds and precious metals to feel like royalty. Earrings that can be worn during the day and dressed up with a necklace to be the most glamorous among friends.

3. Home Decor

If you prefer not to wear jewelry, dazzle with home décor. If you are a hopeless romantic, a platinum-dipped rose will celebrate your partnership, surviving hard times that we all face in one way or another. This is an elegant rose that will be a daily reminder of your love.

4. Linen

Cotton could be matching bathrooms, new bedsheets, or even matching underwear. If you had cotton sheets on your second anniversary, by your seventh, you could upgrade to a silk sheet set for a romantic snuggle fit for a queen. As you share a bed, this is a gift for you too.

5. Technology and Appliances

You can stretch the idea of appliances to being a camera, such as a Go-pro or a pet-at-home camera that can monitor Fido while you’re out of the house. Agree together beforehand before you upgrade to a fancy fridge to mark your anniversary. You have an excuse to gift an iPhone XS Max since fruit is the theme of this anniversary year.

6. Leather

Leather could be a calfskin leather weekender bag that will age beautifully over the next decade while also hinting at weekends away together. If your getaway is further afield, a stylish three-piece luggage set with 360-degree wheels will make navigating an airport painless.

7. Chocolate

Chocolate covered strawberries are a favorite, even if a cliché. Have these as a dessert at home after a meal out. A designer leather laptop bag is stylish for upscale occasions, while practical enough for everyday use.

8. Spa

For an anniversary where you just want to stop and take stock. To appreciate getting through the year together and take time to relax. Have a couples’ massage, a manicure, and a pedicure and enjoy the steam rooms and other treatments on offer.

9. Dinner

Invite as many people as you want to a dinner party at home and have a chef cater for the event so you can both relax in the company of those who mean the most to you. Alternatively, hire a private room in a restaurant for the whole night.

10. Perfume

f there are bottles of unopened fragrances, consider a perfume bottle from their favourite designer or in their favourite style instead. Classic designs from Lalique or bold geometric designs in metal. Choose their favourite style.
