No matter how long you’ve been together, make sure your significant other feels appreciated on your upcoming anniversary with a great gift. Whether you’re celebrating your first year together or approaching your diamond anniversary, there are all sorts of ideas out there that fit within the traditional celebratory milestones. So, if you’re searching for the best anniversary gift ideas, look no further. Here are some of the top gifts for those couples celebrating the most important moments in their relationship — let’s take a look!
First Anniversary Gifts
When the first anniversary approaches, make sure you give your significant other something that shows how much you cherish them. As the “paper” or “clock” anniversary, the gift is supposed to symbolize the passage of time over this crucial point in your relationship. In that vein, you can give anything from a framed art print, a handmade card, or an anniversary journal where the two of you can record memories from the previous year and into the future. Or, pick up a high-value timepiece that certainly fits the theme of this anniversary.
Fifth Anniversary Gifts
The fifth anniversary is important because if you’ve made it this long, your relationship has proven to be a solid one. This milestone is known as the “wood” anniversary. For a husband or long-term boyfriend, he’s sure to love grabbing his favorite stogies from a new, engraved cigar box made from high-quality wood. For her, she’ll appreciate keeping her most prized jewelry possessions in her own personalized jewelry box.
10th Anniversary Gifts
After a decade of romance, mark the occasion by picking up something for the “tin” anniversary. The man in your life who loves dressing up is sure to love a set of tin cufflinks that are as stylish as they are functional. For her, consider anything from an engraved tin wine chiller to a stylish set of tin candlesticks to gorgeous tin earrings.
25th Anniversary Gifts
You’ve been together a quarter of a century at this point — are there even any gifts left to give? Of course! For your “silver” anniversary, you have a number of options. This engraved silver platter, for example, can be proudly displayed around the home and it makes a fantastic heirloom for any children you’ve had over the years. Or, check out an engraved family tree with a silver base to commemorate the growth of your family.
50th Anniversary Gifts
The 50th anniversary, or the “gold” anniversary, means you’ve spent a half-century together and are still going strong — congratulations! When the time comes, give something special in the form of a custom-date gold necklace that’s personalized with your wedding date. For the guys, you can’t go wrong with something like this personalized gold compass. Every time they look at it, they’ll think fondly of you.
60th Anniversary Gifts
It’s quite an accomplishment to make it to your “diamond” anniversary. At 65 years, there may not be much that surprises you as a couple anymore, but you can still show each other that same level of love as when you first met. To mark such significant progress, it may be time to upgrade your wedding rings for the next 65 years — visit any number of local jewelry stores to find something the both of you are sure to love.
