Celebrating your anniversary is a special time for you to commemorate the time you and your loved one have been together. Although the anniversary itself is fun to celebrate, selecting the right gift that shows just how much you love your wife or girlfriend can be a bit of a conundrum. Depending on how long you’ve been together, the type of gift you get her can definitely vary. You also have to take into consideration what she likes and her personality.
You also should think about the tone of your present. For example, you don’t want to get something overly-sentimental for a one-year anniversary, and you certainly don’t want to just give her the standard flowers and chocolate on your five-year anniversary.
Regardless of the length of your relationship, you definitely want to make sure you give her something truly special to mark that truly special day.
Luckily, we’re here to help you out in picking the right type of gift for your anniversary. Our carefully curated list details special types of gifts that you and her both can enjoy. Check out our list below for some inspiration for you when picking out that perfect anniversary present for her.
Star Map Of A Special Date
A new trend in anniversary presents, especially ones that are a new and creative twist on the ultimate romantic gift, is presenting her with a map of the stars in the night sky on a special date that is important to you both. Whether this is the night of your wedding, your first date, or even the birth of a child, getting a framed picture of the stars’ alignment on that special date will leave her taken aback. How it works is really fascinating too.
Many different companies can produce star maps and have them beautifully framed as well. To create a personalized star map, a company that specializes in this will use some sort of star catalog that they have access to where they take a date or time, past or present, and use that information to find where the stars were aligned.
They will then take the image on the stars’ alignment and create a quality printout that is framed for your viewing pleasure. You can also specifically state what the star alignment is on the final product so you and she can enjoy it for years to come and even show it off to all of your friends and family.
Personalized jewelry is also an exceptional choice for her as an anniversary present. Nothing says I love you more than a custom necklace, ring, or bracelet.
Especially if she already wears jewelry daily, gifting her with an engraved piece will leave her feeling special and loved. If you aren’t sure what pieces are out there, the following are excellent choices for engraved jewelry that you can make uniquely for her.
- Coordinates - Find the GPS coordinates of a place special to you both or for her, and you can get a piece of jewelry engraved with this on it. This is remarkably special because the coordinates will signify something you two share together. It’s like having a secret only you two know about, which makes coordinate jewelry that much more endearing.
- Birth flower - You can also get an engraving of her birth flower on a jewelry pendant as well. Birth flowers are unique in that a type of flower is associated with the month that you were born. Once you find out her birth flower, surprise her with an engraved piece that she most likely won’t see coming.
- Zodiac - Like birth flowers, everyone has a zodiac sign that is based on their birth date. Especially if she loves reading horoscopes and loves astrology, this would definitely be a great gift for her. You can choose from engravings either of the star constellations of her astrology sign or the actual astrology sign itself. Both would look great and allow her to proudly show off a bit of herself.
- Initials - Engraved initials are also a great choice for engraved jewelry. Not only will it make her feel special wearing a piece of jewelry that has her name, but it can also be worn simply or dressed up. It’s a great staple for any of her outfit ensembles and can be worn for any occasion. She’ll love the fact she can proudly show off her initials with a versatile piece.
You can never go wrong when gifting her a customized piece of jewelry. She will love wearing a piece of jewelry that was designed specifically for her in mind. And, every time she wears it, she’ll most certainly be reminded of how special you made and continue to make her feel.
Speaking of customized gifts, a customized ornament is also another great anniversary present, especially if your special day falls around or on the holidays.
You can either find a company that specializes in crafting high-quality ornaments, or you can create one on your own. Have fun and get creative with making the ornament. You can include pictures of you two together or one of your favorites. Make it more personal and add a date or location that is significant to you both.
She will absolutely be thrilled to receive it, and we bet that thrill will peak each and every year she puts it out for holiday decorations.
Her Favorite Perfume
Most women have a favorite perfume, and you have most likely smelled it. It's that one scent that if you smell anywhere else when you aren’t with her, you automatically assume that she is nearby.
If you aren’t sure what kind of perfume she wears, definitely ask around to her friends and family. They will either know which type she wears or can give you recommendations on ones that are similar that she would also like.
A designer handbag is always a great gift as well, especially if she is a fashionista and has a carefully curated handbag collection (and believe us, if she does, you will know). If you aren’t sure what type of name brand handbags she likes, try complimenting her on her handbags when she wears them out as a sly way of figuring out the brand.
She will most likely tell you where she got it, and that will be your in to find other designer handbags you can give her for her collection.
If you both are pet parents, getting her a pillow shaped like your beloved fur-baby is another great anniversary present, especially if you both adopted the pet together as a couple. Most places will take a picture you send in and either create the pillow to be shaped like your pet with their picture on them or you can get a standard pillow with the pet’s picture on it. Either way, it’s a nice and whimsical anniversary present she’ll undoubtedly love and cherish.
If your lucky lady loves wine, getting her a monthly wine subscription would be a great anniversary present. Since there is literally a subscription service for pretty much everything, getting her a wine subscription should be easy.
There are many different types of subscription services, and you can even personalize it to suit her wine needs, such as a monthly subscription for different types of red wines to wine and cheese pairing subscriptions. And, the best part of it all? You can even enjoy this gift, as well.
Make Her Feel Special On Your Anniversary
From personalized jewelry, perfume, handbags, and wine subscription boxes, you have plenty of options to make her feel extraordinarily special on your anniversary. These gift selections are great, whether you have been dating for a year or married for ten.
Any one of these gifts would be an exceptional choice for the exceptional woman in your life.
