Choosing an anniversary gift can pose a special challenge. After all, an anniversary gift should do more than please him; it also serves as a reminder that you truly know and cherish him. With that in mind, here are some suggestions for creative anniversary gifts for the man in your life.
Engraving or stenciling his name on a present says you know what he likes. If he’s the active type, consider a monogrammed tennis racket, engraved golf club, or personalized baseball bat. For the couch potato sports fan, try a personalized jersey from one of his favorite teams. If he is not into sports, consider having an anniversary message engraved on a bracelet, or giving him a wallet or belt with his initials and the date of your wedding. Personalized tools or a tool kit also will fit the bill.
Most guys like an evening out on the town. For a special anniversary gift, consider premium ticket options, like club seats with waitress service or a private box at a sports event. Many arenas and concert halls offer access to private dining and entertainment areas for a fee. Adding this upgrade to your gift will make the evening all the more memorable. If he plays golf, paying for a round at an exclusive local club will score you points in the thoughtful spouse category.
All men have their fantasies. Having a set of glamour photographs of yourself made at a local photographer can jump-start a romantic evening. For a gift that lasts, try creating a set of romance coupons, allowing him to turn in the cards for some romantic activities throughout the year. You also can make trip to the local adult fantasy store or search online for services that will deliver an evening’s worth of toys, lingerie and other fun items.
A Quiet Evening
Men sometimes find romance hard, even stressful. Give him a break by arranging a quiet anniversary evening at home. Order pizza, put on some music or a DVD, and relax. Let the conversation go where it will. You may find the low-key approach leads to a romantic evening you’ll remember for years.
