Anniversaries are the perfect opportunity to demonstrate the love you have for your partner, and you’ll have the power to show them just how much they mean to you. But with great power comes great responsibility, and you’ll want to get it just right, particularly if it’s a landmark year.
Whilst the old custom of getting a present themed around paper, wood, silk etc for the relevant number of years is still a popular approach for many couples, there is no point sticking to tradition if you don’t think your partner will appreciate the sentiment. If you’re completely stuck for ideas, but want to mark the occasion with something meaningful, here are three presents that they’re sure to love and cherish forever.
Gone are the days of disposable cameras, where you’d be faced with a laborious wait just to see how the photos turned out. Nowadays, there are so many options when it comes to photo-themed presents that can be designed and ordered online, from calendars, to phone cases, to wall art.
Or you can always keep it simple with a photo album that you can flick through together. Perhaps you can accompany the photos with your own personalised captions, or some meaningful quotes. This is one way to ensure your gift is completely unique. What better way to get excited about the years to come than by reminiscing about all the special moments you’ve already shared?
If you’re looking for something even more meaningful than a standard item of jewellery, why not give your partner a stunning eternity ring to demonstrate your ongoing commitment to one another? This special piece of jewellery can be a great way of saying “I do” all over again. Depending on how your partner wears their rings, you can find a style that complements the rest of their collection, so the eternity band can sit perfectly alongside their other pieces.
When buying an eternity ring, you’ll have the choice between a full band and half band – this refers to the diamond coverage around the ring. If they typically favour comfort over extravagance, then a half band will probably be the best option. But if you want to go all out, and have the budget to match your ambition, then look no further than the full band option, which is sure to attract admiring glances when perched on their finger.
Bear with us on this one. We’re not talking about a new wall clock, but instead why not offer up your precious time? Particularly as relationships develop and other life commitments become a factor, it can be more difficult to set time aside for just the two of you. Plan a set amount of dates for the next six months or so, or just put a collection of date ideas in a personalised container for them to pick out as and when.
Not only does this gift mean you can celebrate your anniversary for longer, but it also ensures that you’ll have the chance to spend some quality time with your loved one. Perhaps you could theme the ideas around the changing of the seasons, or even put your creativity to the test with alphabet dating.
It might be a gift card or a matching set that shows your love and affection for your partner in a deeper level. The secret pockets for hugs and touches are the added value to a simple yet timeless design and are descreet enough for the clothing to be worn at home, work or a hike. You can choose from a variety of different colours and styles, adding a quality piecee to your wardrobe.
This gift will be great for any couple, but especially appreciated by those whose love language is physical touch!
