If you’re too cool for traditional anniversary gifts like jewelry, flowers and chocolate, but don’t have any fresh ideas, you’re in luck! Here are a few ideas that will surprise your partner and ensure you have an exciting, fun and romantic anniversary. Take a look and don’t hesitate to use these tips as gift inspiration!
If you want to surprise your SO every month, not just on your anniversary, then you might want to check out various subscription boxes. This trend started a few years ago, but now it really exploded, so you can subscribe to almost anything from beauty and fashion to books and food! So, find something your partner likes, search the internet for boxes and you’ll surprise them over and over for months (you can buy 3-, 6- or 12-month subscription boxes).
Flowers are most people’s go-to option when choosing an anniversary gift. Even though they are pretty, they die quickly and don’t leave a lasting impression. So, if you want to get your partners something equally pretty and aromatic but more durable, opt for a small herb garden! This gift is perfect for aspiring cooks and experienced chefs alike and it will provide your SO with fresh herbs they can grow themselves!
Everyone enjoys a tasty drink from time to time, and what better occasion to pop a top-shelf bottle of booze than your anniversary? So, find a quality whiskey distillery like Archie Rose Distillery and treat your better half to a nice bottle of white rye or tailored whiskey.
Combine it with some fruit, dark chocolate or cheese for the best taste and full tasting experience. Plus, if your partner is a real whiskey aficionado, why not take them to a fun distillery tour or buy them drinks at a distillery bar. It’s a great anniversary date idea which both of you will enjoy!
There’s no better gift for a gadget freak than more gadgets. Luckily, today you can find so many useful, fun and practical entertainment, information and assistance gadgets your tech-savvy partner will love. Think smart speakers that can help with easy music streaming, recipe instructions and calls or consider getting a smart thermostat that will ensure your home temperature is always perfect. Want something more exotic and fun? Why not get an automatic card shuffler for your partner’s poker nights or a smart coffee mug for your coffee lover!
Couples who love to travel can always take a small vacation on their anniversary. The best destination is one that means something special to your partner or your relationship. Maybe recreate your first trip as a couple or visit your spouse’s homeland. You can even have your vows renewed if it’s your major milestone anniversary like your 10th, 25th or 50th year together. Just try to keep the destination a surprise as long as you can for the best effect!
Spend the day off
If you’re not in the mood to travel or you don’t have that much money to splurge, you can always have a fun and romantic staycation! Get a day off from work, turn off your phones and give your undivided attention to your partner. Start your day with a chill brunch, organize a home spa pampering day and finish your night with a romantic dinner for two (and some fun between the sheets!) This will cost you very little, but achieve a huge result especially if you really make an effort to organize a fun and romantic day!
Of course, feel free to tweak these gift ideas and make them fit your budget, lifestyle and preferences. However, it’s very hard to go wrong with any of the options. So, hit the stores and start organizing in advance, and you’re bound to give your partner an anniversary they’ll never forget!
