A Perfect Gift On Paper: Celebrating the Joys of Your First Anniversary

Comments Off on A Perfect Gift On Paper: Celebrating the Joys of Your First Anniversary
It’s the time of year when love is in the air and the grandest of all occasions, an anniversary, is right around the corner. Don’t wait until the last minute to show your husband how much you care! Get creative and find the perfect anniversary gift that says “I love you”.
A little bit of thoughtfulness goes a long way. The best way to show your appreciation is by going the extra mile. Whether it’s a small gesture or a grand gesture, you’re sure to reach his heart with a meaningful and thoughtful gift.
Look for a memento. A physical reminder of your appreciation for your husband can be the most meaningful gift of all. It’s something he can look at and be reminded of your love and commitment. An engraved watch, cufflinks or a sentimental frame of a wedding photo will make sure he knows you still appreciate him after all these years.
Create something unique. Customized gifts are always a great way to show your appreciation. Use a photo of you two on your wedding day or give him a customized beer mug with a funny message. These gifts will be something he cherishes and pulls out every time he needs a reminder of your everlasting love.
Go the extra mile. Do something special to show him how much you care. Take him out for a romantic dinner, plan a hike in the national park or take him to a show. If you’re feeling extra generous, surprise him with a weekend getaway or a weekend alone in your home. Taking the time to surprise him will show him that you appreciate the life he’s built with you.
Don’t forget about experiences. Instead of giving him something materialistic, opt for giving him memories. Did he mention wanting to go on a hot air balloon ride? Did he wish to attend that music festival he never had the chance to check out? Give him experiences he’ll never forget.
Show your appreciation with a gift basket. Nothing says “I love you” more than a personalized basket full of his favorite things. Gourmet foods, unique beers, a new video game or a new pair of sneakers – no matter what his taste is, he’ll appreciate your thoughtful package. After all, it’s the thought that counts!
Make it all about him. Most likely, your husband always puts you first. Get him something special and make it all about him. Think of a gift that really reflects him, like a set of golf balls or a subscription to his favorite magazine. Whatever it is, make sure it puts a smile on his face.
Give him something to look forward to. If you’re not sure what to get him this year, why not gift him something to look forward to? Buy him tickets to a show or concert he’s been mentioning for a while, or even plan a weekend getaway for the two of you.
Whatever you decide to do, remember that your appreciation for your husband should come from the heart. Forget the materialistic gifts and think of the small gestures that will make him feel loved and appreciated. And don’t forget to pour on the romance this anniversary!
