Marking the date of your special day with gifts for one another is a great way to keep the romance alive and show you care. Unfortunately with each passing year, it can be harder and harder to buy for your spouse but plan ahead and you can give them the perfect anniversary surprise. Make big plans for the milestones in favour of annual anniversary gifts and give them memories that will last a lifetime.
Men of all ages hold a special place in their heart for cars, particularly sports cars. An anniversary gift that is sure to go down well is a driving experience gift voucher. Getting behind the wheel of a race car or an Aston Martin will be his boyhood dream come true.
For the sporty outdoors type, you might want to consider booking a tennis court, hockey or football pitch for the day. Alternatively if he’s interested in paintballing or go karting, book a day session to enjoy with his friends. If he prefers quiet hobbies over adrenaline-fuelled sports, feed his passion with thoughtful gifts and experiences such as an antique chess set or a golf club membership.
One of the most fail-safe gifts to surprise your wife with is a spa day. Hours of relaxation and pampering will not go unappreciated and if you invest in 2 spa day passes, she can take a friend and make a girl’s day out of it. For a truly unique anniversary present, why not surprise her by adopting her favourite animal or naming a rose after her. This is unbelievably romantic and the thought will last longer than a store bought bouquet of flowers.
There are many anniversary gifts to suit both parties such as a romantic weekend break or a hot air balloon ride together. Much like naming a flower, dedicating a star in their name can also be a thoughtful and loving gift for the man or woman in your life.
To celebrate an anniversary milestone such as 20, 30 or 50 years, throw a surprise party for your other half. To make it extra special, try creating a theme party with a photo garland of treasured memories and moments together, organise a playlist of all their favourite songs and invite family and some of their oldest friends, just to show you’ve done your homework.
A simple yet beautiful gift that is always appreciated is a classic high quality watch similar to styles in the stunning range by Marc Jacobs at Ernest Jones. From gold-plated strap designs to show-stopping bracelet time pieces, you’re sure to find something they will treasure for many anniversaries to come.
