A wedding represents the spiritual connection between a couple – the day they formally cemented their love for one another and made a commitment to each other in front of family and friends. Getting married is normally one of the most special, most momentous occasions in many people’s lives and your wedding date is an anniversary to be celebrated long into the future.
However, as the years go by after getting married, it can often be tricky to keep coming up with ideas for a present that truly reflects your feelings for your significant other. If your partner is a patriot, it would be logical to get him American gifts, and if he is a firefighter, you will get him some gifts for firefighters. If you’re struggling to come up with an innovative, original or uplifting anniversary gift, below are some ideas that might help inspire you.
Book a personal boudoir photo shoot
If you want to truly show your love for your partner, there can be few better ways than booking a personal photo shoot so you can give them beautiful photos that demonstrate passion, care and intimacy. A bridal boudoir photography shoot isn’t just for brides to be – it’s also the perfect gift for those already married. The resulting images will truly reflect the person you are now – pictures that are sure to be a treasured gift on receipt and remain so for many, many years to come.
Buy an engraved, personalized gift
Sure, there are any number of off-the-shelf gifts you could buy your partner, but surely nothing says love more than a present with an engraved, personalized message. For ideas, think back to the times when you were first dating, the secrets you shared, the places you went or the pet names you had for one another. Using these in an engraving will go a long way to showing you still care and still remember when you were getting together. Alternatively, you could use simpler ideas like the date of your wedding or perhaps an engraving of a picture.
Book an experience you’ll never forget
While it’s unlikely you’ll find a gift that quite matches the thrill and joy of your wedding day, there is still a huge range of special days, activities or events you could book that will do a great job of making your anniversary truly memorable.
For more relaxed ideas, think about boating trips or special activities based on common interests you already share. If you’re looking for something a little more out-of-the-ordinary, try once-in-a-lifetime ideas like skydiving, a trip scuba diving or bungee jumping.
Book a holiday to a special place
Chances are when you were dating, you will have gone to multiple places together that you’ve never revisited. Alternatively, there may be a location your spouse has talked of going to, but you never found the time or didn’t have the finances at the time.
Revisiting a special place you both know can be a great way of rekindling the love you felt at the time and will undoubtedly help show your partner how much you care and how much you remember and value the time you spent together.
