It’s wedding season and for many of us, that also means it’s anniversary season. It’s time to celebrate the one you cherish most and show them how much you care, today and everyday. For many of us anniversaries can creep up, so plan ahead, set a yearly reminder in that calendar and make this time of year a time you focus on you and your special someone. From a once-in-a-lifetime hot air balloon ride to a personalized game with your name literally on it, we’ve rounded up some fun special gift ideas for your one and only.
We’ve rounded up some fun special gift ideas for your one and only.
Something to Do Together
Sometimes you just need a little push to turn off those phones, put away your to-do lists and spend some QT together. That’s why we are a fan of any “activity gift” for a couple’s anniversary. Plan a romantic picnic and with this Picnic Time Romance Picnic Basket, gift a Personalized Hearts Four Across Game or get a monthly Date Box sent straight to your doorstep.
Go With Tradition
Each anniversary year has its’ own traditional type of gift: first year is paper, second is cotton, third is leather and so on. For year number 1, get your vows printed into Soundwave Art, have a Custom Family Portrait drawn or have Personalized Stationery made with your new last name. A photo gift is another perfect idea for year one (see below). For year two, try some cuddly Personalized Pillows and for year three try Monogrammed Desk Accessories or a keep-forever handbag or wallet.
No Better Time For Photo Gifts
You have the wedding photos, the engagement photos and depending on what year you are celebrating, probably years worth of special family photoshoots. Don’t let all of those memories stay stuck on your devices, give a gift that lets you showcase those special moments. Try these Personalized Photo Coasters, a Social Print Studios Daily Calendar or Artifact Uprisings Photo Display Box.
A Trip to Remember
Similar to the activity idea, go a step further and romance one another with a little getaway. Even if it’s just a one night stay-cation — let your anniversary be a time where you force yourself to just get away and reconnect. Gift each other an out-of-town Skydiving Session, a Hot Air Balloon Ride or book a one-of-a-kind Airbnb like this Malibu Airstream or an Atlanta Tree House.
No matter what you give for your anniversary, just focus on making it special and sentimental. It’s a great yearly time to check in, tune out your crazy work load or your teething toddler and focus on making each other happy. There’s nothing more romantic than that.
