A wedding anniversary is a big event, and yet it is a very personal one to the couple, too. Choosing a gift for your wife can be a challenge, particularly since you must think of something new to give each year.
Many people gain inspiration from the item that represents that many years of marriage. For example, the first year is paper. Two years of marriage are represented by cotton, and three equates to leather. The fifth year is wood, and the 10th is tin (or aluminium, if you prefer). And we all know the silver wedding anniversary is marked at 25 years of marriage, with other valuable items marking other years.
But supposing you aren’t inspired by the item representing your year this year? Perhaps you want to buy something more unusual, or simply something that will be treasured both now and for many years to come. If you are stuck for ideas, we have some great suggestions that could just solve the challenge of choosing an anniversary gift for her.
Finding the ideal gift can be a struggle, but if you think along the lines given above, it can give you some good ideas to work from. Let’s suppose you are about to reach your fifth wedding anniversary, for example. There are plenty of great gifts made from wood that would mark the occasion beautifully.
A good example would be a wooden chopping board, available in a variety of designs. The Personalised Initials Heart-Shaped Chopping Board is a stunning gift, marked with a heart and an arrow going through it, and with up to five initials to complete the look.
Yet perhaps you would like something a little more romantic or personal to celebrate the anniversary. After all, while the anniversary years do give you a guide that can spark some ideas, they do not need to be followed if you have a better idea. For example, our Personalised Message in a Bottle allows plenty of room to write a personal message to your wife. The bottle contains sand and shells, and of course, the message you have created, printed on parchment paper and tied with a red satin ribbon. With four font styles for the message and one or two initials to add to the charm the ribbon is tied to, this provides ample room for lots of creativity.
If your wife has a collection of jewellery, you might also consider a gift that isn’t related to an anniversary year, but instead offers a practical and thoughtful alternative. The Personalised Rose Gold Glass Jewellery Box is simply stunning, featuring rose gold edges and glass panels. Your message, which can be up to 50 characters in length, can be etched onto the top glass panel or rose-gold filled in the same position, to match the beautiful edging. It would be the ideal place to store some jewellery items, to ensure she always sees the thoughtful message you created.
Does your loved one have a hobby or interest that might spark an idea? For instance, does she love photography? If so, perhaps the Personalised Oak Photo Cube Keepsake Box might provide the perfect way to display some of her favourite photos. With room for two lines of personalisation both at the top and the bottom of the lid, this cube is stylish and can have a photo displayed on each side and on the lid, too.
Alternatively, if she adores fresh flowers, an Engraved, Hand-Cut Heart Vase would be the perfect place to display them. The vase includes Swarovski detailing on the front, and has room for three lines of personalisation, too. Why not surprise her with a beautiful bouquet on your anniversary, and then surprise her further with this gorgeous vase as well?
Of course, you may decide to get more than one gift to mark the special date. If your wife loves interior décor, this charming Wooden Heart Hanging Decoration would be just the thing to add to any room. It bears the message ‘I love you to the moon and back’ and you can add your wife’s name above the message to complete the sentiment.
Even if you still have a few months until your wedding anniversary, there is never a better time to start exploring the options than now. With lots of time to think about what to buy and how to personalise your gift, you’re sure to find the right item for this year.
Remember, think about the year you are celebrating and consider whether the item representing that year brings you any inspiration. If not, there are many other ways you can find the ideal gift for your wife.
