If you’re looking for a special way to express your love and appreciation for your significant other on your anniversary, personalized and customized gifts are always a great choice. These gifts are unique, thoughtful, and show that you’ve put a lot of effort into choosing something that truly represents your relationship.
Customized or Personalized Presents
A customized or personalized gift is a great way to show your partner how much you care. You can have a portrait of the two of you created from a photo or choose a piece of jewelry that features your partner’s name or initials. A custom name necklace with her birthstone added to the design is a perfect choice. Another great option is a leather tote bag or carryall monogrammed with your other half’s initials, along with personalized stationery set hidden inside.
Traditional Anniversary Gifts
Each year of marriage is traditionally marked with a gift made from a different material, and following this custom is a lovely way to celebrate your milestones. For example, paper is the traditional first-anniversary gift, and you can present a beautiful love letter wrapped around a rose or hidden within the pages of a special book. Wood marks the fifth anniversary, and you can choose a set of solid wood frames to house photos of the two of you together, or a wooden planter set, or a personalized jewelry box in polished rosewood.
Aluminum is the traditional tenth-anniversary metal in the US, and it’s tin in the UK, representing how a marriage needs to be pliable to be successful. For aluminum, a fountain pen, luxe hammered bowl, or an Apple watch are possibilities, while for tin, you could choose a pretty pair of earrings made from this metal or a personalized tin license plate. Fifteen years of marriage are marked with crystal to represent the glittering love between the parties that is clear to see, and you can choose an engraved set of crystal glasses, crystal jewelry, or a crystal vase.
Gifts of china commemorate the twentieth anniversary, and you can think outside of the box for a unique present that she’ll love. Silver marks twenty-five years of matrimony, and you can choose personalized silver jewelry or a silver champagne bucket. For thirty years of wedded bliss, a pearl present is on the cards, and you can pick out an elegant pair of pearl stud earrings, a seed pearl-embellished cashmere sweater, or a spectacular potted clematis plant in the Ocean Pearl variety.
A fortieth anniversary is very special, and ruby reflects this; consider a ruby and gold gate bracelet, a luxe handbag in a ruby-colored fabric, or a bouquet of Ruby Wedding roses. Gold is the traditional metal that is gifted to celebrate a fiftieth wedding anniversary, and you can choose a beautiful necklace and earrings set in yellow or rose gold or an engraved watch. For something unexpected, opt for a family tree design made from gold roses and discs, each of which bears family members’ names and the dates of their own.
They are unique, thoughtful, and show that you have put in a lot of effort to choose something that truly represents your relationship. Whether you are celebrating your first or fiftieth anniversary, these gifts will make her feel special and loved.
