Romantic Anniversaryv Gift Ideas?
Choosing a wedding anniversary gift that wows
your husband or wife can rate high on your anxiety list; your
anniversary is an occasion where the thought counts even more than
the gift. The idea that your loving spouse should "know what I want"
can lead to disappointed expectations, as men and women tend to have
radically different ideas about what "romantic" means. Mind reading
is an art, not a science; so make it easy for your husband or wife
to choose a
wedding anniversary gift. Drop easy-to-figure-out hints or talk about how you would
love to celebrate your anniversary.
You don't always have the money or the time
to plan an extravagant wedding anniversary celebration, and truly,
the amount of money spent isn't going to be what makes your husband
or wife feel cherished. Life is busier than ever for most couples
and it's easy to fall into a routine that deadens your marriage.
Making time to celebrate your love gets lost in the shuffle. Your
anniversary is the perfect occasion to break out of your rut. What
will touch your husband or wife's heart, what's been missing in your
relationship that you want to enjoy again? Answer this question and
you'll be on the right path to finding wedding anniversary gifts that
have the magic "wow" factor.
Spice up your anniversary gift
Traditional anniversary gifts of flowers,
chocolate or jewelry can be made special by the way you present
them. Personalize a flower bouquet or a box of chocolates with a
love letter, note or a short poem. "Roses are red, violets are blue,
we've been married for xx years, and my love for
you is still true." "Chocolates are yummy and sweet, but you are
always my number one treat."
Take a romantic song lyric and personalize it
by changing a few words or a line or two. Doesn't have
to be fancy, just heartfelt.
Place a jewelry gift in a special keepsake
box and also enclose a love note. If you're dining out at your
favorite restaurant, have the gift delivered with dessert.
Buy a heart-shaped serving tray to present it. Or custom engrave a
bracelet with a romantic message.
A romantic evening "home alone" can jumpstart
your romance again. Create a fun theme for your evening and
buy costumes to match it. Order in a dinner so you only
have to heat and serve.
Indulge yourselves with a romantic and sexy
getaway. If you have children, maybe a relative or trusted friends
can take them for one night so you can enjoy a private celebration.
Get a suite and decorate it beforehand. Set up candles, strew the
bed with flower petals, sexy lingerie and fun toys.
Put on your favorite music and leisurely give each other a massage
to get into the mood.
Personalized gifts are very appreciated,
especially when they include words of love or a happy photo of you
together. Create a "love" gift basket. Include items such photos,
love coupons, a framed love letter, a small box of chocolates,
massage oils, a few
fresh flowers, aromatic candles, bottle of wine or small romantic trinkets with
special meanings to your marriage.
Show how much you appreciate your husband or wife and plan your
anniversary celebration around something that they always wanted
to do but haven't done yet.
A great wedding anniversary gift expresses what romance uniquely
means to your marriage. Carefully listen for your spouse's hints
But the best anniversary gift is to give your husband or
wife what they truly want: to know that you cherish your love
and marriage, and always will.
