Whether you’re married or have been in a relationship for a few years, you should treat your man to an amazing anniversary gift. No need to fret. We’ve run through 9 gifts that he’ll love. Why don’t you read ahead?
Show Him How Well You Know Him
Your anniversary is very important to both of you. This is especially true if you’ve been through some hard times. Although people think that men aren’t the most sentimental, this is far from the truth. By doing something that shows him how much you know him, he’ll feel more appreciated.
This can be anything, but something related to one of your dates is great. If he told you how much he wanted something on a date, getting it for your anniversary is a good move.
Make Some Memories
For your big day, you can treat him to a good time. At the end of the day, memories are worth more than anything. But make sure you take him somewhere he’s fond of. It would be a shame if he doesn’t like the activities planned.
Make note of what his interests are. You probably know them like the back of your hand. If his favourite band is coming to town, taking him to see them would be great. Not only will he enjoy the night, but you two would make memories you’ll always cherish.
Is He Always Late?
He’s a busy guy. To be on top of his schedule, he’ll need a watch to keep him in check. Thankfully for you, there is a myriad of timepieces available. You’ll always find something that he’ll like. It’s your anniversary, so don’t be afraid to splurge on a piece. He’ll love having something premium on his wrist – he’ll brag about it to his friends.
Watches also do outfits up. Guys aren’t big on accessorizing, so you’ll be doing him a favour.
As there are many watches to choose from, how do you know what he’ll like? Look at lines like the orient bambino. They’re diverse and look like a million bucks.
You know what they say, food is the way to a man’s heart. Cooking him a normal meal wouldn’t be much of a gift. Expect to go all out. You’ll need to create a feast worthy of a king. Although you know what his favourite foods are, he may have some childhood favourites that you’re not aware of. Don’t be afraid to speak to his family.
Creating a lavish meal is the cheapest option out of everything we’ve discussed. What’s best about it is, it can be very intimate.
Comparing to preparing an anniversary feast, getting crafty is much cheaper. You can create something that would remind him of the time you’ve shared. This could be anything, but it’d be a great idea if you create a collage of a couple of memories. You can get it framed so that he can place it in his office.
If you’re an artistic person, painting a memory would be even better.
Of course, you could just have a picture of him and you framed. This is simple and elegant.
Go on Vacation
Everyone loves travelling. Work could be stressful, so a vacation would give you time to unravel. When surprising him with a vacation, you can’t go wrong with anything. He’ll love whichever place you choose as traveling is an exciting experience. However, to make things extra special for him, think of a location he’s never been to before.
It doesn’t have to be a lavish trip. You can travel in your own country. You don’t have to stay in a lavish hotel either – you can caravan the journey. Doing things lowkey not only saves cash but makes the experience even more intimate.
How’s His Wardrobe?
Although it’s a cliché, men don’t dress that well. Their sense of style is not always perfect. A great anniversary gift would be doing something that elevates his style. The best thing for this would be a suit.
All men look great in them. What’s more, suits are useful as you can never have enough. Of course, be careful with where you buy them from. Some brands can cost thousands of dollars.
When shopping, ensure you have his exact measurements. There’s nothing worse than a suit that doesn’t fit well. If he has one that fits him perfectly, bring it with you. Also, make sure that the store allows for alterations. If the suit doesn’t fit, getting it adjusted won’t be an issue. While you are shopping around, consider getting bamboo socks for your man that will match his suit.
A Furry Friend
Your relationship means the world to you. If you’ve been together for a while, you’re ready to take things to the next level. No, we’re not talking about getting married. You should surprise your man with a pet. Whether it’s a kitten or a puppy, raising a little ball of fur would help you prepare for the future better.
Is He A Guy’s Guy?
If he’s a guy’s guy, he probably spends a lot of time outdoors. Getting him something that would improve his time outdoors would be a good move. Remember how we said you could get him a watch? You could get one that’s perfect for the wilderness. Not only will it make him look better, but he’ll have features like compasses, water resistance and sun-tracking to make his time outside easier.
Whether he fishes or hunts, having new boots would be great too. Like suits, you can never have enough of them.
In conclusion, your anniversary is special to both of you. Treating your man to an amazing day is a must. Surely, he’s planning something big too. In terms of what you can treat him with, showing him how well you know him is great. Other than this, getting crafty and gifting him something that would remind him of the love you share is also good.
Of course, you can splurge and get him a watch. He’ll look dapper, or you could get him a quality suit. Depending on the type of person he is, equipment for time outdoors is perfect too.
