  • Anniversary gift ideas

    My husband and I will be celebrating our anniversary in 10 days and I'm unsure of what to get him do you have any ideas?

  • How many years?

    And do you expect he will get you a gift?

    Comment


    • How many years? Also, do you have a budget range? Are you looking to buy him something nice or do something special.

      • It depends largely on him. What does he like? What would make him feel special and loved? What would mean something to him?

        • Congratulations!

          I give my man things he likes. Books are his favorite gifts. Do you think yours would like a book?

          You could also give a spicy gift, like something you'd wear... for him...

          If you're talking something expensive, a night at a fancy hotel, for the two of you to celebrate in kind.

          If spicy isn't OK, you could give him a good watch, or something hi-tech.

          Happy anniversary!

          • I'm answering all your points in one post. I'll be out 9th anniversary (happiest 9 years of my life), yes I do expect him to give me a gift. I'm looking to buy him a gift and we are going out to dinner that night. Since we're comfortable financially so I have more disposable income to spend so I guess my budget is £100-300, my husband likes video games, sports particularly Football (Soccer) he supports Manchester United and Rugby (he supports London Irish), he loves hiking and camping.

            I was thinking of making him a home made card of some sort that might make him feel special.

            • You could give him an accessory for gaming. There are special keyboards, there are also accessories that look like a steering wheel for racing games, some with pedals. Game controllers are nice toys for people who like gaming. You could also buy him some new games.

              You could also give him something like miracast/chromecast/eazecast, or one that works only with your TV. He'd be able to play games from his phone, tablet, or computer, on the telly, without cables. Fast memory cards...

              Perhaps it doesn't sound romantic, but if it is what he likes...

              About the soccer connection, some kit from his favorite team, but he probably already has that. Or a season ticket.

              Or go with the spicy ideas. Since you're dining out, after dinner, there could be a hotel night as a surprise, or something a little different at home.

              • How about tickets to his favorite team. But not just any tickets. An away game so it involves travelling there and staying at a hotel. You can get matching T-shirts for the team so you can wear together while at the game.

                If you really want to go all out, invite a few of his friends and see if you can make it a group getaway. Watching games are always better with friends and a little road trip will also be fun.

                • My wife got me an ipad for our last anniversary. I know it's not extremely creative, but it's actually made my work and ministry easier. The weight of my bags has decreased and I have been able to cut out a lot of books. It would have been hard for her to get me anything much better.

                  While I'm working and presenting to clients, I'm thinking about her and how much easier her gift made things for me. Can you get him a really nice tool or gear for work? It makes a man feel good. Maybe he can even brag to his workmates about how thoughtful his wife is while he's using it.

                    Great idea and if you want to personalize it, get a case and have it embossed or have it engraved.

                      Nice. Unlike my thoughtful mate, I'm crude and insensitive and got her nothing for our anniversary. I was about to get her a watch and then found out she wanted a specific one of those fit things. I'm ready to get her something nice now, but she just seems to have everything. Getting her something with her initials on in would be nice.

                      • Stillness, it doesn't have to be a physical gift. I am very particular about personal stuff like clothes and jewelry. I would prefer my husband not buy those things. To me, a mini vacation, a party with MY friends (not his family), or scheduling me a spa appointment while he cleans the house would be more appreciated. The best card he ever gave me and I actually remember, is one he made on the computer with a funny personal joke on it. Hallmark cards are soooo boring, even the funny ones.

                        I've done things like laying out a picnic in front of the fireplace or making heart shaped cookies or making his favorite food for dinner. It doesn't have to be an expensive gift to be good.

                          Why not a couples massage at the spa. They can be very relaxing for the both of you and then you could carry it through to dinner and an evening out.
                          That which we forget may as well never really happened.

                          • Everybody seems to love massages. Am I the only one that doesn't want strangers rubbing all over me and my wife's bodies?

                              I think I'll buy him a Manchester United shirt (his fav football/soccer team) with his name on it since his current one is getting old and looks a little small on him now. I'll also get a PS4 game dunno which one as of yet and I'll buy a ticket for a Man United game, aren't I such a generous wife lol hopefully I get something good.

                              I'm not sure whether I should buy another Man United shirt that has a star player's name on it like Rooney, Van Persie or the new players they bought in like Angel Di Maria and Falcao. I just about know these player's names because I watch Football with hubby.
