Whether you are on your 1st wedding anniversary or have been married for the past 5 decades, deciding what gift to give your loved one can be a daunting task. Especially in marriages that have lasted for a couple of years, the gift you pick should be thoughtful and meaningful.
The common gift most people offer is jewelry. This is a great gift because it is diverse. There are numerous options for you to choose from. This does not mean that you break an arm and a leg for gold or diamond earrings. It can be a simple gift that commemorates the special day you two decided to spend the rest of your lives together.
The main thing is to think outside the box. Think of something so creative that even after 50 years of marriage, your better-half will still be marveled by your simple but meaningful gestures.
Taking an example of a 50th anniversary; I have noticed that most people, who are celebrating their 5th decade together, opt to have a small gathering where they get to renew their marriage vows. The most thoughtful and toe-curling gift the husband can give the wife in this particular scenario is the Miss to Mrs box. This is a gift will bring back vivid memories of the 1st time they said ‘I do’. It will make her feel like a girl again. Since it is a series of gifts that help you in wedding planning, they will also come in handy when she will be planning for the vow renewal ceremony.
SIMPLE GESTURES COUNT
At times, it’s the little things that matter and have the greatest impacts. Marriage vows state ‘For richer for poorer, in sickness and I health, for better for worse.’ All marriages have seasons of great breakthrough and other times, you can barely get your head above water. Getting a gift that reminds your spouse of the challenges you two faced and how you came out stronger is a good place to start.
You could also bring out the goofy side in you and buy your spouse a nice piece of jewelry and inscribe a special message or joke that only the two of you understand. This is a funny bt undeniable show of affection they simply cannot resist.
MAKE WISHES COME TRUE
If you are a good listener and listen closely enough, you will notice a few hints here and there from your significant other on things they covet. They may make vague suggestions or plainly blurt it out.
Be a thoughtful spouse and make their wishes come through this wedding anniversary.
If the hints are not clear enough, you can try reflecting on your better half’s likes and dislikes. This will give you a rough idea of what your spouse would love for their anniversary gift.
All in all, getting an anniversary gift for your spouse should not be stressful. It should just be a gesture that portrays your un-ending love. An activity full of fun, bliss and excitement.
