10 Things to Remember When Buying a Gift for For an Anniversary

1. The date

The most critical aspect of celebrating an anniversary is actually remembering what day it’s on. You don’t want to be behind!

Make sure you have the exact date marked on your calendar so it doesn’t sneak up on you.

2. The relationship

Are you dating? Married? Living together? Living apart? The definition of your relationship will help you in deciding what sort of item to give your significant other.

If you’re dating, it’s a good idea to keep the gifts focused on the person—clothing, shoes, books, etc. If you’re living together, household items can be great too.

3. How long you have been together

It makes a big difference whether you’ve been dating a few months or married for twenty years.

The less time you’ve been together, the less expensive and extravagant your gift should be. You don’t want to put unnecessary pressure on things.

4. What you like to do together

Are you theatre-goers? Hikers? Gamers? Pick an activity that you both enjoy and treat them to a day of it. Time together is the best gift of all.

5. Fond memories

No matter how long you’ve been together, you’re bound to have more than a few smiley moments in your memory.

Bring back old times by reliving a first date or making something clever out of one of the sweetest things they have ever said to you.

6. Inside jokes

You know you have them. Inside jokes are a great way to celebrate your relationship. Try finding an item that serves as a punchline too.

7. Plans for the future

If you’re in the midst of wedding planning or about to send the kids off to college, your future can provide plenty of fodder for gift-giving.

Buy them something small and special for the wedding day, or plan an empty-nester getaway.

8. Matching is cute—promise

No matter what people say about it being cheesy, having matching shirts, towels, or coffee mugs is a fun way to show the world that you’re together, and you’re proud of it. Never hesitate to brag on your significant other.

9. Who you want to keep in mind

Is it something that the kids will want to be involved with? Is it something that their parents wouldn’t approve of?

As much as this day is about the two of you, it’s also about the people you love. Try not to ruffle any feathers if your gift is something that goes out in the open.

10. You don’t have to like it

Even though your anniversary is a shared celebration, what you are celebrating is the other person and the joy that they bring to your life.

You can honor them by buying something that they love but you aren’t necessarily a fan of.

The Perfect Anniversary Gifts Ideas

Do you have a special anniversary coming up? There is no occasion more important than this for finding the perfect item for that special someone.

The right gift can bring the biggest smile to your partner’s face and make them feel truly loved and appreciated.

Anniversaries are unique occasions, as it is all about you and your partner. This is a day that is just for the two of you.

You may also be looking to find a present for a few special people in your life, instead of for your own significant other. They may have just gotten engaged or are newlyweds. They may be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.

No matter the length of the relationship, or the personalities of the people you are sure to find the perfect gift for them. If you are their grandchild, child, parents, friends, family, or acquaintances, we can help.

How Much Should You Spend on an Anniversary Gift?

While celebrating an anniversary is a great moment, it also comes with a bit of anxiety when trying to figure out the perfect gift!

For most couples, there is a certain expectation that you will exchange presents for your anniversary. But - how much are you expected to spend? What if your partner spends a lot more than you?

Keep in mind that if you are worried about how much to spend, your partner probably is as well!

Here are our top tips and guidelines that can make it easier to decide on the right budget.

1. Are you married or just dating?

The first thing to consider when determining your budget is if you are married or dating, you should feel less pressure when it comes to buying something.

Typically, the budget is smaller when it comes to dating anniversaries compared to wedding anniversaries. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t get a little something, but rather, that there isn’t a standard expectation to get an extravagant item.

If you are married, things get more serious, but not to worry! These next tips are for you.

2. Is it a milestone anniversary?

While each anniversary is a great accomplishment, certain anniversaries are typically more celebrated. Think of your first anniversary, 5 years, 10 years, and so on.

If you feel like you want to splurge, it makes sense to do it on one of the more major milestone years.

For the in-between years, you should feel far less pressure when it comes to how much to spend.

Your spouse is likely feeling the same way, so you shouldn’t worry that you will end up with an item that costs a lot less.

Focus your attention on saving up for the big milestones, and in-between feel free to spend less and simply enjoy your time together!

3. Increase your budget over time

While you may splurge a bit for your first anniversary, then consider dialing things back for your second anniversary and then slowly building up your budget over time. It makes sense, doesn’t it?

The more time you spend together, the more you spend on anniversary presents! This is a great rule of thumb to follow and will make things a lot easier on you when you start shopping around for something.

As for how much to increase in the budget each year, don’t feel like you have to spend a lot more each year. After all, that will add up quickly and you don’t want to feel pressured to spend thousands simply because you’ve been married for a while! Slowly increase your budget and you will be good to go.

4. Discuss and set a budget

If you still find yourself worried about what the right budget is, why not just discuss things with your spouse and set a budget?

This can take the pressure off of both of you, and still allows you to find a gift and surprise your spouse, but without fear of not spending enough or spending too much.

There is nothing wrong with discussing a budget, so feel free to do so if you are someone that wants to have a more concrete number in mind.

5. Always spend within your means

Finally, the most important thing to always keep in mind when spending money on a gift is to only spend what you can afford.

Everyone’s finances are different, so to follow a certain strict rule of a certain dollar amount to spend is not realistic.

What is cheap for someone may be very expensive for someone else- and that is okay! Spend what you can afford, and never feel pressured to do otherwise.
