Anniversary Wedding Gift Guide: What You Should Buy

Shopping for an anniversary is not something that you should take lightly. It’s important to celebrate the couple, whether they are family, friends, or even co-workers.

Taking advantage of this wedding gift guide can help you to figure out something fun and affordable to buy for the happy couple.

Celebrating the First Anniversary…and Every Other Year

As you explore a wedding anniversary gift guide, you have to consider what year is being celebrated.

The first year can be the most widely celebrated. After all, the couple made it through the first year. And how you celebrate can often set the tone for all future anniversaries.

It is always a good idea to focus on a gift that is both personal and meaningful. If you were invited to their wedding, you can also look at something that was representative of their wedding day.

Home & Décor is often the best category to shop from as it allows you to recognize both members of the couple. If you steer toward one or the other, the gift can be a bit one-sided.

Some one-year anniversary gifts you may want to consider include:

  • Clocks
  • Candles
  • Picture frames
  • Fun dish towels for the kitchen

Every other anniversary can be a fun representation of who the couple is. Make sure that you let their personality shine within the gift that you give them.

There are also a few milestone anniversaries that deserve a bit more thought:

  • 5-Year (Wood)
  • 10-Year (Tin or Aluminum)
  • 25-Year (Silver)
  • 50-Year (Gold)

Wedding gift ideas don’t have to be complicated or expensive. Give from the heart and the recipients should love that you’ve even remembered to celebrate their special day.

Wedding Gift Ideas You Can Personalize

Wedding gifts can be personalized so that what you give one couple is different than what you’d give another couple. It will show that you’ve put some thought into the gift. And it will ensure that the couple loves your gift that much more.

While you can always choose to have items personalized with their first and last names or their monogram, you can also personalize them based on what you choose.

We have a few ideas to help you along the way.

Create a Gift Basket

If you can’t decide what to get, creating a gift basket is a great option. And everything that goes inside can be carefully personalized to suit the needs and wants of the couple.

A kitchen-themed gift basket can include towels, spatulas, and even a recipe book.

A bath-themed basket can include bath bombs and shower gels.

Have fun with what you put in the basket!

Buy His & Hers Items

His and hers items allow you to stray away from household items and give a gift to the couple as individuals.

Choose an Item Representative of Personality

Be sure to think about the personality of the couple. Are they funny? Sarcastic? Southern? Do they love to cook or fish or spend time outdoors? Once you answer these questions, it will be easier for you to find an anniversary gift that represents who they are. It will allow them to celebrate their shared interests with the gift that you give them.

Consider Colors

Every couple has colors that they love. It could be the colors from the wedding, the colors that are seen throughout their home, or even the colors of their favorite sports team. As you choose items, be sure that you add that personalized touch by making sure that the colors they love are found within everything, whether it’s home décor or apparel.
