It is no secret that anniversary gifts have always been dreaded – from the responsibility of remembering the date, to picking out the right gift…what should be a special day often quickly becomes a source of anxiety. But stress no more, because it doesn’t have to be!
My first piece of advice is to forget about the traditional milestone anniversary gifts. While they are good for guidelines, unless you are the overly creative type you are going to have a near impossible task of determining the perfect paper, tin, wood or other material inspired gift.
Instead, the easiest thing to do is to go classic. All women love jewelry, flowers, and romantic date nights. As Marilyn Monroe said, “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” and you can’t go wrong taking her advice, so here are a few dazzling ideas she will always love:
Celebrating your first year of marriage is almost as exciting as celebrating your 10th. You have adjusted to married life after the honeymoon and you have learned a whole lot about your partner, so you want to celebrate this exciting and important first year of your life together as a married couple. Diamond studs are a great option. They are classic and beautiful and can be worn every day.
After 5 years of marriage you certainly have something to celebrate, so you want to commemorate this exciting milestone with a gift that shows her how much she means to you. A diamond pendant necklace will make any woman feel loved.
Celebrating 10 years of marriage is a big deal – you have spent an entire decade together and while there may have been ups and downs, you still love her as much as the day you married her. A diamond band to add to her engagement ring and wedding band is a great gift to commemorate this amazing milestone.
Whether you are celebrating your 1st or 50th year of marriage, the most important thing to remember is that it is the thought that counts. Think about her and what fits her style and personality and she will be sure to love it.
