The best anniversary gifts take particular consideration, especially if your special date falls around the holiday season. No matter the milestone, from newlyweds celebrating their first year of marriage to those honoring 25+ years together, it's an opportunity to show extra thoughtfulness and care. "When shopping for an anniversary gift, it should feel heartfelt and reflective of something special or sentimental with your partner," Kate Bellman, women's managing fashion editor at Nordstrom, tells Bazaar. "Often, it's nice to give a gift that's a reminder of a memorable event or a shared experience."
Whether you're shopping for an S.O. or buying for a happy couple, personalized presents with an engraving or embroidered detail like a wedding date, vow, or monogram, always show thoughtfulness. "Initials or a monogram speak to both the individual and couple's joint identity," Bellman says. Jewelry, watches, linen sets, or decorative accessories are some of the best gifts for wives (and honestly, they're also great gifts for men, too).
Perhaps you're seeking something related to a memorable occasion, like the way the couple met or an unforgettable trip. A culinary-inspired gift, a decadent meal out, a bottle of wine, or a hosting gift can transport giftees to that special moment in their lives, whether they're celebrating intimately one-on-one or together with family and friends. Similarly, a gift for a traveler, like luggage or a gift card for a future getaway, can help them create a new lasting memory. Any couple will appreciate a romantic weekend away at a resort for R&R.
If you're all about tradition, anniversary gifts like paper for one year, wood for five, and crystal for 15 might inspire a stylish anniversary gift like stationery, a beautiful piece of furniture, or a set of elegant glasses. And finally, luxurious gifts of the beauty, fashion, or pampering variety will forever be idyllic when celebrating an anniversary. What better than a spa day, lavish skincare, an extraordinary piece of jewelry, or a handbag to say, I love you? Ahead, scroll on for 66 of the best anniversary gifts for celebrating happy couples.
