A wedding anniversary is a momentous celebration of two people sharing their lives together. Whether it is the first anniversary or the 50th, many couples choose to mark the occasion in a special way by exchanging gifts. When choosing the perfect gift for a husband there are many routes you can take. Whether you go with a traditional gift, playful gift or something sentimental, with a little forethought you can find one for him that he will enjoy.
Always consider your husband's personality when deciding on a wedding-anniversary gift. The gift will be even more meaningful when he can tell you put some thought into it. If he enjoys sports, you can get him memorabilia from his favourite team. Outdoorsy types may enjoy something they can use on their excursions. Even if you go with a traditional gift or an accessory always look for something that matches his personality and taste.
Many wedding anniversaries have an associated theme for gifts. The first wedding anniversary has a modern tradition of giving a clock to celebrate the occasion, for instance, while the 10th is historically celebrated with tin or aluminium gifts. Almost every year has a traditional gift associated with it. Look for something that will still be meaningful to him when purchasing a traditional gift.
Some men enjoy dressing up or are required to do so by their job, and an accessory to go along with his outfits is a nice choice. If your husband's wardrobe warrants it a pair of cuff links makes a good gift. If he doesn't have a suitable outfit then he may enjoy a nice wristwatch. A wristwatch is a classy and trendy way for a man to accessorise his outfits, and if he enjoys dressing nicely he might enjoy a formal or semi-formal wristwatch to complete his look. Avoid purchasing actual jewellery for a man. Necklaces, rings and the like come across as kitschy on most men. Also avoid mundane accessories like belts and ties unless your husband has a special affection for these items, as they often come across as tacky.
A sentimental gift is always a good way to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Look for a way to commemorate your time together. If he has a desk job give him a meaningful picture with a nice frame he can display at work. If you have memorabilia from your relationship consider making him a scrapbook or photo album of your time together. A wedding-anniversary gift doesn't have to be expensive. Giving him a reminder of your life together will show him that the relationship is special to you, and that alone will mean a lot to him.
