Congratulations on your upcoming wedding anniversary! The years seem to go by so fast these days, but it’s so important that we take some time to celebrate those special occasions and keep the romance alive. However, if your husband is like most men, you’ll find that it is virtually impossible to come up with an idea for an anniversary gift without it involving beer or video games. Below, we’ve put together alternative ideas that will put a smile on his face…
Though jewelry probably isn’t at the top of your list when looking for a male anniversary gift, you’d be surprised at how many men now wear rings and necklaces. Not only are they very fashionable, but they allow them to wear something that reminds them of you all day long, so whether they’re at work, at the gym or drinking with friends, they’ll always have a piece of you with them. For those with Irish heritage and those who are religious, Celtic cross jewelry for men is an option to consider. Found at monastic sites throughout Ireland, the cross dates back to the ninth century and represents Ireland’s important legacy from the Middle Ages. Not only does the cross demonstrate Ireland’s proud heritage of craftsmanship, but faith, too.
Date night voucher
Whether you’re on a budget or you’ve got a partner who is impossible to please, you could create a date night voucher, offering your partner a delicious homecooked meal followed by a romantic evening in front of the television. In today’s fast-paced world, it’s becoming harder to spend quality time together, and so an evening of forced romance will bring you together and allow you to get to know each other all over again. Reminisce about times gone by, enjoy chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne, and see where the night takes you.
If your husband wears the same thing day in, day out, use your anniversary as an excuse to update his wardrobe with a couple of new shirts and pairs of jeans. You could go to the mall together and treat each other to a whole new outfit, or surprise him with a few pieces in his size and favorite color. The best part is that you get to choose things you know he’ll look good in, and it’ll be hard for him to say he’s not grateful as it’s an anniversary present!
All men love watches, so consider upgrading his current timepiece to something he has had his eye on. Sure, some watches will set you back thousands of dollars, but there are some manufacturers which offer quality watches without the premium price tag. Shop brands such as C3, Seiko, and Citizen over $10,000+ brands Rolex, Audemars Piguet, and Tag Heuer.
There you have it – some great men’s anniversary gifts that you can consider without having to break the bank. Whatever you decide to get up to in celebration of your special day, we hope that it is filled with good memories, laughter, and of course a glass or two of wine!
