Looking for an anniversary gift? Your wedding is meant to be one of the most special moments of your life, so it deserves to be commemorated every year with a meaningful and romantic gift. Whether you’re great at giving gifts or find it a bit of struggle, we’ve put together an Anniversary Gifts by Year: Traditional and Modern Anniversary Gifts post that goes into what each anniversary year is represented by and gives you ideas on what to buy for each year. If you need more specific guidance, we’ve put together the best romantic anniversary gifts for couples, from brands including Auree Jewellery, Papier, Hotel Chocolat and more.
To kick-off our gift list, we’re starting with jewellery, and you can never go wrong with jewellery! The Walton Three Colour Gold Russian Wedding Ring is a beautiful combination of white, rose and yellow gold. The three gold bands are intertwined and act as an ancient symbol of eternal. Russian Wedding Rings have many different meanings – including the Holy Trinity and the past, present, and future of a relationship – but the different coloured golds also represent love (rose gold), fidelity (yellow gold) and friendship (white gold). Each band can be engraved with initials, names, or dates to be made even more personal and you can add diamonds for some extra sparkle. If you’ve been together for a while, this ring can be an update to their original wedding ring or just a stylish romantic gift that they’ll cherish forever.
If you and your other half prefer to have a night in relaxing and enjoying each other’s company, go for a relaxing pamper gift set like the Couples Night In Gift Set from Notonthehighstreet. This handmade couple’s gift set is designed to help you relax and unwind with indulgent quality products. The gift set includes aromatherapy bath salts, room mist, scented candle, and chocolate, perfect to help you and your wife or husband wind down from a busy week.
A unique gift idea for those who love astrology, the Custom Star Map from Etsy will definitely win you some serious brownie points. A meaningful print for your home, this constellation map captures the night sky on whatever day is most special to you and your significant other, like when you met or when you got married. There are multiple colours and fonts to choose from, which makes this star print truly personal and thoughtful.
For something classic and a great addition to their everyday jewellery collection, choose the Ortigia Fuchsia Chalcedony Hoop Earrings. These striking hoops feature 18ct yellow gold vermeil and fuchsia chalcedony, giving a great pop of colour and a romantic glow that’s perfect for all year round. Hoops are extremely popular, big or small, plain or gemstone studded. If they’re a big jewellery fan, these hoops will complete any look and the vibrant pink gemstone is the colour of love, perfect for an anniversary gift!
Photo albums are extremely meaningful and acts as a trip down memory lane, displaying all your memories together. Whether it’s for a specific holiday you took, your wedding day or a timeline of your life together, the Brocade Bird Hardback Photo Book from Papier has plenty of space for whatever you want to use it for and comes in a stylish design. This gift is also customisable so you can choose a photo for the cover and personalise the layout and captions. Make updating the photos in the book a tradition, where you add more photos and memories to the album every year.
A bottle of fizz is always great for any special occasion and the Taittinger Brut NV Champagne & Glasses Gift Set is a stylish and sophisticated choice to celebrate your anniversary. With elegant light citrus and brioche notes, the three years of ageing in the Taittinger cellars adds more roundness and weight to the champagne. This gift also comes with two glasses that you can add to your glassware collection. If you’re planning a getaway, you can take this gift with you on a picnic or to a hotel trip and be able to drink it anywhere with the included glasses.
Chocolate is a powerful aphrodisiac so if you’re looking to boost the romance in your relationship, get her or him the Hotel Chocolat Large Chocolate Dipping Adventure. The chocolate dipping adventure is a fun lowkey activity to do together and of course, it’s delicious! This kit contains four white, milk, dark and caramel chocolate dipping pots and comes with additional sweet and savoury nibbles to dunk into the good stuff. The box also contains Brazil nuts, almond biscuits, gianduja balls, Florentines, marshmallows, and mini grissini for dipping. This is a great dessert gift for the two of you or to share at a dinner party.
The Montmartre Silver Watch with Almond & Powder Blue Leather Strap is a beautiful mix of Japanese engineering, Italian leather and French styling. The leather is handsewn two tone soft leather in almond and powder blue tones, which give it a chic and colourful twist. The strap is adjustable and if you buy all the leather colours from Auree Jewellery, you can switch up your watch style with whatever outfit you or your other half is wearing. Clocks and time both represent specific anniversary dates, so a watch makes for the perfect gift for the 1st and 15th wedding anniversaries.
If you and your significant other love to try new experiences and go on adventures, a Virgin Experience Days voucher is a great way to push you both out of your comfort zones and trying something different. With a range of activities to choose from, simply pick your location and browse all the options that Virgin Experience has to offer. Choose from simple things like dinner and a movie to more exciting daring activities like river cruises, hot air balloon rides and skydiving! This gift is an opportunity to challenge each other, experience something together and bond over a new fun memory.
