You have exactly 364 days to come up with the best wedding anniversary present that would knock your partner’s socks off. But aside from that teacup set they liked once while shopping at Target, there’s nothing else you can think of that would appeal to them.
You can’t possibly give them a generic present like clothes, chocolate or *gasp* a photo frame. You need a gift that would make your spouse feel grateful to have you as their partner.
And here, we’re presenting you with some tips that can help you accomplish that!
Tips on Being the Best Gift Giver
– Plan in Advance
Never leave your gift buying to the last minute. Go to different websites that offer gift items such as Impression Personalized among others and sign up for their newsletter. This way, you’ll get monthly emails that’ll list all the possible gifts you could give. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, at least you have a narrowed out field for your search.
– Pay Attention
Stop thinking about what you think they’ll like and listen to what they say, what they do. Their interests and hobbies are your best indicator as to what they’ll like as their gift.
For example, if they like a glass of wine at the end of the day, or to celebrate, you could buy them a personalized wine gifts like a personalized wood box with wine tools. Or you could get them some customized wine glasses with a special message engraved on them.
– See What Other People Like
Shop for a gift on the ‘Popular Items’ page. You don’t need to buy anything, but if you’re still clueless about the type of gift you should buy, browsing through the popular items will at least give you some inspiration.
– Remind Yourself Who the Gift is for
Just because you don’t like something, doesn’t mean the other person would share your opinion. Always focus on what your recipient wants and needs. If you don’t like drinking martinis but your partner does, get them something that’ll enhance the experience, like a personalized martini glass. Focus on their wishes.
– Ask Them
Don’t let your pride or ego get the better of you. Chances are; if you ask them for their choice, they’ll already have the list ready. However, be tactful when you do ask. Think about the different gifts you want for them then send them a quick text, asking for their opinion. Don’t just ask them what they want. That’s just lazy gift giving.
It’s the Thought that Counts!
Your spouse will cherish the sentiment behind that gift, rather than the price tag. So buy them a gift that means something to you both and don’t skimp out on the oodles of love you’ll need to shower your spouse with.
It’s your wedding anniversary! It’s the best day to be doing so!
