Fun Anniversary Gift Ideas for Women

If you stick to the traditional gifts consider a creative presentation. This bracelet available here.

Ok, men. Here’s the secret to great gift giving: surprise her. Add an element of the unexpected to the gift, it’s selection, or it’s presentation. Some examples:

An unexpected gift
Give her your time. On a weekend afternoon in the backyard surprise her with a smoothie (homemade or purchased), a bouquet of flowers, and a manicure by you! Purchase nail polish you think she would like and have a go at it Picasso! When my husband did this for me, I was SHOCKED! I felt so pampered and special and I really appreciated him doing something so unexpected.

A great selection
Finding the perfect gift doesn’t always mean an endless day of shopping. It involves thoughtfulness. A great idea we came across recently was a gift an hour starting at the hour you were married. You can use a combination of items you create and purchase, for example, frame a photo that she loves and wrap it, write her a short letter of 5 things you love about her, buy a cute pair of earrings, print out a love quote or cute cartoon that reminds you of her, lip gloss, find the lyrics of your first dance song, etc. and wrap each separately for her to open throughout the day. She will love it!

A creative presentation
If you don’t have a lot of time to make something or go shopping, and you want to keep things more traditional, consider how you present your gift. If you take her out for a traditional anniversary dinner arrange for a friend to meet you there secretly with flowers you picked out, a gift, and a cake you had written a special message on. Excuse yourself to the restroom or parking lot, etc. to get these items from him. Give the cake and wrapped gift to your waiter to bring out once you finish dinner. A tiny bit of planning is all it takes for a pleasant anniversary surprise!

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment. This doesn’t mean you have to do away with the DJ--an experienced MC can be a great asset to assist with your event schedule,
