Our Favorite Anniversary Gifts For Couples article hero

With so many of us stuck at home, it can be hard to come up with new and exciting wedding anniversary gift ideas. After all, most of us spend the majority of our time living and working in close proximity to our spouse. While it may help support a greater overall closeness, it doesn’t help when you have to buy them a gift, and you want to get new and fresh ideas while still keeping it a surprise.

Many people stick to a traditional format for wedding anniversary presents and purchase a gift that corresponds with their anniversary year. In North America, traditional gifts for wedding anniversaries include paper or cotton on the 1st anniversary, tin or aluminum on the 10th, crystal on the 15th, and precious gemstone jewelry in later significant years. These traditions may be fun to practice, but many of us don’t use these delicate and expensive items on a daily basis, leaving them in a cabinet to gather dust.

New Ideas for Anniversary Gifts for Couples

Instead of sticking with tradition, modify it slightly to offer a fun spin on a classic present that will still be useful today. Here are some of our favorite ideas for your next anniversary gift.

Fashionable array of men's and women's clothing including sweaters, jeans, and accessories

1. Clothing

Clothing can fall under a few different traditional categories, and is a great way to offer your spouse a luxurious or indulgent piece that they may not have bought for themselves. To keep them warm and comfortable during remote work, a matching lounge set is a great idea. If they prefer being a bit more dressed up, a well-fitted collared shirt or a new pair of jeans may be more appreciated.

2. Housewares

Invest in the home you share by gifting beautiful and useful housewares for your next wedding anniversary. To make sure it stays in ‘gift’ territory, stay away from practical cleaning or kitchen items, as well as appliances. Instead, invest in some lovely new bedsheets, a nice serving platter, chic stemware, or even a potted plant.

3. Jewelry

Receiving a personalized piece of jewelry is a great way to commemorate a meaningful anniversary. This may be more challenging to do unless you know your spouse’s style well, but it can pay huge dividends when you get it right.

Instead of going to a mall retailer, make an effort to patronize a smaller independent jeweler in your neighborhood, who may be able to offer higher-quality items at a much more reasonable price point.

4. Personalized Anniversary Pictures

Personalized artwork or a framed photo is a great way to celebrate the history of your love story, and how much you’ve changed and grown as a couple over the years. You can opt for framed prints if that’s the style your spouse prefers, or get creative with a canvas, acrylic, or metal print.

These styles allow you to print your photo directly on to the medium, so you won’t have to deal with fragile glass frames. Buy one larger print, or pick out a few smaller photos to make a beautiful gallery wall.

Our experience with Canvas on Demand was wonderful. After ordering, we received two emails letting us know that our size choice was a bit too small for the photo and that a black border would be a better choice for the canvas piece. They then told us they would make these changes to make our canvas perfect at no extra cost to us! When we received the canvas, we both were so happy with the result. The staff truly was interested in providing the best possible product and they ensured that without additional costs or strings attached. We were truly impressed and would highly recommend the service to anyone.

This was a sepia tone photograph and I was concerned that the color/clarity would be compromised when it was transferred to canvas. I couldn't be more pleased with the canvas, it turned out perfect. The service and turnaround time were both excellent. I appreciate that the canvas size was adjusted, without any additional cost, for proper proportions.

Since 2003, Canvas On Demand has been crafting affordable, high quality, personalized home goods that celebrate life's moments, both big and small, through the permanence of print.
