7 Quick Tips on choosing a unique marriage anniversary gift for your husband
Whether this is your first time, tenth, twentieth, or just an anniversary occasion and you need a few tips on choosing a gift for your husband. We are here to help with the thought process. I remember my first anniversary as I married my spouse very quickly. From the very day we met, we practically moved in together the very next day, inseparable. 12 months later to the day we married, and 30 days later, pregnant.
Finding love is rare, but it’s real. So can you imagine choosing a gift for your husband on your first anniversary and how hard it can be to find a gift that represents your intense emotions of love for him? On my first anniversary I remember about a month before the date. I asked my husband random questions like, “If you had a million dollars, what would you buy?” And he told me, “I’d buy my parents way out of debt.” And the idea came up of “what if I get his parents on a membership plan with a credit repair company?” Nah. I don’t have a million dollars right now. Moving on, but I would eventually.
I moved on to what I did know. I knew my husband loved golfing, so fortunately his birthday was before our anniversary. I got him a brand new golf set, that I knew he always wanted but couldn’t afford. The look on his face made me melt and I just knew, I was gonna have to out do myself for our anniversary. Here we are with Tips on choosing a gift for your husband:
Tips on Choosing A gift for your Husband
Don’t reinvent your man. What I mean is, if he loves the good old Chuck Taylor shoes, black shirt under and white shirt over combo, and a pair of khakis, let him live. If your looking to make him the next Christian Grey from 50 Shades of Grey. Then that is how to choose the quickest way to lose your man. However, a nice suit for going out somewhere nice is a great idea for an occasional event. He’ll love that you’ve given him an option to choose from.
Pay attention to the things he says. Have you noticed those moments he’s playing his XBOX One/PS3 and he screams out, “Damn controller is always breaking… Stupid headset POS, I can never hear through these!” Ting Ting! Gift ideas everyone. We know that this is something that he can easily and quickly go out to buy, but don’t you think he would have done so already? Save him some time and thought, buy him something better and unique to elevate his interest experiences.
Go that extra mile on this gift and think outside the box! Playing it safe isn’t always a great experience to see on the love of your life’s face. Although nobody knows your husband like you do, unless he’s truly into the goofy mugs that say dirty meme’s. It’s one of the oldest basic gifts to give to your loved one. Buy him something that he will talk about to his friends, and family. No wait, not talk, BRAG about to his friends and family. Something that can relate to him, something in his interests. A new gadget to make his life easier, an accessory for his vehicle, an item that can elevate his confidence.

In an event that your man is the type that says “Well babe, I don’t want anything for our anniversary.” Half of that may be true, but the other half I’m sure secretly is only saying that because he can’t wait to see what your going to get him. Wouldn’t you? In this event, I would definitely get him something to elevate whatever he’s doing now. If his career is in business or something of that nature, get him a shaving kit that’s engraved. Even a watch, that has both your pictures in it. Something that when he glances at it, it motivates and drives him to keep his eye on the prize.

Another thing to think about is the good old fashioned DIY gifts. There are tons and tons of videos available on your facebook feed list, a DIY hack video list on Youtube, or even a book at the craft store or online. A perfect item for him could be a storybook of how you first met or your first date. You could include snapshots of photo’s, text messages, the logo of the restaurant you went to, a quote he may have said that was cheesy but you both remembered, even a snippet of the movie you may have seen together. Providing him with a gift of your version of how you pictured him the first time you met is bound to surprise him. A gift like this is something you can’t easily purchase because they are YOUR MEMORIES together.
A childhood memory. As time goes on with yourself and your partner. You develop a relationship that becomes naturally comfortable. You begin to tell each other both the good sides and bad sides. Including childhood memories, has he mentioned the fun games he used to love playing? The old school Nintendo games, Sonic, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Super Mario Cart, Doom? The Bop It gadgets, Pogs, Bean Bags, that were popular back in 2000’s? Take something sweet from his innocent days, and reignite his memory into something that you can both enjoy. Some of the old Mario games are now available through Wii. And in some cases, we have offers available online still yet of others still selling these games and gaming consoles.
Last but not least, another idea to get the ball rolling on you selecting a gift for him. Travel with him! If it’s a drive or a flight away, take him to a favorite spot in your state, or also back to his hometown. You may also think about taking him somewhere weather permitting for you to set up camp together. Run away from work, cellphones, and responsibilities. Give each other both genuinely needed time together to talk instead of sitting in front of Netflix and Hulu. Engage in conversation. Set up some index cards with hot topics of questions you would have never thought to ask him. Explore each other’s minds together in a location you’ll be be unbothered. This may be just the exploration you need to reconnect again if time has permitted and separated you both. Life happens over the years and always strengthens marriages. If you are both still close to each other’s hearts, then exploring the outdoors and new scenery is just another memory for your memory box of marriage. Love and marriage is all about the choices you make together as a unit. Stand as one!
