Why Fall Anniversary Gifts? Because it is the time to celebrate! Each passing year gives us a chance to reflect on the past year and take stock of how life has progressed. Commemorating an anniversary is about celebrating and renewing the sacred bond between you and your loved one. It is about celebrating the years that you have been together, and giving thanks every day for the years that have passed.
So, what should you look for in your anniversary gifts? First, you want to be sure to get something that speaks to your significant other. This does not have to be a huge gift, just something that will say, “I love you.” When I was married, I gave my husband a small wooden carving of our tree that has hung up in our home ever since.
Secondly, when choosing an anniversary present to keep in mind what the person is passionate about. Do they love to cook? If so, give them a gorgeous cookbook that they can show off to friends and family. Every cook is worth their weight in gold!
Thirdly, why not choose something that they are passionate about but don’t necessarily use every day? For example, one of my friends loves poetry, but doesn’t really read books. Why not get her a subscription to a poetry magazine or give her some of her favorite poems as a coffee table decoration?
Fourthly, why not pick out an anniversary plant that will be a beautiful year after year? I love to plant lilies in our garden; year after year. Our purple pitcher plant takes over the family room for a few hours on Christmas night, and the perennial flower bed blooms for Easter. The year after we plant them both these flowers bloom profusely. I love my plants and they bring joy to my life.
Fifthly, why not get them some time to relax? It seems that adults do more relaxing than children. Why not spend the afternoon at a spa getting a massage, or a manicure? This will relax them both physically and mentally. After a long hard day there is nothing better than coming home and closing your eyes and listening to soft music.
Sixthly, why not get them a nice potted plant to take home year after year? One special plant will become a signature decorative piece in your home. If you don’t have a garden you can grow your own herbs and vegetables and use them throughout your year. My mother loves cooking and hosting dinner parties so she loves having fresh herbs ready to use.
Finally, why not buy them an interesting gift card to a local shop to buy the things they love most. Why not give them a membership to a local boutique? They might just use it a couple times this year to accentuate their home with their favorite pieces. There are many ideas to help you put together a memorable evening to celebrate your loved ones’ 60th anniversary. Make it a special time by using these hints and tips for making this the perfect anniversary gift.
