We know what you’re thinking – where do you start looking for gifts that are even remotely worthy of the queen of your heart? We’ve done the hard work for you, so all you need to do is browse our list below for ideas.
A Bouquet Of Flowers
We don’t know a woman whose heart doesn’t melt at the sight of fresh flowers. Accompany another gift with a posy, bouquet, or floral arrangement from a top florist to put the wow-factor into her anniversary day. Most florists offer an array of blooms and filler from which to choose, and they will gladly offer advice.
To make your choice that much easier, some wedding anniversaries have particular flowers assigned to them. For example, give carnations on your first anniversary, daisies on your fifth wedding anniversary, roses on your 15th anniversary, and lilies on your 30th anniversary.
A Luxurious Spa Pampering Session
She undoubtedly does a great deal for you, so give her the chance to be pampered from head to toe. Make her day with the gift of a luxurious spa package. One of our favourites allows her to relax and recharge with various treatments and facilities before enjoying lunch at the Soholistic Spa at the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho. She’ll emerge feeling and looking fabulous.
A Crystal Champagne Set
Crystal is the traditional gift for the 15th wedding anniversary, but there’s no reason you can’t choose it as an anniversary gift for her in any other year. There are many options when it comes to crystal, such as jewellery, décor, and tableware, and drinks sets. If she enjoys champagne, spoil her with a crystal bucket and four flutes from Royal Doulton. If she prefers wine, she’s sure to love a decanter and a set of glasses.
A Set Of Luxury Fragrances
If she doesn’t have a signature fragrance, preferring instead to choose her scent to match her mood or the occasion or season, surprise her with a set of luxury fragrances. You’ll need to gather them together yourself, but online shopping makes that easy.
If you really want to spoil her, choose the Fragrance Foundation Awards’ 5 finalist luxury women’s fragrances. They include Tom Ford’s Soleil Neige, Frederic Malle’s Rose & Cuir, Gucci’s A Song For The Rose, Jo Malone’s Violet & Amber, and Yves Saint Laurent’s Libre.
Champagne And Macarons For Two
In the mood for a sweet treat on your wedding anniversary?
Take her for an afternoon of quality time and champagne and macarons at Covent Garden’s Ladurée. It’s gentle, it’s delightful, it’s delicious, and it’s only the best for the best, of course. The iconic French company was founded in 1862, and it sells more than 15,000 macarons per day. This anniversary gift lets you take a sweet trip down memory lane together as you both find out why the confections are so popular.
Gold, Diamonds, and Gems
Jewellery makes for gorgeous anniversary gifts for her, regardless of how long you’ve been married. If you enjoy keeping traditions alive, choose a ring, bracelet, necklace, or earrings that incorporate the stone assigned to the occasion.
If not, choose the piece that best expresses her character and highlights her natural beauty. If you really want to let her know that you think she’s out-of-this-world, choose this gold Pippa Small pendant set with a piece of an actual meteorite. The London-based jeweller also does amazing work with an array of precious stones.
Paper Floristry Masterclass
Paper is the traditional first wedding anniversary gift, but for the creative wife, a paper floristry masterclass would be a welcome gift in any year. She’ll have a day of learning new skills and having fun making high quality paper flowers at the Pom Pom Factory. Plus, it puts an entirely different spin on the flowers-for-your-anniversary thing. The experience is for two, so if you don’t want to tag along, she can take her bestie.
A Limited Edition Watch
A limited-edition designer watch is a fitting anniversary gift idea for a woman who is one-of-a-kind. There’s no shortage of top brands that create limited edition timepieces, but one of our favourites released in 2020 has to be Chanel’s J12.20. Production was limited to 2020 pieces, so it’s one for her to treasure.
Whenever she wears it, she’ll be reminded that you appreciate the time you’ve spent together, you enjoy the time you spend together, and you’re looking forward to the future you’ll spend together. Watches traditionally are given on the 15th anniversary.
Leather Accessory-Making Experience
Leather is the traditional gift for the third wedding anniversary, but if she loves leather, and you aren’t someone to be limited by tradition, an accessory-making workshop could be perfect. As far as anniversary gifts go, it doesn’t only put uniquely beautiful accessories into her hands, it lets her make them. She can let her creative spirit loose in the company of designer Rosanna Clare, who will guide her work.
Seriously Chic Tableware
She deserves to be surrounded by all things bright and beautiful, especially when at the dinner table. Silverware as an anniversary gift for her can help make that possible. It’s the modern gift for the fifth anniversary, but who’s counting when you’re in love?
If she loves contemporary design, she’ll love the 84-piece Vision set designed by Charles Phillip Simpson for Carrs.
Candle Making Class
If she enjoys getting crafty, let her know she lights up your life by giving her a spot in a candle making class for your anniversary. She can create a unique fragrance before blending it into a candle under the watchful eye of Lucy Heale. Whenever she burns it, she’ll be enveloped by her hand-blended scent as she’s reminded of the fire of your love.
Antiques Tour With Afternoon Tea
Spending time with her and doing something she loves is one of the best anniversary gifts for her. If she loves antiques, join her or let her take a friend on a private tour with BBC’s expert presenter, Mark Hill. After the tour, she can enjoy an afternoon tea inspired by Wedgwood in the very location in which the quintessential British tradition began. It’ll be a wedding anniversary present she’ll remember forever.
Gorgeous Leather Pumps
Third anniversary or not, nothing says, “I love you,” like gorgeous designer leather pumps. Every step she takes when she struts her stuff will echo the beating of lovers’ hearts. Her face is sure to light up when she opens the gift box to find heels by Prada, Manolo Blahnik, or Oscar de la Renta.
Dinner With A View
End your anniversary day with a dreamy dinner that offers one of the best views in London. Whisk her up to the 32nd floor of the Shard, where you can rekindle your romance over the signature tasting menu at Rainer Becker’s Oblix West. In between remembering years past and making plans for the future, she’ll be delighted to see the contemporary dishes prepared in the theatrical kitchen.
Tea Tasting Masterclass
If tea is her beverage of choice, treat her by choosing a tea tasting masterclass as an anniversary gift for her. If you don’t join her, she can take a friend along to Teanamu Chaya Tea House for a deliciously informative experience. In the comfortable surrounds of the venue, they’ll learn about the popular beverage while enjoying a flight of teas complemented with delicious patisserie. As far as delightfully different wedding anniversary gifts go, this could be it.
If the woman who captured your heart is a fashionista, give her an anniversary gift that adds to her look. Consider choosing an accessory that will work with a variety of outfits, because the more she wears it, the more she’ll be reminded of you. We recommend giving her a pair of top-brand sunglasses, and if you’re looking for suggestions, we don’t mind sharing that we think these oversized cat’s eyes from Saint Laurent are adorable.
A Stargazing Break
She puts the stars in your eyes, so let your anniversary gift for her be the opportunity to see the stars like never before. Take her away for a getaway at Glenapp Castle in Ayrshire, Scotland. She’s sure to agree that sharing top-quality accommodation, gourmet meals, and the chance to do some stargazing with you is a perfectly romantic way to celebrate a relationship like yours.
Visit the Titanic
If she has an adventurous spirit yet swooned at the dramatic love story of Jack and Rose in James Cameron’s Titanic, make a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity your gift to her. Give her the chance to visit the wreck of the ill-fated liner in a high-tech submersible. The gift also offers her the chance to contribute to the preservation of history by helping a team of scientists collect data. It will be a wedding anniversary she’ll never forget.
Every anniversary is special, and your wife deserves to be spoilt! Pick a gift from our list of anniversary gifts for her or use it as inspiration to splash out and remind her of your special day.
