Wedding anniversary gift ideas for couple
In this category, you are either getting a gift for your parents’ or in-laws’ wedding anniversary or you are a guest for a couple that renew their wedding vow in a private ceremony after so many years of being together. The anniversary gift idea for couples is the gift that must be savoured by both of them.
Having being together for so long, watching their children growing up and most even have grandchildren to baby-sit and play with, they have little time alone for themselves. Sometimes, they have being together for so long that they find it is unnecessary to be romantic anymore as they are not those young and passionate couples. It is time to prove them wrong on this perception! One of the best gifts is to get a hotel room in a nice hotel for the two of them to have an intimate time together. Prior to that, it is best to acknowledge the hotel staff that the purpose of this room booking is for the couple’s anniversary and to celebrate the so many years of being together.
Request the hotel management to set up some décor in the room with a special touch, something they usually do for the newlyweds’ honeymoons such as rose petals on the nice and comfortable bed, scented candles, essential or aromatherapy oil sets for the soothing and warm bath together, champagne and a basket of tropical fruits to enjoy later in the evening. Give them a photo of the couple so that they can personalize the room by putting it in a picture frame to make the room a more personal touch rather than just an ordinary hotel room. This gift is a perfect getaway for the couple as they get to have a day off from household chores and all they do on that special day is to be pampered, relaxed and the best is to spend some quality time with the love one. Remember to plan in advance and tell the couple in advance as well so that they can spare the day off to ‘claim’ the gift. There are many great deals on hotel room especially if you have booked in advance to take the opportunity of the early birds cheaper deal or choose the date that is in low peak season so that you will not hurt your pockets. It is unnecessary to choose the precise date for the anniversary gift-giving, as long as it falls within the same week, you are good to give.
If this gift is beyond your budget, you can consider making reservations or present gift certificates for the couple at a local spa so that they can enjoy a true relaxation massage and at the same time spending some good time together. Perhaps giving them a romantic dinner in a restaurant is a good idea, a restaurant that either serves French food, Italian food, Spanish food, or Indian food and the list goes on. Make sure to choose something that both of them love to eat as you do not want to end up that only 1 person is enjoying the food. Besides this, there are other few options that you can give such as a gift basket. For example, if it is the 35th anniversary, you might consider giving something related to the time they got married (eg.1970s) to help them remember and cherish the moment that they might have forgotten. This could include candies or food, coin set or CDs featuring the 1970s music.
Also, you can give other personalized gifts such as embroidery towel sets, bed linens, pillow case or cushion case with their initials or personal message on them. You can also give a personal engraved message on a photo frame so that they can display it with the couple’s picture. This is something they use everyday and it is great to let them know that you are happy for them.
For the couples that have being together for so many years and do not have any thoughts to renew their vows, then plan one for them! Surprise them with a simple ceremony in the backyard, get good caterer for the food buffet, cake, champagne, decorations for the aisle, balloons, confetti’s and invite all families and close friends. The cost will of course very much depend on how lavish or grand you want the ceremony to be, but getting in close friends and families to help plan and work it out will greatly reduce the costs. After all, everyone just wants to have a good time and happy for the love commitment of the well-respected couple.
