The Best Anniversary Gifts for Your Boyfriend
1. Kiko Multi Frame – from £39.95, Nkuku
Antique brass and different frame sizing means that all of the arty hanging work is done for you. Fill either the large or small option (or both) with meaningful photos, dried flowers, fabrics or another momento for a personal anniversary gift that will hit him right in the feels for years to come.
2. Personalised BBQ Multi-Tool – £24.99, Hitched Shop
From multi frames to a multi tool, this outdoor essential takes care of pretty much every BBQ need, from grilling to basting to opening the beer. The five-in-one gadget also features an extendable handle for precise flame cooking and it can be personalised with his initials and the date of your anniversary for a sentimental touch. We suggest a romantic evening by the fire with s’mores to start things off.
3. The Velvetiser – £99.95, Hotel Chocolat
Sure, it’s not cheap, but it will change his life (and possibly yours). The Velvetiser has acquired legendary status thanks to its ability to whip up silky, perfectly blended hot chocolate in under three minutes using grated chocolate whizzed with a milk of your choice, or water if he’s a real traditionalist.
4. Coffee Subscription – from £36, Kiss The Hippo
If your boyfriend is more of a coffee guy, a tailored subscription from this sustainable London coffee roaster is sure to tickle his fancy. Choose a bag of the specialist barista’s single origin coffee to drop every month, every week or every other week and he’ll thank you as he fills his pre-meeting cafetière for the foreseeable future.
5. Monday & Friday Socks – £18, Anthropologie
Perk up his mornings even more with these expressive weekday socks.
6. Personalised Embroidered Long Waffle Robe – £29.99, Hitched Shop
A cotton kimono embroidered with his initials makes for a timeless anniversary gift that looks far more expensive than it is.
7. Le Labo Baie 19 Shower Gel – £38, Harvey Nichols
Add some luxe suds to his morning shower. With a scent blended to evoke the smell of rain after a long dry spell (oh so satisfying), plus added vitamin E, aloe vera and olive leaf extract to leave skin soft, this shower gel will elevate bae’s bathroom shelf.
8. Spiced Honey Bath Syrup – £31.50, Crabtree & Evelyn
If he loves nothing more than drawing a bath at the end of a long day, this soothing syrup will make for a sweet, decadent soak. Manuka blossom, ginger and warming vanilla create a comforting scent while coconut oil and honey moisturise parched limbs.
9. Bee Block – £18, Anthropologie
Speaking of honey, this compact bee ‘hotel’ provides shelter for passing bees that need to rest their wings. If he’s passionate about conservation, this block is guaranteed to please.
10. Unkillable Set – £70, Patch Plants
If he’s less green-fingered but full of good intentions, this ‘unkillable’ plant collection will get his gardening ambitions off to a healthy start.
11. Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm – £21, Mr Porter
Whether he’s a gardener or not, chances are that his mitts could do with some moisture. This rich shea and coconut based balm delivers that in spades, plus the rosemary and mandarin fragrance is refreshingly peppy.
12. Simon Carter Darwin Penguin Cufflinks – £68, Liberty London
Who said that suit additions need to be serious? These mother of pearl and onyx penguins are playful and stylish, with tiny Swarovski crystal eyes adding even more decadence to the Darwin inspired design.
13. Canvas & Leather Weekend Carry-On Bag – £39.99, Hitched Shop
Roomy, lightweight, durable and compartmentalised for ultimate minibreak organisation, this cool carry-on can be embroidered with his initials in almost any colour for a tailored anniversary gift that won’t cause a mixup in the overhead lockers.
14. Sunday Cologne – £122 for 50ml, Byredo
On the subject of weekends, this crisp, citrus based cologne will wake him up on a Sunday morning, with relaxing lavender to ease the process.
15. Striped Long Sleeve T-Shirt – £39, Arket
A weekend wardrobe classic, this relaxed striped top will go with everything and is made with loose-fitting organic recycled cotton for both comfort and eco credentials.
16. Cast Iron Round Casserole in Frost Grey – £55, John Lewis & Partners
From a fashion classic to a foodie one, this cast iron casserole pot is a thoughtful anniversary present for cooks and will help him to lovingly serve up comforting dinners for decades.

A cheffy boyfriend will live in this olive and black checked cotton-linen blend apron. Give it in the hope of some delicious dishes coming your way ASAP.
18. Japanese Ramen Bowl Set – £45, Sous Chef
He’ll probably need to wear an apron if you’re gifting this – those noodles get pretty splashy. Two traditional ramen bowls are accompanied by two bamboo ramen ladles with a booklet detailing everything he could wish to know about the much-loved Japanese dish, with four ramen noodle recipes based on classic broths.
19. Personalised Stainless Steel Flip-Top Beer Growler – £29.99, Hitched Shop
This personalised flask keeps almost two litres of beer chilled on the go (or he could opt for water if he’s captain hydration). It’s just the thing for picnics, beer festivals or an afternoon together in the park.
20. Abeeko Smoke Decanter – £39.95, Nkuku
Smoky recycled glass creates a decanter that looks elegant no matter what tipple you fill it with. The perfect anniversary gift to jazz up his drinks cabinet (or encourage him to get one).
21. Drinks Rocks Whiskey Stones – £40, Goodhood
These sculptural whiskey stones will turn his dram into a work of art. The four soapstone and marble rocks keep their cool effectively and serve as brilliant party ice breakers.
22. Gua Sha Set – £75, Guy Morgan
More cool stones, this time for his mug. This skincare set combines a tension-melting jade gua sha tool with the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory Dagger Rose Face Oil to enhance both his facial massage experience and his skin barrier.
23. Bro Mask – £25 for 4, Mr Porter
If he’s a little more low maintenance, these hydrogel face masks can be worn while he goes about his business and will leave skin fresh.
24. Smoked Cork Memo Board – £26.95, Graham & Green
Made from sustainably produced cork that’s been smoked to create a marble effect, this cork board is a handy gift in itself but we recommend pinning photos, notes, plane tickets or any other significant momentos before giving it to your boyfriend. We’ll bet he’s never gotten emotional over a memo board before...
25. Wood and Faux Leather Keepsake Box – £19.99, Hitched Shop
Another place for him to keep his treasure, this initialled vegan leather trinket box looks as apt in the office as it would on his bedside table or in the bathroom. Fill it with a few of his favourite things before presenting him with it on your anniversary.
26. Abrams & Chronicle One Sketch a Day – £14.99, Anthropologie
A visual journal that’s perfect for arty amateurs or illustration pros alike. 200 gilt edged pages allow for 365+ sketches and you could leave your own to fill your anniversary date if you’re so inclined.
27. Map Your Ride Poster – from £40, The English Cyclist
If he has a favourite or especially memorable cycling, hiking or running route, map it out or visualise it by way of this personalised print. Include precise data, location, his name and any other details you fancy to make an anniversary gift that’s far more aesthetically pleasing than just looking at an app.
28. The Yoga Kit – £88, Lululemon
If he’s just getting the hang of his sun salutations, this pro yoga kit will take his practice to the next level. A 3mm reversible mat, yoga block and microfibre towel will cover the bases from vinyasa flow to sweaty sessions – you could even plan a surprise partner class for the day of your anniversary to really give this gift legs.
29. The Pub Package – from £22, Don’t Buy Her Flowers
From holding poses to clutching pints, this ‘pub at home’ box is the ultimate anniversary care package if you can’t get down to the local. Choose between beer and cider and include salty snacks, a book and even a COOK voucher to take care of dinner too.
30. Man’s Best Friend Hamper – £50, Harvey Nichols
A similar idea, minus the literature and with some meaty treats as well as cheesy nibbles, olives and spicy Japanese crackers.
31. The Halloumi Cookbook – £9.99, Oliver Bonas
If your boyfriend can’t get enough of the squeaky cheese, this is the cookbook for him. Take halloumi beyond anniversary brunch with a whopping 60 recipes based on the sensationally popular Cypriot cheese. We just really hope you like it too...
32. Tom Dixon Puck Set of Two Coupe Glasses – £70, Mr Porter
On the topic of anniversary brunch, why not toast each other with these smoky, sophisticated coupe glasses?
