What Are Good Anniversary Gifts for Him?

A good anniversary gift for your husband or boyfriend is one that takes into account his personality type and interests - that way you know he will actually use whatever you end up buying. As it is your anniversary, you may wish to opt for a sentimental and romantic present such a memory box, or something practical might be more suited. 

If he's the type of person who seemingly has it all, consider giving him a fun experience instead. You'll find plenty of gift experiences for couples here that you can take part in together.

"Remember, a thoughtful anniversary gift for your significant other should show them just how much you appreciate them and care," says Zoe Burke, Editor of Hitched, "Whether that is buying them something that they need, an item they've always wanted, or a present they wouldn't typically treat themselves to." 

What Are Good 1 Year Anniversary Gifts for Him?

The traditional first wedding anniversary gift is one made of paper which opens the floor to tonnes of great ideas - from romantic love letters to notebooks and prints. As it is a special milestone, we recommend choosing a gift that will act as a keepsake for years to come. If you would rather something more contemporary, the modern nod to your first year of marriage is with a clock. 

What Are Good 2 Year Anniversary Gifts for Him?

If you've been married for two years and want to celebrate with a traditional second wedding anniversary gift, you'll be looking for cotton present ideas. Think clothing and home-wear, or you could venture outside the box with cotton scented items such as a candle or fragrance.
