What to Gift a Wife for an Anniversary?
“What you choose to give your wife as a gift for an anniversary can depend on what anniversary it is,” explains Zoe Burke, wedding expert and Editor of Hitched.
“Each anniversary usually has a theme, such as paper for your first, or cotton for your second.” Browse our anniversary by year guide to inspire you.
What is the Best Gift for a Wife?
“This is really going to depend on your wife,” explains Zoe. “However, there’s one fool-proof tip to nailing the best gift for your wife!
“Make sure you listen to her and take note of what she likes! If you pay attention to the things she admires and talks about, you’re sure to find the best gift for your wife. But if all else fails, ask her to give you some ideas of what she likes and go from there.”
What is a Push Gift for a Wife?
“A push gift for a wife (or partner!) is a gift you give to your wife after they have given birth,” says Zoe. “It’s recognition for the effort and hardship she has gone through, growing, carrying, and ultimately pushing out a baby!
“If you are looking for a push gift for a wife, go as high end as you can afford as she deserves a very special gift after all that. My partner gave me a Chupi necklace with our child’s initial on it as a gift after she was born, and I wear it every single day.”
