Four years ago today, I walked down the aisle of Sacred Heart Church to marry my best friend. It was a day filled with so much love, surrounded by our family and friends, and I still replay parts of it in my mind, especially on our anniversary.
How do you celebrate your anniversary? An even better question:
What should you get your spouse for an anniversary gift?
An anniversary gift should carry the sentiment felt on your wedding day and serve as a reminder of your love for one another. No pressure, right? Not to worry! This post is filled with inspiration for creative, personalized gifts to give your spouse this year!
1. A Customized Wall-Hanging
A wall-hanging featuring the lyrics to your first dance song or your wedding vows makes for an incredibly heartfelt gift that will take your spouse back to your wedding day. It may even prompt a sweet dance in the kitchen to relive your first dance!
2. Update your home decor!
Depending how long you have been married, your home decor may be in need of an update. Organic decor, such as natural wood paired with simple greenery, is very trendy this year. Why not print a photo of you and your spouse on wood along with your favorite quote to describe your marriage? This gift would make a great statement piece to place on your end table to replace the outdated ceramic figurines.
3. Commission a painting of your wedding flowers!
You spent so many hours planning each detail of your wedding, so why not turn one of the most significant details, your wedding flowers, into a signature gift? I absolutely love water coloring, and I would be thrilled to paint your wedding flowers as a special gift for your spouse.
4. Create a customized blanket or pillow!
Printing your favorite photo(s), quote, or significant phrases related to your relationship or family makes for a fun, lighthearted present that is sure to lead to more cuddle time on the couch watching your favorite movies!
5. A Statement Card
Some couples prefer to keep anniversaries simple. Purchasing a card that makes a statement can be just as meaningful as an expensive gift! Contact me to order a custom card that is sure to put a smile on your spouse's face.
6. A Handmade Sign
A handmade sign can make a super cool personalized gift! The possibilities are endless and can match any style, whether it's for a man cave, a statement piece in your bedroom, or anything in between! Pictured is a sign that I made for my best friend's wedding. It was such a fun project made almost entirely from reclaimed materials! Order one today! I would love to turn your idea into reality!
