Anniversary Gifts For Her: The Ultimate Guide

Whether you’ve been together for a year or fifty, shopping for your s/o is never easy, let alone if you’re on the hunt for anniversary gifts for her that are equal parts touching and thoughtful (without crossing the line over to cheesy.)

Who wants to be the recipient of another cliché gift basket? - or worse, something that elicits the polite-but-transparent, completely lukewarm “...thanks, honey😬 " No pressure.

But have no fear! Communicating love and appreciation is kind of our specialty, so we did the thinking for you. Behold: the Love Lingual ultimate guide to the very best anniversary gifts for her, including everything from the usual suspects to some unexpected delights.

(And since you’re probably doing some last-minute scrambling, yes - most of these gift ideas do offer express shipping!)

The Cutest Customizable Anniversary Gifts For Her

For the softies and sentimentalists.

1. A star map of your anniversary date

For a touching memento of your wedding day or first date that’ll actually look great on your wall, a custom star map is the way to go. Personalize your map with the time and location of your wedding or first date, plus add a custom message. She’ll probably shed a tear when she opens this one - in a good way.

      2. Your love story

      Take “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways” to another level by listing all the reasons you love your s/o in your personalized love story. Love Books Online makes it super easy to design your book cover to cover, including adorable custom illustrations of you and your lady.

      3. Custom framed song lyrics

      We’re obsessed with this thoughtful and unique framed word art. Choose the lyrics to your wedding song (or whatever “your” song is) and you’re all set for a gift that she’ll actually cherish forever. You can even customize the foil and frame color, so you can be sure it’ll be a piece that’ll look great in your home.

        4. Personalized 3D lamp art

        This one takes the cake for uniqueness: a 3D photo lamp modelled after your cutest pic as a couple. We know she’ll love having a cherished memory of yours as a beautiful work of line art, and it’s the perfect addition to her desk or mantle.

          Unforgettable Experiential Anniversary Gifts For Her

          For the adventurers and those who treasure experiences over material things. 

          5. A Masterclass membership

          If your partner is the curious or studious type, there’s nothing like the gift of lifelong learning - and there’s no way she won’t appreciate an annual Masterclass membership. With one membership purchase, she’ll have access to 90+ instructors (plus, new classes get added monthly), from Gordan Ramsey to Annie Leibovitz, and everyone in between.

             6. Love Lingual - Couples Level 1 

            For a truly intimate, memorable anniversary date night, there’s a reason couples are talking about Love Lingual games. It’s a game centered around relationships that goes way beyond table topics and sparks the perfect climate for reconnecting as a couple, sharing old memories, and laughing the night away. Recommend pairings include takeout, your favorite drinks, and definitely dessert. You’ll thank us later😉

            7. A last-minute hotel stay

            We can’t think of anything more romantic than a surprise getaway - can you? And bonus: you can plan to go all out with a trip to her dream destination, or make it happen at the last minute with a staycation in your city and cash in on savings with services like Hotel Tonight.

            8. An at-home massage

            Treat your special someone to some decadent and relaxing self-care with an at-home massage service, and she’s sure to be thankful. You can even join her for a couples’ massage and make a day of it with a celebratory brunch at home for a cozy anniversary to remember. 

              The Glitziest Anniversary Gifts For Her

              No gift guide would be complete without the finer things she’ll cherish forever.

              9. Lab-grown diamond jewelry

              While the gift of wearable sparkle is nothing new, we love this modern, eco-conscious take on the classic gift. Whether it’s a necklace, ring, bracelet, or earrings, your partner will definitely cherish her unique piece for years.

                10. Millennial-chic, budget-friendly jewelry

                  For timeless everyday jewelry, it’s no wonder we’re in love with Mejuri (as is most of the internet) - no one does the essentials in 14k yellow gold better. Plus, their direct-to-consumer business model skips the traditional markups, so you know you’re getting a great deal.

                  11. Unique vintage jewelry

                    We think nothing says “extra special” like a pre-loved, vintage find that’s bound to stay in your lady’s collection forever. Not only is it a sustainable choice, but it’s one that comes with a history - and services like 100 Ways make it easy to shop by design period or gemstone.

                      Can’t-Go-Wrong, Classic Anniversary Gifts For Her 

                      Un-messupable, timeless tokens of your love and appreciation.

                      12. A bottle of her favorite vino

                      You truly can’t go wrong with a beautiful bottle of your s/o’s favorite sippable. If you’re opting for wine, you can choose something meant to be drunk young, or if you want to go the extra mile, you can choose a vintage from the year you were married. Order ahead online, or go for a rush delivery service.

                      13. Treats that go above and beyond

                            An edible gift doesn’t have to be a cop-out if done correctly: choose something extra special and charmingly wrapped, and you have yourself a drool-worthy anniversary token. We love the unique and luxurious gift boxes from Charbonnel & Walker for chocolate lovers.

                              14. Her favorite fragrance

                                It’s a classic for a reason: fragrance is something she’ll use often (or if nothing else, it’s something that’ll look great on her vanity). Play it safe by gifting her a restock of her signature scent, or take a risk with a new scent you think she’ll love - we’re fans of BYREDO’s creative, luxe fragrances. She’ll appreciate it either way.

                                15. A beautiful floral arrangement

                                If all else fails and you’re empty-handed at the bottom of ninth inning, or you want an extra addition to your anniversary gifts for her (highly recommended!) - go tried and true. Stop by your local florist to create an arrangement that’ll take her breath away. Thankfully, with online delivery services like Urban Stems, you don’t even have to leave your desk to make it happen.
