My wedding anniversary is 8/16! Why does that matter? Well, every woman feels loved once her man remembers their anniversary. Whether it’s their wedding or the day they became official, it is memorable for a woman. If you are about to celebrate your anniversary with your loved one, it is only natural that you will be wondering what you should buy as a present. But if you’re pressed for money and you can’t really afford to buy her a new set of pearls, what else should you give her? What are some great yet affordable anniversary gifts for women? How will you make her feel that you value your special day without spending a lot of money?
While there are still some people who stick to the norm of giving flowers, chocolates and a card, it is not as important as it once was. Many women actually find this concept old fashioned. At the same time, spending money on a dozen roses seems crazy—especially since they die out eventually. So it’s really best that you avoid giving these gifts to your loved one.
The best type of gift to give her is something new and creative. Even though some of these gifts do not cost a lot of money, you can see her beam at the effort you put into it. Often, women find these types of gifts better than receiving flowers, chocolates or candies. They would much rather receive a handwritten card from their man than a bunch of flowers. So if you’re looking for great gifts you can give the lucky woman, here are some options you should consider:
Massage – You can invite your loved one to get a massage with you. Since there are already a number of spas that offer discounts, you can easily find one without spending too much money on the service.
A Single Stemmed Rose – If you must give her a flower, opt for a single stemmed rose. This says a lot already. A bouquet is too expensive and traditional. Instead, you can give her a single long stemmed rose with a note attached to it.
Home Cooked Dinner – Especially if you don’t know how to cook, this is a great gift you can give to your wife! You can ask a close friend to teach you some good recipes that you can use. Add some candles and wine and you’ll be all set for the night! The effort of learning to cook is a huge turn on for women, mind you.
Glow in the Dark Message – Invest in some glow in the dark candles and pretend you completely forgot this special date. Make sure that you act like you really don’t know what the occasion is. The trick here, though, is to ensure that she does not see you writing the message. When she’s at work, you can write down a sweet and touching message on your ceiling just above your bed. After a long day at work, she’ll be happy to read the message you wrote for her—once the lights are out.
A Sweet Bath – If you have a bathtub at home, you can prepare the area by setting some candles to light the mood. Invite her to the tub and give her a massage. This will surely make her happy that you’re with her.
So you see, you don’t need to spend a lot of money for your anniversary. It’s really the thought that counts. Remembering this special day may be enough for your loving wife, girlfriend or partner. Just in case remembering is not enough though, these creative ideas should do the trick.
So, what kinds of things have you given to your partner on your anniversary? I would like to know.
