Whether you’re looking for gifts that zone in on how they love to spend their spare time; something to help them relax, rewind and reset; anniversary gifts by year; luxurious gifts; something for your parents or other favourite couples, our list of carefully curated and perfectly thoughtful gift ideas are certain to fit the bill and your budget.
What makes a good anniversary gift?
In our experience, something that’s personal or practical is a good place to start. Think about their likes and hobbies: are they into gadgets? Do they love a bath? Or perhaps they’re a fragrance fanatic. Ultimately, this will help steer you in the right direction.
Experience days can be a great way to create even more happy memories. How about a gin tasting session for those looking for a fun night out or a helicopter ride for those who love an adrenaline rush – something out of the ordinary that takes them out of their comfort zone.
Whatever you choose, the best gifts show that you’ve really thought about your other half or the happy couple no matter how much you can afford to spend.
Scroll on for a wealth of anniversary gifting inspo and Team Boots-approved present ideas that they’ll love long after their special day is over.
