Husband and wife coffee mugs
Customized couple mugs are a cutesy idea for an anniversary gift, especially for parents who can’t leave the house without their morning coffee. Asides from showing your parents you’re thinking of them on their special day, mugs with messages are a daily reminder of their love for each other. You can make the message as humorous as desired!
Personalized wall plaques
Create a special work of art for the special people in your life with a customized wall plaque. Asides from making a beautiful focal point, it’s a great way to combine memories in the shape of how many years they have been together, how many minutes they have spent with one and other, how many children they have, where they met when they married and even how many pets they have.
Husband and wife dressing gowns
Monogrammed dressing gowns make for a great wedding anniversary gift. It’s also a gift that is likely to be used time and time again. Whether you opt for something simple such as ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ or use the nicknames they have for one and other, this wedding anniversary gift is guaranteed to put you in your parent’s good books.
His and hers matching puzzle keyrings
Puzzle pieces that fit together not only make for a great anniversary gift, but they’re also a great option for those who often misplace their keys (or who are renowned for picking up their other half’s keys).
A chocolate hamper
If your parents have a sweet tooth, this hamper is a must! Even though it only encases a few ingredients, they’re extremely taste-tantalizing ingredients! From salted toffee truffles to chocolate covered strawberries and Belgian chocolates, this decadent selection is perfectly suited to for a couple wanting to celebrate!
Red wine gift basket
A gorgeous gift basket with a little bit of everything is a great anniversary gift to send to your parents! Inside you’ll find a bottle of French red wine, a box of indulgent salted toffee truffles and a beautiful red rose plant, encased in a pretty wicker gift basket, which can be reused once the contents have been demolished.
A helium balloon
A helium balloon that arrives hidden in a big box is a great surprise to send to your parents on their anniversary. You can embellish the balloon with a message of your choice, including everything from ‘congratulations mum and dad’ or ‘happy anniversary!’
A weekend getaway
If you really want to push the boat out, treat your parents to a weekend getaway on their anniversary! Whether you pick their favorite location or a surprise destination, this is the perfect gift to give your favorite people on their special day. From spa retreats to hiking adventures, to tropical vacations or adventure sports, pick a place that is tailored to your parent’s tastes. If it’s a big anniversary, you may wish to organize a holiday for the entire family and ensure you throw a celebration to remember!
A surprise party
Why not throw the happy couple a surprise soirée on their special day? You can either hire a venue or host it at your parent’s home. Invite family and friends, open a bottle of bubbles (or several) and decorate the house with balloons and banners. And of course, when you’re the one doing the organizing, you can be as lavish or as reserved as you wish!
