As far as anniversaries go, the gifts and celebrations vary as much as the couples do. Some may like to keep it lowkey with dinner and a quiet night in with each other. Other couples may want to do it big with a lavish trip or party. And, of course, some are in the middle. Although there are many different ways to acknowledge a special anniversary, one thing that stays consistent is the desire to make your significant other feel special and loved no matter how many years you’ve been together.
But what if this year you’re stumped on how to do that?
Don’t fret. While you know them better than we do, we’ve done the research and gathered up the 43 best anniversary gifts that your partner is sure to love, whatever your budget is. Take it from us; these are sure to make them feel special.
1. If your love was written in the stars: A Night Sky print
A celestial footprint of a significant event in your relationship, like the day you met, your first date, or the day you were married, this print zeroes in on how the starry sky looked on that day, time, and location. The results are breathtaking. The finished product is printed on museum-grade matte paper with archival inks for the most professional finish. Get it framed for a moment that’ll last a lifetime.
2. For the one whose love is eternal: These roses that last all year long
The typical problem with beautiful flowers is that they often don’t last very long. That is, until Venus et Fleur flowers came along. These so-called “Eternity” roses last a full year (or more) with no wilting or special treatment on your part, except to keep them in the box they came in. They’ve got a cult following, too, with celebs like Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid raving about their beauty and quality. Your loved one will adore being able to enjoy the flowers all throughout the year. Pick from a large array of color options for the roses themselves, as well as the display they arrive in.
3. For the one who prefers breakfast over dinner: Harry & David brunch box
If you and your significant other have major heart eyes for each other and waffles, this brunch box has everything you need for the perfect anniversary meal. We highly recommend Harry & David for special occasion gourmet foods that’ll make a great impression. Included in this particular box is an assortment of waffles (four, to be exact), coffee, tea, jam, syrup, and loaf cakes. Pair with a couple of mimosas and you’ve got the ideal morning!
4. For the one who’s old school: This customized flipbook
Celebrating one year? Go all-in with the paper theme with this amazingly creative flipbook of your first kiss as husband and wife. Choose 5-15 seconds of the video you’d like used, pick the cover text, and this seller will create this memorable keepsake that your partner is sure to adore! The flipbook also comes in a box and drawstring pouch so it’s ready to be given upon delivery.
5. For the one who needs more artwork: A custom portrait
If there's a bare wall in your home that could use an eye-catching painting, why not commission an artist to paint a portrait of the both of you together? This doesn't have to be a drawn-out process either, since in our review of Paint Your Life, we found the ordering process, turnaround time, and final product to be impressive. You can have a portrait commissioned in a variety of styles and mediums, including oils, pastels, and watercolors, so the possibilities are endless.
6. For the one who has yet to frame their wedding photos: A framed wedding portrait
Known for their stunning portraiture work, Minted has everything you need for a perfectly framed photo you’ll be thrilled to display. You’re able to choose your size, frame, borders, and matting for a finished product that looks just how you imagined it would. You can further customize by adding your names and wedding date to the bottom for a heartwarming added touch.
7. For the one who loves something that sparkles: Diamond jewelry
While jewelry is a quintessential anniversary gift, there’s a reason why! Take Vrai, for example. Their simply stunning diamond jewelry was designed to be eye-catching yet delicate. Plus, all of their diamonds are sustainably lab-grown. Both pieces I have received from them have been dazzling and are some of my favorite to wear. You can choose from a wide variety of pieces that your sweetheart will adore that aren’t limited to rings, like necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Oh, and did we mention that Leonardo DiCaprio is an investor? Another jewelry retailer we love is Mejuri. They sell classic, chic pieces that will never go out of style at multiple price points.

8. For the coffee-lover: The best espresso maker
Signs of everlasting love include lattes and cappuccinos made at home. With the Breville Barista Touch, you and your beau can whip up all kinds of gourmet espresso drinks with ease and without changing out of your pajamas. We love how simple it is to use with its intuitive touchscreen, plus how quick cleanup is. Small enough to sit on the counter without creating clutter but mighty enough to make a strong shot, you may never go out for coffee again.
9. For the ones celebrating six years: An iron wedding song plaque
Sleek and elegant, there’s no better gift for a sixth anniversary than this wedding song on iron. Have a special song or poem from your ceremony or reception? Add the lyrics or words, plus your names and wedding date, and they’ll be beautifully engraved on the size of your choice. There are also ready-to-hang options as well, so you can display the art right out of the box.
10. For the one who loves to reminisce: A fun memory game
If you’ve been together for many, many years, it might be difficult to recall certain moments from years ago. With the Rememory game, you’re given specific prompts that are designed to jog your memory, as well as your partner’s, so you can each relive events through each other’s eyes. Try one-on-one, or with family and friends for even more memories and recollections.
11. For the plant parent: Plants from The Sill

They’ll receive an easy-care plant in a ceramic pot each month along with detailed care instructions that we found quite helpful, especially for new plant parents. After receiving a few months’ worth of plants, all the flourishing greenery will be a beautiful reminder of your love through the years: ever growing, always there.
12. For the one who likes to try new things: A wine subscription
Do you wish restaurant-quality wine could be mailed to you on a monthly basis? Who doesn’t!

This handcrafted map turns any wall into a piece of art by attaching each piece with provided double-sided tape that’s safe to use on walls. Choose from four different sizes for the perfect fit for your home.
14. For the one who journals: A Montblanc pen
Known to be a world-class pen (and rather a status symbol, at that), a Montblanc pen is the perfect gift for your spouse who loves to write. Made from high-quality materials, Montblancs are unlike any other pen and have even found themselves in the hands of many influential people like Ernest Hemingway and Barack Obama.
15. For the one who’s tired of cooking: An Instant Pot Ultra
We know, we know: the Instant Pot is everywhere, but the hype is real! Take the stress out of figuring out meals for every day of the week and simplify life for you and your beau.

17. For the one who takes tons of photos: A digital picture frame
Make sharing and displaying photos easier with this digital frame that has built-in WiFi and a USB port so you can transfer your favorite photos from anywhere.

Take your chocolate adoration to the next level with this delectable treasure box that includes not only a plethora of chocolate, but also a bottle of wine to have with it.
