Gifts for wedding anniversary seem to be always the same things, picture frames, photo albums, appliances, glassware, chinaware, kitchen utensils, etc. Sometimes, the list of possible anniversary gift ideas is so short that couples even receive two or three of the same thing when they unwrap the gifts. Your gifts need not be like that!
One way to make your gifts unique without really veering so much away from the norm is to turn what is usual into something unusual with just a little bit of imagination… your imagination. Personalizing your gifts is not only easy but also fun to do. Besides, couples who will receive your gift will all the more appreciate the effort that you have out into the present for their anniversary. Here are some ideas that can get you started on the road to more personalized gifts.
A simple way to make your gifts uniquely your own is to put monogrammed initials on the gifts. For instance, if you are giving the couple towels or matching t-shirts for their anniversary, you can have them stitched with their names or initials. You can even out some personalized designs on the gifts. You don’t even have to stitch it yourself. There are craft stores that provide stitching services.
Another way that will make your gifts more personalized is to engrave the initials or names of the couple into their gifts. Great gift items that you can have engraved are metal canisters for the kitchen, jewelry boxes, pens and jewelry. Key chains can also be engraved as well as ceramic items such as mugs and plates. In fact, why not give them a whole set of chinaware with their initials engraved at the back? That will be a great personalized anniversary gift.
Make your own.
If you know how to knit or to cross stitch, you can also make your own gifts. One project that you can do is to make matching jackets for the couple or maybe a couple of scarves for the winter season. You can also turn their favorite photo into an image that you can cross stitch and then framed. This will be a wonderful addition to their bedroom or their sitting room. If you are into crafts, you can also make them a handmade photo album with papers that you have hand-made yourself. There are actually a lot of things that you can do, you just have to determine what you can do.
