20th Anniversary Gifts for Men

If you go with the concept of traditional anniversary gifts by year, then the chosen gift for this year is china. Gifting a special china piece provides for varied options to choose from. Here are some anniversary gift ideas that you can use.

A Trip for Two

How's that an exclusive gift for him? It isn't. So what. It's your anniversary as well! Enjoy a little. Plan a trip to ... China. And make it a great one.
If possible, surprise him with this twist to the traditional wedding anniversary gift (I mean, there is China involved, isn't there?) and just whisk him off for a week or so. What a romantic gift that would be. Of course if china is not in your budget, then a trip to any other place will be just as fun.

Gather Your Friends Around

Simple and sweet. Just call all your friends for a BBQ style dinner or a picnic. Include all those people who've known you for the past 20 years and before that. And those who've been with you since you became a couple.
Just let the evening roll with memories re-lived and experiences re-visited. It will definitely get you closer seeing how you've been through so much and continued to go on.

So the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Absolutely true. On this special day then, cook up 20 of his favorite dishes.
