Granted, it's us ladies who are really, really into the whole romantic gifts gig, but guys like to receive those gifts too. And if they aren't accompanied by the sickeningly mushy red velvet hearts and 'I love pooh bear' kind of t-shirts, then they really have nothing much to complain about.
So the key word here is to stay miles away from the mush and get in some love instead. That's why we are dedicated solely to that purpose―Romantic anniversary ideas for him. So if you're in need of some, then get going through this list and by the end of it, surely you'll have the perfect gift for him.
Romantic Anniversary Ideas
Gifting something romantic to a guy, you might think, is not an easy task to set forth on, but that's really not true. Just remember that men are simple at heart, so you do something that has a personal touch to it, or a special meaning, and they'll love it. No matter what.
We won't ask which wedding anniversary, nor the amount of time you have spent together before that, rather, we'll directly get to the ideas. But that's definitely an idea that you could look into―something special relating to the time you've been married. Many couples like to go in for anniversary gifts by the number of years that they've been married.
Whisk Him Away
Always busy in the office, is he? Get him out! Now! How? A little bit of smarts and he'll be out of there. Maybe you know someone in his office and can ask them to arrange for a leave without him finding out? Or you could always make a frantic call and ask him to come home immediately 'cause you're sick or something? That is up to you.
This is a slice out of those old English novels and one of the most perfect first anniversary gifts. Get 2 cycles on hire―if you don't already own them―and cycle away to the countryside. The pleasant breeze, the lush vegetation in the fields, cows lazing in the meadows, a lake to swim... what more would you want?
Spontaneous Day Out
It's your first anniversary and the pressure to make it all special is driving you nuts? Just forget all that. Don't plan anything. Tell him to take an off from work and just spend the day doing whatever comes to your mind. You'll be surprised at the things you'll end up doing.
Street shopping, catching kiddie movies, attending a crafts workshop, sitting across each other and reading at a cafe, watching a romantic mushy flick on TV, visiting old friends, driving to that special bakery all the way to the next town for that special croissant... the list could go on. Make your own list.
Get in a day of adventure sports! You might think there's nothing remotely close to a romantic outing in this, but surprisingly, there is.
So you see? Romantic anniversary ideas needn't really be that difficult to generate. Just think about what he likes and what you both like doing together and you'll have a perfect gift ready for him! But if inspiration fails to dawn, you could use one of these ideas. Have a memorable anniversary.
