This is especially true if you are not really close friends with one of the partner. Another thing that makes anniversary gift giving difficult is the fact that there are limited items that one can give. Notice how most people would give the same gifts during weddings and anniversaries? This is the reason why! If you are not keen in paying for this kind of service, make sure then that the service is free before you purchase the items. Mugs Giving matching mugs is perfect for couples who enjoy taking their breakfast together. This is also a great gift idea for people who are coffee addicts. If they are going to use the mugs at the office or at work, ask them to exchange mugs and take the one with the initials of the partner. Sometimes, it is not really the gift that is important but the feeling or memories that it conveys. But how do you make an ordinary gift romantic? Put a special dedication Gifts will not mean anything without a proper dedication. Without words that convey what you feel a gift will remain a thing that you just bought just for the sake of buying. One idea is to give a voucher of free laundry for a week to the couple or offer to take care of the kids while they go on a second honeymoon trip. You can also give them a blank voucher. This way, they will be able to choose what they can ask of you. You can even offer to become their slave for the day. This was arranged more than 3 months in advance and the only thing to iron out were the other small details to make this as memorable as possible. The plan started at 6 am of that day. There was going to be breakfast in bed with Mary's favorite rose on a vase with the favorite dish of sausage and eggs. Other ideas for a gift is to keep tickets of a movie that you have seen together or receipt from a restaurant where you first had your date. Frame them or put them in a photo album. You can reminisce together while you eat your dinner and celebrate your first year anniversary. Look to the wants Your partner is sure to want something.
