This is a serious event in his life. He’s worked, planned, and gotten ready for this day for potential years. This calls for something for his business, something that he may one day pass down to his children when they inherit it. Custom frames for their first dollar, posh decorations for their office, or even a nice, strong bottle of top-shelf liquor with a custom label (that’s one they’ll probably bring home, but it’ll mean the world to them in their liquor cabinet).
To overcome the common problem people faced as to what to give one’s spouse each year, an American author by the name of Emily Post, who wrote on the topic of etiquette, was the first to recommend a list of anniversary gift themes which was published in 1922 in her book titled 'Etiquette’. In that book, she listed suggestions for the first anniversary, followed by the fifth anniversary, and then every five years or so up until the 25th, and concluded with the 50th wedding anniversary. The American National Retail Jeweler Association expanded on this list in 1937 by filling in the missing years up to the 14th wedding anniversary, and the subsequent multiples of five up to the 50th year.

Budget ahead of time, order ahead of time and expect delivery delays. We would also like to add that if you’re in a highly-populated area, you’re going to be a prime target for box theft during the holiday season. It’s an unfortunate truth, but this is where planning ahead of time just saved your skin. If the delivery date doesn’t matter, you can ensure that you’ll be home for it without stressing for time. You hear a knock at the door, hop to, and boom: the package is safely inside.
Treat your paramour to an ancient skin care tradition that has recently resurfaced as one of the trendier elements of any routine. Generally, it's supposed to sooth skin, but it's also worth noting that Rose Quartz is linked with the Heart Chakra and love, so depending on what she believes, it can be a gift that speaks to both inner and outer beauty.
Go the extra mile with an exquisite present from our collection of personalized gifts for women. She’ll appreciate anything you choose for her, but personalizing a gift adds a distinctive touch that makes it hers alone. Monogrammed or embossed initials and other customized elements elevate an ordinary object, imparting a bespoke quality to it and transforming it into a treasured keepsake. And there’s a practical benefit: personalization can help identify the object if it’s ever lost. Choose a personalized gift and let her know you appreciate everything she does.
So you’ve gone to all the trouble to find what you thought was the perfect gift, only to read the expression on their face, and thank the stars above that you kept that gift receipt or proof of purchase. This is where you’ll have to pay serious attention to shopping online. Buying from stores that have brick and mortar establishments nearby will allow you to go with them, and physically exchange the gift for one of two things: store credit, or an item of equal or lesser value.
