For each year, we give you not only the themes, but also gift suggestions you can really use. We even have some cute anniversary date ideas if you need some inspiration. Since budgets and gift-giving traditions vary, we’ve suggested both inexpensive gestures and over-the-top ideas. Some of these ideas could work for more than one anniversary year, so if you need extra inspiration, read through the whole list. We hope you enjoy it, and we wish you lots of days worth celebrating, all through the year.
Remind your loved ones what matters most with this easy Christmas gift. Bonus: It's a super inexpensive holiday present. Download and print our free sign, then glue a magnet to the front of a framed wood plaque from a crafts store, then stick a metal clip to the magnet to hold the artwork. This Christmas craft comes in handy for displaying holiday cards, too.
The traditional gift for the 15th anniversary is crystal, and we have to say: It's what's on the inside that counts. Quartz crystals are used in many watches to help keep time more accurately. When selecting a watch for your boo, we recommend going with Fossil. The company has a blend of high-quality time-pieces and sparkly smartwatches to fit anyone's style. Some, like the styles pictured above, use quartz crystals to aid with time keeping.
Don’t get overwhelmed by the thought of taking over Santa’s duties. With this list of gifts you’ll have a great many gifts that you can put under the tree that are sure to get the desired response. From remote controlled tanks and drones to basketballs that give you stats on your smartphone, you’ll find something for everyone on your list. “Thanks Santa!” will ring through your house again and again. 

Just Like the Newsies - There’s just something classic about brown paper and leather strip tying it all together. This is fairly cheap since the paper isn’t bleached or treated in most cases. It also saves you from buying a big roll of wrapping paper when you’re only wrapping a single gift. This wrapping is excellent for gifting clothing or stylish items.
Another fantastic product that is gaining popularity is an essential oil diffuser. These are little devices that you add water and just a few drops of an essential oil of your choice too. Then, they diffuse the scent of the essential oil throughout whatever space they are in. Different essential oils have different benefits, so this can be a wonderful way to help her with a variety of things from getting over colds faster to getting to sleep easier or just simply filling her home, workplace, or even car with lovely scents in a more natural way than traditional air fresheners.

"Manly arts such as flying jets, riding cross country on a motorcycle, designing and building my own… more homes. Learning to paint with oils, running a small business, baking my own breads. Brewing beer, distilling and aging whisky. But I never bought a 5 pound pork belly until a week ago. Local butcher, apply the rub from Man Crates, bag and wait....but... I have never built my own cold smoker either. I had a week to complete that project. A little design and engineering from youtube and the web helped. Combination apple wood and hickory!! Stunning results. Perfection. Bacon with eggs, bacon with roasted brussels sprouts, bacon bits with tofu and vegetables and bacon with bacon." - Alan less 

So he’s more of a hiker; that’s okay. July has Independence Day sales on a lot of hiking gear, outdoor furniture, and even grills. It’s the dead set center of the summer, and in certain areas, those are the only months where they can really do anything with the great outdoors. Give them an addition to their hiking arsenal, and pocket the shaved-off top of the budget to keep for yourself (or grab them an additional gift). You’ll also see similar sales on Labor Day come the beginning of September.
So you know what to look for depending on their style, but what if you’re not entirely certain what their “style” really is? Well, there’s going to be a certain gray area that you’re able to cling to. Go with function, go with neutral colors (which we’re going to talk about in-depth in a moment), find items that appear to be universally accepted by most men.

One last thing; don’t put the pressure on them for a reaction. Men don’t want to make others feel bad if they don’t like the gift, and the gift-giver is lighting up with anticipation of a reaction. Men will provide honest reactions, but the more and more pressure on them, the harder it’s going to be for them to reveal their reaction, and make the situation deflate/awkward. Don’t put the pressure on.


Grabbing a gift card from one of the major room retailers, like Hotels.com, gives you a unique opportunity to play the hero. He may spend it on a free night during business travel, or he might spend it to take the family out and take the financial pressure off of a weekend of fun. Either way, it’s an ace in the hole that he can keep in his wallet for when the proper time arises.
This thoughtful tea kit is a great Christmas gift for those who love hot drinks on cold, wintry days. Ginger, cloves, and dried apple chips flavor the warming homemade tea mixture that brings holiday warmth. Simply fill tea filters with the premade mixture, wrap with string to close, and tie on a cinnamon stick or two. Finish the Christmas gift with holiday tags and cups.
The time association rule directly affects what you should be spending, and how big of lofty a gift you should be looking at. Opting for smaller gifts is better for a short relationship time, whether you’re dating or just friends. If I have a friend for six weeks, and I knew their birthday was coming up, I’m going to get them something small that’s half-obligatory, half “Hey, we’re buds, have something nice.” The longer you know or are with someone, the higher the expectation is on the gift.
This is exact what I was looking for. The rose itself is perhaps 90% of the size of a real one, although the stem is shorter. The pot at the bottom is about the same size as the rose at the top. The rose part of this item appears to be solid steel (based on the weight and inflexibility of the material), not a rose dipped in something. The rose is completely unpainted. I'm not a flower person, but it looks like a rose to me (and it made my wife happy). It was exactly what I was looking for. Well mostly. It took a pair of pliers to remove the little plastic tag that they stick in the pot that says "11th anniversary". I got this for Mothers day (after our 16th anniversary last month), so the tag had to ... full review

This isn’t a bag thing, but it also comes with an additional difficulty factor, one that we wanted to flesh out in an entire section. The practical guy has three types of people who are going to understand his hobbies or understand what items will make his career/job easier to perform. They see these gifts as optimizing their life, which is a big up for the happiness factor. The types of people and the reactions they can expect are as follows:


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.
We all know someone who can use a little more desk organization for Christmas. (Or maybe that someone is you? We don’t judge Christmas gifts you want to keep). Organizing is made more exciting with these labeled glass jars. Simply spray the jars with three coats of chalkboard paint. Once the paint is dry, label each jar with a chalk pen. If hand-lettering isn't for you, you can add white adhesive letters in your favorite font to label the jars instead.
Christmas gifts are specially selected presents that are given to loved ones during the holiday season in western cultures. Personalized gifts, unique presents, gift baskets, handmade items and the like are wrapped in festive paper and placed under decorated Christmas trees or presented at gift exchanges all over the world to celebrate the Christmas holiday. In the United States and some other countries, these gifts are typically opened on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day (December 25th). Christmas gifts are a reminder of the gifts given to the Christ child by the three Magi. A highly commercialized practice in the U.S., approximately 86% of Americans buy Christmas presents for their family members and friends.

There are always going to be obvious gift ideas for major holidays like Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day, but have the women in your life gotten the same types of gifts year after year? Do something different! She will always appreciate if you get her a gift, but it’ll mean a lot more if it is something unique that shows you took some time to think about it. 

Spending more doesn’t make the gift more valuable; in fact, it can actually spark more of an argument than just ignoring the event, and not getting him a gift at all. If you’re the SO, you might spark a feeling of indebtedness from the gift recipient. Even in our progressive world, there are still issues where men will feel inadequate based on their spouse earning more than them, providing more “value” to the family (however they like to measure it), and so on. Getting a gift that’s expensive or out of an acceptable price range, could send a bad message. Men are simple, and enjoy simple gifts; study what you believe they’ll want, but don’t overthink it and psych yourself out.
If you’re zoning-in on their interests, use the knowledge at your disposal to garner a good foundation. If you’ve heard anything in passing, such as, “I’d really like to do this, but I don’t have X to do it with,” you just figured out something vital: they don’t have everything they need to complete their desired tasks, and you now have a much more narrow margin of error. Bonus points if you remember exactly what they said they needed, even if it’s something that’s not inline with your interests.
Corporate Casual - A straightforward way to wrap a corporate casual gift, say at an office party or outing to a co-worker’s birthday after work, is to grab an inexpensive belt from your nearest store and wrap it around their present. It’s low maintenance, and while it allows them to see what the present is, it’s a corporate-friendly way to go about it and get a quick smile from the guy in question.

He travels a lot, he’s constantly taking Uber in the big city when he’s on a business trip, or just doesn’t own a car. Nothing’s more thoughtful than giving them a safe ride home from one too many drinks at the bar, or a safe place to stay when they’re traveling abroad. Airbnb gives them the ability to stay in multiple countries, as well, so international travel doesn’t have to include expensive hotels and a depleted level of funds.
If he loves to eat, grill it up, handle the kitchen, or he’s a major coffee connoisseur, then you’ve got a wide range of gifts you can get that he probably doesn’t have.

He may not be a master chef, but with your thoughtful gift(s), who knows? He could be on his way.

For one, procrastination is not your friend. If you’re reading this in a panic, you’re not alone. There’s a lot of last-minute gifters out there, but from this point going forward, you can’t procrastinate.

When it comes to exchanging, you might hit restocking fees or shipping fees if you’re going to send it back to an online store or manufacturer. Restocking fees generally apply to electronics or other easily damaged items that need to be inspected and tested before they can be put back on the shelf. Even if you gently opened the box, they can still require new packaging, and again, it’s all depending on store policy. You can pay anywhere from five to twenty percent for a restocking fee, which will require you to fork up some more cash if you’re trying to get a gift of the same caliber.

Everyone always thinks about the house or the bride, but few think about what the husband wants on his big day. They’re melding two lives together, so he should have something equally excellent to hang up in their home with pride. If you’re the best man, you’ve got a hefty responsibility to get something meaningful and stylish (and avoid inputting inside jokes, as well). Make it meaningful, and ready to warm their house for years to come.
They don't call it Sweet 16 for nothing. Even though this is a traditional and modern gift pick, silver has historically meant clarity. Silver holloware (think: anything related to the dinner table that is not silverware so bowls, trays, and so on) symbolizes unity as well since you enjoy it when you sit down to dine together for your sixteenth anniversary.

We’ll start with the one that’s going to make your life the most simple: a gift receipt. These are like Willy Wonka’s golden tickets, giving you free range to correct your error as pain-free as possible. Even with these, you’ll still have to provide a form of photo ID in some places. It’s rare, but it’s something you don’t want to be caught without, especially if you’re stuck in the return line after a major holiday.
The Air-King recently returned to the Rolex line after being retired for a number of years. It's the only Rolex whose logo—the crown and signature—is printed in two different colors: green and yellow.

When it comes to party favors or Christmas stocking stuffers, we have adorable plush toys, finger puppets, puzzles and other mini toys.

That last rule is why you’ll see men with square watches, generally with broader bands than standard watches. Pocket squares, sharp-angled ties, and flattering patterns all play into the rugged stud style, as well. If you end up going for a tie, go with stripes, lines, or a plaid design. It’s all straight-cut, giving more dimension to the angles of their face, and their body.

Every man needs a black suit and a pair of dress shoes, but these days, gents are taking fashion by storm with a more formal wardrobe. We’re all reminiscent of the roaring twenties through the fifties, around the time that suits and dress shirts started to die-out, and more modern clothing started to stick. Men actually enjoy looking their best, meaning you can choose between cufflinks, dressy boots, and shoes, or watches to complete their formal outfit (we have an insane catalog of watch buying guides depending on what they’re into).

When my husband and I were approaching our first anniversary, we made a deal that we would choose gifts that align with the traditional anniversary gifts, year by year. I don’t know why, exactly, but something about giving gifts that have been given for hundreds of years appealed to us, I guess. To review, here are the traditional wedding anniversary gifts:
People are obsessed with essential oil diffusers. And why wouldn’t they be? They transform your home with good smells and good vibes. Shopping for someone who is always stressed (hello hi, that's me)? Bring peace and happiness into their life this holiday season with our favorite oil diffuser. We tested the most popular models a few months ago and found this one by InnoGear to be the best. 

This Christmas gift makes an adorable office decoration or home accessory. Colorful baker's twine and papier-mache come together to create a too-cute monogrammed Christmas gift perfect for mom, best friends or sisters. Embellish a flat wooden frame with varying widths of wrapped twine on opposite corners. Then display a twine-wrapped papier-mache letter inside the frame opening. For a full Christmas theme, gravitate toward red and green twine.
He works his fingers to the bone, and he’s being given a serious promotion. The kind of promotion where there’s going to be a celebration. Whether you’re orchestrating it or not, it’s up to you to get something that really makes an impact. These events don’t call for functional items, but rather, significant and personalized trophy-style gifts. Engraved pens, embroidered briefcases (for their new office), or a new custom nameplate for their new desk. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. We’re personal fans of blending a few items with commemoration, and function. Things like custom mugs, custom luggage sets (if their new job means they’ll be traveling a lot and things of the sort.

Use our simple kids' category filters to sort your options to find the right personalized presents for kids that fit within your price range. Tailor each item to your liking and preview the result before buying to ensure you get exactly what you expect.
