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.
Transform an old book into a pretty box for trinkets and other small items with this easy-to-make Christmas gift idea. Apply crafts glue to the inside back cover and close the book; let dry. Apply glue to the book's edges; let dry. Mark a rectangle on the first page about 1-inch from all sides. Use a crafts knife to cut along the mark through several pages. Remove the cut pages; continue cutting and removing pages until you've reached the desired depth. Seal the cut pages with clear glue to finish the keepsake box.
Brewery Tour and Tasting - One of our personal favorites. This gives him a chance to taste a private reserve, or meet the brewers and talk about the process. If you know they’re big on discovering new brews and batches, you’re about to give them the thrill of a lifetime. Find a local brewery, and discover their tasting room and private tours. It may cost you a nice chunk of change, but it’s an experience that they can’t just walk through the door and get.
They travel a lot, either because they like to, or they have to for work. Either way, being out on the road is distant and lonesome, and the right travel gift can put a smile on their face when they least expect it, and remind them of good friends at home. These tend to be practical and useful, optimizing their time out on the road (or up in the skies) and making things easier on them.
But what about birthday gifts for Dad? Personalized presents, whether it's a monogrammed tie or suitcase, also make great gifts for men, especially around Father's Day.

Deciding to go with a stylish clothing-related gift? Hitting Easter sales in mid to late April will blow your mind. These sales tend to focus on women, but assuming that their man is with them, or he’s also trying to look good in his Sunday best, they throw out some excellent sails on formalwear, and “kickback clothes” for the festivities and parties that take place after the actual events of Easter. Whether you’re religious or not, everybody can appreciate these sales.

The holiday season means a little more celebrating (ahem, wine), but that doesn’t have to be bad! Put that collection of wine corks to use with this creative Christmas gift. A wine cork base makes a bulletin board both functional and artsy—and we love the idea of hanging Christmas cards on it for the holidays. Choose a frame deep enough to hold whole corks, or cut the corks in half lengthwise with an extra-fine razor saw (available at crafts stores). Secure the corks to the frame backing using wood glue.
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.

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

Alcohol-Inspired Gift Tag - Gift tags are usually cash-grab items that we don’t really need, but if you do it this way, you’re getting function out of it, and possibly a laugh if you’re creative enough. Strap a $2.00 alcohol nip to the tag, and write something like, “I know I drive you to drink,” or something else that’s light, SFW humor along with it. This is perfect when towing the line with your boss or co-worker at a Christmas party, and saves you from having to wrap the entire gift.
You've done it: Year one of marriage is officially in the books. We're sure it's been a blur—and has come with its unexpected moments—but reaching this first major milestone is huge. Just as important? That first anniversary gift. Luckily for you, there's a traditional year-by-year protocol to anniversary presents, which makes things easier when it comes time to picking something out. Your first anniversary is typically marked with a paper gift. Why paper, you ask? As far as anniversary gifts go, the medium's price tag is usually on the lower end of the spectrum, which is usually appropriate for couples who are just starting out.

Housewarming items, things they can hang up and show-off to everyone else. These tend to not be as functional, but provide a touch of masculinity and a new elemental twist to their living space, office desk at work, or maybe even give them something they never knew existed. There’s a big term, called “the man who has everything.’ Truth is, he doesn’t; not yet.
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.

Nothing But Blue Skies - Work’s beating them down, and their body is a wreck. Who can afford to only work forty hours a week these days? An experience day at a pampering, relaxing retreat, all just for one day, is enough to convince them to take a load-off for once. It’s near impossible to justify a small vacation, but a one day only pampering event is hard to refuse. It allows them to still provide, and enjoy a guilt-free experience that’s selfishly about them, and nothing else.

"Man Crates is one of the coolest websites I found for manly gifts. Not only does the gift come in a… more wooden crate with its own crowbar but it comes with super cool items inside. He got 4 NHL glasses, hockey puck coasters, a bottle opener made from a used hockey stick, and a few top rated snacks! They have tons of different choices for the gifts in the crate but my husband Brendan loves his Flyers! Thank you so much for making my first anniversary gift to my husband so easy! He loves it!!” - Melissa less
