A line from 1986’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off says ‘life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

One thing you never want to miss in life is your anniversary.  Of course, more goes into an anniversary than just remembering it. This is a time of the year where you get to show your significant other that the time you’ve been together truly meant something to you.

Anniversaries can also be a very stressful time because finding the best gift for the occasion is not easy. While we’re obviously not familiar with your relationship, we can give you some ideas for when you’re completely stuck.

1. Engraved Drinking Glasses

What’s better than giving your loved one a personalized gift? Getting a personalized gift for both of you.

If you and your significant other drink anything–literally anything–this is a great gift for you. This is especially true if you’ve moved in together, or are just considering it. Nothing makes you feel welcome somewhere like a cup with your name on it.

All kinds of engraved glasses can be ordered. Some have names on them, but others have city maps if there’s a particular place you want to remember.

You don’t even have to buy them. If you or someone you know is good with crafts, getting an engraved glass might be no trouble at all.

2. Leather Overnight Bag

While Frye Logan’s leather overnight bag may have been designed for men, there’s nothing about it that says it has to be used by men.

This can be a great gift for anyone, especially the traveler in your life, or people who are fond of leather. For this latter group, there are plenty of other leather anniversary gifts if you just know where to look.

3. Coffee Maker

It’s hard to suggest a specific coffee maker, since there are so many on the market, and everybody seems to have their own unique preference.

For instance, there are the single cup coffee makers that are popular. This is useful for those who live by themselves or for those whose housemates don’t agree with them on coffee.

There’s also the more traditional coffee pot. These are a more classic way to brew coffee, and many of the modern versions have had other functions added in. 

The Top Anniversary Gifts for Anyone

We’ve mentioned a few of the top anniversary gifts in the paragraphs above, but there are plenty more out there. You should also keep in mind that everybody has their own ideas and interests, so there’s no one-size-fits-all gift.

If you’re still short on ideas, or just want to look around a little more, we encourage you to do more research on your own. 

It should also be noted that sometimes acts say more than gifts. Maybe you should take your loved one to the site of your first date, for instance.
