There are two issues around buying an anniversary gift for your girlfriend. The first of these is that if you forget to get her a gift then you’re in serious trouble, so your “make up” gift better be damned good. Even if you’re one of the lucky few guys who actually does remember your anniversary each year then you still have the pressure of trying to find anniversary gifts for your girlfriend. This is also a little bit tougher because anniversary gifts need to be truly romantic, so you’re not going to be able to get away with a gift card.
4 Anniversary Gift Ideas For Your Girlfriend
Normally buying your girlfriend a set of earrings can be a bit of a hit-and-miss experience, because you’re probably not aware of the current fashion trends in female jewelry – unless you’re a total metrosexual, in which case you don’t even need to read this part of the article. One way to get around current fashion trends is to simply buy her a set of earrings which are timeless, regardless of how much of a fashionista she might be. What are these miracle earrings I speak of? Pearl earrings guys – either stud or drop style, you can’t go wrong when buying these. You could also present them to her by saying something like “The beauty of nature to adorn a natural beauty” or something along those lines. You’re welcome!
As much as women complain about how fattening chocolate is that doesn’t take away from a couple of important things men need to know about chocolate. Firstly dark chocolate can have a dramatic impact on your girlfriends sex drive, high-quality chocolate can and will enhance her mood and she’s going to crave chocolate at least once per month when Mother Nature comes calling. Just make sure that if you do decide to buy her chocolates for your anniversary that you agree to eat your own fair share and, most importantly, only buy a selection of high-quality chocolates like those offered by the artisans at Ghirardelli for example.
She’ll probably look at you funny when you give her an ice-cream maker for her anniversary but oddly enough it’s one of the most frequently bought gifts for women, both online and offline. Most guys stay away from buying their girlfriends anything to do with “kitchen stuff” because it always seems a little bit tacky and lazy. Buying your girlfriend a machine that makes either ice-cream or chocolate (or any form of pastry) is the one exception to this rule, plus a good ice-cream maker can also make frozen yoghurt and sorbets too.
There are some gifts that you can never really go wrong with and a cashmere sweater is one of those – it’s just as timeless as the pearl earrings I mentioned earlier. You can get a high-quality cashmere sweater for around $90 and they come in a wide variety of colors, so you’ll find a color that she likes.
Just remember guys that every anniversary is important and that the gift you buy your girlfriend for your 1st, 2nd or 20th anniversary needs to be thoughtful and romantic – they’re the only real guidelines you need to follow.
