Memory Book

Make these unique anniversary gifts even more romantic by leaving some of the book blank with specified milestones such as “first grandbaby”, “first vacation without the kids”, or any other firsts that leave you daydreaming about your future together.

Photo Sessions

Among one of the most unique anniversary gifts is the gift that makes her feel as beautiful as you know she is. Book a sitting with a professional on-site photographer. Go to her favorite place and have the photographer snap away. Then, make sure to frame your favorites in your office so when she stops by for lunch, she will see just how proud you are to call her “wife”.

Design Your Own Anniversary Ring

The masterminds at Zale’s have done it again with the “do it yourself” jewelry design line. Design an extravagant diamond anniversary band or mix it up with untraditional colorful hues entwined in platinum or gold. Either way, these do-it-yourself designer pieces will be among the most unique anniversary gifts she could have ever imagined receiving.

Name a Star

By now, you have probably heard all about the buy-a-star program. It’s a wonderful way to show the one you love just how much you care. After you have your certificate, take your loved one to the planetarium for a look out of their telescopes for a magical night that is sure to be remembered forever.
