Wedding Anniversary Gifts: Perhaps one of the most difficult gifts to buy is the one that you’ll be giving on a wedding anniversary. This is because not only will your gift have to please your friend, the anniversary present will also have to please the partner. This is especially true if you are not really close friends with one of the partner.
Another thing that makes wedding anniversary gift giving difficult is the fact that there are limited items that one can give. Notice how most people would give the same gifts during weddings and anniversaries? This is the reason why! Gift ideas for anniversaries are very few and some are so expensive that it is not even within “thinking” distance.
Still, there are still ways to make your anniversary gift shopping a more fruitful experience than some people. Here are some tips that can help you with your search.

Sometimes the ugliest of gifts can be the most useful. Think of what the couple might need at home and consider that in your gift list. For instance, who would think of buying shower curtains or even a cleaner for the shower. This may not seem appropriate but if you are close friends with at least one of the couple, these kinds of gifts are better appreciated than perhaps drinking glasses or photo albums that are always on the list of anniversary gift ideas. Take note though that you are close to the couple as this may seem pretty intimate.
The word unique can have a hundred different meaning. One thing that you have to remember is to make your gift more personalized. Even if it is something that you can buy anywhere, you can put something in it to make it different. For instance if you bought an oven toaster, why not include something that they can cook or bake with the oven toaster? You can also make your own gifts. For instance, buy two towels and stitch their initials on the cloth.
Memories can be great gifts to people. But as memories are abstract, you can only give photos, music and even cards instead. Why not take a picture of the couple and have it framed? Go to a local craft store and have the picture concerted into a cross-stitch pattern that you can make. You can even start the work and then have them finish it. Another great idea is to compile their favorite music and photos and turn them into a video presentation. The list goes on and on.
