How to Pick the Perfect Anniversary Gift for Him

List: Posted: 04/04/11

Men can be more romantic than we give them credit for.  Chances are, when your anniversary rolls around, he will present you with a thoughtful and creative gift.  It's up to you to return the gesture with your own well-planned gift.  Keep in mind, too, that men might not be so different from women when it comes to an anniversary gift.

It is true that men are more likely to appreciate an intimate gift, such as some new lingerie for you.  You can also put together a basket of romantic lotions and oils and enclose a giftcard for a weekend away to the mountains or to the beach.  While you're away, schedule a massage together.  He will enjoy this gift more than you realize.

You can also buy jewelry for your man, but keep it close to things that he already wears.  If he does not normally wear a necklace, then he probably won't start, even if it is a gift from you.  Instead, pick out a great watch or a set of classic cufflinks.  If you can have engraving done, personalize the gift with a date or an inscription.

There is also the gift that keeps on giving.  By signing him up for a monthly gift, he will remember your love once every month when the gift arrives on the doorstep.  There are wine of the month clubs, but he might not be a wine kind of guy.  Instead, seek out a beer of the month club, or even a steak or cheese club.  His stomach, and his heart, will thank you.
