It’s a charming wedding anniversary gift idea no matter how many years you have under your belt. Inside are 35 different cards to scratch off, revealing creative date night ideas that’ll create new memories. 


Wedding Anniversary Journal by Duncan & Stone



If you’re a duo who appreciates sentimentality, this pick is for you. This sweet journal is designed to be used for years to come, and the ideal pick for a first anniversary gift, as it’s filled with prompts for you to fill out together at the end of each year. You’ll recount favorite memories, how you celebrated, and other hallmarks of your time together. It’s a keepsake journal that will serve as a thoughtful marriage time capsule.

Catalog your past 365 days of memories in a charmingly retro way with this custom viewfinder. Perfect for ‘80s babies (or anyone who appreciates a good dose of nostalgia), this classic kid’s toy can be personalized with seven of your favorite shots from the last year, so you can finally get them off your smartphone and into the world. 


SolidRockDesignCo First Dance Song Photo Frame



If you’re a newlywed, you’re probably on the hunt for a 1-year anniversary gift that perfectly nods to that magical moment. This custom print from Etsy achieves just that. Surrounding one of your favorite wedding day shots, you can include the lyrics to your first dance song. (Or another special tune, like the karaoke song you tackled together on your second date.) Even better, it’s printed on gorgeous textured watercolor paper, which nods to the traditional first year anniversary gift theme of paper.


PeachCustomShirts Custom Embroidered Roman Numeral Hoodie



Nothing says “blissfully in love” quite like a matching outfit. This pair of hoodies is a gift for you both, allowing you to showcase your couple’s style in, well, style. Choose from dozens of hues (matching or not). Then, include your anniversary and one another’s initials in the custom field. It’ll be embroidered on the sleeves in Roman numerals, with of course, a heart on the sleeves. 


The Anniversary Clock



Time flies when you’re in love, and this thoughtful memento pays tribute to the many days (and hours, and seconds) you’ve spent by each other’s side. Available in several different colors (including rose gold, black, and white) and finished with a personalized plaque on the front, this timepiece clocks the years, months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds since you said your vows. It’s a sentimental wedding anniversary gift idea they’ll never see coming. 


SugarCreekLane Personalized Leather Bookmark



The best anniversary gift ideas team sentimentality and functionality together into a memorable present. While this bookmark may seem simple, it strikes just the right note for the spouse with a towering TBR pile and sentimental streak. Engraved in the leather is a sweet phrase (“To many more chapters together”) alongside your initials and anniversary date. 


Blissy Pure Silk Sleep Mask



Sometimes, true love is knowing how to say you’re sorry. Is your late-night reading or TV light the reason your spouse has had less-than-perfect shut-eye this year? A silky eye mask might be the way to get back in their good graces. Bonus: The 12-year anniversary gift theme is silk, so this is a fun pick if you’re marking that milestone. 


Mauviel Copper Fry Pan

Williams Sonoma


By the time your seventh anniversary rolls around, you’ve probably worn through many of the kitchen gadgets and gear you put on your registry almost a decade ago. The good news? The traditional seventh anniversary gift is copper, which happens to make for some stunning cookware. This do-it-all pan from Mauviel is a cult classic, thanks to its superior construction and even heating. Your favorite chef will feel so spoiled. 


Recycled Glass Birth Month Flower Vase

Uncommon Goods


A bouquet is a classic anniversary gift idea, so you really can’t go wrong with a beautiful bundle of blooms. That being said, if you’re looking to really wow your spouse, why not have the stems waiting for them in a stunning vase, too? This pretty piece from Uncommon Goods comes in 12 distinct colorways, each representing a month of the year. Choose the one that best represents your anniversary for a standout gift that doubles down on meaningful details. 


Anniversary Wine Box

Uncommon Goods


Still stumped thinking of what to get for your anniversary? Look to the year’s themes. For couples shopping for a 5-year anniversary gift, wood is the way to go. This clever wine box hits the theme from two angles, both with the material, as well as with the carved tree motif decorating the front. The box itself boasts compartments for three different bottles of wine (or another favorite booze) that you can then open on your fifth, seventh, and tenth anniversaries.

If puzzles are your thing, this custom creation is the missing piece to your next anniversary celebration. Your one-of-a-kind design will showcase an aerial view of where you met, as well as one very charming phrase.


14K Diamond Stud Earrings



There are just some instances that call for a wow factor, and your tenth anniversary is one such occasion.

These heirloom-worthy studs are as timeless as they come. In fact, they’ll look just as stunning today as they will in another decade.

It comes with 25 blank wood hearts on which you can pen personalized sentiments, from how you adore their sense of humor to your appreciation for their Elvis impression. 


Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug



Nothing says “I love you” better than a gift that solves a particular pain point in your partner’s life. If their morning coffee is constantly getting cold before they can get the kids out the door or sign off from their meeting, Ember is the best anniversary gift to show you care. With it, they’ll be able to keep their morning brew to the perfect temperature for 80 minutes or more.
