Unusual Anniversary Gifts - Ideas to Make Your Presents Unique

Are you wondering what could be some good unusual anniversary gifts to get?

We hear all about the traditional anniversary gifts and how many people prefer to stick with tradition, but some couples are just not into these gifts at all.

What do you do when you find that you have no interest in tradition on your anniversary, but want to celebrate the occasion with an unusual gift that reflects how you feel about your spouse? You look around and think - a lot, about what you should give that says how you feel and is really a memorable present at the same time.

Each couple is different

In looking for unusual anniversary gifts, the first thing that you need to know is that not all couples are the same, so if you have a special "rhythm" with your spouse, you're not alone. If you're not a traditional couple, how can you be planning to give this type of gift? You can't and you shouldn't.

Some of the best ways to give unusual anniversary gifts come with the planning, and it doesn't mean that you have to spend a ton of money if you don't have it; it might just mean that you do something really, really special for the one you're committed to.

By looking at the individual nature of your relationship and personalities, you can plan for a truly unique and special anniversary gift no matter whether you're celebrating your first or 50th.

What would your spouse really like to have?

You might need to think on this one for a bit, or even ask, but sometimes, the best and most unique anniversary gift is the one thing that your spouse would really like to have.

Not sure what to get for an unusual anniversary gift? Why not ask well enough in advance so that he has no idea that you're planning to get him the new surround sound system that he so desires, or the skydiving adventure that he's been talking about for years? When you ask your spouse what he or she would really like to have, you can make your job much easier than if you were to just "wing it" with a sweater that you know he'll hate.

Once you know what she wants, the key is to make her think she might never get it, and then surprise her with the presentation. For example, if your wife has been dreaming of a pair of diamond hoops, why not say nothing about it, but pay attention to them the next time she shows them to you? Then, make a comment like, "If we could afford it, you know I would get them for you."

Then, make sure that you can afford to not only buy them, but consider having them sent to her office on your anniversary, or put them on her bedside table so that when she wakes up in the morning, they are there for her to see.

The key when you're giving an unusual anniversary gift is to make your spouse think that you have no idea about what he wants, and then give it to him in a casual or special way that will truly surprise him. Consider mailing him some tickets to a concert or sporting event with a card. He'll never see it coming, and when you don't mention it, you're likely to make his day and show him how much you really care.

Unusual anniversary gifts can help to keep your relationship strong and alive and show both of you how much you really care for each other, so don't hesitate to use a little bit of imagination. And, even if you're only promising to give your wife a full body massage to help her de-stress and relax, the surprise and love in her eyes is something you'll likely never forget.
