Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Husbands - A Gift for a Man
Wedding anniversary gifts for husbands. Wedding anniversaries are special occasions for the couple as well as for the children and those in the immediate family. Friends often get excited, too, if there's a party planned to celebrate the event. It's often easy to think of wedding anniversary gifts for the woman, but it can be very difficult to come up with good anniversary gift ideas for the man.
Here are some thoughts about wedding anniversary gifts for him. If you're someone honoring the wedding anniversaries of your friends, you'll probably be giving a gift to the couple. However, if you're a close friend or a close relative like a sibling or a colleague of the man, you might want to give him a little something.
If you're that close, you probably know some of is tastes, so that shouldn't be too hard. A favorite bottle of wine or liquor that he can take home to share with his wife is a good idea. Or you might want to come up with a humorous comment and a gift that's just for him when he needs a day to himself away from the family.
You could give a golf day or a batting cage certificate and state in the card it comes in that this gift is so he can enjoy himself and come back to his home ready to be a great and responsible husband once again.
Another option when selecting a wedding anniversary gift for him is to get a certificate to a restaurant the couple would both enjoy so he can take his spouse out to dinner without worrying about the expense or having to think about where to go.
If you're the wife thinking of anniversary gift ideas for your husband, it probably is best that you think outside the box. Articles about gifts for men sometimes suggest women give them flowers or candy or something nice to wear. As egalitarian as this sounds, it's more than likely that most men don't appreciate those things the way women do.
Men are often less interested in things and more interested in experiences. Sexuality is a big experience they're interested in, of course. So if you're feeling adventurous, consider buying the lingerie he'd like (instead of what you'd like) and promise to model it for him. If you want to add to this, you can also promise some behavior you know he'd love that you often don't have the time or the inclination to offer.
Another way to spice things up is to get him a certificate for a nice hotel that has themed rooms. If he's into beach or safari, there's often a hotel in a nearby city that can help you create the atmosphere that would release the tiger in him. As you're pondering anniversary gift ideas for him, you might take that experiential theme in a different direction.
If he loves watching race cars, for instance, you can buy him a certificate for a lesson and a spin around a course in a real racing car. You can get him one for a ride in a hot air balloon, or promise him an afternoon at the racetrack so he can bet on horses guilt free.
The point is that a responsible husband often craves a sense of freedom and of recaptured youth. He wants to feel that his wife sees him as a vital, viral man and not someone who's been completely tamed.
By choosing a gift that offers him an experience he'd love, you tell him that you understand and accept this adventurous part of him. In fact, your admiration for this part of your man will make him that much more appreciative of you and that much more eager to meet your needs.
So as you consider wedding anniversaries and your anniversary gift ideas for him, remember that the two of you do not necessarily think alike about presents and buy what he'd enjoy, not what you'd like him to enjoy.
