Your wedding anniversary is a very special date and choosing the perfect gift is important… but it can also be a really difficult decision.
You know your husband. You know what he enjoys doing. You know what he likes to eat and drink. But, is he difficult to buy for? Does he tell you he has everything he needs (especially as he has you, right?!)
This year, get him something a bit different… and even do something a bit different…
Take a read through some of our ideas to help inspire you to find the perfect wedding anniversary activity and gift for your husband.
Do something new and exciting together
Anniversary activity gifts
If your husband is really active and enjoys sports and exercising, why not arrange to do a new activity together? Try a new sport.
There are loads of indoor climbing venues, as well as centres organising water sports. We love the paddleboarding craze. It's perfect for a summer wedding anniversary activity.
You could also arrange something more traditional, but just as fun, such as bowling or simply finding a new route for a run together or a short hike that leads to your favourite pub.
Go somewhere new together
Anniversary event gifts
With so much opening up after the restrictions of the pandemic, now is a great time to treat your partner to a fantastic day or night out.
Who are his favourite bands? What theatre shows is he desperate to see? Are there any upcoming sporting events he'd love to be a spectator at?
Don’t forget the UK is holding the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022!
Book some tickets and surprise him. You get to spend quality time together, experiencing great music, fantastic entertainment or sporting history.
Tickets are also a great ‘paper’ 1st anniversary gift.

Book some time off together
Anniversary holiday gifts
When was the last time you went away, just the two of you?
If you have young children, care for others or have busy jobs, it can be hard to make time to get away.
If going abroad or away from home for a few nights is out of the question, why not organise a wonderful staycation?
Both book some time off and enjoy everything you love about your local area. Book dinner at his favourite restaurant. Visit that museum or exhibition that’s on your doorstep, but you’ve never been too. Leave some time to simply ‘laze around the house too’ – all chores are banned and a takeaway is a must.
Indulge him with his favourite treats
Anniversary food and drink gifts
Wedding anniversaries are calorie-free, don’t you know?! Perhaps, we can’t prove or promise that, but if you know the man in your life loves to try new and exciting food and beverages, then taking this as a starting point for a wedding anniversary, will certainly inspire some exciting ideas.
Has a new restaurant opened recently, offering cuisine that is a little different from your usual Friday night pub meal?
Do you know of a new deli, café or coffee shop that you would both love?
If you want the ‘new and exciting’ to come direct to you, then, you have to take a look at our wide range of hampers.
We have Devon-made rum, real ales, craft beer, English sparkling, Argentinian wines, and more.
Introduce your hubby to all kinds of great products… many from award-winning British producers. Indulge him with his favourite things:
