Five thoughtful wedding anniversary gift ideas

By Bonusprint on 17 August 2022

Looking for the perfect wedding anniversary gift? Here we delve into our top five ideas for thoughtful anniversary presents that celebrate the very best of what makes your love story so special.

Whether celebrating your first year of wedded bliss or commemorating a special marriage milestone, a thoughtful anniversary gift is a wonderful way to show your partner how much you care. From cute customised anniversary mugs to spectacular wedding wall art, finding the perfect gift to celebrate your anniversary is easy with bonusprint. Whatever you choose, our top tip for finding a wedding anniversary gift that hits the mark is to think outside the box and create a personalised gift that comes from the heart.

1. Anniversary photo book

A custom photo book is one of the best anniversary gifts to celebrate everything that makes your love special. Opt for one of our pre-designed wedding photo book templates if you want to relive the best moments from your wedding day. Simply select one of the 30+ wedding photo book designs and start uploading your favourite wedding photos.

For a special touch to your photo book, spend some time trying to find candid shots of the two of your surrounded by your loved ones on your special day, in addition to your professional wedding photography. Your wedding guests will undoubtedly have a treasure trove of unseen images on their phones, so reach out to a few friends and family members to see if you can discover any hidden gems.

2. Couple’s custom calendar

A custom couple’s calendar is a gift that just keeps on giving and makes for a unique anniversary present idea. Choose your favourite photos, upload one for every month to the bonusprint calendar editor, and look forward to looking at a new memento every month. Our customisable photo calendars are easy to create and packed with extra design options to make your personalised anniversary calendar shine. Add special dates throughout the calendar, including your anniversary, birthdays and any upcoming events, or explore our library of chic illustrations and fun backgrounds.

If you’re feeling particularly resourceful, make a fun photo project of your selection process for the calendar. Find photos of the two of you, individual shots, or even stunning landscape images from your most memorable trips, and sort them into date order. Make sure you match the month of your wedding to the correct month in the calendar, and then get to work on matching the rest! Maybe March takes you back to a wintery ski trip with the kids, or December takes you to your first Christmas at home together. It may take a little bit more effort but is a great way to remember the highlights of your journey together and bring many happy memories flooding back every month.

3. Wedding photo prints

Photo prints are always a great wedding anniversary gift and can be as extravagant or simple as you like. Print a couple of photos that mean the most to you and once they are delivered, simply pop them in a frame of your choice. For a sweet touch, handwrite captions on the back of your photo prints with the date and location as well as a few personal words.

Another idea for gifting wedding photo prints is to get creative with a few of the best photos from your big day. Choose a mixture of landscape and portrait shots, opt for different-sized photo prints, select a matt or gloss finish, and order your prints directly to your home. Play around with positioning your photo prints when your partner is out of the house, and surprise them on your anniversary with a beautiful photo gallery wall for your home.
