Love is two hearts beating as 1.
A recent study by UC Davis shows that when you look into your lover’s eyes, your hearts begin syncing up with each other.
After 3 minutes of eye contact, your heart rates can become almost identical.
Researchers believe that this phenomenon occurs because of the intense physical and emotional connection we have with our partners.
As you get ready to celebrate your love this anniversary, honor your connection by finding a gift that comes straight from your heart.
Read on to learn about the best anniversary gift ideas for her.
Customizing Anniversary Gift Ideas for Her
According to the Life Hype blog, When it comes to finding the best anniversary gift ideas for her, you should think about what you already know about your partner.
Here are some of the questions you can ask to help you pick out a gift that she’ll cherish forever:
What type of things does she like spending their time doing?
What gifts have you given her in the past that got a big reaction?
Does she prefer going out for a night of fun or staying in and snuggling up to a good movie?
Does she love to travel? Perhaps NYC experiences will make her eyes sparkle.
If you’re thinking about getting her jewelry, then take a moment to think about the jewelry pieces you see her wearing the most.
Does she prefer silver or gold, big earrings, or little ones?
If silver is her go-to jewelry choice, consider getting a sterling silver chain necklace.
Remember that it’s perfectly okay to get more than one gift for your anniversary.
If you’re unsure what she’ll enjoy, play it safe by getting 2-3 small things.
Next, let’s look at the best snuggly gift ideas.
Cozy Cuddly Accessories
In a recent study, researchers found that people enjoy getting fancy gifts from people they don’t know well, and practical gifts from those they have are close to.
If your loved one enjoys sleeping in and lazy days hanging out at the house, then getting them some thoughtful snuggly accessories could be the perfect gift.
Here are some of the cozy and cuddly accessories you might want to buy:
Best Mom Ever Shirt
To add a touch of romance to your gift, find a way to customize whatever item you choose to buy.
For example, let’s say you decide to buy her a big, fluffy blanket.
Pick a blanket that’s her favorite color or one that has an image on it she loves.
Ask yourself about what flowers or animals she loves or what materials you know she’d enjoy her blanket to be.
Whether you get a blanket, robe, sheet set, slippers, or pajamas, you can also add a romantic experience to be a part of the gift.
Create a Magical Dining Experience at Home
If you know a night at home is right up your loved one’s alley, then why not play chef for the evening?
Even if you’re not a great cook, you can always find simple recipes that still taste amazing.
On top of preparing a meal and dessert, you should also transform your house to make the dining experience magical.
Here are a few ways you can turn your dining room into a romantic scene:
Make a name for your “restaurant.”
Find a theme for your “restaurant” (tropical, western, starlight, etc.)
Play ambient nature sounds (rain forest, ocean, birds)
Play your partner’s favorite music on a separate speaker system
Use LED candles for lighting
Use a fancy table cloth and quality dining ware
On the morning of your anniversary, give her a card that has an invitation to your wonderful dining experience.
Use your restaurant’s name and put down the address as your home’s on the invitation.
All day long, she’ll enjoy knowing you have a special surprise planned for her that doesn’t require leaving the house.
Gift Experiences for Her
While creating a dining oasis at home is the perfect gift for some, others prefer to get out of the house when it’s time to celebrate.
If you and your lover enjoy exploring the world together, then you should consider giving an experience as a gift this anniversary.
Here are some of the best gift experiences for her:
Aroma Therapy Workshop
Baking School Class
Helicopter Flight Lessons
All of the gift experiences we listed above are a mix of learning and doing.
One of the best things about learning together is that it brings you closer together as a couple.
Together you’ll be able to overcome any fears or self-doubt you may have and victoriously complete whatever workshop interests you the most!
Party Style Experiences
If her idea of a good time involves wine, good music, or just having fun, then consider finding an experience that’s less instructional and more recreational.
Here are some of the romantic experiences that will satisfy any party monster or adventurous spirit:
Wine tasting tour
Hot air balloon
If you live near any theme park or tourist attraction, find out if they have any nighttime events.
Certain parks will have concerts or other types of nighttime entertainment you can enjoy while also behaving like teenagers and riding every single ride.
If you don’t have any rollercoaster theme parks near you, then look into a hot air balloon ride or helicopter night tour.
