Sending Happy Anniversary Wishes To A Couple

Why Celebrating Wedding Anniversaries Makes Love Last

Growing old together and embracing life’s many highs and lows is a blessing. Wedding anniversaries are important milestones to acknowledge, even if they are celebrating many years of marriage. They may not look like newlyweds, but they still feel the same in their hearts! 


Marking each step of the journey and helping couples create memories along the way plays a vital role in honouring a wedding anniversary, especially for your parents. Relationships that stand the test of time always deserve a celebratory gesture. At the source, wedding anniversaries are important personal milestones that any couple deserve to acclaim and enjoy. But it’s always lovely to find an anniversary gift for couples, join in and show your love! 


Whether it's your parents, relatives, or friends celebrating another year together, it's wonderful to mark the occasion in any way you can. From a simple happy anniversary message to an anniversary surprise party, anything goes. Besides being part of the festivities, you'll be helping the lucky lovebirds mark yet another milestone in their lives.


What To Write On An Anniversary Card For Parents?

How you mark the occasion for any special couple depends largely on your relationship with them. The closer you are to them, the more personal you can get with your happy anniversary message ideas and gifts. When it comes for ideas for what to say on your parents' anniversary, it's important to come up with something special. Whatever you choose, cards and good wishes are all part of the celebration. However, instead of a run-of-the-mill message, you could opt for lovely wedding anniversary quotes like these card message ideas.

Anniversary Gifts For Couples Who Have Everything

For couples that have been together for decades, finding the right gift to celebrate their anniversary needs a splash of creativity. That's because they've probably received all sorts of gifts with happy wishes for them as a couple over the years and really don’t need anything. But, don't lose hope. We've got a few inventive ideas for anniversary presents for people who have everything that they can share that are sure to help mark the occasion in an exciting way. 


Toast in style

Celebrations always require a toast to more good times. A champagne ice cooler for the happy couple will keep those drinks nicely chilled. You can have interesting barware engraved with their names or choose personalised glassware. To make it even more special, get map-etched glasses engraved with locations that hold meaning for them. It could be where they first met, their first date, or even their wedding venue. A vintage Moet hamper will let them celebrate in style.

Mark travel destinations

For any couple that has wanderlust, why not get them a scratchable travel map? This is a great way to say happy anniversary to both of you, maybe with a surprise weekend away. They can mark all the destinations they've been to together by simply scratching them on the map. You can find poster-sized maps where they can easily add their bucket list destinations too.

Look to the stars

What nicer way to send a wedding anniversary message than with a custom star map. All you need are details of when the couple first met or their wedding day, and you can gift a framed version of the night sky on that day. Or name a star in their honour that will live on forever. This is a particularly nice anniversary gift for parents or grandparents on a 50th wedding anniversary to symbolise the generations of children and grandchildren that will live on after them.

Detail each milestone

As couples get older, events become more important, so ensure they keep track of them with a guided journal or memory box. The lovebirds can note down all those happy times they've been through together and add photos. If it’s your parent’s anniversary, you can help them by putting together framed photos of your favourite memories paired with sweet messages. 


These ideas all make lovely anniversary wishes for a couple to remind them of everything they have shared and achieved.


For sentimental couples, mark their anniversary by giving them creative items like:

  • A cute plaster statue of them holding hands
  • An anniversary plate with their sketch drawn inside
  • A custom-made anniversary art piece for their wall
  • Heartwarming mugs or prints with a personalised message 
  • Matching luggage and passport covers for their travels
  • An intersection of love street sign photo with the couple's names as the roads
  • Comfy his and hers robes with their favourite bottle of wine
  • Personalised jewellery with their initials, kids' names, or the location where they were married
  • A 'We found each other' jigsaw puzzle that's an aerial view of where the couple met.
