Whether your gal is an avid reader or a total beauty addict, these days there’s a subscription box for pretty much everything she loves! This means great news for all of you out there struggling with anniversary gift ideas that have a slightly more personal touch. Take this  book subscription for example.

There are lots of ways to celebrate an anniversary, but one ritual that's stood the test of time is toasting the milestone with a good bottle of wine. And this special anniversary gift for girlfriend will allow you and your Mrs to do just that! But what makes clinking glasses such a special way to commemorate a marriage or relationship? Well, it all comes down to the wine you pick out. There's a lot to consider when it comes to choosing the right bottle for this anniversary gift for your girlfriend - including the type of wine, the year it was produced and where it was made. Or you could just throw caution to the wind and pick one with the prettiest label… Either way, personalising the box your bottle arrives in is certainly a super thoughtful anniversary gift idea that she’s sure to appreciate if she’s a lady who loves her vino. Plus, who wouldn’t love a personalised anniversary gift with their name on it?! 

5. Newspaper front page

The biggest news on the day you were married? Well, your wedding obviously! This is a seriously cute first wedding anniversary gift that you can gift her to commemorate the best day of your lives. While it may not have made the front page of the Times or Daily Mail, you can see what else happened on your special day with a personalised and framed front page edition which features the date you both said: “I do”. This is definitely one of the best wedding anniversary gift ideas if you and your partner both have a love of history too, as you’ll be able to look back in anniversaries to come and see just how much the world around you has changed...
