Personalised Calendars – with every month having it’s own romantic picture and their own names.
Personalised Mugs – You choose whether the mugs are funny, romantic, or downright cheesy. But they’ll enjoy breakfast in bed together with their own special mugs.
Rose for the Garden – if the couple are both avid gardeners, why not buy them a plant for their anniversary? There are lots of aptly named varieties, particularly when it comes to roses, and this kind of gift can be enjoyed for many years to come.
Plant a Tree – still looking at things for the garden, how about the gift of a tree? A silver birch sapling would be very appropriate, but make sure they’ve got room in their garden to let it grow.
