Year in and year out I have seen people flip through the pages of a gift book, looking for unique anniversary gifts. I have some bad news people, you just are not going to find it in there. Those are for the traditional anniversary presents, and you really need to learn to stay away from them.
First off, traditional anniversary presents are tacky, and boring to the point of uninspired. Those magazines you flip through are designed to have simple gifts, for the simple giver. They could blindly pick something out, give the gift, and move on with their hum drum lives.
If this is you, then here are a few reason why you need to learn to stay away from traditional anniversary presents:
– it might be re-gifted. You might even get it back. I’ve seen it happen, so don’t say it won’t happen to you.
– getting the pained look of fake joy on their faces as they think of how to get rid of this thing as fast as possible.
– finding it in the garbage, and either having to ask them about it, or knowing it’s there, and leaving it at that.
– asking them about how they liked the gift, either a bizarre story about how it was lost or borken, or how they love using it, and then telling you a story about it, and you realize they don’t even remember what you got them.
Those are only 4 possibilities on what might happen if you try to give them something from a cold, lifeless book. Didn’t you ever wish someone else would find something unique for you? I know you do, I feel the same way. Why would they, if you won’t? That is the question you really have to ask yourself.
So now that you’ve learned to stay away from traditional anniversary presents, and to buy only unique anniversary gifts, the next thing you need to know is where to find them. That’s easy, look for a professionally, hand crafted, artisan product. You will not find anything more unique anywhere else. Since it is handcrafted, it can never really, truly be replicated. Think about it, wouldn’t you want a unique gift?
