Men Love Practical Gifts
It’s a well known fact that the man in your life will prefer a gift that is practical rather than frivolous. After all men aren’t normally known for collections of knick knacks and trinkets. With that in mind consider some of the following options:
- A personalised leather wallet
- High tech watch
- An item of clothing
- A shaving kit and cologne
- A new laptop bag or briefcase
- Personalise luggage
If He’s a Bit of an Adventurer
Does your husband love adventure? Is he a bit of an adrenaline junky? There are lots of options if this applies to the man in your life. Why not sign him up for helicopter or flying lessons? Would he love to fling himself from an airplane and float gently to the ground via a tandem parachute ride? Maybe scuba diving lessons would be more up his street. He could take off for a balloon ride, or enjoy some expert tuition from a racing driver.
Is He a Bit of a Romantic?
Believe it or not, most men do have a romantic side. They might not show it very often, but it’s definitely there. Choosing a romantic gift will be a good choice. It doesn’t have to be fancy, but it must come from the heart. Write him a love letter, it was probably many moons ago that you last did this. Take him up the Thames on a riverboat cruise, while enjoying a romantic meal. If he has a favourite restaurant, book a table for two. Why not take him away for the weekend, somewhere thought provoking or new? You could consider renting a limo for the evening, and just cruise around town having a chat.
Why Not Surprise Him With a Wedding Anniversary Party?
It’s really not as complex as you might think. With a little planning and our guidance you could surprise him with a great anniversary party, attended by lots of family and friends. Here’s a few things to bear in mind……………
Casual or Formal
This is really down to you and your partner’s preferences. Do you enjoy low-key celebrations or would you prefer a more formal affair? Would your husband prefer a BBQ in the back garden, or a 3 course dining experience in a top ranking hotel?
Set a Budget
It’s a good idea to decide ahead of time whether you want to restrict your budget. It might be a significant wedding anniversary milestone, which warrants hefty expense. Or it could be a less important anniversary that calls for just a get together. If you don’t set your budget in the beginning, you could find the costs running away.
Number of Guests
This is a very important part of your party planning. Are you just going to invite close family and friends, or are you going to open up the invites to everyone you both know? Get a guest list up and running early on in the planning process, so that you have a good idea of food required and a suitable venue.
Where and When to Hold the Party
There are no restrictions as to where you can hold your party, the venue is entirely up to you, and the number of guests your planning to invite. If you’ve decided to go with a formal party then check out local hotels or restaurants that have a party room. Casual festivities can take place virtually anywhere. From your own back garden to a local village hall or meeting room.
Get the Invitations out Early
Get your invitations out early so that your guests can make sure they are available and reply in good time. You can go to the expense of getting your invitations printed by a local company, or why not make your own?
Think About Food and Entertainment
Whatever the size of your party, you’re probably going to need to think about food. If you’re planning a casual occasion, why not get your party guests to bring along their own contributions? This is often a fun and interesting way to go. If you’ve decided to hold the party in a more formal venue, then food can be provided at the location.
A formal event will require some special entertainment. Either a DJ, band or pianist, along with a professional photographer. Background music may be all that’s required if you’ve decided the party will be a casual affair.
We hope that your next wedding anniversary will be one that leaves your husband with fond memories.
