What should you give your boyfriend on your one year anniversary? watch

    I'm wondering if I should give my boyfriend something on the date when we will have been seeing each other for exactly a year, and if so what? Is this the normal thing to do? Do people usually give each other a card on their one year anniversary as well? I have no idea if he will or not, so I don't want to end up in an awkward situation if he gives me something and I don't have anything for him or the other way around. Any ideas please?

    I got him a card but then again it was a combined wedding day/anniversary card.

    Some people do give card but if you're not comfortable then don't. Simple presents are the best ones if you're not sure. Alternatively talk to your boyfriend about it.

    For my anniversary I gave my boyfriend Davidoff Cool water, a big box of chocolates and a card with a letter in telling him how much he means to me. In total it cost me all about £40. The most I had ever spent on anyone.
    Turned out he didn't get me anything and I had to act cool and play it off. Then the next day he got me a perfume set only, which was obvious that he went the evening before.
    But yeah I suggest a card, something personalised maybe? Is he into football, get him a football shirt with his name on the back? Aftershave? xx

    For our one year, we did a combined birthday/anniversary gift my birthday is three days after our anniversary and his is three weeks after!
    He got me:
    Vicktor and Rolph BonBon Perfume
    Pandora Koala Charm
    Pandora Bow Ring
    Vivienne Westwood Purse
    Chocolate/Cake/Cupcake
    Day trip to London

    I got him:
    Superdry Jumper
    Armarni Nuit aftershave
    3 Supercar Sports Circuit Experience Day
    Armani Leather Bracelet
    Koala Teddybear
    My favourite book

    Admittedly, we did go all out but that's just us, go for something simple if you're not too sure if it's going to be reciprocated or if you think it might be then you could always ask if there's anything he wants?

    Talk to him about it! We just go out for a meal usually, maybe watch afilm/visit a city we like. We dont bother with cards and presents, we just share the cost of the day out.

    It doesn't have to cost that much since it's only 1 year. A safe option would be a ps4 if he doesn't have one already.

    Beat me to it. :teehee:

    For our anniversary, me and my boyfriend went out to the dog races, rather than buying one another material gifts. That said, we tend to go 'all out' for birthdays / Christmas etc. I usually buy him things he has expressed interest in, since he has a number of hobbies, as he does for me. Is naice, yo.

    I gave him an iPod touch 'cos his mp3 player was seriously destroyed. And a box of 365 little papers folded up, and each paper contained one reason why I loved him Hand-made.

    I think I went OTT... but I can't give normal gifts.

    Since then, I've tended to go for more 'events'-y gifts i.e. trips to theatres and nice meals I took him to a restaurant called Alimentum for our 2nd year anniversary, for example (plus a smaller material gift just as a keep-sake)
