    So our one year anniversary is soon and I'm wondering what to get him. I've already given him a shirt, photo album, wallet and other stuff for birthdays and Christmases and I want something out of the ordinary. I was thinking about adding photos to our photo album for him, getting him this desktop r2d2 Hoover he's dying for 😋 and maybe a photo of us with an engraved frame but I feel like that's a bit boring and I want something that'll really move him. Any ideas (links would also be really helpful)? Thank you

    Well someone who is hopeless romantic, " gifts " that are paid for aren't worth as much as if it was made by the person with special date or something.
    At one year anniversary, I'd plan a secert plan for the day... like maybe breakfast in bed or when woken up make something thats his favorite... or something to try that you know he'll like (aka. ask but don't say your going to make just say... just wondering) go out for a day like a special date, dinner out and lunch just you two... having friends with would ruin it.

    If you/the occasion doen't move him then you're doing something wrong (that OTT anniversary offerings can't compensate for)

    If, however, you want to really really move him, then consider a personal gesture that has particular relevance to him, and your relationship. It could be linked to a place, and a favoured activity, and medium e.g. I might take a girlfriend to the place we first met/had our most memorable early date, do something romantic like take a rowing boat out on a river/lake with a bottle of bubbly and some tunes, and maybe have some personalised poetry to hand

    That said, I am male, and the general expectation is that the male will make the most romantic gestures :dancing:
