It is often said that “it is the thought that counts” and a homemade gift is definitely a way to show your affectionate side without burning a hole in your
pocket. A unique gift with a personal touch is a perfect way to mark the occasion. Homemade sentimental gift ideas are a fantastic way to save money and endear you to your partner at the same time !
Is the gift for a friend or family member? Then examples include personalised anniversary cards, a hamper with all their favourite food and drink or even a scrapbook or photo album with all your precious memories together.
If you’re looking to “wow” your husband or wife then these homemade ideas will go a long way to doing exactly that. Anniversaries are occasions to celebrate your wedding day and your relationship together so the key is romance. Be spontaneous and make it a night to remember. Spending some special time together can be precious so why not cook dinner, and have a romantic night in.
Don’t overwhelm yourself with pressure to make a perfect present. If you aren’t creative then make something simple that just brings back memories of a special occasion. Perfection is not expected as it is the sentimental value that is important.
Remember you can relate the anniversary year to the traditional gift for that year. This will give you a theme and make building anniversary gifts much easier.
