What is the best gift to give my wife on the first wedding anniversary ?

Date: 17 Feb 2016    Group: Family & Life    Category: Marriage   

Unfortunately I am unable to take my wife outside on first marriage anniversary because of work. But I can order something online to gift her. Anything that can get faster and pleasant or which she can use it regularly or daily use should be good. Can you list some memorable gifts?

You did not marry her asking opinion from online forum. Then why should you ask opinion for a gift of love to your wife?
The same or more love and affection to her than that existed on the marriage day- is the best gift you can give her. The only point is how you will make her know that.

She has not married a virtual husband. She needs your real presence and proximity to her on this special day. She will be more happy if you can take that day off from work and be with her all day, reminiscing all that happened after you met first and how you still feel for her proximity and affection.

A true wife (and husband too) do not mind costly gifts more than the sincere affection, loyalty and sense of togetherness.
Do one need a classroom lesson on sincere love and affection? It is there in the hearts-of both partners.

Best Wishes for a nice celebration of togetherness.

I truly supports the views imposed by Venki sir.
The real love must be expressed in real by being together spending quality time with each other. This cannot be replaced by any other expensive gift.

Still if you want to give her some gift, you can choose anything of her interest like- Saree- if she loves to wear that, a fancy dress, a gown or any other dress of her taste.
You can give her perfumes, handbag, a new mobile, etc.

Actually final choice will be yours because you only know her closely and we don't.

The first wedding anniversary is special for every couple. I do not believe in the recipe of just showering love and affection as proof of love – definitely not when it's your first wedding anniversary. You can keep that for later, when you've been married 30-40 years. Now is the time to splurge and spoil your wife. Every wife deserves that something extra from her husband on their first wedding anniversary.

There is a lot that you can do to make her feel special.
• Surprise her by taking the day off
• Spend the day doing things together – you can take her out for a movie, plan a picnic, go out for dinner or just be at home doing things together
• Order a cake or flowers to be delivered at midnight
• Order food online – make sure to order her favourite dishes and have a romantic meal at home
• Keep little love notes/cards/gifts around the house for her to find – for example keep something inside the jar where tea leaves are stored. She'll find it when making tea

If you want to gift her something that she can always use the best option would be a piece of jewellery. Diamond jewellery is quite affordable these days and is also available online. Make sure you shop at a reputed online store. You can check BlueStone for its affordable jewellery. You can choose from the following jewellery in diamonds and other precious and semi-precious stones like ruby, emerald, pearl, amethyst, coral etc
• Pendant
• Ear studs
• Finger ring
• Bracelet
• Nose pin

Alternatively, you can buy her something in gold –
• Chain
• Bangles
• Pendant
• Ear studs
• Nose pin

If gold and diamond are beyond your budget you can get her a pair of silver anklets.

Some jewellers offer saving schemes where customers deposit a sum every month and purchase gold at the end of 11 months. The benefit of these schemes can be varied. Some stores will sell jewellery without wastage and making charges at the end of the term. Others give a bonus equal to the sum you deposit each month. You can opt for one such scheme in her name.

You can buy her a hair dryer, if she doesn't have one or a facial massager. However, don't buy her a kitchen appliance. That's a big NO.

You can buy her a beauty treatment package at a leading parlour, where she can be pampered and groomed. You can also buy her branded beauty products from VLCC or Kaya – these can be ordered online.

Whatever you gift her keep her preference in mind.

You can consider buying her 'Golden Harvest' scheme of Tanishq which is considered as one of the best jewelry Purchase Schemes. Under this scheme , you will have to pay minimum Rs. 2000 per month for 10 months. From the end of 10th month, the investor become eligible for a special discount which may vary from 55% to 75% of the fixed installment. However this scheme will work for next anniversary. So buying a diamond jewelry for first anniversary and subscribing to the above mentioned scheme for all future anniversaries may be a wonderful idea.

Don't feel unlucky since you cannot take her outside on the first anniversary. The only way to please her on this auspicious moment is to identify her attitude and the presentation should match her willingness.
There are innumerable ways to celebrate the first anniversary. Order the food items with a popuar hotel in your locality and make sure that you are always available on that day to celebrate the day. You should be a good listener to her proposal and if she asks you to offer an article which is within your means such as sarees, jwelleries or some fancy dresses, don't make a delay in fulfilling the same. Even you can extend the proposals considering your financial constraint but before that, you have to take her into confidence. Your proposals would be acceptable to her as there is intimate bond of love and trust.
However, there are certain areas which you can consider as a way of presentation. To present the Key of a Bank - locker of any nationalised Bank would be a best presentation for her provided she agrees to the same. If she is having any flair for further studies, enrol her for the same course. This would enhance her esteem.

I think by now you must have known what she likes and hates. So you can make a list of things and find what you can get. Also make sure you know some of her todo list or bucket list. That way you can learn how to choose the gift for her. For example if she wants to take vacation then you can make sure you gift her some things related to that. I guess most of the gifts would definitely something you can guess from her likes and interests. You should start thinking in this direction and you'll find the right gift. Other than that you can buy clothing, some online shopping voucher or some other similar gift.
