If you are really looking for something unique for your partner then why not come up with a theme for your present. You could continue this theme every year by coming up with something different each time.  This could be something as simple as choosing a particular colour or perhaps a material to make the present from.

Be romantic

Most importantly choose something that shows how much you know them and how much they mean to you. If this is your first wedding anniversary and you have completed 365 days as a married couple we’re sure that you will want to choose something romantic that will leave a lasting impression on your partner and be something that will be treasured for years to come.

If you are trying to look for a gift for a couple, show them you care by choosing something that you know will mean a lot to them. Think about their interests, if they both love travelling for example you could get them a weekend away together or you could even get them a map so that they can mark each country that they have visited. This will be a great gift that they can use for years to come and a great keepsake.

If you are creative, then another great way to show your friends that you care and make sure that your anniversary gift is unique is to make something special yourself. You could choose to make a painting or drawing of the couple or perhaps make something like a piece of artwork that would be able to be kept in their house. Take a look at a graphic design bundles site for some suggestions. If the couple that you are buying for like modern gifts then choose something that is practical and that they can use too.

When choosing an anniversary gift for a modern couple just remember to think outside of the box and be creative. There are gifts for a range of budgets, from something as simple as a painting of their wedding venue, to something more expensive, such as a weekend stay in London with a rooftop date.

Personalised custom framed song

This is a very unique gift that can be personalised with the lyrics of the song that the couple chose for their first dance, or even the song that the bride walked down the aisle to.

Folded book art

This is a beautiful gift for couples who love books and literature. The pages of the book are folded to display either a word or a shape such as a heart. This is completely unique as each one will be different.

Hand painted family portrait

This is a lovely idea for a modern couple and will be very unique as it is hand painted and individual to the artist who is creating it. This would be lovely for them to keep and add to it as their family grows over time too.
