The more you know someone, the harder it can be to pick a gift you know they’ll be obsessed with. If your anniversary is coming up and you’re still stumped as to what to get your picky (but lovable!) significant other, check out this list for some gift ideas he’ll love—from the most functional, useful objects to some sillier picks.
1. A Personalized Wallet
Has your SO been using the same tattered wallet since high school? If it’s time for an upgrade, a wallet is a functional, yet thoughtful, gift. Engrave this simple brown leather one with a message that means a lot to both of you. It will fit easily in his pocket and bonus: He’ll think of you every time he goes to pay.
2. A Stylish Watch
For the guy who’s always complaining about how often he checks his phone, a watch is just the thing. This black and metallic one looks a million bucks, but is totally affordable. He’ll love showing it off and it’ll dramatically reduce his screen time, too. Everybody wins!
3. A Leather Pen Holder
For the man who can never find a pencil when he needs one and is always stepping on loose pen caps, go for a sleek leather desk organizer. He can use it for his calculator, phone, business cards, and basically anything that’s lying around and in his way when he’s working from home. It will make his life easier and look super elegant on his desktop. Made from leather and lint, it will also last him ages.
4. A Waffle Maker
Drop him a hint with this gift that benefits you both. With this state-of-the-art waffle maker, you can make each other a delicious breakfast on weekends, special occasions, or days when you’re not feeling so hot. It’s equipped with nonstick baking plates and makes four waffles at a time. Now all that’s left to do is get creative with the toppings.
5. A Floor-Cleaning Robot
A cleaning robot makes the ideal gift for a man who loves gadgets and hates mess. This one is USB charging, compact, and effective. It’s also great at getting into those hard-to-reach corners. Thanks to this nifty little machine cleaning your floors automatically, your SO will have more time to catch up on your favorite series with you.
6. A Book of Dad Jokes
If your SO’s sense of humor isn’t exactly the most sophisticated (but he still makes you laugh), he’ll love this book of dad jokes full of witticisms to add to his repertoire. All the jokes are hilarious for fans of puns and other dad-worthy one-liners, and they’re all family-friendly so you can get the kids in your family involved with the fun too. Tears of laughter guaranteed.
7. A Massage Pillow
We all get stressed sometimes. For a man who’s been dealing with a lot lately, a shiatsu massage pillow will help release the tension. This affordable massager targets his shoulders, back, and feet with heat-activated rotating nodes. If you’re lucky, you might even get to borrow it.
With some ideas to get you started, buying anniversary gifts for him has never been easier. Take your pick, then wrap it up in a pretty and original way and you’re all set! Happy anniversary, you two.
