The­mat­ic gifts

What to give a guy for a year of relationship?

A year of rela­tion­ship is a decent amount of time. Many girls are at a loss as to what to give their loved one for the first anniver­sary, because this is a seri­ous occa­sion. For­tu­nate­ly, today on the shelves you can see a lot of dif­fer­ent prod­ucts that are per­fect for a pre­sen­ta­tion, but choos­ing the best and most suc­cess­ful option can be dif­fi­cult.

Best gift options

What to give a guy for 1 year of rela­tion­ship — many young ladies ask this ques­tion. In some cas­es, choos­ing a present is easy and sim­ple, but it hap­pens that it is very dif­fi­cult to pick up some­thing spe­cif­ic. Con­sid­er in detail the most suit­able ideas.

romantic dinner

A won­der­ful gift for a loved one on the anniver­sary of a rela­tion­ship is a roman­tic din­ner. Such a solu­tion is a win-win. If you decide to please the guy with such a clas­sic, but non-stan­dard present, then you should pre­pare every­thing ll. You will need to use all your culi­nary skills to pre­pare deli­cious treats for the table. It is advis­able to present to a young per­son pre­cise­ly his favorite dish­es, or turn to the prepa­ra­tion of var­i­ous delights.

If a roman­tic din­ner is held not in a chic restau­rant, but at home, then it is worth dec­o­rat­ing the inte­ri­or in advance in an appro­pri­ate way:

  • light scent­ed can­dles;
  • dim the lights a lit­tle to cre­ate a more roman­tic atmos­phere;
  • choose a beau­ti­ful table­cloth for the table, for exam­ple, a snow-white ver­sion that cre­ates the effect of an expen­sive estab­lish­ment.

You should take advan­tage of the allur­ing aro­ma of per­fume that your young man has always liked. Put on a sexy evening dress and be sure to take care of beau­ti­ful lin­gerie. With a prop­er­ly formed atmos­phere and nice con­ver­sa­tions, the guy will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate the efforts of his beloved.

Such roman­tic ideas are very pop­u­lar. Some arrange a sim­i­lar din­ner not at home, but, for exam­ple, on the roof. Of course, such a deci­sion in exe­cu­tion is quite dif­fi­cult, but emo­tions and impres­sions will be enough.


If on the anniver­sary of your acquain­tance you do not want to give your loved one some­thing stan­dard and hack­neyed, then you should turn to more orig­i­nal and unusu­al solu­tions. Give the young man a pleas­ant sur­prise.

A good and cre­ative gift is a trea­sure hunt. To do this, you need to take the gift you bought for your set­heart and hide it ll. After that, you will need to place sev­er­al dif­fer­ent clues that will lead the guy step by step to the place where his gift is hid­den. If you live togeth­er, then the first clue should be placed on the floor — near the thresh­old. As soon as a young man returns from work, this will be the first thing he notices.

If you have the oppor­tu­ni­ty and desire, you can make such a sur­prise that will not be lim­it­ed to your home. To do this, it will be nec­es­sary to try hard, for exam­ple, to per­suade dif­fer­ent peo­ple — a watch­man, a jan­i­tor, a store sell­er. In this case, the search will be more inter­est­ing and com­plex.

The orig­i­nal present is a flash mob. If you have many good friends, then they will need to be per­suad­ed first. So it will turn out to arrange a very bright and cre­ative sur­prise for an unsus­pect­ing young man. For exam­ple, you can make it so that sud­den­ly the crowd around starts danc­ing and giv­ing gifts, open­ing beau­ti­ful posters.

Of course, you can think of a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent flash mob. This is where the fan­ta­sy needs to be let loose.

An inter­est­ing and cre­ative anniver­sary gift — a joint para­chute jump. Of course, here it is nec­es­sary to take into account your phys­i­cal fit­ness. There is an eas­i­er option — hot air bal­loon­ing. This is a very roman­tic deci­sion. On such an unusu­al trip, it is worth tak­ing a cam­era and a bot­tle of cham­pagne with you. Such a present will sure­ly impress the young man and give only pos­i­tive emo­tions.

An extra­or­di­nary gift that a guy will def­i­nite­ly not expect from you is a cer­tifi­cate for attend­ing an air rifle shoot­ing mas­ter class. Can arrange spon­ta­neous and unex­pect­ed hike in the for­est with tents and fish­ing rods. The ide­al solu­tion is a tick­et to an inter­est­ing and unusu­al place or a hitch­hik­ing trip.

But it must be borne in mind that the last indi­cat­ed pre­sen­ta­tions are unlike­ly to suit a real home­body.

You can ride quad bikes togeth­er. A young extreme man will def­i­nite­ly appre­ci­ate such a present.

A fun­ny and extra­or­di­nary gift is a set of shorts with fun­ny pic­tures or inscrip­tions. On guys, these things look incom­pa­ra­ble. Of course, such a present can only be giv­en to young peo­ple with an appro­pri­ate sense of humor, oth­er­wise your gift may be mis­un­der­stood.

You can give the guy a quadro­copter. Such things are of inter­est to many men. If ear­li­er every­one want­ed a radio-con­trolled air­plane, today the quadro­copter with a cam­era installed on it has occu­pied the first niche in pop­u­lar­i­ty. With such a device, you can shoot amaz­ing videos from a bird’s eye view.

Usefulness and practicality

On the first anniver­sary of the rela­tion­ship, you can give the gen­tle­man not only unusu­al, fun­ny and cre­ative gifts. It is per­mis­si­ble to hand over a use­ful, prac­ti­cal thing.

Most men val­ue func­tion­al­i­ty. Use­ful sur­pris­es please no less than fun­ny and roman­tic presents. In order to choose the most suit­able prac­ti­cal present for your loved one, it is impor­tant to take into account the scope of his activ­i­ties, inter­ests and hob­bies. The clas­sic use­ful and win-win gifts are the fol­low­ing things, with­out which you sim­ply can­not do with­out in every­day life:

  • styl­ish leather wal­let;
  • reli­able lit­tle key hold­er;
  • a set of tools (the beloved has long want­ed to acquire them).

It is per­mis­si­ble for a busi­ness gen­tle­man work­ing in an office to present a design­er and com­fort­able diary (some peo­ple pre­fer to use such things rather than elec­tron­ic media) or a sol­id leather brief­case for doc­u­ments. These presents do not look cute and roman­tic, but they rarely lie in the clos­et, acquir­ing dusty deposits.

If a young man is addict­ed to tech­nol­o­gy and pas­sion­ate­ly loves com­put­ers, then he should be giv­en a brand new gam­ing mouse, a com­fort­able key­board, or a pad with a lap­top cool­er. Could be a good present case for his smart­phone or a small MP3 play­er. If you are dat­ing a real radio ama­teur, then tra­di­tion­al radio com­mu­ni­ca­tion devices or mod­ern walkie-talkie might sur­prise him.

If your lover has a car, then you can give him a very use­ful and nec­es­sary things such as a video recorder, a high-qual­i­ty nav­i­ga­tor, a small vac­u­um clean­er (they are very con­ve­nient to clean the inte­ri­or). If a guy likes to trav­el on the roads, then a ther­mos, a car / inte­ri­or clean­ing kit will be ide­al solu­tions for him.

If you know ll the pref­er­ences of your loved one in clothes, and also know his size, then you can choose a beau­ti­ful and respectable suit, a light T‑shirt with a bright print, a warm and soft dress­ing gown, del­i­cate win­ter gloves. Such things will def­i­nite­ly not gath­er dust in the clos­et and will be very use­ful.

If your cho­sen one is a sports fan, then pick­ing up a gift for his anniver­sary is not dif­fi­cult. Can be giv­en to an ath­lete suit­able equip­ment, sports acces­sories (for exam­ple, it can be a bag for sports equip­ment or com­fort­able sneak­ers — there are a lot of options). It will turn out to sur­prise your beloved with a sub­scrip­tion to a rock climb­ing course.

But here you should choose a prac­ti­cal and nec­es­sary gift, with­out hint­ing at the desire to live togeth­er or get mar­ried. These sur­pris­es can scare and unpleas­ant­ly excite a guy. You should not give too sim­ple house­hold items such as kitchen uten­sils or shor / shav­ing foam.

Commemorative present

A com­mem­o­ra­tive gift can be a won­der­ful gift on the day of the anniver­sary. Touch­ing and radi­at­ing love, such gifts can be dif­fer­ent. Here are some of the most com­mon and rel­e­vant options.

  • Give your loved one some­thing that would remind him of your first meet­ing or anoth­er moment where you re togeth­er. For exam­ple, it could be your trip to a con­cert. Pho­tos that re tak­en on the first day of the meet­ing will do.
  • The most obvi­ous and clas­sic gift is your joint pho­to, insert­ed into a beau­ti­ful frame. From the back, you should care­ful­ly insert a cou­ple of tick­ets left over from your first trip to the cin­e­ma.
  • If you are good at knit­ting, ave ll with beads and are fond of oth­er types of needle­work, then you can make a nice mem­o­rable present for your anniver­sary with your own hands. For exam­ple, you can ave an inter­est­ing name bracelet, made in the young man’s favorite col­or.
  • A good solu­tion is a home­made col­lage with your joint pho­tos.
  • If a guy is fond of mys­ti­cism and attach­es great impor­tance to his dreams, then you should give him a home­made dream catch­er.
  • Anoth­er nom­i­nal gift is a joint tat­too. Of course, such a deci­sion should be con­sid­ered many times, so as not to be dis­ap­point­ed lat­er. If a young man likes such a present, and he agrees to go with you to the mas­ter, then it is worth dis­cussing in advance what exact­ly you will fill, and on what parts of the body.

Jelry and jels

You can give your beloved a more expen­sive and pre­sentable gift for a year of rela­tion­ship. Often, guys and grown men choose and appre­ci­ate expen­sive, pro­fes­sion­al­ly made jel­ry. If you can­not say exact­ly how your loved one feels about such gifts, then you should not rush. First, casu­al­ly ask him to under­stand whether such a present would be appro­pri­ate.

If you can’t talk, or you are afraid to give your­self away (this will spoil the sur­prise), then you should take a clos­er look at the usu­al image of a guy. If he ars a beau­ti­ful watch, cuf­flinks or a seal, then there should be no doubt — the jel­ry will be a won­der­ful present for him.

Men who are dis­tin­guished by a busi­ness mind­set will not refuse a prac­ti­cal and spec­tac­u­lar present. An expen­sive wrist­watch of a pop­u­lar brand or a brand­ed pen in a spe­cial case will be very suc­cess­ful solu­tions. Such things will demon­strate and empha­size the high sta­tus of their own­er.

When choos­ing a suit­able expen­sive jel­ry for a young man, his char­ac­ter and behav­ior should be tak­en into account. So, a socia­ble and cheer­ful guy, the soul of the com­pa­ny, should be pre­sent­ed with such an expen­sive present that will high­light his essence. It can be a non-triv­ial ring in the form of a wolf’s muz­zle, a grin­ning skull on a strap, or a fash­ion­able amulet in eth­nic motifs.

If you notice that the guy adheres more to min­i­mal­is­tic and strict deci­sions, then he should not be giv­en too col­or­ful and art­sy jel­ry with a lot of stones on his first anniver­sary. A sol­id large ring with a black dark stone or lux­u­ri­ous plat­inum cuf­flinks will do here.

What can be done with your own hands?

Home­made gifts will nev­er lose their rel­e­vance. This sur­prise can empha­size your kind atti­tude and love for a per­son. For a year of rela­tion­ship, a beloved man can be pre­sent­ed with a vari­ety of home-made presents that he will like.

  • The ide­al solu­tion in this cat­e­go­ry - deli­cious­ly pre­pared meal. You can bake a chic con­fes­sion cake, make heart-shaped cook­ies, or just treat your man to a deli­cious meat treat for din­ner.
  • It is pos­si­ble to do it by hand an orig­i­nal piece of jel­ry that he will ar with pride. For exam­ple, it can be a pret­ty pen­dant, a woven leather bracelet (a trendy item).
  • A win-win option for the first anniver­sary is a home­made knit­ted item. It can be a soft and cozy sater, large and soft mit­tens, a scarf or even a knit­ted hat. Such pre­sen­ta­tions are always rel­e­vant. Such a home­made gift would be espe­cial­ly appro­pri­ate if your anniver­sary falls on a cold win­ter.
  • A cute present for the first anniver­sary — a love note­book. You can buy it ready-made or dec­o­rate it with your own hands, dec­o­rat­ing it prop­er­ly. In this note­book, you will need to enter var­i­ous roman­tic phras­es, words, poems, con­fes­sions, var­i­ous sit­u­a­tions that sym­bol­ize your rela­tion­ship. A few gen­er­al pho­tos will be a good addi­tion to such a pre­sen­ta­tion.
  • A suit­able home­made present for a year of rela­tion­ship is a love let­ter. You need to write a let­ter to your loved one on paper. It is per­mis­si­ble to dec­o­rate it antique, make it col­ored or add a pleas­ant aro­ma. The let­ter will need to be care­ful­ly sealed in a bot­tle and sent by mail or hand­ed to a loved one at a roman­tic din­ner.
  • Hand­made soap - anoth­er won­der­ful sur­prise for a year of rela­tion­ship. You can make a prod­uct of absolute­ly any shape, col­or and smell. The spec­i­fied gift can act as an addi­tion to the main gift. When choos­ing an inter­est­ing design and aro­ma of such a thing, the main thing is to take into account the pref­er­ences of a loved one.

Selection Tips

Choose your first anniver­sary gift care­ful­ly. Sev­er­al cri­te­ria should be tak­en into account.

  • Guy’s age. Depend­ing on age, the inter­ests of most guys also change. For exam­ple, an adult man, espe­cial­ly if he occu­pies a high posi­tion, is unlike­ly to like a present with the same stuffed tat­toos. A young guy will like this deci­sion more.
  • Young per­son­’s inter­ests. Know­ing what a guy is inter­est­ed in, you can eas­i­ly pick up the per­fect anniver­sary present for him. For exam­ple, sports fans should be giv­en spe­cial sports equip­ment, and art lovers should be giv­en high-qual­i­ty oil paints and oth­er nec­es­sary acces­sories.
  • Sta­tus. The gift must cor­re­spond to the sta­tus of a young per­son. For exam­ple, a guy who aspires to climb up the cor­po­rate lad­der should be giv­en some­thing that will help and sup­port him along the way.
  • Style. If you are giv­ing a guy clothes or jel­ry, then you should con­sid­er what style he prefers. For exam­ple, lovers of sol­id things should be pre­sent­ed with the same pre­sentable and lux­u­ri­ous out­fits. If a guy likes loose and light clothes more, then he should choose a styl­ish T‑shirt or com­fort­able shorts.

What should not be given?

It is very impor­tant to know what gifts it is unde­sir­able to give a young man for an anniver­sary, so as not to make a mis­take in your choice. Con­sid­er what pre­sen­ta­tions may be inap­pro­pri­ate.

  • The main thing to con­sid­er is the rel­e­vance of your pre­sen­ta­tion.. This is where the style, pref­er­ences and inter­ests of the young man are implied. So, it makes no sense for a true ath­lete who prefers com­fort­able sport­sar to give chic plat­inum cuf­flinks.
  • When choos­ing a present for the first anniver­sary, you need to con­sid­er its cost. Do not buy an over­priced gift. If it sud­den­ly turns out that a young man’s gift is cheap­er for you, then this may con­fuse him.
  • It is unde­sir­able to give alco­holic drinks or smok­ing acces­sories. It is worth pre­sent­ing such gifts that will bring joy to a per­son and will not harm his health.
  • Do not rush to hand the young man a cute pil­low or T‑shirt with your joint pho­to. Of course, this present is very cute and charm­ing, but more often than not, such things turn out to be put away in the clos­et and col­lect­ing dust.
  • It is not rec­om­mend­ed to give home­made crum­pled leaves with “100 rea­sons for your love.” Such a deci­sion, of course, will be very set and touch­ing, but, most like­ly, the guy will sim­ply be too lazy to unfold each enclosed piece of paper with your con­fes­sions. As a result, such a present will be shelved or put on the top shelf as decor and mem­o­ry. There will be no ben­e­fit from it.
  • Do not give presents that will show your desire to mar­ry a guy or move in with him. Such things are not always per­ceived as the girl expects. Don’t be intru­sive.
