Almost two years have passed since you both said “I do” and now your 2nd wedding anniversary is coming up, and as so many times before on occasions that etiquette requires the exchanging of gifts, you get stuck in a gift tunnel vision. An example is the spouse who buys flowers for every birthday, anniversary or holiday. Now don’t get me wrong, flowers are great, and so is filet mignon but I don’t want it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Get the point? Mix it up, put a little thought into it. It’s not as hard as you might think and you might even have fun, your spouse will appreciate a gift that shows you put some thought and consideration into its purchase.
A flower bouquet is a lovely gift for a couple celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary. Pro Flowers has a beautiful anniversary gift ideas for husband Bouquet. It starts at $49.99. They also have a Hugs & Kisses bouquet that starts at $69.99. I like this one because it has 20 blue irises and 20 red tulips. I suggest having the bouquet shipped to you and then adding a gift card or gift certificate for dinner at a favorite restaurant. Once the flowers are wilting, they can be dried and made into potpourri so the gift can be remembered even longer.
These make perfect ruby wedding anniversary gifts.

The Personalized Music Frame is my personal favorite 45th wedding anniversary gift on this site. It is a clear acrylic frame that is free standing. It has a beautiful watercolor on it that features blue flowers. There is a poem that is written on it. If you do not like the poem, you do have the option of writing your own poem. You also get to choose one of 13 songs to further personalize the gift. It is $49.99 if you use their poem or $59.99 if you write your own poem.
The traditional gift ideas for your seventh anniversary are wool and copper. We’ll take wool first. Wool is common in many types of clothing. Probably the most common type of garment that is made of wool is the sweater. And guys, we all know how great ladies look in a nice sweater. In case you think not, just take a good look at Lana Turner in one of her famous sweaters. Yes, your wife will absolutely love a nice warm woolly sweater, especially when it comes to those cold winter months. And, if your anniversary actually comes during one of those cold winter months, then the sweater is an absolutely perfect gift. Of course, ladies, men also look great in sweaters so no reason you can’t get your husband one as well.
How about a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant? Many couples like to go out to eat verses cooking. They would love nothing more then to enjoy a romantic free dinner at their favorite place to eat. Perhaps you can have them set up a special area with flowers and candles, especially if this is for their anniversary or a wedding gift.
Women tend to want something romantic that is either personal or expensive. Men, on the other hand, don’t usually go for the deeply romantic thing. In fact, most men have trouble understanding what is so important about romance for women. However, anniversaries are an inherently romantic time. Reconciling men and anniversaries when it comes to gift giving is tricky.
Finding the right gift for your loved one always requires painstaking effort, especially if you are beholden to the idea of perfection, if you give gifts to grant want-wishes (instead of need-wishes), or if you fit a person into a gift idea (rather than the other way around). Yet, you can make the quest less difficult and less time-consuming for you by avoiding the top three causes of difficulty in finding the perfect gift for any recipient.
