Congratulations, you've passed the first decade milestone! If you're at the 10 year anniversary you may want to think about planning a small trip together. It can be just a weekend or a couple weeks in an exotic location. You might now want to check on our Anniversary table to see what the traditional gifts are for each year.
Advice – Wife of 10+ years gift
- Do not give her any sort of appliance. Even if she has been saying she needs a new iron, or coffee maker etc. Just go out and get her one on a normal day (you'll even score points for this). But, under no circumstance, should it be given on a special occasion!
- By now you should know what she likes. If possible keep a list during the year (tuck it away on your phone). When she mentions something she likes or would like to do, write it down!
- Try to find out her favourite clothing store. When in doubt, give her a gift certificate to that store. It shows you know what she likes, but lets her pick out what she thinks is best.
Ideas – Wife of 10+ years gift
- Perfume – see our page on advice on which one to purchase
- Gift card – preferably to her favourite store. If it's a department store, chose a higher end one.
- Plan a surprise getaway trip somewhere:
- A hotel getaway in your own city
- A hotel getaway in a place that you can drive to in a day
- A hotel getaway in a place that is a short plane ride (no one wants to do a grueling long haul flight)
