Anniversary Gifts for Him

Anniversary Gift Ideas for Him: What to Buy Your Special Guy

You know your husband better than anyone. Understanding the type of man he is, is the first step toward finding the right anniversary gifts for him.

Anniversary Gifts for Your Husband: A Spouse’s Shopping Guide

Your wedding anniversary offers you the chance to reflect on your relationship and celebrate another year of marriage. Life moves quickly. Sometimes it’s nice to press pause, even if it’s just for a day, and remember why you married your husband. The occasion can also bring some pressure, especially if you get stuck trying to find the right wedding anniversary gifts for him.

Remember, no one knows the man you married better than you do. That makes you more qualified than anyone to shop for him. Think about the type of guy he is and how he enjoys spending his time. Does he love the outdoors? Would you consider him a foodie? Is he a sports fanatic? Or is technology his thing? Once you land on a category, choosing anniversary gifts for your husband becomes much easier.

Here’s another question to consider when you’re thinking about anniversary gift ideas for him. What would your husband buy if he were shopping for himself? Any of our suggestions for your outdoorsman, foodie, sports fan or tech head can be enhanced with an American Express® Gift Card. Give your husband the freedom to pick out what he wants, online or in person, from virtually anywhere American Express Cards are accepted.

American Express Gift Cards: The Gifts that Stand Out
  • Can be used virtually anywhere in the U.S. where American Express Cards are accepted
  • Safer than cash because the funds can be replaced if lost or stolen*
  • Choose from a variety of designs appropriate for celebrating the special day

For Your Outdoorsman

Does your husband find solace in the great outdoors? If so, get him something he can use for his next hike, camping trip, fishing expedition, bike ride or boat outing. Binoculars, new sunglasses, campfire grilling tools, a hammock for the campsite, an LED headlamp, a new fishing reel or a great knife all make great anniversary gifts for him. You can also offer to join your husband on a post-anniversary camping trip and let him pick out any supplies you’ll need with his American Express Gift Card.

For Your Foodie

If the way to your man’s heart is through his stomach, you’ll find plenty of anniversary gift ideas for him at your nearest kitchen supply store or specialty food shop. How about a French press coffee maker with a selection of coffees from around the world, or a cast iron pan with an assortment of his favorite cuts of meat? There are some impressive high-tech blenders on the market that can churn out everything from hot soup to ice cream with the press of a button. And you won’t go wrong with an anniversary gift basket filled with his favorite wines and cheeses or a selection of gourmet oils, vinegars and spices. Enhance the basket with an American Express Gift Card and let him choose anything his heart (or stomach) desires.

For Your Sports Fan

If your husband loves sports and lives for his team, then a sports memorabilia store will be rife with anniversary gifts for him. Get him a signed jersey, ball, bat, glove or puck. He might also like an autographed picture of his favorite player or a framed shot of your hometown stadium. Plus, many stadiums offer special fan experiences, tours and other opportunities to get closer to the team. You also can’t go wrong with game tickets and an American Express Gift Card, which you both can use for concessions, souvenirs and dinner after the game.

For Your Tech Head

When it comes to electronics, does your husband always have to have the latest and greatest? If so, you may need to do a little pre-anniversary reconnaissance. Pay attention to conversations about upcoming product launches, or see if he’s been reading about any new gizmos and gadgets. Headphones, Bluetooth speakers and portable cell phone power banks might make nice anniversary gifts for your husband. You can also eliminate the guesswork with an American Express Gift Card. Choose a design or customize his card with his name and let your tech head pick out what he wants.

Now you can spend some time thinking about what he’s going to get you. Congratulations on your anniversary.
