Unconventional Anniversary Gift Ideas

Anniversary gift ideas websites are plenty and most of them will give you “anniversary gift ideas for him” and “anniversary gift ideas for her”. Great effort was put in those websites by their webmasters and they deserve recognition for that.

In this article, though, you’ll learn more about gift ideas that both of you can share and enjoy in a way that get’s you to express your love to each other in new ways and more frequently. Here are some of the ideas and you can come up with your own in the light of the concept of sharing after you finish reading this article to the end.

1. Learn something new together:

This approach is about learning something fun that both of you can enjoy together. An example could be learning how to dance, how to play a piano, how to build a website, how to swim, how to play chess, a new language… etc.

The dancing example is the best to show the sharing concept for two reasons:

  1. There are so many dances that I am sure your spouse will be messing on at least one of them that you can learn together.
  2. To learn how to dance you’ll need a partner, and this is how you two can enjoy this gift together while learning and afterwords.

Although it is more fun this way, it also could be only your spouse who needs to learn that new thing, like a new language to help with their job hunt. Learning it together can also be fun and show how much you care about his/her career. Sharing this learning process also brings to your school dating adventure atmosphere and can spice up your intimate life.

2. Subscribe

If you don’t have a gym subscription already why don’t you give yourself and your spouse a boost in the health department and subscribe for the two of you in a good gym as an anniversary gift? Maybe you can also hire a personal trainer for the two of you and go together to consult a dietitian. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you need and can enjoy a gift like this one together.

Imagine going together to the gym and being each other’s training partner.

This is a good idea if one of you needs to change his lifestyle because of some health issue. It is hard to keep a certain new lifestyle while your spouse is not with you on this new page. This could alienate you two apart on the long run. Sharing shows that you care and helps you stay connected all the time.

3. Escape together:

This is one of the most traditional anniversary gifts; to go on a vacation. The unconventional way to do it is to go on a camp (weight loss, music, dancing, how to spice up your marriage, martial arts… whatever you can think of). The idea is to be like classmates again.

This is different from the first idea. Learning something together could be online, next doors, in a community center you go to anyway… but this one you two have to become trainees in a classroom environment, with an instructor telling you what to do and how to do it for as long as you are in the camp.

I hope these ideas will help you surprise your spouse in a nice way and will help bring you both together even closer.

Happy anniversary.
