Unique Gifts For Your Girlfriend

While she is sure to cherish her 1st anniversary letter a gift never hurts.  Our advice is don’t go too crazy.  You want to show your girlfriend you care about her and are in the relationship for the foreseeable future, but if you too big too soon you may be setting yourself up for trouble down the road. 

Being thoughtful on your anniversary is important, but you also don’t want to set yourself up to have to top yourself year after year.  Keep it simple, sweet and thoughtful. 

Try and think of something small to go with your letter.  What she she pointed out at the store recently that she said she wanted, a candy, a shirt, or maybe even nail polish.

She will be touched that you remembered and were paying attention regardless of the price tag.  It’s the little things that count the most and that is true even on your anniversary.

  • You always bring a smile to my face. You’re truly the best woman a man could ever ask for… I don’t know what I did to be this lucky. Happy anniversary!  
  • There simply isn’t any word that could appropriately express my feelings for you… so I will just settle with ‘I love you’. Happy anniversary, sweetie! 
  • No matter where this life brings me, having a wonderful woman like you by my side gives me the courage to face anything. The feeling you give me is just so special. Happy anniversary, darling. 
  • On this special day, let me shower you with words of love and appreciation. You are the most beautiful woman I know and thank you for being so amazing to me. All I want right now is to caress your little body in my arms. 
  • Happy anniversary! I want you to know that your beauty, grace, and intelligence constantly inspire me. Please never change who you are… you are completely perfect.

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering.

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.

Oh I swear to you, I’ll be there for you. This is not a drive by.
