Anniversary Gift Guide: Just for Her

  1. Wedding Album Rival

    Remember how in love (um, obsessed) she was with your wedding album? Give her another OCD treat by creating a photo book of your memories together. Gather pictures from every phase of your relationship -- dating, engaged, and newly married -- and add captions to bring to life (again) all of the silly and special moments you’ve shared. Set it on the coffee table where all of her friends can see it and you’ll get brownie points for next year.

    PhotoBook from My Publisher, from $30
  2. A Seat for Your Sweetie

    Sweep her off her feet every evening with this charming high-back seat from Anthropologie. The chair’s design is traditional, but the fabric pattern is modern -- bursting with giant scarlet dahlias. Okay, we know this is a serious splurge, but a girl can dream, right? Think of it as an anniversary gift for the next 20 years.

  3. Branch Out

    Jewelry boxes do a great job of storing all of her beloved baubles, but the design of most jewelry boxes can be a little too, well, precious. This branch stand makes a decorative statement -- all while keeping her necklaces and rings accessible on harried weekday mornings.

  4. Signature Scent

    Women are drawn to certain scents -- say, citrus for some and florals for others. Rather than picking up an already fab fragrance from a local department store counter, buy her the experience of creating her own signature scent. Fragrance guru Jo Malone’s shop makes it possible to combine and layer scents to create something really unique.

  5. Mix It Up

    Some women can be downright cultish when it comes to their KitchenAid mixers. What divides KitchenAid fanatics is the choice of color -- red and white are classics, but this baby blue model makes a very vintage statement. But don’t take our word for it -- scope out your own home for your wife’s favorite accent color. From Green Apple to Majestic Yellow, KitchenAid has a color for every culinary personality. Not only is it pretty to look at, you might get some cupcakes out of the deal too!

  6. Everyday Luxury

    Ever slid into bed at a high-end hotel and wondered what it was that made it feel so good? It could've been the mattress, but we venture to guess that the sheets were pretty special too. Give her (and yourself) the gift of luxuriant sleep with these organic cotton sheets from Ralph Lauren. And, hey, making the bed every once in awhile wouldn’t hurt either!

  7. Silence Barking Dogs

    Fictional New Yorker Carrie Bradshaw was all over her stilettos, but ask any New York man how he feels about Manolos and Jimmy Choos. The answer may surprise you: While heels are undeniably sexy, most men are sick of waiting for us as we hobble along the streets on rickety spikes. If you’re tired of hearing her complain about her aching feet, give her these super-soft and buttery Napa lambskin slipper flats from Sue London. They’re so comfy, even Carrie would skip the cab and walk.

    The London Slipper, $134
  8. The "It" Bag

    When it comes to gifts for women, bags are a no-brainer. When you find the right one, you’re golden. This is the “it” bag of the summer, guys -- trust us! While the bright colors are perfect for sunny days, this canvas and leather bag is laminated and designed to stand up to even the roughest autumn weather. It’s a must-have for the modern married girl, just like yours.

    Orla Kiely Multi Stem Holdall, $185
  9. Flower Power

    Even the most well-meaning guys can slip on the anniversary gift. You can’t go wrong with a simple but gorgeous bouquet, available via FedEx next-day delivery.

    ProFlowers, from $30
  10. Send Her Off in Style

    There's nothing more annoying than trying to identify your nondescript black suitcase among the lookalikes on the baggage carousel. Send her off in style (and save her an airport headache) with this vibrant, preppy-chic carry-on from Toss Designs.


    Nantucket carry-on luggage, $225
