Unique and Inexpensive Anniversary Gift Ideas

Unique and Inexpensive Anniversary Gift Ideas

When it comes to the perfect anniversary gift, there are many options and it can be difficult to narrow down what your partner will enjoy. You want to get something that is unique, memorable, and won't break the bank. Here are some inexpensive anniversary gift ideas that will show your loved one how much they mean to you while still being affordable:

A photo book.

A photo book is a great way to share your photos with friends and family. You can make a photo book on Shutterfly, Blurb, or Snapfish. If you're looking for something more personalized than just uploading your photos onto one of these sites, there are also services like Picaboo that allow you to create an actual physical copy of your book!

A good time to make a photo book is when there's an event in your life worth commemorating--like an anniversary or birthday. This way, when people look back at those times years later (or even months later), they will remember all the good times they had with each other during that period.

A personalized necklace.

A personalized necklace is a great gift for your partner. You can get one at a local jewelry store or order one online. Personalizing a chain is as simple as engraving their name on it! This will make the necklace extra special and unique.

If you want to ensure that your partner knows how much they mean to you, this is an inexpensive anniversary gift idea worth considering!

A special dinner at a restaurant you've always wanted to try.

A special dinner at a restaurant you've always wanted to try.

If you've been together for a while, chances are some restaurants have always sounded appealing but never made it onto your list of places to go. Go ahead and cross one off--make it a special night by going to a restaurant you have always wanted to try! This can be especially fun if you go somewhere that has great food but isn't too expensive (or vice versa). You'll get to try something new without breaking the bank or feeling like every penny was spent on dinner alone.

An intimate couples massage.

Give your partner an intimate couples massage.

Massages are great for stress relief and can be very romantic, so it's no surprise that they're one of the most popular anniversary gifts. You can get a massage from professionals or your partner, but if you want something unique (and don't mind getting a little messy), consider giving each other massages with paintbrushes instead of hands! If this sounds too far out there for you, consider trying different kinds of lotion or oils as part of your routine instead--the results will be just as relaxing without being quite so messy!

A memorable trip to somewhere you've always wanted to visit together.


  • What do you want to do?

  • How long should we stay?

  • How much will it cost?

  • How do we get there? (Consider booking flights with miles if it's a plane ride.)

This is one of my favorite anniversary gift ideas because there is so much room for creativity. You could go anywhere from a weekend trip in another city nearby or even across the country, all the way up until something like going on an around-the-world tour! It's also surprisingly affordable--if your partner has been talking about wanting to go somewhere specific but hasn't had the chance yet (like Paris), this would make an excellent surprise anniversary present!

A romantic evening at home, with wine and a movie you love.

If you're looking for a unique and inexpensive anniversary gift, consider making it a special night at home with your partner.

This can be done in many ways--with a movie or TV show you love, music and dancing, or even a nice meal with some wine. The important thing is to make it something special!

Making time for one another is the best gift for an anniversary or any occasion!

The best gift you can give to your partner is your time. Time spent together, laughing and talking, enjoying each other's company, is one of the most precious gifts in life.

Sometimes you may feel like there are not enough hours in the day to spend with each other because of work or school commitments or simply because life gets busy sometimes! However, we must make time for one another because there are no guarantees about tomorrow, so make every moment count!


I hope this list has given you some ideas for creating a memorable and unique anniversary for your partner. Remember, the most important part of any gift is that it comes from the heart--and if you're willing to put in some time and effort, there's no limit to what kind of gifts can be made!
