Outstanding Last-Minute Wedding Anniversary Ideas
So, it’s happened. You left your anniversary gift to the last minute. We’ve all been there – but don’t worry. The internet is at your disposal, and there are so many options out there – you just need to know where and what to look for.
P.S this article does include affiliate links. This means that if you do end up buying an item from one of our links, we will earn a small commission. This comes at no extra cost to you and does not mean that we don’t totally love the item we’re recommending.
Also, while we’re breaking it up into “his” and “hers” sections, there’s absolutely nothing that prevents these gifts from being totally gender-neutral. So, don’t feel like you can’t get her a set of glasses or him a cute Canvas photo! Even the “Mr and Mr” gifts also come in “Mrs and Mrs” versions.
Last-Minute Anniversary Ideas for Him
From personalized wine glasses to the sweetest card, these gifts make perfect last-minute anniversary ideas for him!
1. Personalized Wine Glasses
Do you and your partner love a drink after a long day? Alcoholic or not, these wine glasses are still perfect home ware gifts.
With “Together forever” and “This Is Us” printed on them, they will certainly put a smile on your partner’s face on your anniversary.
Obviously, because these are personalized they cannot be super last-minute. However, with them being so unique, your other half will never suspect that you left this to the last minute.
2. Mr and Mr. Coffee mugs
Do you have coffee together every morning? Or a cup of tea when you get home? This coffee mug set will give you quality bonding time in the morning. You can look down on these mugs, and just remember how special your relationship is, and how special you are as a couple.
P.S they’re also pretty big mugs, which is just perfect for all those who need a big cup of Joe in the morning.
3. Simpsons portrait
This is a little bit more of a niche gift, for those who love The Simpsons. This would make a really wonderful gift.
Top tip: always look into hobbies and interests when you’re shopping last minute. This makes the gift rather easy to choose but also is super thoughtful and appear well-thought-out. They never have to know that it’s a last-minute gift.
We love these portraits.
4. LGBT Personalized Hidden Message Scroll Braided
You’re never too old for friendship bracelets – obviously, these have a slight twist as it’s your anniversary. That’s where the hidden message comes in.
Yes, these bracelets have a hidden message as you scroll them along. You can put anything you like. That’s why Etsy is so special.
They also have pride colors incorporated, which is a lovely little addition. Plus, you both get one – just to make it even more special.
Personalised hidden message braided leather bracelet. Strong & stylish magnetic clasp. Add up to 30 characters (including spaces) on the scroll.
5. Don’t forget the card
Obviously, you also have to get your partner a card. This one is pretty perfect for you to give your husband! I love the timeless look. Like the artist says, sometimes less is more. You can add your own personalized message if you want, or leave it blank and hand write the message yourself.
Designed by the seller and professionally printed on great quality card with a light gloss finish.
Dimensions - 210mm x 148mm (A5 Card). Comes with a white envelope.
