Well, I don't know about your wife, but I'd suggest something that shines or sparkles. Women like things like that. Probably doesn't have be a DIAMOND, but you might try one in her favorite color.

to give you an idea on what to buy on your wedding anniversary, one should identify which nth anniversary is it? most of us remember that the 25th is silver, 40th ruby, and 50th golden, but what about those in between (1st to 24th for example). Surprise your better half with the appropriate gift for specific anniversary. The 1st is PAPER, on which you can write The 2nd is COTTON, all crisp and white, The 3rd is LEATHER, a bag or some gloves, The 4th is BOOKS, Lady Chatterley's loves! The 5th is WOOD, a box full of dreams, The 6th is IRON, metal not steam The 7th is WOOL, soft and warm The 8th is BRONZE, metal in an elegant form The 9th is COPPER, and 10th is TIN, If you have got this far you are bound to win. The 11th is STEEL, so shiny and bright The 12th is SILK, so soft and so light, The 13th is LACE, maybe a cloth for a tray, The 14th is IVORY, leave it for Jumbo, Its better that way! The 15th is CRYSTAL, cut glass at its best, The 20th CHINA, cups, plates and the rest, The 25th is SILVER - really swell The 30th is PEARL - from an oyster's shell The 35th is CORAL, from under the sea The 40th is RUBY, as red as red can be The 45th is SAPPHIRE - precious and blue The 50th is GOLDEN - Congratulations to you! The 55th is EMERALD - so green and so pure, The 60th DIAMOND - an achievement for sure. The 65th BLUE SAPPHIRE and 70th PLATINUM The last two which are reached by some The 75th is DIAMOND AND GOLD The 80th OAK Or something suitable for the very old!

First of all, congratulations for your anniversary! It's always nice for men to remember this special day. It depends on your wife's interests then you can decide what's the best gift for her. But most women always like jewelry:)

When in a serious relationship marriage or engagement I advise against flowers and candy. I think the best gift you can give her is something that last alot of women love jewlry but the best gift I ever got my wife was a Nikon camera she wanted. Mostly because she is a photographer fanatic. If you can find some hobby your wife has and get her something for it she will probly love it alot more than just jewelry. Unless jewelry is her favorite thing.

I think it's not the gift that matters.. it's the surprise. So I would try to figure something that would really surprise her. If it was with me (I don't know your wife) I would love that my husband offered me a surprise dinner in some good restaurant, had arranged a weekend out of town without telling me, payed me a massage session or a beauty institute session.. something like this..

i guess, it differs on what women wants...i guess, it would be nice for you to bring your wife out to the mall and do some window shopping with her..with that youll get a hint on what she likes already especially if she start pointing on stuff that she like! good luck!

I would get her something special or take her out for an evening and make it special.

Something that means something to the two of you. Something that possibly brought you together. Maybe some time and attention from yourself. You could start working on your next anniversary right after you get done with this one. Good luck finding that thing or things that will make the difference.

it's kinda difficult to suggest what to buy as an anniversary gift to your wife. maybe because it's you who know what she wants. but for me, a bouquet of flowers if enough to make a woman happy with a sweet card attached to it. plus a dinner for two. or better yet, cook dinner for her that night. for sure, she'll be surprised and will remember it as one of your most wonderful anniversaries together.

Why not attempt to recreate the steps to when you first met her, or when you asked het to be your girlfriend, or when you asked her to marry her, if possible all of them from when you first met to when you proposed. Then where you proposed you could read her a poem or something like that. Me as a girl would find that real romantic, better then any gift.

Has she give you any hint's yet? Try to get her something that she hasn't thought of and it may surprise her. It could be something that she wanted and forgot about it so surprise her with anything.

Only you know your wife- You didn't say which anniversary it is either- Is it a big one? Jewelry always works- or a weekend trip away- just the 2 of you- what kinds of things does she like-

Maybe she has said something during the last year? My boyfriend is very good at remembering what I say I'd like during the entire year. It is very nice when he surprises me with something that I really want but did not even remember that I told him about. If you do not know of any such things, amybe a CD with all your favorite couple songs? I would have liked to get a night out, or a weekend stay at a hotel, or maybe soome of my favorite pampering things: expensive nice shower gel and bodylotion for instance.

Is this a special year anniversary for you both? Not knowing that, the only thing I can think of is jewerly. Most woman love jewerly. Or I know I would like pampering ( A day at a spa and have a pedicure, manicure, and massage). Good luck with finding the perfect gift. I think you will also have to taler it to what your wife likes and tastes.

It largely depends upon what kind of person is she, my dear friend. If she is romantic kind of person, then you can get her something rare, or something which has daring involved in it. If she is more 'practical' kind of person, then you can get her something like jewelery or some electronic gadget (Later, you can use it also ;-) ) If she loves humour, then do something simple that has reference to something that had happened between you sometime ago. For example, one of my friend had gifted his sock to the girl and she had liked it very much and laughed a lot.

You can buy it online from http://www.paintyourlife.com/ A painting, cool, nice, or something she loves, like her pet :) Send a pic of what it is to that site, after seeing instructions and choose some options - so they deliver your painting to your door. Karl

I suggest, you will take your wife out to the very place where you first dated together as lovers or to the place where you have done your married proposal towards her, much surprisingly with her eyes blind folded going to the said place. Plus, it should be at night time of course with a romantic preparation is a must have comes with a romantic music played which is also your wife's favorite music. So, I guess she would be happy with this idea but it's still up to you...your final decision has to be made on that very day. :-)

What she loves? Some have pets, and so they create a painting of their dog. They send a picture of the dog to http://www.paintyourlife.com/ and the artists on that site create painting and mail it to them. Karl

You can get her a neglace, bracelet or earings. I think we can never get enough of those at all.
