Writing the Perfect Gift Message for an Anniversary

It is customary to congratulate happy couples as they celebrate each year of marriage. Often, we find ourselves needing a gift for a couple with whom we are not extremely familiar, such as an aunt and uncle, long-distance grandparents, or a pair of friends we only see once in a while. It can be difficult to know exactly what to buy, and exactly what to write in a gift message in these instances. When preparing to write your gift message, here are a few key points to cover:

•    Salutation: Dear Name & Name
•    Congratulations on number of years together
•    Comment on this achievement
•    Your wishes for their future
•    Closing (Love, Sincerely, Best Wishes, etc.)

Here is an example of an appropriate anniversary gift message:

Dear John and Kathy,

Congratulations on 36 wonderful years together! Your success as a couple has inspired many, and is an accomplishment to be proud of. I wish you many more years of companionship and love.

With Love,

You may also decide to comment on your gift as well, such as an expression of your hope that they enjoy it. Just a few brief lines adequately conveys your wishes and sentiments for the happy couple, and is appropriately personal for a couple that you may not see on a daily, monthly or even yearly basis.

It may also be difficult to pick out a present to go along with your nice gift message. Perfect anniversary gifts include bottles of wine, gift baskets, home d├ęcor items, or gifts related to hobbies that they share as a couple. This Chocolate Fondue and Champagne for Two Gift Chest from Arttowngifts.com makes a romantic and unique gift for a couple.  This set includes two small bottles of champagne and a fondue set complete with chocolate chips for melting, a pot, stand, candle and dipping forks. They are sure to love this gift, and your message!
