Romantic But Don’t Overdo It

An anniversary gift by definition needs to be romantic and thoughtful. Nevertheless don’t go overboard by choosing something too overtly romantic or cheesy at this stage. It can make your boyfriend uncomfortable and he may feel obligated to return the favour even if he’s not ready.

Use the anniversary to express your love for him, which can be done effectively with a sweet small gift or even a handmade card by you.
