On Monday, myself and my husband celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. We kept things fairly low key, but we both pushed the boat out with some gorgeous gifts for eachother, so it got me thinking about gift recommendations for wedding anniversaries. We have a Christmas gift guide running at the moment, so why not an anniversary gift guide – products from which, would also likely be suitable as romantic Christmas present ideas for women. Here are some fab top-picks of gifts ‘for her’.
If you are looking for a gift that is really personal, stylish and great as a piece of home decor that will stand the test of time forever, then you need to be aware of the amazing pictures from Clive Sefton. Brighton based artist and designer, Clive Sefton is the ‘word search man’. He has created original word searches for people from as far afield as Australia, Canada and across Europe and customers include King’s College London, Hotel IBIS, professional sports people and Brighton resident, Fatboy Slim. His personalised word search prints are high-quality pieces of art that make an unusual gift, especially for a significant event such as a birthday, wedding or anniversary, evoking countless thoughts and memories forever.
Clive Sefton takes real pride in the quality of his work and the service he provides and he’s happy to work with his customers to create the perfect memento. Each unique piece is created by hand, and printed and finished using the highest quality materials. Clive offers various options regarding finish, colours, sizes and framing and can even hand-finish them using 22ct gold leaf.
Write up to 100 words and short phrases that have personal meaning to you and he will combine them into a one-off piece of high-quality, uniquely personal, artwork. Maybe it’s a wedding date, a pet, song, restaurant, holiday or honeymoon location, each word can evoke so many personal feelings. You can even circle the words on the glass with the special pen provided with each print.
We actually had one of these made for our wedding anniversary (see pic above) with custom words that were personal and meaningful to us. The quality is absolutely amazing, the design is flawless and the overall effect is something so stylish that you’ll keep it in pride of place on your wall for years to come.

If you are looking for something romantic, that she’ll love then another great option is a candle from Neom Organics. We chose the new Christmas candle, with its gorgeous gold design and festive scent. Neom candles are one of my all time favourites as they are made from a blend of 100% natural vegetable waxes and 100% natural pure essential oils. Furthermore they have had independent tests to confirm that there are no chemical fertilisers or synthetic pesticides used in the farming stages that make those waxes and essential oils. An ideal gift for anniversaries, romantic occasions and Christmas!
Hot on the heels of this year’s autumn/winter trends, Cross is celebrating all things floral with the new Cross Botanica collection (£60-£85 RRP). With unique, fashion-forward designs, this new collection of three stunning pens is this season’s must have for every style savvy fashionista and would make an amazing gift idea for Christmas or anniversaries.
Decorated with elegant, eye-catching floral patterns, the Cross Botanica Collection is an essential addition to your handbag and sure to brighten any outfit. Inspired by the intricate details of henna, this chic Cross Collection will stand out from the crowd with its beautiful bloom prints.
As with all Cross writing instruments, the Cross Botanica collection comes with a lifetime mechanical guarantee. I am head over heels in love with my fabulous cross pen and can’t wait to use it! Get them at www.cross.com
Last but not least, Champagne is always a winner at Christmas or for special occasions like your anniversary. A personal favourite of mine is Bollinger, which is great as a luxurious tipple when you want something that is luxurious, but won’t completely break the bank. There are lots of places where you can buy online, but one of my personal favourites (that I’ve had amazing experiences with for the products, and the ordering and delivery process) is www.31dover.com where you will find all of the latest Champagne gifts and many more fabulous drinks.
