Things that are superior: your husband's burgers and bamboo cutting boards. Bamboo is not only a dense wood, but it also absorbs little moisture, which protects against bacteria buildup. Nice! We suggest gifting this particular bamboo slab, which is personalized with your husband's name and title like "Head Chef."

This one has a crossback to take pressure off the neck, so it can be worn more comfortably. Just make sure to give this wedding anniversary gift for your husband before he starts cooking your romantic dinner.

This would look so good in his man cave! If your husband is a bit old school, he'll appreciate this wooden turntable to play all of his favorite records—after all, music sounds better this way!

Frequently Asked Questions

If you're still wondering what to give your husband for your anniversary, we've got more advice below.

Should you buy your husband an anniversary gift?

Yes, you should buy your husband an anniversary gift. (Sorry, being married to you actually isn't enough.) Unless the two of you agreed not to give individual gifts this year (perhaps you're going on a trip instead), you should pick up something for him to reaffirm your love and commitment. It doesn't have to be big, it could even be a DIY anniversary gift, like a coupon book, as long as it comes from the heart. After all, everyone wants to feel special, especially your life partner, and a meaningful gift is a great way to make them feel all the feels.

What are some good anniversary gifts for husbands?

Anything your husband will like makes a good anniversary gift. Wait, what? My anniversary gift for my husband doesn't have to be sentimental or romantic? Think of it this way: Your anniversary is a chance to reemphasize to your husband how much you love and care for him, and that starts by knowing his gifting preferences. For instance, if he's a big beer drinker, wine glasses probably won't go over as well as pint glasses. So, if you adore his sense of humor (and he yours), a funny anniversary gift is just the thing. And if he appreciates one-of-kind items, find a personalized anniversary gift. It's also okay to pick an anniversary present for your husband that's practical, but is something that he really wants because it shows you've been listening. If you're still stumped, some of our favorite husband anniversary gifts are experiences, like a mixology class or sports game that presents an opportunity for you to spend quality time together. Bonus points if the experience shows your interest in his hobby.

Are there any traditional husband anniversary gifts?

Each year of marriage is associated with a traditional and modern material as well as a color, flower and gemstone, so you can use all of these anniversary gifts by year to find a unique gift for your husband. For example, many people give a paper anniversary gift for the first year of marriage, a cotton anniversary gift for the second year and a leather anniversary gift for the third. Notice: The longer you're together, the stronger the material becomes. By the time you reach your 30th anniversary, you'll be shopping for pearls and on the 60th you'll be browsing diamonds.
