Choosing to go the personal route for a 25th anniversary gift will show the recipient that a lot of thought and time has gone into choosing it. Personalised 25th anniversary gifts are a great way of showing someone how much they’re valued. But shopping for this kind of gift can be a bit daunting, as there is so much to choose from, and some of the gifts can be a bit tacky.
If you find the right gift, then your wife or husband will feel like they’re one-in-a-million, and the gift will be treasured. However you choose to do your shopping, whether it’s by walking down your local High Street, perusing the many online shops, or taking a special trip to an out of town retail development, you’re going to be bombarded with options. Many of the gifts you’ll encounter will seem pretty mundane, but add an engraving or personalisation and the gift takes on a whole new meaning.
Personalised Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Her
With the symbol for a 25th anniversary being silver, you’re not going to be disappointed if you’re looking for silver jewellery for your wife. Add some well chosen words, preferably not too many, and your gift will be perfect for your princess. We say not too many words, because the space for engraving on items of jewellery is a little limited, to say the least. There’s not enough room for a complex love song, sonnet or poem. But there are 3 words that can be fitted into the smallest of spots. “I Love You” will be perfect, or “My love always” or “Love you forever”……..get what we mean?
Personalised Something for the Home
Something as simple as salt and pepper shakers, when they’re in the shape of conjoined hearts, or a couple sharing a loving embrace, can be personalised with a message, names and even the date of your wedding. Does your wife need somewhere special to keep her treasured possessions? What about a personalised trinket box, or an engraved jewellery box for all her diamonds and pearls?
You could be romantic by giving her the gift of a silver star. This sort of gift has far more room for your message, up to 60 characters in fact.
A silver cake knife and server for those afternoon teas she so loves to hold for her friends. And with a touch of personalisation she’ll be proud to bring them out for special occasions.
What about all those photos that seem to stay unseen in a drawer? A personalised photo frame will be perfect for all those treasured family snaps.

Personalised 25th Anniversary Gifts for Him
You’ve probably been pretty successful up to now, with your anniversary gifts for him. But this year, because it’s your 25th, you’re thinking about pushing the boat out and buying him something other than socks, beer, after shave or something for the other love in his life – his car. You want this anniversary to be special, and be able to give him a gift that he’ll treasure, because it will show him how much you care. When looking for your gift think about the passions in his life, apart from you of course, and find a gift that is useful and practical. Tick those boxes, and you’ll have done a outstanding job.
Once you’ve found the gift, look into getting it personalised because it will lift anything above the usual run of the mill. And make it stand out both in his heart and eyes, as being chosen with care.
We’re always going to suggest jewellery, whether the gift is for a man or a woman, because it is a very versatile gift choice and there are so many options. It will also tie in beautifully with the symbol for most anniversary years. But not all men love to adorn themselves with silver trinkets, so bear in mind what he prefers. It might be that silver cufflinks, a tie-pin or silver watch would be much more in keeping with his taste.
Silver Engraved Pen
Do people still use these old fashioned pieces of kit? Yes they really do. Even in the modern office there comes a time when nothing beats a piece of paper and a pen. And let’s face it while some people may be surgically attached to their smartphones or tablets, this might not be the case for your man.
Silver Key Ring
Does your beloved struggle to keep track of his car keys, or end up with holes in his pockets from all those keys that are jangling around? A key ring engraved with his initials could be just what is called for, making it a very practical and useful gift. Some of those on offer even allow a spot for his favourite photo – a picture of you and not his care of course.
Looking for the perfect silver anniversary gift for your man shouldn’t get you in a lather. Be confident in your choice of gift, because there’s something out there for everyone, all shapes and sizes and to suit all tastes. Add a touch of personalisation and you’re heading straight to the top of his favourites list. If you’re not already there that is. Just remember that personalised gifts are perfect if you’ve left things till the last minute. Having an item engraved can take a few days, possibly even longer.
