The Milestone Edit: Splurge Worthy Gifts for Every Anniversary

Shopping for a milestone-worthy gift is no easy task.
When you’re looking for the perfect present to mark 5, 10, or even 15 years together, you’ve got to get creative. We did the hard work for you by rounding up some of our favorite anniversary gifts that are foolproof picks for any milestone occasion–and, we asked Arielle to share her take on the best gifts to give for each occasion!

The Early Years

In the early years of a relationship, you can’t go wrong with gifting a sentimental present like a custom framed photo from Framebridge. If you want to gift jewelry or an accessory, focus on what your partner’s favorite pieces are. “When we first started dating, Brandon bought me a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita shoes and I loved them,” Arielle said. “It was such a fun gift for me and I’d still want that! It’s also super personal, I live for shoes and it’s my favorite accessory so he knew to buy me that. It depends on what you love!”

5-Year Anniversary

Once you’re at the five-year mark, you’ll have some tried-and-true ideas of what your partner loves. Arielle advises that accessories are a good category to gift when celebrating five years together. A beautiful handbag, like this style by Bottega Veneta, is a great way to mark the special occasion. Or, give the gift of pampering and relaxation with a gift certificate to use at a Caudalie spa location. You can also give your partner a gift that will never go out of style–nothing says timeless quite like a Hermès scarf.

10-Year Anniversary

To commemorate your 10 year anniversary, a statement piece is the way to go. Arielle loves the idea of gifting jewelry for this milestone, whether its a pair of Jennifer Fisher earrings or a gold and diamond necklace by Foundrae. A classic jewelry box by Aerin is the perfect gift to store her favorite pieces, or you can give a super personal custom anniversary book from The New York Times to celebrate your many years together.

15-Year Anniversary

Celebrating 15 years together is a major milestone, so lean into a luxury gift idea for the occasion. An iconic watch from Cartier would be an unforgettable present your partner will cherish forever. A one-of-a-kind piece from Irene Neuwirth would be incredibly special, as would a high-end bag by Fendi or Chanel.
