Anniversaries are very memorable events in your life. They symbolize years of dedication, loyalty, and happiness together with years of shared problems through the hardships of married life. To make this year’s wedding anniversary more significant, the following are some of the most appreciated 40th wedding anniversary gift ideas you can consider:

Amaze your wife or husband with a ruby-themed present

The ruby wedding anniversary represents forty years of marital relationship. You could amaze your spouse with anything ruby-themed. You can give your wife a set of ruby earrings, a ruby pendant, or an entire set of ruby jewelry. If it’s for your husband, you may delight him with ruby accessories, a ruby ring, cuff links, and a money clip. To complete your gift, put it in a ruby-colored bag or paper and ribbon.

Provide something expressive

When you are in your 60s, you tend to be more expressive with regards to celebrations of life and love. Reach the heart of your beloved by giving something sentimental. You can give a charcoal painting of your favorite wedding portrait or maybe a ruby picture frame with the family photograph in it. You may also get a double photo frame and put your wedding picture on one side and a favorite quote, poem, or song on the other.

Create a home-made gift

Another interesting and definitely touching gift item you can give your husband or wife on your fortieth wedding anniversary is a home-made gift. You could write a heartfelt poem especially for your partner and set it in a ruby-colored frame. A handmade scrapbook containing memories could also be ideal. You could put amazing photos starting when you were still in your younger years from childhood through the days you found one another. Proceed with some wedding ceremony photographs along with other important photos through the years, favorite poems, psalsm, and quotes, and even greeting cards and love letters you exchanged with one another.

Produce a compilation of pics, greetings and videos

Make your fortieth anniversary more memorable by giving your sweetheart a compilation of photos, greetings and videos. Get up to date by obtaining an electronic photo frame and prepare a set of images from the past to the present. You can also put the photograph documents onto a CD collection along with some wonderful family video clips. You can even include a recorded private greeting on your CD gift, and also greetings from family members and close friends.

Have something customized for your husband or wife

Any gift which is carefully personalized and chosen is often valued. Give your sweetheart a customized gift on your fortieth wedding anniversary. Pick something which he or she likes. For example, if your husband loves collecting coins, you may have a coin personalized for him by a money or coin maker. You can include a caption on it that reminds him that this special coin was offered on your fortieth anniversary. For your wife, as another example, you can customise a cooking set plus an apron for her in case she enjoys cooking food.

Other meaningful gift ideas for 40th wedding anniversaries include a CD compilation of music you both love, a funny cartoon photo sketch from a recent picture, and a cruise vacation.
