Leather, lace, crystal and china may sound like a thoughtful gift, but it’s time to think outside of the box and get your soul mate something a little more exciting to mark the occasion!

Honouring your wedding anniversary as a couple should be about celebrating your partnership. While gifts are never the be-all and end-all, it certainly helps to choose something that not only embodies the thought that you put in but also the attraction that you still have for your partner, whether you’re celebrating your first or 60th anniversary!

If you’d like to step outside of the norm this year, here’s a list of our top anniversary gifts to help you bring back some of that wedding night passion!

1st Wedding Anniversary: Paper


Give a new meaning to your paper anniversary with a touch of erotica. Write your beau a naughty, little note and leave it inside an erotic book like the Lovehoney Position of the Week Book. With 52 pozzies, this gift will keep on giving for every week of the year if you test out one position a week! You can find a MLM version here and a WLW version here.

2nd Wedding Anniversary: Cotton


When it comes to the cotton anniversary, bed linen is the norm. And while a good bedspread can definitely help to freshen things up in the bedroom, a length of soft cotton bondage rope is a guaranteed way to make your anniversary a memorable one! Nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like light bondage.

3rd Wedding Anniversary: Leather


Sure, a leather bag, belt or pair of shoes are nice, but they certainly don’t compare to a good spanking! What better way to celebrate your third wedding anniversary than with a beautiful leather paddle like the Lovehoney Satin and Leather Spanking Paddle. Leather is always a crowd fave when it comes to bondage gear, so if paddles don’t tickle your fancy, then you’re sure to find something else that fits the bill!

4th Wedding Anniversary: Silk

Silk is about as sensual as it comes, so how could you possibly pass up the opportunity to gift something erotic? A beautiful silky blindfold like the one in this gift set can be used by yourself and your lover to take your bedroom time to the next level. Build trust and explore sensory deprivation by introducing a blindfold to your routine.

5th Wedding Anniversary: Wood

lifelike lover - wedding anniversary - 500x

It may not be made of timber as such, but a realistic dildo is specially designed to imitate a different kind of wood if you catch our drift… Dildos come in all shapes and sizes, so you can carefully choose one that will best suit your partner! The Lifelike Lover Classic Realistic Dildo is a great all-rounder and is perfect for everyone, no matter your bits!

6th Wedding Anniversary: Iron

Sure, it may be made of stainless steel and not iron, but the njoy Pure Wand Stainless Steel Dildo is loved by metal sex toy aficionados the world over! Perfectly curved to hit the G-spot, this puppy is THE toy if you want to learn how to squirt. But if getting wet and wild isn’t quite for you, it still delivers outstanding internal massage!

7th Wedding Anniversary: Wool

Wool can be a tricky one to make sexy, but luckily Lovehoney has you covered with our sex position wedges. Yes, this is a bit of a reach given that our wedges are filled with foam (for firmer support), but we're going to take it. Covered in soft-to-the-touch fabric and designed to elevate your positions and hit spots you've never been able to before, your 7th anniversary will be one to remember.

8th Wedding Anniversary: Bronze

discreet vibe 500x

Jewellery is beautiful, but it’s even better when it buzzes! Introducing the Lovehoney Dare Discreet Necklace Vibrator. Perfect for external stimulation, gift this necklace to your long-time lover before date night to share a saucy secret and have delicious vibrations on hand whenever the moment strikes.

9th Wedding Anniversary: Pottery

marble sensual prober 500x

It may not be pottery, but there’s no doubt that glass dildos are works of art in their own right. The Lovehoney Marbled Sensual Glass Prober in particular features a curved shaft that’s bejewelled with a beautiful raised swirl texture for maximum pleasure.

10th Wedding Anniversary: Tin

orgasm balm 500x

Congratulations on making it to the big 10! Although a tin of beans always makes for a laugh after a decade with your flame, why not treat them to the gift of extra tingling stimulation? An orgasm balm like the Lovehoney Oh! Cherry Orgasm Balm, presented in a cute little tin, not only smells delicious but comes with the potential for increased sensitivity and enhanced stimulation! What could be better?!

13th Wedding Anniversary: Lace

There’s no doubt that your lace anniversary calls for a sensual piece of lacy lingerie. If you’ve never dabbled in sexy lingerie, the thought of slipping into a revealing piece can be a little unnerving, but there are plenty of styles out there that have been specifically designed to flatter all different sexes and body shapes. Try a piece like the Lovehoney Flaunt Me Black Lace Robe, or if you’re looking for a lacy pair of bottoms, Lovehoney is home to a huge range of lacy boxers that get rave reviews.

14th Wedding Anniversary: Ivory

vintage romance 500x

Enjoy a cruelty-free ivory anniversary by dropping the real deal in favour of a piece featuring the stunning colour instead! Our top tip is to have a little squizz at our white lingerie section and go for something pale and pretty that reminds you of your wedding day. Our pick is the Lovehoney Vintage Romance Sheer Ivory Lace Babydoll and Corset Set, just complete the look with a pair of sexy stockings and you’ll be on your way to ecstatic bliss.

40th Wedding Anniversary: Ruby


It’s not quite a ruby, but a beautiful jewelled butt plug like the Lovehoney Jewelled Metal Butt Plug makes an excellent substitute for jewellery or cufflinks. After 40 years together you’re sure to have had your fair share of sexual experimentation, so why not invest in a fun new toy to celebrate and continue your journey as a couple!

50th Wedding Anniversary: Gold


Celebrating a half-century together certainly calls for something extra special! Mark the occasion with something extra luxe, like the Womanizer W500 Rechargeable Clitoral Stimulator. This beautiful gold clit sucker is the perfect way to celebrate your gold anniversary!
