Your anniversary is approaching, and you’re looking for a great gift for your loved one. The challenge is that you don’t know what to get.

Maybe a getaway or a date night?

Those gifts are fun, but they’re things you may already do regularly. You’re looking for a romantic gift for your significant other that is useful while also acting as a permanent reminder of the special day.

That’s where this gift guide can help.

We’ve come up with 48 gifts, divided into categories depending on how long you’ve been married, that are great choices for commemorating your wedding day.

But before we get started, a quick word on the article format. We’ve divided each dating or married period into three categories so you can find a thoughtful gift no matter your budget:

  • Budget-Friendly – Get a unique gift that doesn’t break the bank.

  • Mid-Range – Spend a little more for an anniversary present that lasts a lifetime.

  • Splurge – If you have money to burn, these are the gifts that go big to celebrate your milestone anniversary.
