You can’t help but feel nostalgic when you think back to your first year as a married couple. You were so young, but you knew that this was the person you wanted to spend the rest of your life with. Now, almost four decades later, you’re still in love and looking forward to what the future holds.
42nd Anniversary Gifts to suit the theme
To celebrate this milestone anniversary, we’ve put together a list of gifts that are perfect for any 42nd wedding anniversary celebration.
With the only gift theme being improved real estate then unless you fancy moving to a better property or getting the contractors in for a refreshing redesign then you’ll need to think outside the box.
The gift that you need to give is one that will improve the quality of life for both you and your partner. Something that will make the house feel more like a home and less like a collection of bricks, mortar and carpets.
The thing is, a home doesn’t need to be the only gift you give. There are plenty of options out there that can help your loved one celebrate their special day in style and make sure they know just how much they mean to you.
If you’re not sure what would be appropriate for your partner, then why not have a look at their interests and see if there are any hobbies or activities that they enjoy.
If they’re a keen gardener and always talking about the latest trends in gardening equipment then maybe it’s time to treat them to something like an electric lawnmower or a brand new set of garden shears. These, after all, will improve your real estate once used so match perfectly with the years theme.
