16 Anniversary Gift Ideas.

Who on earth decided we needed to splash out on gifts for anniversaries before we were married? The money we spend, retailers are having a field day and the longer and longer a relationship goes on the more you feel the need to one up the previous year!

Anyway, my un romantic rant over - it is my anniversary at the beginning of May! My boyfriend and I will have been together 6 years on May 7th and celebrating the fact we haven't murdered each other and have trundled along quite happily from the tender age of 17. 

Over the years we have dug out some of the most obscure anniversary presents (I'm talking a remote control boat on year 1) to some of the nicest (I have a charm bracelet that gets added to once a year on our anniversary) and last year we didn't even get to spend it together because we were both doing finals in uni. This year whilst we are in the same country and we live together, we are also both lacking in funds - I envisage the 'Help Me I'm Poor' meme from Bridesmaids here. So this year we are forgoing fancy gifts and just going for a meal because with his work we basically never see each other and it'll be a nice chance to take some time out, sans phones (although I might Instagram a photo of my food before putting my phone away because I am basic). 

With this in mind, if we were spending all the cash this year, here's some anniversary gift ideas I might be looking at!
