Celebrating an anniversary? Lots of fun. Getting your partner something sweet that they’ll actually use? Kinda stressful. Finding a meaningful gift can take some searching, which is why we did the hard work for ya. We’ve got custom art, cozy loungewear, and some options for foodies too. Anything and everything to make your sweetheart feel the luv. Cheers to another year spent happily together.

A custom canvas print that’ll be ready in just a few days…

We’re talking museum-quality that’s also water- and fade-resistant. Once you select an image, you’ll be able to fine-tune the details, like whether you want white or black edges, or if you prefer the photo to wrap around the border. There are also square sizes available, plus portrait and landscape options. Once you’re done and have finalized your canvas, everything will be shipped to you. Then just sit back and enjoy watching your partner unwrap it. ($76+, Canvaspop)

A pizza maker so you can enjoy a pie together…

Say hello to 12-inch cheesy pizzas and goodbye to boring takeout. You’ll be able to achieve that perfectly crispy crust without burning the toppings. If you aren’t in the mood for pizza (who isn’t?), the maker can lie flat to become a grill. If you’re worried about storage, don’t be. The pizza maker stands upright so it’s way more compact than you think. ($69.99, QVC)

A celebration glass set so you can toast on every anniversary…

Use the dry erase marker to fill in the blanks and then raise a glass. Whether you’re celebrating two years, 20 years, or more. The coasters even have cute prompts so the two of you can reflect on the last year spent together. Cheers. ($50, Uncommon Goods)

A carbon steel wok if they're upping their home-chef game...

This incredibly handy pan is lighter than cast iron and more long-lasting than nonstick. They'll be able to whip up stir-fries, scramble eggs, and so much more. It comes pre-seasoned and has a couple trusty accessories too. There's a tempura rack that folds into a steamer, plus a glass lid. Aka they'll be able to see how things are cooking without having to pick up the lid dripping with moisture. Score. PS: Through March 31, Skimm'rs can receive 20% off with code SKIMM20. ($99, Food52)

A leather wallet that’s shaped to fit in their front pocket…

Carrying a wallet in the front is way safer, but traditional square options can be bulky and uncomfortable to walk around with. Since this one is curved, it fits seamlessly into their pocket.

As robe enthusiasts ourselves, there’s really nothing better than putting one on at night and cuddling into the couch. This robe is made from fleece and won’t shed or pill. So they’ll be able to wear it in the morning while they sip their cup of coffee or once they’re done working for the day. Don’t say we didn’t warn ya if they love it so much that they keep their video off during WFH meetings and wear it 24/7. ($99, L.L.Bean)
