Two-Year Dating Anniversary Gifts

by Catherine Copeland

When a person has been in a relationship with their significant other for two years, it is often considered a milestone. Two years is the point where a couple often decides if they are in the relationship for the long haul and begins discussing long-term plans and goals. There are many appropriate gifts to commemorate a two year anniversary.

Perfume

Bottles of perfume

Perfume is a sweet, practical and romantic gift all wrapped into one, and it makes a perfect gift for a second dating anniversary. There are companies that will custom make perfume for your special someone. Let the company know what her favorite flowers are, and they will create a special bottle of perfume in that scent just for her. This is a special way to customize a second dating anniversary present.

Sports Memorabilia

Sports memorabilia is one way directly into a man's heart, and it works well for a second dating anniversary gift. Purchase an item representing his favorite team to let him know you have been listening and paying attention all this time. Unique suggestions include a barbecue branding iron with his favorite team's logo or vintage prints from the team. Be sure to do a little research to find the item that would best fit your guy's personality and style.

Two Nights Away

Sometimes the best way to celebrate an anniversary is not with presents, but with a shared experience. Instead of exchanging gifts, decide on a place to go together for two nights -- one night for each year you have been together. Quick weekend trips can include Chicago or New York City, if you are looking for the big city feel, or may be a trip to a local winery for a more relaxing celebration.

Two Single Flowers

In order to celebrate the significance and importance of the two-year anniversary, give your significant other two single flowers -- whichever bloom is her favorite. This simple gesture will symbolize the power of two. It is important to pick out the person's favorite type of flower, be it roses, lilies or daisies. This will ensure that the person receiving the flowers knows how much thought was put into this gift.
