How to Write the Perfect Anniversary Message to Your Spouse

How to Write the Perfect Anniversary Message to Your Spouse

An anniversary card is a simple way to express your love for your husband or wife, but what's the best way to get your message across? Let these six ideas inspire your special greeting for your spouse:

1. Refer to an Inside Joke.

Over the years, you've surely developed a number of inside jokes that only the two of you can fully understand. Find a way to elude to one or more in your anniversary card to get your spouse grinning.

2. Speak from the Heart.

Take the time to say those special somethings that have been left unsaid throughout the rest of the year. An anniversary card is the perfect opportunity to thank your spouse and express how much they mean to you.

3. Wax Poetic.

Compose a little love poem for your husband or wife or find one online and credit the author. Find an anniversary card that matches the theme and spirit of the poem.

4. Sum It Up in a Sentence.

How would you describe your relationship or your spouse in a single sentence? Try this exercise and you can create a short, yet sweet greeting.

5. Recall a Special Moment.

Remind your spouse of a moment that has deep meaning for the two of you. You can pick the day you met, your wedding day or the day your child was born. Write a short reflection on the occasion and sign the card with love.

6. Count the Ways.

Take a romantic cue from Shakespeare's sonnets! At the top of the card, say "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways" and then create a numerical list of the things you love most about your spouse. Focus on the little details that only you would know to make the card truly touching.

Even if your anniversary is fast approaching, you still have time to touch your spouse's heart with a one-of-a-kind card. Our anniversary Photo Cards are available with FREE Same Day Pickup and can be customized with a special photograph and your special greeting. Start designing your card now!
