It’s true: men are pretty simple. We’re not saying they’re all the same, but it only takes a few things to make 99% of them happier than a clam: a cold beer (or a hot cup of coffee), a nice big char-grilled steak (or tofu burger), or…well, use your imagination. But his simplicity doesn’t mean he has a heart of stone — men need to feel special too. We’re here to help you with that.
Every now and then, you may get the urge to ship your mate off to Siberia. It’s a much better idea to redirect those frustrations and draft an itinerary for a joint excursion that the two of you can enjoy … together!

We imagine you have some beautiful photographs of the two of you, and you might consider getting one framed to commemorate your anniversary. It’d be a thoughtful gift, but perhaps a little too one-dimensional to express the depths of your feelings. Custom Bobbleheads, on the other hand, will capture your love in all its 3D glory. Much more interesting than a photo, nod your head if you agree…
Going grocery shopping together on a Friday night doesn’t quite cut it after a while.

Matching t-shirts and twin bracelets are cute, but they don’t send quite the same message of togetherness that a committed couple should be aiming for. Take yourself off the market definitively with some appearance-altering skin ink. The latest in relationship branding, these companion tattoos add a whole new degree of permanence to the relationship. Be brave and go bold, but make hay while the sun shines, lovebirds—body art looks best on young, supple skin!
Surely you’ve got plenty of memories to mark the passage of time together, but it’s good to have some numbers to back up your feelings. And it’ll be interesting to see the look on your spouse/partner’s face when they’re confronted with the irrefutable evidence that yes, you really have been together for an absurdly large number of days. But even more than that, a Days Together mug serves as a reminder of the substantial investment you’ve both made. In economics they refer to it as “sunk cost,” and it’s a healthy motivator.

And really, that’s the true measure of style: does it look good on a clown suit?
A lot of the time we call the small gestures we make “tokens” of our affection. But what nobody ever points out is that those tokens are basically worthless, like stamped coins from an arcade that closed years ago. Unlike those metaphorical “tokens,” these real metal love tokens can be exchanged for things you actually want. And sometimes what your relationship needs is to re-establish some basic standards. Like, if someone gives you a token, you should be able to spend it on something. Problem fixed.
Once you’ve been together a while, you’ll probably want to inject a little creativity into your date nights. This is a great way to do that, using the prompts provided, albeit with parameters that you set yourself by filling out your own specific date night activities, instead of leaving it up to someone you’ve never met and whose mental state you can’t realistically vet. You’re in this for the long haul - don’t let date night become another boring ritual.
Take a little field trip to the spot where your two souls first collided. Revisiting the place where your journey together started will mark just how far you’ve come.

There is something undeniably touching about having an artist recreate your image by hand using the old-time tools of long-gone artistic masters. After all, any old fool can press a shutter button and spit out a photo of your homely mug.

Share a banana split, float to the top of the Ferris wheel and let go of everything but your sweetheart’s hand!
Most of the time, we don’t exactly chronicle our relationships. We let the day-to-day fluctuations in our feelings, beliefs, and attitudes recede into the hazy distance of memory. Sometimes this works just fine, because if you need ammo for an argument you can just make things up, and sometimes the other person believes you, and then you win. Sort of. But not really. This journal provides daily questions for both partners to fill out over the course of three years, ranging from simple and straightforward to deeply introspective. A great way to look back and see how your thoughts and feelings have actually changed.
Your love is a cause for celebration and what better way to get into the celebratory party spirit than with their very own personalized whiskey barrel? Some things really do get better with age and while relationships can sometimes be one of them, whiskey is always.

You supply the date and location, and let math and the laws of physics do the rest.
So many of your household appliances would be better if they weren’t fixed in place. Wouldn’t you sometimes like to bake in the backyard? Do the laundry on your roof deck? And what about the toilet? Wouldn’t you like to…well, never mind. For now, we’ve got the inflatable hot tub. Move it, deflate and store it, set it back up and inflate it in three minutes whenever it’s needed.
Give the gift of beautiful views, bucket-list achievements, and especially if they’re afraid of heights, hours of entertainment for you. It veers away from cruel since it’s completely safe, but you’ll definitely get your money’s worth watching them rotate between admiring the splendor and clutching the basket while praying in four languages. Especially since they only speak one.
There’s no shame in not always having something new to talk about when you’ve been together for a while. You basically share a brain at this point.

The good life is all about quality over quantity. Or maybe it’s about quality and quantity. We’re not here to argue. If they still want to swill down cheap rotgut wine by the box, nobody’s going to stop them. It’s their life, not yours. But here’s a great way to broaden their horizons once a month by introducing them to the stuff that’s popular with the people who don’t mix their chardonnay with diet sprite.
Some might consider it the ultimate display of human privilege to begin claiming faraway stars just because we have a few extra dollars in our pockets.

So go ahead and give someone a little piece of the cosmic pie. Nothing to get all riled up about.

Back in the grand old days of nobility, every clan with any standing in society had a family shield they displayed proudly for all the world to see. These days, that might seem a little extra.

For centuries people have been asking for the key to a happy marriage. It’s a wonder that it took so long for someone to finally make it. Judging by the demand, they’re going to make a killing off of this.

One thing they don’t tell you about married life is that it’s measured on multiple time scales. Once you’re married, it’s no longer enough to remember what time of day it is. You also have to keep track of what time of year it is, lest you overlook the anniversary and end up paying for it for the rest of your life. But there’s another level up from that: the “Holy sh*t, I can’t believe how long we’ve been together” time scale. That’s what makes this clock special: it tracks all three.

It’s said that when one lover thinks about the other, the distant partner’s heart glows with a bright, penetrating light like the first emanating rays of a newborn star. But because your heart is buried deep within the dark, wet recesses of your torso, you just have to take their word for it. Wouldn’t it be so much better to see it with your own eyes? These long distance light-up bracelets are a big improvement over that strange piece of ancient folklore.
Traveling together can be a bonding experience. But if you’re going to be seen together, isn’t it time they lose that 1970s mustard colored softshell leather suitcase?

If your idea of “together time” has turned into watching three hours of Netflix on the same couch, this might be just the thing for you.

With any normal chocolate bar, even the generously-sized original Toblerone, one’s enjoyment is always tarnished by the sad thought that the experience will soon be over. Candy bars simply don’t last long enough. In contrast, candy lovers look upon this giant Toblerone bar the same way that a mountaineer gazes up at a lofty peak. In their mind, they understand that one day the expedition will be over, and the mammoth before them will have been conquered. Yet in the moment they can’t quite believe it.
