Homemade Anniversary Gift Ideas
Bake Cookies And Cake
A cake plays one of the most important roles when celebrating some sort of anniversary. This time on your parents or uncle and aunt’s wedding anniversary surprise them with a homemade cake which you have baked yourself. To bake a cake you need 500 gram flour, 200 gram cocoa powder, 100 gram sugar and about 80 gram butter.
Melt the butter in a bowl and then mix all the ingredients together to get a smooth batter. Put the batter in a clean bowl, which has been oiled along its sides. Place the bowl in the microwave for 30 minutes. If you don’t have a microwave you can even use a normal oven. Decorate the cake with sugar powder.
Paint the faces of the people who you wish to give the gift to on a canvas or a chart paper. You could even use a t-shirt and write some sort of anniversary message on it. Alternately, you could draw something which signifies their anniversary. Your parents or your friends will be glad to receive this gift because memories are priceless. You could even paint a handkerchief with fabric colors.

On this anniversary make a card for them and write how much you love them, how much they mean to you. Write a small poem on the card. Write about all the occasions in which they have made you feel special. The card will surely make them feel special and will bring a smile on their face.
Get hold of an old mug or a jar. Paint the outer side of the mug with bright colors. You could even use glitters and sketch pens to decorate the mug. After the decoration is over allow the cup to dry for a few hours. After the cup has dried write the name of the person you are gifting this mug.
Along with the name make sure you write “happy anniversary” so that the whenever the person sees the mug he remembers the special day when you had gifted him the mug. If the entire name does not fit you can just write the initials. This personalized mug can serve as a pen holder, utensil holder or maybe a coffee tumbler.
