There’s no special 13th-anniversary gift connotation, but if you’ve not got a casting of your own hands in your front room, you’re really missing out.
Our bucket list journal
I’m a firm believer that everyone should have a bucket list – a list of the things that you want to complete before you “kick the bucket”.
There’s all kinds of weird stuff on mine that I won’t bore you with, but if you’re lucky enough to share your life with a partner – there’s some goals that you share together – that’s where your couples bucket list comes in.
Fill in the pages and you’ll have a physical document of what you want to do together and how you’re going to do it. That’s pretty damn special.

Personalization is great when it comes to any gift, so when there’s a gift that you’ll both see every day – you’ve bagged yourself a winner.
The Broad Bay personalized wooden plaque is the perfect reminder that you’ve been happily married for the last 13 years with the custom inscription saying exactly how long you’ve been together.

There’s something special about a card game, but when that card game brings out a golden conversation, it makes it all the better.
Without the Our Moments card game, you and your partner won’t be able to stop chatting about the good old days that you first met and got married those 13 years ago. It’s quality time on a date night in a way you won’t have experienced before – all thanks to a little deck of cards.
You can thank me later for such a great thirteenth-anniversary gift.
Anniversary surprise box
Nothing says ‘I love you like a carefully curated hamper of all your partner’s favorite things – but if you’re a little short on time – or have an undying hatred of arts and crafts, a premade surprise box might be the solution for you.
Containing some of the very best treats, including a sterling silver necklace, leather journal, rose petals and romantic candles, you’ll definitely be scoring points. If you’re feeling like going the extra mile, you’re always free to add a couple of bits and pieces here and there. No harm in adding to an already great product!
Wooden organization station
In a relationship where the better-half cannot stop losing their belongings, ease the frustration with a wooden organization station.
There’s plenty of these available to pick and choose from, but I’d recommend one that allows for just about everything they may have. From the phone (including charging point) to the wallet, watch, keys, and pens – the more the merrier.
You’ll never have to help find a watch ever again.
Bambusi premium cheese board set
Is there an occasion that a cheese board doesn’t go unappreciated? I don’t think so and that makes it the perfect 13th- anniversary gift.

Novelty toilet paper
Not everything on your special day needs to revolve around serious romantic gestures, at some point in the day, a little silliness should come into play and what better way than with novelty toilet paper?

Talking Trump anniversary card
Sticking with the theme of a little more novelty in the gift-giving scene, you’ll struggle to find a better greetings card than number 11 on our list.
The Talking Trump anniversary card is a must-have for any trump loving (or hating), partner, to open on the morning of your special date. The face they make when they open the card and Trump chats back will 100% be worth it.
It might be on the sillier side, but it’s a great buy if your partner has a good sense of humor!

It also comes in a neat little bag which adds cool points!
Benchmark Bouquets 2 dozen roses
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in this world, it’s that flowers are the perfect gift that should be utilized in every romantic occasion.
Roses should be your go-to choice unless your partner has a favorite flower, but you should stick with a minimum of 2 dozen. There’s plenty of options available and plenty of places to shop around, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the Amazon option – especially with Prime next day delivery.
But I really can’t stress this enough – flowers are the perfect thirteenth-anniversary gift. You have been warned.
Trudeau electric scarlet fondue pot
If you’ve made it this far through your marriage without a fondue pot, I salute you, but come on – don’t you think it’s about time? I see a thirteenth-anniversary gift idea coming.
Granted you’ll only use it a maximum of three times, but it’s the thought that counts, plus it is life-changing for that first run out. With the choice from Trudeau, you’ll get both a cheese and chocolate option, not mixed obviously, so you’ve got the very best of both worlds.
Oh, and it’s great for parties too – if you’re partial to a get together every so often.

Giant teddy bears improve literally every situation and this 47-inch bear from MaoGoLan MorrisMos is the perfect candidate for the 13th wedding anniversary. He’s big, he’s lovable, he’s big and he’s big – he’s the perfect stuffed companion.

This mini cryptex is a great way to tell your loved one how much you mean to them, but they have to decode it first. A great little puzzle and piece of movie merch that all Da Vinci Code lovers with appreciate.
Red heart-shaped balloons (12 + 1)
Looking for something to fill the room with but don’t fancy shelling out thousands of dollars like Gatsby in the 2013 blockbuster? Balloons are your friend, old sport.
Picking up a dozen should do the job and making sure that they’re heart-shaped is the icing on the cake for any anniversary. Don’t forget that you’ll need to fill them with helium if you’re looking for the floating effect, otherwise, you might be left feeling just a little deflated.
Bath and Body Works spa gift basket
Next up, another hamper/basket type deal, only this is full of great spa goodies from Bath and Body.
It’s a great gift, jam-packed with everything your partner could need to keep themself pampered for the foreseeable future. Want to bulk it out a little? As previous, buy some of their favorite products and include them in the hamper – perfect!
Preserved real rose in a glass dome
Coming straight out of a Disney princess movie, a preserved real rose in a glass dome is one for the Beauty and the Beast.
Look after it correctly and you’ll see a lifespan of between 3 and 5 years, seriously impressive when compared to the normal bunch of flowers. It really is the gift that keeps on giving, and you’ll still be able to look at it once your 18th anniversary comes around. Scary, isn’t it.
Coin set from 2006
Do you remember exactly what the coins were looking like when you first got married, I’m guessing not – so what better way to cast your mind back than with this set from 2006.
Order and you’ll be sent a collection of coins in a display case dating back to your special year. You might be paying a little more than the coins are actually worth, but it’s the thought that counts and this can be a super meaningful gift.
It also acts as a “break-in case of emergency” case too I suppose.
Novelty 4,745 days together mug
You thought we were going to be done with just the one novelty mug, did you? Ha! You thought wrong.
Welcome to item #22, the second novelty mug (and last, I promise) in the listing. This one, from Teerrific is a great 13th-anniversary gift, containing the inscription “4,754 days together, but who’s counting?” on the face. Great for a couple of laughs, or a couple of slaps – depends really – I won’t be held responsible though.
Engraved hip flask
Hip flasks are always a great gift, no matter who you’re buying for, so when it comes to the wedding anniversary, it always makes sense.
Coming with the heartfelt inscription “I still love you as much as the day we met”, it’s a lovely message on an equally lovely flask. Put a simple on your loved-ones face – unless y’ know, you both hated each other when you first met. In that case, I’d maybe avoid it…
Metal date night dice
Looking for a new way to spice up date-night? You’re in luck with these metal date-deciding dice giving you 36 different options of dates to spice up your love life.
There’s even a great 13th-anniversary message for your partner to discover when they’re opening up the gift – so you won’t even have to plan anything in advance. Just roll the dice and see where they take you – nothing like a bit of spontaneity to make a great anniversary.
Let’s just hope they don’t roll “go to bed early with no dinner”.
Fujifilm Quicksnap disposable camera
If there’s one thing I don’t do enough of when I’m at a noteworthy event, it’s taking pictures and I’m sure that some of you out there are exactly the same.
Tell me to take snaps on my phone and I’ll forget to even open the thing, but give me an old school camera and you can count on me to get some of the best pics of the evening – that’s where the Fujifilm Quicksnap comes in. Use the disposable camera to document the evening, not knowing what the pics look like before getting them developed the following day.
It’s a magical idea that’ll create memories you can look back on forever – all thanks to your thirteenth-anniversary gift idea!
Heart-shaped waffle maker
What’s for breakfast darling? How about waffles? Sounds good to me.
Then boom, crack out the heart-shaped waffle maker and you’re off to the very best start to the day you could have hoped for. There are very few things that aren’t great as a heart shape, but when it comes to sweet food, it’s pretty difficult to beat.
Waffles are winner in my book – a perfect thirteenth-anniversary gift.
Plush heart-themed slipper socks
Sticking with the heart theme, we’re looking towards slipper socks for the next gift that’ll put you in the good books for your wedding anniversary.
Everyone needs socks and slipper socks are the very best of the bunch, get a few pairs of these and you’ll never go back to a normal sock ever again. Combine them with a heart theme and you’re killing two birds with one stone, keeping toes warm and saying “I love you” all at the same time.
Scratch-off world map poster
If you and your partner love to travel, why not make a visual note of the countries you’ve been to and the ones you’re wanting to visit with a scratch-off world map poster.
Similar to the gambling cards, a scratch-off world map lets you do exactly what it says on the tin – scratch-off the countries you’ve visited in an effort to try and uncover them all. It’s cheap, thoughtful and a great way to get your trip planning off to a great start.
Indoor smores maker
Last, but by no means least, comes the indoor smores maker, letting you bring everyone’s favorite campfire snacks into the comfort of their own front room.
The perfect 13th-anniversary gift – crowd around the indoor campfire, roast a couple of marshmallows and roll the metal date dice (from earlier) to see what your night has in store. Count me in.
