Finding the ideal gift for your partner can be a whole lot easier said than done.
Whether it be because they want you to ‘surprise’ them, follow some kind of gift theme or simply because they haven’t dropped as many hints this year as they normally do, if you’re struggling for inspiration, we’re here to help.
In this article, we will take a detailed look at some of the best anniversary gift ideas related to the world of sport – from tennis to football to golf to boules.
Whether your partner already has a particular hobby or interest that you can utilise, or if you’re simply trying to encourage them to become more active, we’ve got you covered.
Sport & spa day
If you’re celebrating a big anniversary, why not make it a year to remember by splashing the cash and heading out on a luxury spa day?
With a variety of country clubs and spas scattered around the country, finding your dream spa day is incredibly easy, providing both you and your partner with the ideal way to relax, rejuvenate and reminisce on all the wonderful years you’ve shared together.
Plus, by tying the day in with a sport they love – whether it be heading to the golf course, playing a game or two of tennis or enjoying a leisurely swim – you will be able to truly create a gift experience they won’t be able to forget for a long time.
While on the topic of playing sports you love, if they haven’t bought one for themselves already, a fitness watch can not only be a fantastic gift idea but it can also offer a great way of encouraging your partner to keep fit and healthy.
Whether it be a Fitbit, an Apple Watch or a Samsung Galaxy watch, these wearable devices will keep track of their step count during the day and provide them with a quick and easy way to stay on top of their workout routines.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for something a little more specialised, certain watches are actually designed with specific sports in mind.
From the SkyCaddie LX5 golf watch to the Garmin Fenix 6X Pro hiking smartwatch, if your partner is interested in a particular sport or hobby, purchasing a specialised watch could help them significantly upgrade the equipment they already have available.
With such a wide array of sporting events and activities being held on such a regular basis, why not bite the bullet and provide your partner with a day out they’ll never forget?
Say, for example, your husband has been a Manchester United football fan all his life but, due to work and life plans, he hasn’t been able to see them live for a number of years. Purchasing him tickets to watch his beloved team will provide him with an unforgettable experience and show how supportive and loving you are as his partner.
This logic also applies regardless of the event. Whether your partner is into cricket, golf, darts, pool, netball, rugby or tennis, if you rarely get the chance to splash the cash on seeing the sports you love, doing your research and buying tickets to events like these is a sure-fire way to leave a big smile across both of your faces.
Going one step further, if you’d rather give your partner the opportunity to actually try the sport they love for themselves, there are a wide variety of sport-related gift experiences to consider.
If, for instance, they are particularly into Formula 1, why not provide them with the opportunity to whiz around one of the famous racing tracks themselves? Or, alternatively, book them tickets to a show where they can get up close to the race cars themselves.
Whatever the type of sport they are interested in, there will be an incredible sporting experience you can buy to suit. From the adrenaline rush of indoor skydiving to the G-force of whizzing around in a rally car, do your homework and you’ll find it sooner than you think.
Enjoy a sporty anniversary
So, there you have it – some of the best gift ideas to purchase for sport-loving partners.
The key thing to do is to consider the sport, hobby or interest they are actually passionate about and then look for ideas from there.
That way, you will be able to identify the types of gifts that will either upgrade their sports equipment or provide them with an experience they will never be able to forget.
