I saw this graphic out there to promote the new Meryl Streep/Tommy Lee Jones/Steve Carell film and thought it is pretty accurate (at least in my case!).  DH and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary, and we didn't do anything.  I'm not complaining because we're a pretty low-key couple.  I would be irritated if he ever gave me a new vacuum or household appliance as an anniversary gift, though.

Have your anniversary gifts evolved over the years?

Congrats on your 10 years together,
DH & I will be celebrating our 33rd in August ::gasp::
We don't/haven't done much either really.
Usually out to dinner sometimes.
Our 25th we did go on a cruise with the kids & renewed our vows.
Now that was about the bestest time ever :smileyhappy:

DH and I are coming up on our 16th anniversary.

We don't do gifts. We go out to dinner; a couple of years ago DH got me a card which I still have on my desk at home. :smileywink:

We tend more toward planning "experiences" together, whether it be a nice vacation or a day at the local museum.

Congratulations on 33 years!

The cruise and vow renewal for your 25th sounds like a lot of fun. What kind of cruise was it? I've never been, but would love to go. Our ILs took an Alaskan cruise a couple of years ago, and it looked gorgeous.

I love the idea of planning experiences together vs. gifts. DH and I should do that more often.

We usually go out for dinner and buy some joint thing. This year I would like my fave wedding photo put on a canvas.

The best part of our anniversary is the romantic conversation about our love, our dreams and our future.
