The Magical Things To Write In An Anniversary Card

To make your Anniversary card even more special it is good to add

  • The calendar year, because when it comes to looking back over their cards in years to come they will want to know which Anniversary it is from. e.g August 1990
  • Your favorite memory of the two of them or you both from the past year or if it's a big Anniversary reminisce with them on a memory from years ago.
  • Adding a photo of you and them in the inside cover of the card is also a very sweet thing to do and will show them just how much you mean to them.

Anniversary Quotes for your Card

We see a lot of Anniversary cards and it is really popular to add a classic quote to the card but the problem can be that your quote may be in a number of other cards. 

We do however have traditional quotes for Anniversary cards here.

The best idea is to keep it personal and write your own words or instead use the lyrics of a favorite song or artist that you know they love.

A shared favorite book is also a good resource for a quote and one that you know that they will recognise straight away.

Or your favorite movie.
