With big anniversaries comes big (gift) responsibilities.  After years together, you know your partner like nobody else, and while flowers/gadgets/insert-other-generic-gift-here are lovely to receive, they lack that personal touch. We think looking back on the good times is a stronger way to show the love, and our anniversary photo albums were made to do just that. So whether you’re one year into your relationship timeline, or coming up to 40 years of marriage, we’ve got the perfect anniversary photo book to celebrate.

For your 1st anniversary 

It’s not easy to trace where the ‘certain gifts for certain years’ practice came from, but we’re here for it. For one year together, it’s tradition to give a gift relating to ‘paper’. After 365 days together, your camera roll is probably filled with a whole lot of ‘firsts’ – like the first time meeting the in-laws, first trips away, and  your first time cooking together (congrats on surviving that). Our Little Moments Photo Book is the perfect book for celebrating those little moments that have made your 1st year together so great. 

The anniversary photo album for you: Little Moments

The smallest in our photo book collection, this album is perfect for your social media snaps. Upload your square-format photos straight from Instagram and create a mini montage of the good times (customised to perfectly reflect your 1-year-in relationship). 

For you 10th anniversary 

So, you’re coming up to 10 years together – the year of gifting ‘aluminum’. Instead of hunting out a metal-themed gift (we promise no one wants that), create a photo book with enough pages to capture your 10 years of good times. Have you traveled the world? Built a home together? Or made Friday night fish and chips your favourite tradition? Bring together your decade of snaps into a photo album that’s sure to get you both excited about the years still to come. Our suggestion? The Circle Window Cut Out. Find your favourite photo – tough, we know – and choose it as your front page. The book’s window cut out gives a sneak peek of what’s inside… happy memories and endless selfies, of course.

With its cut-out front cover, vibrant colour options, and premium paper, you can really make this book your own. If you and your partner have an archive of landscape photos from your travels, this book’s orientation will perfectly show them off. 

For your 20th anniversary

20 years together deserves huge celebration, so between the (inevitable) party planning and speech-writing, put your feet up and pull out your favourite photos together – you’ve got an anniversary photo album to create. As china is the traditional gift for a 20th anniversary, we’re leaning into ‘precious moments’ (instead of precious materials). It’s hard to narrow down your photo selection after 20 years together, so we’d suggest our Classic Collage Photo Book as your anniversary photo album. Include more of those epic moments together on the front cover and give it pride of place in your living room. Great for “remember that?” conversations with visitors.

Choosing the top photos from your 20 years together may sound tough, but with up to 100 pages to fill, there’s space for a lot of good times. Pick out your favourite nine or snap some new photos just for the cover. 

As for the china, you’d prefer a personalised mug anyway, right? 

For your 50th anniversary 

While your 50-years-together gift should probably be a medal, we’ve got something more sentimental (and a little less cheeky). 50 years deserves the best of the best. It’s a hallmark anniversary, your gold anniversary, so for a photo book that’s our best-in-class, create an A4 Lay Flat book with silver halide paper. See? It even sounds premium. This gold-standard book is ready to be filled with 50 years of joyous stories – photos and messages – and it’s a gift you’ll probably open daily for a mood-boost. 

The anniversary photo album for you: A4 Lay Flat Silver Halide

Our most premium photo book for extra special stories – we’re sure that after 50 years together you’ve got a few of those. Trust silver halide for exceptional detail, vibrant colour, and a very smug grin from you (the gifter). For the best in photo books, it has to be this one. 

There you have it. Just *some* of our epic photo book range for your anniversary gifting.. Whether it’s your 1st, 40th, or 60th anniversary, you’ll find it at Photobox. Check out our photo books range or our other photo books blogs now and celebrate your stories with Photobox.
