How much does an anniversary gift cost?
Anniversary gifts are very capricious things. The rule that generally apply while buying an anniversary gift is that the budget of the gift should be directly proportional to the time you and your partner are in relation with each other. If you have started dating and this is the first anniversary celebration, you can start with a nice bouquet of roses say $5-10, or may a dine-out worth $20-70 would be appropriate.
Cost of an anniversary gift
The basic rule, as mentioned above which goes while buying an anniversary gift is that: the budget of the gift depends directly on the number of years the couple has spent with each other. The more time they have spent with each other, the more expensive the gift is ought to be! However, on an average, newer relationships tend to spend more than the older ones!
For people who are married, the cost of buying an anniversary gift ranges anywhere from $5 to $4000. But on an average, I’d have to say that the average price of an anniversary gift would have to be $100.
It’s better to say that while giving each other gift of love, no rules apply and hence no budgets apply. In general you can gift your partner a bouquet of roses that can cost around $5.
