Quiz your beloved on their current favorite meme. (They might have inundated you with their favorite trending memes already; just look through your messages.)
then, hunt around for a mug with that same meme printed on it. Small shops or custom designers on E-commerce sites like Etsy have a large variety of meme mugs.
If you’re looking for something more meaningful, speak your love through a meme of your own. Find a cute love meme and customize a mug with it. this way, when your beloved has his morning cup of coffee, he’ll think of you.
2. A Meme-Captioned Photo
Did you know you can customize a picture with text and then either send it or print it out?
that’s right! You can make your very own meme. Make your own little text on photo project, perhaps using your favorite wedding picture.
You can either write your own short poem or find a favorite quote. This refreshes the picture and makes it more meaningful to you both. This is probably the most honest and endearing anniversary gift you can come up with.

Does your spouse love dogs?

The original “doge” was a Shiba Inu posted by a Japanese kindergarten teacher almost a decade ago.
Now, the “doge” meme can be purchased as a clothing patch, making it a loveable gift. Simply get a “doge” patch, and sew it onto your spouse’s favorite jacket or hoodie.

4. Emoji Pillow
