First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes … the sometimes stressful task of choosing the perfect anniversary gift. But according to Elaine Swann, one of the nation’s most well-recognized lifestyle and etiquette experts, finding the perfect present can be as simple as being a good listener.
“The best approach is choosing a gift based on what you know they will like and enjoy versus what you think they should have,” says Swann. “It helps to select a more meaningful gift which will, in essence, make you a better gift giver.”
