What To Write In An Anniversary Card To Your Husband

Media Banner

Time flies when you’re in love! Another anniversary means another year together with the world’s best husband—yours!

It also means sending a card that captures everything you want to express on this important day. You talk to him all the time, but it can still be tricky to come up with the perfect anniversary wish to a husband from his wife. Whether it’s a big milestone anniversary or one of the in-between years, it’s important to celebrate not only the man you love, but also the love you two share.

Here are some idea-starters to get your pen moving in the right direction for anniversary messages to your husband:

  • We make a great team.
  • You’re my best friend.
  • I love the life we’ve made.
  • We’re so good together.
  • You’re the man of my dreams.
  • I love your kisses.
  • You’re smart, kind, and funny.
  • You understand me like no one else.
  • I look forward to every day with you.
  • You’re an amazing husband.
  • Happy Anniversary to my husband.
  • To the man I’d say yes to again.

Remember to think about your man in your anniversary note to your husband

Tell your husband what you love about him. Is it his sense of humor? His intellect? His dashing good looks? What sets your hubby apart from all the rest? From being a good father, to being the funny guy who can always crack you up, to being a hard-worker, to being a best friend and support, every guy likes to hear they are doing a good job.

And think about the love

Tell your husband what your relationship means to you. Tell him how in-love you feel, how he understands you and knows you like no one else, or how you know he is the only guy for you. Share some of your favorite memories with him and everything you’re looking forward to doing together in the future.

No matter what you write in your anniversary message for him, your husband will love hearing the words that come from your heart.
