30 Anniversary Letters
How To Write An Anniversary Letter?
An anniversary letter is not about merely wishing your partner a happy wedding anniversary; it’s about telling them how much you love them. There is no sure-shot way to write an anniversary letter. All you need to do is think of the person you love, and pour out your honest feelings. However, to make it extra special, here are a few things to keep in mind while writing the letter.
- Talk about the magical moment you met each other, and pen down your feelings, reminiscing about that time.
- Thank them for all that they have done for you, and mention why you are grateful or feel lucky to have them as your partner.
- Mention and make them remember all the sweet memories you had in your married life.
- Talk about what makes you proud of them; you can talk about their professional excellence or dedication towards the family.
- Write in simple language, and as though you are talking with them.
- To leave a lasting impression, you may try and include a few inside jokes that only you both know.
- Praise your partner’s traits that you love the best and tell them why.
- End the letter with a promise of the future and add a meaningful note.
Once you are done writing the letter, read it once again; if you are happy with the outcome, sign and seal it. You may also include a gift along with the letter or think of a romantic way to deliver it to your partner.

3. Dear (Name)
Hurray! It is our first anniversary! Congratulations to us for successfully surviving a year together (just kidding). Spending the past 365 days with you has been amazing. This is what I always imagined being married to you would be like. I appreciate that I can be my true self with you.
You are my constant support and cheerleader, and without you, I would have never achieved my goals in such a short span. My friends tease me that I look more cheerful and happy now; that’s what you did to me, darling! I’ve planned a sweet surprise for us, so come home early. Until then, miss me because I miss you much. Once again, a happy anniversary!
4. Dear Hubster,
I still remember walking around you at the mall, just so you could notice me! Your one smile, one glance used to make my day. I was one among those girls who fell for you, but I am the luckiest of all for being able to call you mine. Although you get a lot of female attention, you never gave me a chance to doubt your loyalty.
It amazes me how you can figure out the sadness behind my smiles and remember all the minute details about me. I always wonder what I did to deserve you. I guess the gods must have been pleased with me. On this special day, I am writing this letter to tell you how blessed I am to be your partner. I hope our love stays alive and prospers with each passing year.
Lots of love,
5. Dear (Name)
From being my best friend to my life partner, you have been my rock through thick and thin. On this anniversary, I want to tell you how lucky I am to have married my best friend. You always gave me my space and never tried to change me. You believed in my dreams and encouraged me to chase them. I have always received unconditional love from you, and that is all I want for the rest of my life.
Darling, it’s been ______ years we have known each other, and still, your love for me is the same. I cannot tell you how happy I am to experience such unconditional love. We have shared many amazing adventures, and I cannot wait to start another adventure with you. Cheers to our friendship.
Happy Anniversary, Best Friend!
Your loving wife,
6. Hey, Handsome!
Ten years! It feels like it was only yesterday that you and I got married! The memories of our first meeting are still fresh in my mind. Do you remember the day we bumped into each other at the coffee shop? Someone spilled coffee on my books, and I misunderstood and started shouting at you? But, you just smiled and tried to calm me down. I didn’t stop until the waiter explained the situation. God! I was so embarrassed then. But, I am glad the incident happened, else I would have missed meeting an amazing person.
I know, at times, I can be a handful, and you are the only person in this entire world who can handle me. How do you remain so calm and patient? Well, that is one trait I’ve wanted to learn from you. You are an amazing dad and an even greater son-in-law; the way you take care of my parents amazes me every single time. Thank you for being there for me and shaping me into the person I am today.
Once again! A Very Happy Anniversary!
7. Hello Dear,
Happy 25th anniversary! Can you believe it’s already 25 years since our special day? How time flies! I know I had never written a letter to you, but I am doing it now to mark our silver jubilee. When I sat to write down this letter, all those memories flashed in my mind; some were happy, and some were sad, but let me tell you, you have made it all worth it, and I wouldn’t trade this life for anything else.
We have such a beautiful and fulfilling life together and the two most amazing children who make us proud by upholding the values we taught them. Looking back, I can only thank you for all the good times we had. Thank you for giving me such a beautiful life.
And the best part! Now that we have fulfilled almost all of our responsibilities, it is time to create new memories for ourselves. Check out the nightstand near our bed! I’ll be home in an hour. I am so excited for us!
Happy Anniversary, Love!
Your loving wife,
8. Dear Hubby,
Happy first anniversary! I cannot believe it has already been 365 days since we got married. I guess we were too busy having fun and lost track of time. First of all, thank you for being the most amazing husband; you opened up a whole new world for me. I never thought I could fall madly in love, but it happened, and now I cannot imagine my life without you.
You are a constant thought on my mind, and most of the time, I find myself wondering what you might be doing! This is the reason behind my countless calls throughout the day! Call me crazy, but I cannot help it! I miss you so much.
In this one year, you taught me what patience and compromise are. I have no shame in admitting that you brought out the best in me. Now, I have a whole new perspective on life, and with you by my side, I feel I can achieve anything. I know I gave you hard times, but I get by because I am cute, and you love me. Jokes apart, this year, I will try to be more understanding and less stubborn. Also, I have planned a little something for us tonight, so come home quickly.
Once again, A Happy Anniversary!
Your loving wife,
9. Dear (Name)
Happy 50th Anniversary!
This is a huge milestone in our lives, and I cannot imagine sharing it with anyone but you. Our journey as a couple started 50 years ago on this very day. I remember the sparkle in your eyes when I walked towards you down the aisle, and after all these years, I can still feel that same magic. Thank you for showering me with unconditional love all these years.
All those ups and downs in life have only brought us closer and made us realize that no hurdle is too big to cross when you have the right person beside you. When I look at our happy family, I feel proud for what we have achieved, and I should say it wouldn’t have been possible without you.
Thank you for all the dedication and sacrifices. For this special occasion, I have planned a surprise trip to the same place where we got married! Let’s relive that magical moment once again.
Your loving wife,
10. Dear Husband,
I thank God for blessing me with a life partner like you. You never miss an opportunity to charm me. Your intellect, personality, and sense of humor have always amazed me. You are not only a great husband, but also an amazing dad. I am sure our children will grow up with compassion and a kind heart just like you.
You never let anything come in between the kids and me, and thank you for making us your priority every single time. I know you sacrificed many things for us, and the best part is you did it all with a smile. I still remember that day when you left your important meeting to make it to our child’s first school play. You always lent a hand in the household work and in bringing up the kids. My Superman! Thank you for everything. I am blessed to have you by my side. I hope our love grows stronger with each passing year.
Love you to bits,
11. Dear (Nickname)
Happy First Anniversary!
On this special day, I would like to tell you a little secret! I hope it makes you happy.
I still remember the first day I saw you. You wore a blue t-shirt and cream-colored shorts. Well, it was love at first sight. My heart fluttered when I saw you, and the voice in my head nudged me to talk to you. I slipped into a daydream of getting married to you; silly me, no? By the time I came to my senses, you had left. I thought that was the last time I would see you. I felt sad and disappointed.
But, I guess destiny had other plans! A few days later, I saw you across the street. I couldn’t believe my eyes; you were moving boxes into the house. You and I became neighbors! It was the happiest day of my life. Slowly, we became friends and hung out, and finally got married. I hope you will forgive me for keeping this from you till now. I am glad that I married the man of my dreams.
12. Dear (Name)
On this day, ten years ago, we made the best decision of our lives. I always knew we would make a good couple, but never thought we could become best friends too. Maybe that is the secret to our lasting relationship. Although we both knew each other only for a year before marriage, we became close and inseparable. We have no secrets and share minute details of each other’s lives. I am lucky to have a husband with whom I can share anything without the fear of being judged.
We have faced many ups and downs, and thanks to your love and understanding, we overcame every roadblock with grace. Honey! I know when we turn old, your love for me would be the same, and that’s the most precious thing in this world. Thank you for giving me such an amazing life.
Happy Anniversary, Darling!
Your loving wife,
13. Dear Husband,
Happy Second Wedding Anniversary!
As we cross this important milestone, I wanted to do something special for the man who has been my everything. So, here is a letter in which I pour out all my feelings.
If anyone asked me four years ago when I was getting married, I would snort and tell them that marriage and I don’t go together. I always had my apprehensions about marriage and never really envisioned myself walking down the aisle. But then you came into my life. You were different, you didn’t make big promises, never pretended to be someone else, and that changed everything.
I know I gave you a hard time and took my time to say yes, but not once did you get irritated and give up on me. I had built concrete walls around my heart, and boy, am I glad you broke in! Do you know what made me fall in love with you? It was ‘I will not change you.’ Thank you for letting me be my exotic self.
14. Dear (Name)
This was the day when luck shined on me and paved the way for my happily-ever-after. Before I met you, I was shy, timid, and directionless; I had many insecurities, thought I was too ugly, and had given up on finding love. But, what happened on that day during our first date changed my life forever. When we first met, you looked directly into my eyes, and we talked and talked until the restaurant guys begged us to leave.
I still remember having those butterflies in my stomach when you first kissed me! Though I have told you all these things a million times, it doesn’t seem enough. Baby, I am truly among the luckiest women to find a perfect man. I am who I am because of you; you gave me the confidence to do something in my life, and you gave me the strength to fight all the odds and win. You even gave up on your promotion to stay at home to look after our child and gave me space and time to fulfill my dream. I am blessed to have a husband like you. Thank you for all that you have done for me. Cheers to a happy anniversary and many more to come!
Love you loads,
15. Dear (Name)
Hey Partner! Happy Wedding Anniversary!
This year is pretty special for both of us as we welcomed our baby girl into our lives. She is lucky to get the most amazing dad in the world. Honey, thank you for all the love and care you have showered on me. I am really blessed to have you as my life partner.
Even though your work schedule is hectic, you took out time to read all the pregnancy books and talked to people to find out what was good for the baby and me. I don’t know what I would have done without you. God must be really pleased with me as he has sent you both into my life. I am sure we will give our little one a fantastic life, and I am glad to be doing it with you.
With lots of love,
Anniversary Letters For Her
She is the perfect wife and your best friend. She made your life meaningful by just being in it. Thank her for her dedication and love with a lovely anniversary letter.
16. Dear (Name)
On this special day, I would like to tell you something that has been in my heart for all these years. You are the most understanding, kind-hearted woman I have ever met. After knowing you, I understood what true love is; you have made many sacrifices for our family and have brought it together.
You always go out of your way to make me happy, like the time when I invited my friends over without giving you a heads up. Instead of being angry with me, you cooked delicious food and were the best host. Thank you for being the most amazing wife. The kids and I have planned a little surprise for you. Hope you like it.
17. My Dear Wife,
Happy First Wedding Anniversary!
I can’t believe it has already been one year since we got married. The memories of our first meeting are still fresh in my memory! You wore a white dress and looked like an angel. You came in with your friends and sat at the table next to me. You were playing with your hair and talking with your friends. God! How beautiful you looked! I could smell your perfume, and it drove me crazy.
It was love at first sight, and I couldn’t take my eyes off you. Baby, that day, I made a promise that I would do whatever it takes to keep you happy. Getting to see your face the first thing in the morning every day is the most amazing thing in my life, and this one year together has been like a dream. Let us create some more beautiful memories. Love you!
Your loving husband,
18. Dear (Name)
I am glad that I found you. There might be no other woman who can handle me like you do. Words are not enough to tell you how happy I am that you are mine. When I wake up each morning and find you sleeping peacefully next to me, it gives me a sense of pride that I did something right.
You are not only a great wife, but also an excellent mother; our children are growing up with good values. Thank you for being there for all of us. Honestly, I don’t know what we all would have done without you. On this special day, I want you to take your day off and let me take you on a relaxing trip to your favorite spa. Get ready soon, darling! Love you and happy anniversary!
19. Dear Wifey,
This letter is to that girl who stole my heart during high school, became my best friend in college, and is now my loving wife. We’ve known each other for 16 years, and we have seen a lot of life together. In all the ups and downs, it was you that made me hold on and gave me the confidence to press on. Thank you for being my rock.
People say that when a couple knows each other for a long time, their relationship becomes monotonous, but I would say they do not know the amazing feeling of marrying your best friend. You never judged me for my mistakes and always encouraged me to become a better person. I could never imagine spending my life with anyone else. Love you so much, baby.
Your loving husband,
20. Dear Wife,
You have added immense joy, bliss, and happiness to my life. I discovered what true love is in our years of of being together. You were there for me in my every pain and gain, and I never want our love to end. On this anniversary, I appreciate all that you do for our family each and every day.
There are so many moments in our married life that made me love you even more. Thank you for tolerating me and loving me unconditionally. This year, I have made a promise to myself that I will fulfill all your wishes and support your dreams. Open your wardrobe and check out my surprise for you.
Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart! I love you to eternity.
Your loving husband,
21. Dear (Name)
I know I am not the most loving and caring husband, but you definitely are the most loving wife any man could ask for. After being married to you for 15 years, I can say that I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else but you. All these years, you have shown me what unconditional love is.
On this special day, I am writing this letter to tell you how much you mean to me. I am very lucky to have you in my life. You understand the words behind my silence and the sadness behind my smile. You are my lady luck! As a token of my appreciation, let me help you set up your bakery — Yes, I remember it was your dream. Go, baby, conquer the world! I am there for you.
With lots of love,
22. Dear (Name)
I know I had been a miser when it came to expressing my feelings and love for you, but thank God you picked it up from my actions. I know how much you wish I would be more vocal about our love. So, today on our anniversary, I am writing this letter to fulfill your wish.
Where do I start? You may find it hard to believe, but you filled my heart with happiness from the day I met you. I might not have told you this, but you are the most beautiful woman I have ever met. The day you opened up your heart to an orphan boy, I was assured that you were the one for me. Thank you for choosing me as your life partner and for making me experience the joy of humanity and generosity.
Happy Anniversary, My Angel!
Your loving husband,
23. Dear (Name)
Happy Wedding Anniversary, Dear!
You might be thrilled looking at this letter! Yes, it is true, your husband has written a letter to you on our anniversary. You might have thought that this would never happen, but well, here I am fulfilling all your wishes.
When I met you, you were a strong and independent woman who single-handedly built a business. But, after all these years, I can tell you that you are also a gentle and kind-hearted woman. Many people might get intimidated by your fierce outward demeanor, but I am privileged to have known and experienced the tender and lovable side of you. You manage both home and office so well! I wonder how you do it. Thank you for being a role model for our daughter and an amazing wife to me. Keep rocking, baby!
24. Dear Wife,
Can you believe it! It has been ten years since we got married. Yes! Ten incredible years, I must say. Though we had our fair share of troubles, I have never wanted anyone other than you by my side. You have not only loved me unconditionally, but also made me a better man. Before meeting you, I was directionless, but now, I have a stable job, home, and a lovely family. All these couldn’t have been possible without you.
Thank you for being my friend, guide, and philosopher — I would have been lost without you. I promise to love you and take care of you till my last breath. Happy anniversary, dear.
25. Dear (Name)
Happy Anniversary, Dear!
As they say, “The destination doesn’t matter, the journey does.” Let me add that the companion throughout the journey matters the most. I am privileged to have you as my life partner; you have made our marriage an incredible journey with lots of surprises and amazing moments.
When I look back, all I can find is a woman who is fiercely in love with her family and is ready to do anything for them. Thank you for being there for the kids and me. You are such a down-to-earth woman and always believed in equality. No matter how bad things might have gotten, you always stood by me. Thank you so much! Let’s continue to make more memories together.
Love you always,
26. Dear (Name)
I wanted to give you the best gift for our anniversary and spent days searching for it. I just couldn’t find the ideal gift that can express my true feelings for you. So, I decided to pen this letter.
Darling, thank you for entering my life and making it a paradise. I still remember our dating days when we used to look into each other’s eyes and talk about growing old together. Now, after 20 years together, we are still in love and happy with each other, and I hope we keep this precious bond alive forever.
When we got married, we did not have much money. Remember? We slept in a tent on our honeymoon! Though it was not the most comfortable vacation, I still remember the words you told me that day “Dear! Your love makes any situation better.” Thank you for being so loving and understanding. It means a lot to me.
Once again, a Happy Anniversary, Dear!
Love you loads,
27. Dear wife,
This year, I wanted to do something special for our anniversary, so I am writing this letter to tell you a few things. Darling, thank you so much for choosing me as your life partner. There is not one day when I do not thank God for sending you into my life. You are the most wonderful human being with a big and kind heart.
The way you handle situations with grace always amazes me; how can you be so patient and calm all the time? Our life is no bed of roses, but you overcome all the difficulties with a smile and never let it touch our relationship.
I still remember when we used to sit on our patio sipping coffee and having deep conversations. Ah! Those were the golden days. We haven’t done that for ages, have we? So, today, I have arranged a candlelight dinner for just the two of us in the same old patio. Come and enjoy the treat, my queen. You deserve all the best things in life.
28. Dear wife,
I am happy to share this special day with the love of my life. Darling, thank you for coming into my life and showering me with unconditional love. Before meeting you, I never thought I would ever find true love. You never expected anything from me, but gave me everything! Such selfless love is truly a thing to treasure forever.
Thank you, my angel, for letting me understand the true meaning of love. Once again, I wish you a very happy anniversary.
Love you forever,
29. Dear (Name)
A Very Happy Anniversary!
These years went by like a dream. I still remember the tough times we went through. I lost my job and was drowned in depression, but you did not leave my hand; instead, you supported me and encouraged me to get back on my feet. Now, if I can run a successful business, it was all possible because you were there for me when I had hit rock bottom.
Thank you, darling, for being the reason behind all the good things in my life. On this special day, I wanted to show you how much you mean to me. So, come home soon; there is a whole day of sweet surprises waiting for you.
30. Dear (Name)
Do you know what makes me happy? Your smile. The thought that my wife is happy in life gives me the strength and confidence to accomplish anything. When I married you, I made a promise to myself that I will never let anything bring tears to your beautiful eyes. I vow to take care of you until my last breath.
Darling, I know I get grumpy at times, but that does not mean I don’t love you. I hope that you will always be able to see through my rough exterior and know how deep my love for you really is. Today, as we celebrate our 15th anniversary, I am writing this letter to tell you how much you mean to me. Stay with me, sweetheart, and let’s grow old together.
Love you always,
Writing a letter might seem passé, but nothing can replace the joy of receiving a letter written especially for you. One need not be a poet or a writer to write an anniversary letter; you just need to close your eyes, think of your partner, and write all those feelings in your own words. We are sure your partner will be thrilled and treasure it until eternity.
