Good Things Come To Those Who Wait


  • This theme can be applied to anyone. It’s designed to focus on things that get better with age or just take a really long time to make.
  • This could be a great theme if you’re thinking of getting engaged or for an anniversary gift.
  • Activities: anything that showcases how beautiful older things can be (eg: a walk in an old growth forest, antiquing or a trip to the museum to see beautiful, old artifacts).
  • Dining/food and beverage options: give some thought to foods that take time to develop their flavour (eg: steakcheese). Even fermented foods like yogurt can work here. Don’t forget wine and aged alcohols like scotch and whiskey. If you’re looking for a night out that fits with this theme, consider a wine and cheese tasting or a nice steak dinner. 
  • Jewelrydiamonds can take millions of years to form and as a result they make a great gift for this theme.  Keep in mind that other gemstones like rubiesemeralds and sapphires would also fit here. 
  • Flowers/plants: anything that is known for its slow growth (eg: orchids, cacti). 
  • Other options: anything that could be classified as vintage or antique (eg: vintage cars-real or toy, furnituredishesclothing). 
  • Have a suggestion for this theme we haven’t covered here? Let us know and we’ll try to add it onto the list.
  • If you have an old blanket or quilt, you could wrap the gift in those.
  • Try using wrapping paper that has a vintage look to it.
  • Tie a small related item into the ribbon around the gift (eg: mini alcohol bottle).
  • Serve some wine and cheese with the presentation.
  • Use quotes or phrases that relate to your theme when you present the gifts or in your card. For example: 
    • Our love is one for ages. Happy anniversary!
    • Good things get better with age, including our love. Happy anniversary!
    • Can’t wait to celebrate with you on your birthday!
