The first rule for successful boyfriend anniversary cards is not to use glitter or confetti.

Detail your card to match your boyfriend’s personality. You probably know your boyfriend better than almost anyone else! So what is it, besides you, that really captures your boyfriend’s passion? This should be simple for you to figure out. What does your boyfriend spend his time doing when he is not focused on you? What are his hobbies?
... this is actually something you can use to show him that you know that he is an avid fan and that you accept it.
Many women will find the answer is sports. Though you probably don’t want your boyfriend being focused on sports on your anniversary, this is actually something you can use to show him that you know that he is an avid fan and that you accept it.
Find a sports-related card, or order a custom card, or create your own that has his favorite sports team or personality on it. Now this is a card that your boyfriend will have no trouble setting on his mantle or coffee table for all to see.
"... you’ll be my hero for life."
So what should you write on the inside? Here is one really fun idea! However, it will only work if your boyfriend was involved in sports as a child, in high school, college, or plays now. If you fashioned the card as above, attach a photo of your boyfriend playing sports to the inside of the card next to the special message.
If your card is designed for the Indianapolis Colts and his favorite player is Peyton Manning, one very cute thing that you could write inside your boyfriend’s anniversary card is: “Peyton Manning may be your sports hero, but you’ll be my hero for life.” When attached to a picture of your boyfriend in all his sport glory, this is something that he will always relish, and will never tuck away.
You can no doubt fashion this simple idea around anything that your boyfriend is passionate or fanatic about. You can even take it a step further and actually make the card’s envelope yourself. Make a collage of all your boyfriend’s achievements. Use photos, news clippings, or copies of awards and fashion them into the card’s envelope. This is a surefire way to grab his attention!
