Monthsaries? Monthaversaries. Monthaversary. Monthly anniversaries. It’s a new thing. Young, ok, very young, couples celebrating their relationship months as they go by. Silly, kid stuff, right?
This is the thing though — we celebrate a lot of things. Random holidays. Important milestones. Annual cheesecake day. Sometimes though, it feels as if what matters most becomes insignificant. The first to get cut on the budget spreadsheet.
How about now. What’s most worth your effort? What’s in front of you? Who’s new in your life? ….New neighbor? Bestie have a baby and coming up for air? New favorite employee been killing it? Celebrate that stuff.
Doesn’t sound so silly now, does it?
We have carefully curated an official guide. Scoop’s official Spring 2021 Monthsary Gift Guide has arrived:
One month together and the scents are intoxicating. It’s a connection you can’t deny. The candle collections at Blackhawk Hardware, Bedside Manor, Neiman Marcus, Onward Reserve, and Abode are hard to beat. One for your place. One for their place. Two more for you. Light the flames. Start something beautiful.
And don’t forget the luxe matches…Abode for these right here.
That moment a friend becomes a bestie. Put one foot in front of the other. Get matching kicks custom painted by SR Customs. No ordinary friend kinda love like sneaker love.
Don’t leave him out. These suede loafers coordinate.
Two months is when you actually help him with his entire situation. Onward Reserve is head-to-toe cute-guy vibe. Go for it. Make him yours.
Or are you thinking dress-him-up? These bowties are perfect level preppy. Laura Park’s selection here.
Margarita? Champagne? Flavored water? Know a mama needing a beverage after the new baby? At about 3 months, enough with the diapers and onesies drop-offs — hand her a new Corkcicle tumbler or mug from Blackhawk Hardware. In fact, she needs one of these SPA-at-home kits from Bedside Manor as well. Save her. And throw these Blessing Beads in for good measure. Bless that new mama.
New frames for new baby is another great option. These above from Laura Park can be found in-store. Bedside Manor for a selection of silver frames that will have you gifting yourself one or three as well.
This vintage barware for mimosas or freshly squeezed OJ. Abode for this exact morning-after look.
Two words: Pillow fight. This headboard pillow is our new obsession. And for love of all things — the more pillows the better, right? LeighDeux for the best 5 months celebrated.
Someone like no other? The all-knowing Paper Skyscraper has options easily grouped together making shopping for something original… easy. His. Hers. Done. Something for him:

Get your hands dirty. And whatever else. Indoor planting skills? New smoker out back and not sure how to make your way? Blackhawk Hardware has the tools. Indoor plants in all different sizes and smoking gloves. 6 months in and you guys are ready. Learn some things.
Or maybe you know exactly. These orchid earrings. Done.
7 months and feeling fortunate? Nieman Marcus for the Ram Roberto Coin bracelet. Get branded.
New neighbors that you can finally meet? Quarantine was the excuse but now it’s time for that welcome. These serving pieces from Neiman Marcus make up for your belated hello. Without question. Love Plate. Salad Servers. Bowl. All linked.
Or these acrylic beauties from Abode. Make an impression.
These are another great option from Laura Park. Your new neighbors won’t have anything quite like these. In store only.
That season of the relationship where things can get comfortable. Shake things up while keeping them the same. Fun cereal-flavored coffee. And a great book. Onward Reserve for something to keep him in bed…
Tumblers bedside. Always.
What do you know about Karma? It sometimes bites you in the ass. Paid your Karma debt? Karma number 10 means you have paid and are now free. Love karma debt free while wearing these. Good luck.
Approaching the one year mark and it’s time to observe full compatibility mode. Official road trip time. These Laura Park cosmetic bags ($28 & $37) are a must-have travel accessory. Fill his weekender with new shave and beard-prep supplies from BlackHawk Hardware & Onward Reserve. He secretly likes a lot of product.
A year makes it sound so regular. TWELVE months sounds deserving. We think a collaboration like that should be celebrated with a trip and a gift. Gift these vintage repurposed earrings to yourself or send a hint. Full beach trip with this cooler and matching shades. Full celebrate mode.
Leave a little something on their bedside table. Unlucky 13? Not with us helping. Leave a love note or a sweet sentiment from Bedside Manor. He gets a decanter from Neiman Marcus. It’s practical. He’ll love it.
These are cool. For his side. And that’s okay. Onward Reserve for these.
You’ve made it this far. Take notes. A love note even. $275
These love rings and Gucci watch from Neiman Marcus are our top picks for Monthsary opulence. Links in pictures.
24 carat baby. You’ve arrived. Make a statement.
