How To Find The Perfect Anniversary Gift
Every married couple looks forward to celebrating their special day. It gives them the chance to celebrate their relationship and swap tokens of love. My anniversary is coming up next month and I have been racking my brain for the perfect gift.
Are you struggling to think of a suitable gift for your partner? You shouldn’t have to think too hard, though. That’s because there are certain types of gifts that are given for each year of marriage. You can find the full list online, but in this blog post, I’ll run over some of the gifts that go with some of the significant anniversary years.
Anniversary Gift Guide By The Year
1st Wedding Anniversary
Paper is the gift traditionally given to celebrate the first year of marriage. But that doesn’t mean you have to give your spouse a pad of paper! You can be creative with how you interpret paper. For instance, some people buy their partner tickets to see their favorite band. Other cute ideas are diaries and notebooks. These two gifts go down especially well with people who use them in work, such as teachers and lawyers.
10th Wedding Anniversary
When you celebrating your 10th year of marriage, you will have to think of how you can incorporate tin into your gift. Tin may not be one of the most decorative items that you can give to someone, but there are plenty of ways you can turn it into a thoughtful present. One neat idea is to buy a photo frame made from tin that you can use to display a picture of the two of you.
25th Wedding Anniversary
How will the two of you celebrate being married for such a long period?! Luckily, silver is the traditional gift used to mark 25th anniversaries, so you should have plenty of ideas! One of the most obvious is, of course, jewelry. You might like to buy your husband some silver cufflinks. Hopefully, he will think along similar lines and buy you a gorgeous silver ring or necklace!
50th Wedding Anniversary
It takes a lot to get to your 50th! So you will no doubt want a big present that can mark this momentous occasion. The traditional gift for getting to this stage is gold, so jewelry is another obvious choice. However, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. For instance, a rose plant makes for the perfect golden wedding anniversary gift. Especially if it is a delicate golden color! Or a keepsake pen set.
60th Wedding Anniversary
Not many people get to their 60th wedding anniversary. So there is no wonder why there are no more traditional gift suggestions after this anniversary. Diamond is the gift of choice if you do get to your 60th year of marriage. You don’t have to break the bank to get an amazing diamond gift. Some specialist stores sell diamonds specifically for this special occaision at quite reasonable prices. Many couples like to swap jewelry that is studded with pretty diamonds.
No matter what anniversary you are celebrating, you will certainly be able to find something special for your partner. If you’re stuck for ideas, all the traditional gifts should help you!
