Anniversary Gift Ideas

Did you realise there are suggested gifting themes for each year? In the 1920s, Emily Post, an American writer, came up with a list of anniversary themes in a book titled “Etiquette”. More recently the themes have been given a refresh.

Anniversary gift is a representation of the couple’s marriage strengthening over the years and each gift gradually increases in both substance and value.

Here’s the full list of traditional and modern wedding anniversary gifts by year. We hope this will help you find the perfect gift for your other half!
