Wedding Anniversary Gifts

Wedding Anniversary Gifts

Each year marks another 365 days you have spent with your other half, and each year is another year symbolised by traditional and modern themed gifts.

Often we know the most common and the main anniversary gifts but every year has a different gift, sometimes a flower, a colour and a gemstone that is associated with them too. Although with the gemstone they are only associated with the marital years from 1 to 25 and then every 5th year up to the 60th anniversary.
