It’s here! After many reader requests through the years, we’ve finally put together an Anniversary Gift Guide with both fabulous and thoughtful gifts! Our gift guide is sorted by anniversary themes but we’ve selected both modern and more traditional anniversary gift ideas that fit each year. Today we are highlighting some of our favorite ideas for years one through ten but we have gifts for years beyond that in our Anniversary Gift Guide!
We’ve found such beautiful gifts for the first ten years of marriage based on the “traditional” gift ideas.
1st Anniversary: Paper
2nd Anniversary: Cotton
3rd Anniversary: Leather
4th Anniversary: Linen
In the U.S., the traditional gift is flowers, but in the UK it is linen. We are going with the British since linens are a more permanent gift!
5th Anniversary: Wood
6th Anniversary: Iron
7th Anniversary: Copper
8th Anniversary: Bronze
9th Anniversary: Pottery
10th Anniversary: Aluminum
Stay tuned for another post filled with extra special gifts for milestone anniversaries like 25, 50 and 60 years or browse them in our Anniversary Gift Guide now.
Don’t forget: experience gifts and travel excursions make great anniversary presents as well! If you are taking your loved one a trip, be sure to see our top 10 travel gifts post.
