Traditional anniversary gifts

By: Monica Foth

Successful traditional anniversary gifts should be romantic, long lasting and thoughtful. There are only eight truly traditional anniversary gifts. They are paper, wood, tin, crystal, china, silver, gold and diamond.

Traditional anniversary gifts for a first anniversary could be anything from a framed photo of you or the two of you together, to plane tickets or a gift certificate to his/her favorite store. For a fifth anniversary, which traditionally it is wood, you could take a hike in the woods together or plant a tree in your yard. For a tenth, make some homemade cookies to present in a tin or wrap any gift in tin foil. A 15th anniversary gift might be crystal glasses filled with champagne or wine or a Billy Crystal movie.

For 20th traditional anniversary gifts you might try cooking a homemade dinner on your best china or buying new china! A 25th anniversary, which is ‘silver’, a new watch, tie clip or a framed photo of you or both of you. For a golden anniversary, a CD collection of your favorite golden oldies may be a good idea or for something a little more extravagant, gold watch. And finally, for a diamond anniversary, 60th what other than diamond jewelry or Neil Diamond CDs.

If you are looking for some shopping inspiration there are hundreds of gift ideas for that special someone in your life, whether it is for a first anniversary or a sixtieth celebration. Following tradition has never been easier, or more fun!
