Anniversary gift ideas: Traditional or Modern
By: Monica Foth
Anniversary gift ideas can be either traditional or modern, whichever you choose. You will find that both are acceptable with the anniversary gift ideas within a prince range to suit to you.
When speaking of traditional anniversary gift ideas, there are only eight truly traditional gifts. They are paper, wood, tin, crystal, china, silver, gold and diamonds. A first anniversary gift is something of paper. This could be nice writing paper, a coffee-table book, fine art, a photo album or a framed picture.
Modern anniversary gift ideas include, as a first anniversary gift, clocks of any kind such as grandfather clocks, wristwatches, bedside alarms or cuckoo clocks. Examples of gifts for a tenth anniversary celebration are tin or aluminum (traditional) or diamond jewelry (modern). Quite a difference in value, as you can see! The good news is, as the years wear on, traditional and modern gift choices become the same. Anniversaries are the way we celebrate our love for each other and to mark the passing years we are together. An anniversary gift represents how we feel and when traditional gifts are chosen with care it sometimes helps to inspire us. Giving an anniversary gift to someone you love and care about shows them great appreciation for who they are.
