Anniversary gifts and anniversary gift ideas
An anniversary is a wonderful occasion to celebrate! There are many anniversary gift ideas to choose from but, did you know that there are only eight truly traditional anniversary gifts? They are paper, wood, tin, crystal, china, silver, gold and diamonds.
Anniversary gifts are our way of celebrating our years together. They represent how we feel and when a traditional gift is chosen it is inspiring. Given to someone you love and care about shows them great appreciation for who they are. As paper is for a first anniversary, some traditional anniversary gift ideas may include special writing paper, a coffee-table book, fine art or a photo album; whereas, the modern choice could be clocks, leather or crystal. For a tenth anniversary the traditional gift item is tin or aluminum compared to the modern choice, which is diamond jewelry. There is quite a difference in value here, as you can see! The good news is, as the years go by both traditional and modern choices become the same.
An anniversary may be the perfect time for personalized gifts such as an engraved piece of silver, crystal or a ring. Engraving on a piece of sculpture or crystal, a brass plaque for a crystal clock, a personalized plate or an afghan with the embroidered names are just a few of the many choices for personalized gifts.
