Anniversary Presents - The Right and the Wrong

Author: Administrator
Because we unfortunately live in a world where half the people that get married end up getting divorced, you have even more reason to celebrate the success of healthy marriages each year. The best way to do this is through buying anniversary gifts.

The most ideal presents you can buy a married couple on their anniversary goes back to tradition. Each year they have been married designates a particular type of gift.

This really is the classic way to go about your present buying because it shows the couple that you respect their marriage and are doing so through your gift giving. The only problem is that not that many people know what the proper gifts are these days.

If you want to give anniversary presents that follow tradition, then you need to start with the first anniversary, which is traditionally a paper present.

Obviously you will not just give out a piece of blank paper, so you will want to do something such as a gift certificate or travel vouchers. If you skip a few years ahead to the fifth wedding anniversary, you will want to make your present wooden. This is an easy one because so many shops and boutiques carry products made of many types of wood.

To continue following tradition to mark the anniversary, you should make your tenth wedding anniversary present tin. This is really one of the most traditional gifts you can get a married couple to mark this landmark. It is great to follow tradition because it helps remind the couple why they got married so many years ago.

Year fifteen is where you can start to get creative with the gift you give because it is the year for crystal. You can go with something larger like a crystal bowl or you can get a small crystal figurine. Just make sure it is a present the couple will use and appreciate.

For the 20th, your gift should be China. Next in line for your traditional anniversary presents is silver for their 25th year the couple has been together. For the 30th year, you will want your gift to be pearl. The next milestone is coral.

Year 40 gets ruby, while 45 gets sapphire. The 50th is gold, while the 75th is diamond.

Because some of these milestones are not reached by as many couples as in times past, it is important to show your respect and honour for the couple by choosing traditional gifts on each anniversary.
