Choosing the perfect anniversary gift

by webdev

November 09, 2011

A wedding anniversary is a time to reflect on your love and remember all of the special times you have shared with your husband or wife. This romantic occasion calls for a meaningful gift, which is where many people can get tripped up.

You want to give something that represents just how special your spouse is to you, but sometimes it can be hard to quantify your love with a material object. There have long been guidelines for this type of gift giving.

According to Hallmark, tradition has it that couples should give each other gifts containing certain materials depending on the number of years of marriage they are celebrating. According to tradition, a first wedding anniversary calls for a gift containing paper - many couples choose elegant stationary, while others may create a scrapbook.

A second wedding anniversary calls for a gift of cotton and the third for leather. The list goes on until later anniversaries of 50 and 60 years. The 50th wedding anniversary calls for a gift containing gold, and the 60th for diamonds.

Tradition dictates that anniversary flowers are a good gift for the fourth year of marriage, but many people would probably agree that flowers for anniversary gifts are a great accompaniment to any anniversary gift.
