Anniversaries of weddings and gifts go hand in hand on these momentous occasions. They represent exciting moments for the celebration and renewal of the couple’s marriage commitments. When you think of giving gifts to your spouse or a partner you love, as the saying goes, it’s the thought that counts.

However, when you consider that gifts generate enthusiasm and joy, it is worth spending time looking for something special to give during anniversaries. You know the nature of people, how they react when the gift is precious and valuable. Commonly, people give gifts based on the anniversary theme.

Take, for example, the theme of the first wedding anniversary that is paper. A suitable gift can be a book of the best seller or a carefully selected wedding anniversary card. Or you can combine the modern and the traditional. Samples of traditional and modern gift combinations are brightly colored cotton napkins and coffee cups and saucers for the second anniversary of the theme of cotton and porcelain. A set of beer glasses with embossed leather coasters for the theme of the third anniversary of leather. Crystal or glass is another sample gift combination.

For the fifth anniversary, the traditional theme is wood, for the tenth it is tin, for the 25th, it is silver and gold for the 50th and so on. It would be helpful if you are familiar with all the themes of the anniversary, including the traditional and modern gift guide, as a gift tag.

The concept in the delivery of anniversary gifts is governed by these key rules originated by Mrs. Emily Post many years ago. Many customs and traditions have evolved from that moment to the present. Nowadays, gifts based on the modern list guide or a combination of the traditional and the modern are becoming the social trend in the delivery of anniversary gifts.

Indeed, it is expected that gifts from the first to the tenth anniversary are less expensive in value than gifts for the last years of marriage, especially the occasions of silver and gold wedding. Keep in mind to inject some originality, creativity and art into the presentation and packaging. The foundation should be to give an exciting and memorable gift. There are so many options to choose from if you will only take the time to plan ahead and make a short list of possible gifts.

Wedding anniversaries and gifts are special for married couples and become more meaningful and enjoyable when friends and families share with their love, joy and excitement at the consideration and remembrance of these important celebrations.
