Anniversary Gift Ideas
Traditionally, each wedding anniversary is celebrated by giving a gift made from a different material. The first anniversary is symbolized with paper, and from there anniversary gifts become more precious or scarce to reflect the growing number of years a couple has remained together.
It isn't clear when the traditional list came into existence--it probably
evolved over time.
|Use the yearly theme to wrap your gift or trim it with any
item made from that year's material.
Go a step further and make the theme material a carrier for your gift.
-Tuck a ring in a leather wallet.
-Tie a cluster of roses together with a bracelet.
-Hide a necklace inside the pocket of a silk robe.
-Fold a cozy woolen shawl around another gift.
When Tradition Won't Work
Ivory is traditional for the fourteenth anniversary, but most new ivory cannot be imported to the US. You can find items made from vintage ivory, but if you're among those who do not wish to own the material at all you might want to look at ivory alternatives, made from nuts and seeds of palm trees and other vegetation.
Coral isn't as protected as ivory, but it is another substance that many people do not think should be removed from nature. Choose an alternative for your thirty-fifth anniversary, or take a diving trip to see the real thing!
