Wedding Anniversary Gifts

Finding just the right wedding anniversary gifts can be difficult sometimes. In fact, remembering that special couple on their special day has been a tradition for centuries. In fact, a long time ago, it was decided that certain gifts should be given as wedding anniversary gifts depending on the length of time a couple had been married…

For example, a gift made of paper should be given for the first anniversary. In modern times, this has been changed to giving the celebrants clocks as wedding anniversary gifts. For the traditional fourth anniversary gift of something made of linen or silk, now we give appliances as gifts. I guess somebody figure out that after four years, that microwave oven given as a wedding gift would need replacing.

Traditional gift giving for the seventh year is something made of wool or even copper. For the 21st century, you should give the happy couple desk sets as their wedding anniversary gifts. Other traditional anniversary gifts include ivory for the 14th year, now replaced by gold jewelry, and wrist watches instead of crystal for the fifteenth year of marriage.
