Anniversary Gift Inspiration by the Year and the Meanings Behind it

Color:

Wedding anniversary is one moment worth celebrating, even since the ancient Roman days! Back then, husbands crowned their wives with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary, and a gold wreath on the fiftieth, thus making those milestones known as silver and golden anniversary respectively. Later on, in the twentieth century, more anniversaries are being represented by a named gift, following that historical tradition. The number of symbols expanded, and it is getting more and more common for couples to exchange anniversary gifts that had connections with each stage of married life, to be treasured for the years to come. So, if your wedding anniversary is coming up and you haven't got the idea of what to give your spouse as a token of your appreciation, you can see a list below to find what item symbolizes the age of your marriage and go from there.
