What To Give on Your Anniversary! A Complete Guide to Gifting

July 21, 2015



Did you know that every anniversary has a special type of gift that you are suppossed to give according to the year you are celebrating? 


Did you also know that there are two versions of gifting, a traditional and a modern? 


Didn't know that? Don't feel so bad, neither did I.


There are so many types of gifts, who can remember all this? Most of us have hard enough time remembering the actual dates, let alone getting a gift. 


To help you all out, I created this simple guide to help you understand what to give for each anniversary. For the first twenty-five years there are modern and traditional options. Then once you reach the big twenty-five, they start to even out! (Whew) 


There is much symbolism behind each gift as well. The history behind these gifts explains that the longer you are together, the more you are rewarded for growing together as a couple! 


Keep in mind the gifts don't need to extravagant, just from the heart. And don't forget the most important part: a beautiful card!


Make sure to take the time to write a sweet message in your card. Again, make it simple and from the heart! 


Happy Gifting!
