Traditional Anniversary Gifts

Traditional anniversary gifts and modern anniversary gift lists can be used as a guide for anniversary gift ideas and anniversary gift giving.

The anniversary gift list (see below) shows the traditional anniversary gifts and modern anniversary gifts. Though still used by some people as a gift guide, the traditional and modern anniversary gift lists are relied on less in current times, in favour of more personalised anniversary gift selection.

One of the problems with the traditional and modern anniversary list is that they do not cater for each year of marriage, as they only cater for each 5 year increment. Many people have asked us "What do we do for the years in between?"

Naturally you're welcome to choose your gift based on the lists, or if you're looking for a more personal sentimental gift, we've put together some gift suggestions for you below.

Research Reveals Wives Prefer Jewellery for Anniversary Gifts

A 2009 international survey revealed that the overwhelming majority of ladies wished to receive jewelry for their upcoming anniversary.

When asked why they preferred jewelry as a gift, they said that 'jewelry is the gift that best says "I love you".'

Ladies also believe that jewellery, unlike any other gift, holds the greatest sentimental value.

And by choosing jewellery, the sentimental value doesn't bore within a few days like house-hold appliances do, nor confuse like technology products do, fade like flowers or add to the waistline like chocolate.

You could look at it like this: Give her an appliance and she might like it? Give her Jewellery and she'll Love You!

Jewellery is the desirable gift that will keep giving day after day for many years to come.
