Anniversary Gift Baskets
It is a beautiful thing to celebrate a wedding anniversary. To have traveled a year on the unpredictable road of life with your spouse is a milestone worth commemorating. The ways couples acknowledge their anniversary are as varied as their wedding festivities. But there is one tradition that many hold dear: the year-by-year anniversary gift list.
You've probably heard of it. For every year of marriage, there is a corresponding type of present that a spouse can expect to both give and receive as an anniversary present: paper-themed gifts for the first year, cotton for the second, and so on. Each yearly gift category is broad, providing endless possibilities for creativity. The gifts increase in suggested value over time, symbolizing the deepening investment the couple makes in their relationship with each passing year.
The practice of themed anniversary gifts has roots in Medieval Germany, when wives received wreaths of silver on their 25th anniversary, and gold on their 50th. But it wasn't until 1937 that a complete guide for each year was published by the American National Retail Jewelers Association. This list of 'traditional' choices was later amended to include a second set of 'modern' options. Both lists continue to be used to this day.
Whether you are part of a traditional duo or a modern pairing, celebrating your 1st or your 41st year together, the most important gift you can give to your partner is a memory that will last a lifetime.
