Anniversary Gifts By Year

For every anniversary of marriage there are traditional gifts to give. Most people know that one gives silver on the 25th anniversary, and gold on the 50th anniversary. But did you know there are appropriate gifts for every year of marital bliss?

Over the years, the appropriate gift per year has changed with the times. This list is not so much a requirement to give specific gifts as it is a suggestion to make every anniversary year a unique celebration of your union to your partner.
