A table of traditional wedding anniversary gifts.

April 12th, 2008 by Heather Dyer

At this same time last year, they were busy putting together the final arrangements for their big day. Details like honeymoon plans, fitting properly into the dress and tux, and preparing the reception area absorbed their every thought. Today however, the newlyweds aren’t exactly newly wed nor are bouquets of baby’s breath and removing shoe polish from the getaway car are the first things on their mind.

Here is a table of traditional wedding anniversary gifts listed year by year.

First – paper product such as a wedding/first year album or certificate, clock
Second – cotton products such as a personalized afghan or table runner, china
Third – leather, crystal, glass
Fourth – appliances, flower arrangements or potted plants (consider an artificial plant or silk floral arrangement for longevity)
Fifth – wood item such as anniversary plaque or frame, silverware
Tenth – tin/aluminum products, diamond jewelry
Twentieth – china, platinum jewelry
Thirtieth – pearls, diamonds
Fortieth – ruby jewelry
Fiftieth – gold jewelry
Sixtieth – diamonds

Celebrating a wedding anniversary is as important as celebrating the Big Day itself. It is revisiting the most special moment in the couple’s life and gathering to celebrate a year of successful marriage. Making this day special for them says in a clear voice that this couple is very important to you and that you are dedicated to the success of their marriage.
