Modern Wedding Anniversary Gifts
A wedding anniversary, whether the first or the twenty-fifth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Giving a thoughtful gift to your partner is a wonderful way to show affection and commemorate the time you've spent together. Finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, especially if you've been giving each other gifts for decades. Where do you look for new ideas? This list is the best place to start. Each gift idea has a link to the department where you can shop for the items. In England, during the Victorian era, celebrating anniversaries with gifts and parties became very fashionable, and it didn't take long for the trend to reach the United States. The traditional list of anniversary gift ideas came from this time. Then, in 1937, a group of jewelers decided to update the list to include more modern items (and more items that they sold in their stores -- diamonds show up on the list three times). That's where this list of modern wedding anniversary gifts came from. Many items from the original list appear here, and we've offered even more contemporary interpretations of the ideas. If you want to give a creative gift, you can use this list as inspiration. For even more anniversary gift ideas, be sure to read our guides to traditional wedding anniversary gifts and anniversary gemstones.
