Traditional Gift for Wedding Anniversary 

It has been traditional to give a gift to your wife, husband, or couple you are related to (or friends with), which is ‘symbolic’ of each Wedding Anniversary.  We list below the ‘symbols’ of Traditional Gifts for Wedding Anniversaries, the ‘symbol’ being a different ‘material’ for each year. 

Because tradition has changed over the years, there is now both a Modern and a Traditional ‘material’ or ‘symbol’ associated with each Wedding Anniversary and its associated 'Gift'. Depending on which website you visit, these are not consistent.  Also, the ‘material’ differs from country to country.  Below, we list only the Traditional Gifts. 

The fact that times are changing, makes it even more personal, as to what you give as a gift.  We think that collecting crystal is a great way to commemorate each Wedding Anniversary.

We also offer some ideas on:
