Wedding Anniversary Gifts by the Year

Wedding Anniversary Gifts by the Year

by | Living

Every year, on our wedding anniversary we have the same conversation:

“So what is the official gift for this year?”

“I don’t know. Why don’t you Google it?”

Like most people, we know that 25 years is your silver anniversary and your 50th year is your golden anniversary. But what about 14 years? Or 3 years? What do you get for someone on their third wedding anniversary?

Well, worry no more. This handy guide lists all the ones we could find. We’ve listed the traditional anniversary gifts and the modern versions too.
