Are you in need of the perfect wedding anniversary gift for your spouse? Look no further! This extensive list of anniversary gift ideas is sure to have something that will wow your significant other with your thoughtfulness. Did you know that there are twenty-seven traditional wedding anniversary gifts by year? In this post, we will share a plethora of amazing anniversary gift ideas by year, including both traditional and modern options.

The Story Behind the Unique Gift List

You may be wondering why there are only twenty-seven suggestions. Well, the creators of these 'traditional' anniversary gift ideas either ran out of ideas or wanted to give gift-givers free rein on the in-between years. We like to think it's the latter. So, you have suggestions for anniversary gifts from the 1st through 15th year, and then you're on your own until the 20th. The list picks back up again at the 5s and 10s: 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th, 50th, and 60th. That's a total of twenty-seven suggestions. Sidebar: Did you know that the 60th anniversary is symbolized by a diamond? Quite impressive, isn't it? They probably should have saved it for the 70th! #longlifehusbandwife

Now let's dive into the list of hand-picked, totally knock-your-socks-off anniversary gifts!

1st Paper

Start off with the 1st anniversary, which calls for paper as the traditional gift. You can celebrate by eating the top tier of your wedding cake (if you froze it, as tradition suggests) and give each other a simple, heartfelt gift: a card. A card is a simple and sweet gesture that doesn't have to be pricey to be meaningful. For example, you could get a card that says, "I've been in love with you for _____ days." How cute is that?

Another option for a paper gift is a beautiful photo print like this one from Minted. You can customize it with your favorite words and choose a beloved photo. Plus, it comes with a frame included!

2nd Cotton
