Top Ten Gift Ideas for the 30th Wedding Anniversary

Celebrating thirty years together is a remarkable achievement. Three decades of marriage, with its ups and downs, joys and heartbreaks, have brought you closer and solidified the unique bond you share. This occasion calls for something truly special.

The 30th Anniversary is known as the Pearl Anniversary. Just like a pearl, your marriage has grown year after year, gaining strength, beauty, and luster. Pearls are symbols of love, honesty, faith, purity, and integrity - perfect for celebrating a long, loving marriage.

30th Anniversary Symbols

  • Traditional Symbol: The Pearl - Pearls are symbols of love, honesty, faith, purity, and integrity.
  • Modern Symbol: Diamond - Diamonds symbolize eternal love.
  • Flower: Lily - The lily is a symbol of purity and devotion.
  • Color: Green - Symbolic of harmony, balance, and growth.

The tradition of giving anniversary gifts dates back to German Medieval times when only the 25th and 50th anniversaries were celebrated. Wives would receive silver myrtle crowns for the 25th anniversary and gold crowns for the 50th, while men would wear matching boutonnieres or belt buckles.

But why myrtle flowers? Well, myrtle flowers have a rich history as symbols of love, fidelity, innocence, and youth. They were often used in wedding ceremonies, and these commemorative keepsakes were displayed in frames and passed down through generations. Vintage myrtle crowns made of precious metals are now worth a fortune.

Myrtle Flowers are Symbols of Love

The concept of giving anniversary gifts spread throughout Europe, and the Victorians embraced it wholeheartedly. Soon, other anniversaries became cause for celebration, and the list of gift ideas for each year was born. Precious metals and gemstones were reserved for milestone years, each infused with symbolism and meaning.
