Wedding Anniversay Gifts by Year - Traditional and Modern

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 2 4

Traditional wedding gifts go by year until the 20th anniversary then it starts going by every 5 years. Modern wedding gifts go by year until the 25th year at which time they start going every 5 years also. Traditional gifts are generally materials, occasionally gems and precious metals. Modern gifts are manufactured items, gems, and precious metals. Most folks nowadays can't make much from a bale of wool and that has been replaced by desk sets. A nice cotton shirt or some bed linens would be a good traditional item substitute but a desk set might be more desired and useful to the modern couple.

This is a great reference list. We're coming up on our 40th Anniversary next year. My birthstone is the ruby, and so is the anniversary gift idea. Guess I'll tell my husband to buy me a ruby! LOL ... how small do they come??
