Anniversaries are great occasions to gift presents that really mean something

The most commonly celebrated anniversary event is the Wedding anniversary, and the tradition of giving specific anniversary presents based on the number of years that a couple has been married, dates back to the Middle Ages.

Do you know someone who would like to receive a really special present and a meaningful gift on the occasion of their Anniversary? We have some great anniversary gift ideas.

In medieval times, only major anniversaries like the 25th and 50th were celebrated. To mark the occasion of the 25th wedding anniversary, a husband would crown his wife with a wreath of silver – hence the term Silver Wedding anniversary. Likewise, on the 50th wedding anniversary he presented a wreath of gold . . the Golden Wedding anniversary. The 60th wedding anniversary became associated with diamonds as Queen Victoria of England celebrated her Diamond Jubilee on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne in 1897 – despite the fact that diamond had already been nominated as the stone best associated with the 75th anniversary event and was in fact the original Diamond Anniversary.

Over the years, more wedding anniversaries were added – starting with the 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th and 20th, and culminating in a general celebration / occasion so that nowadays, every year, people gift presents as a means of passing on their good wishes to a couple, or simply as a token of love between couples.

Likewise, with any other (non-wedding) anniversary – presents are given to pass on goodwill sentiments for a wide range of annually celebrated events. And in our online shop, we offer a range of really meaningful Anniversary presents.
