Wedding anniversaries are important milestones for couples, as it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate that you’ve survived another year together!
Of course, no wedding anniversary would be complete without giving the perfect gift. While there’s always a little pressure to come up with something your other half will truly love, choosing gifts for this occasion doesn’t have to be particularly complicated.
There’s latitude with wedding anniversary gifts, in that they can be more quirky and thoughtful rather than just something you’ve thrown money at.
Your wedding anniversary gift doesn’t have to be a physical item either – there are some amazing gift experiences available that create memories to last a lifetime. For instance, a visit to a place you’ve talked about but never been before, a special trip to a restaurant, or perhaps it’s a couples day away from the children.
When looking for wedding anniversary presents, physical gifts, experience gifts and romantic gestures can all be perfect if tailored to your partner’s preferences.

#1 – Something symbolic
Each wedding anniversary has a traditional and modern symbol that can guide you to find the perfect gift. You can think outside the square by combining these symbols with tangible gifts that have special significance.
For example, the traditional first year wedding anniversary gift is ‘paper’, which could be tickets to a show, or the framing of your wedding vows. The modern gift is ‘clocks’ so a new watch would make a lovely gift.
