The tradition is said to have begun in Germany where, when a married couple celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, her friends and neighbours to congratulate them and celebrate the 25 years of marriage gave the wife a silver wreath. In keeping with this theme it is then said that on celebration of the 50th, the wife received a gold wreath.

 

Eventually the number of symbols expanded and the German tradition began to allot gifts that had direct links with each stage of a couples married life. Over time however the symbols have changed. In the United Kingdom, The 75th anniversary was well connected with the gift of diamonds however this has now changed to the 60th anniversary after Queen Victoria's 60 years being associated with the Diamond Jubilee.

 

The beginnings of the today's gifts dates back to 1937. Before this, only the 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 50th, and 75th anniversaries had a related gift. In 1937, the American National Retail Jeweller introduced an extended list of gifts. This new list assigned a gift for each year up to the 20th anniversary, and then for every fifth anniversary after that. Finding that perfect traditional anniversary gift can be hard, hopefully our guide will make your search that little bit easier.

 

Nowadays the choice for Anniversary Gift Ideas is vast, from Anniversary Gift Vouchers, Anniversary Photo Frames and even Personalised Anniversary Champagne.
