Whether you declared these words one year ago, or fifty years ago, a wedding anniversary is a special milestone worth celebrating.
On a wedding anniversary, it is traditional to give a gift to your partner (or a special couple) that symbolizes the number of years of marriage. This tradition dates back to the Middle Ages.
See the chart below to take the guess work out of your anniversary gift–giving! Here are some ideas to help you celebrate both the traditional and modern couple.
While I believe tradition is a very large part of marriage, I love adding a personal touch to every anniversary gift......... For example, say “I love you” on your 1st anniversary by writing a love letter on beautiful paper, for a sweet touch, paired with a beautiful gift of Jewelry! Of course I would suggest that...I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that Idea!

2nd year - Add a surprise to a gift of clothing by putting a gift certificate in the pocket. Who doesn't love a surprise!
3rd year - Write your "LOVE" story in a leather journal, paired with a Strand of pearls.
4th year - Let flowers symbolize your growing love. The flowers can be real or flowered shaped jewelry.
