One of the secrets of a successful and fulfilling marriage is to first remember and then celebrate your wedding anniversary in the ‘proper’ manner. Most of us would like to recognise each passing year with a gift for our partner but many of us cannot remember what it is that traditionally we should give as the special gift.


Without doubt most of us can remember that our 25th anniversary is represented by silver and the 40th by a ruby, the very lucky ones know that the 50th anniversary is celebrated with gold. The very few can even recall that diamonds mark the arrival of the 60th confirmation of the wedding day.

How many of us know the types of the traditional gifts other celebratory years represent. Well, in the spirit of celebration for anyone who wishes to make their next anniversary a little special, the following are the most recognised types of gifts that will make you so popular with your partner.

Surprise him or her with your knowledge, appreciation and surprise yourself by making your remembering of the wedding day anniversary more enjoyable.

The following list shows the traditional types of wedding anniversary gift for certain years confirmed by both the young and the older partners over many years.
