    I am married for 38 years and we don’t celebrate anniversaries. However it’s a fun thing to have in life.

    I give a gift card to any of my friend’s anniversary.

    It was new for me to see these kind of categories of gifts based on the wedding years.

    1. You have much to celebrate after 38 years of marriage! Plan to do something very special for your 40th especially. This is a precious milestone in your life which makes an incredible celebration! A special trip with your family would be an incredible way to celebrate and would make lasting memories!

  5. I like this article. Though not married or in a relationship, I do like to see traditions from the old days. I thought flowers would be a year 1 or year 2 thing. but year 4 is a great place because every man knows that we are supposed to do better than the previous year. I agree with the arch of flowers because I have to be somewhat over the top. A floral necklace or ring is a very sweet way to make her smile AFTER you do all the other things to make the night memorable. Buying off your spouse is not the goal, building memories is!

    1. When you take the time to plan something very special that will make a cherished memory of the occasion, you have just gained in wisdom to know how to keep your marriage relevant and successful!

  6. I couldn’t but smell the beautiful fragrance of flowers when I read your article. I have recently retired, and I’m finding a new passion for nature and plants.

You have great ideas for the wedding anniversary gifts by year.

I shudder to think but am certain that your article will save many from making that kind of mistake. There was a time when women were offended by receiving appliances though. It has been my experience that most women do not give gifts the same way they receive them.

    1. Gift giving should always be done to encourage and to strengthen relationships. Thank you for spending time on the site today to learn about true gift giving.

  8. First off I did not realize that there was US, UK, and modern versions of anniversary gifts. So for that, I say thanks as it adds to my ability to select a broader range of gifts. I try to celebrate each and every anniversary so while the 4th may not typically be as special as the 5th or 25th it still has significance and should be treated as such. For the 4th I would go with modern appliances like a new range or broiler. I do also like the GB version of utilizing silks since an appliance might not be considered personal enough for my wife. I am thinking a silk Kaftan or robe would do well.

    1. Variety is certainly the spice of life. I am glad that you received some fantastic iseas from reading the article in your planning for a special anniversary.
