Having been married now for 8 years (how time flies!) sometimes I struggle to find the perfect present for my husband when it comes to anniversary time, and as such I have created a simple printable with all the traditional and modern wedding anniversary gift themes written down in one place for inspiration for gift buying.
I thought it may be useful to many of your so I wanted to share it with you today.
I don’t know about you, but I had no idea until I got married myself that there was a theme for every year of being married.
Of course, I knew that you had a ruby wedding, and a silver wedding – but a paper wedding and a china wedding? It was news to me.
When I did a search on Google for ideas for my own early anniversaries (1st, 2nd etc….), I found a whole new world of themes out there, and after exploring some more it wasn’t even that there was one theme, there were some years that had different themes for both traditional and modern eras.
It started to get a little confusing!
I wanted to buy gifts that were special and in the right theme for both my husband and any other peoples wedding anniversaries I needed to buy presents for, and so I collected all the themes in one easy to reference place. (I keep it in my home file as I only reference it occasionally, but you may prefer to have it in your diary or Filofax).
If you are like me and would like a reminder of the different themes for those special occasions, then just simply click on the link here, and save or print off the pdf document that will open for you:-
I hope you find it useful – there’s a lovely quote at the top of the printable as well that’s related to marriage which I thought was apt (I do love my quotes!).
