Complete Wedding Anniversary Guide 1st - 80th Year.
Complete wedding anniversary gift guide of which anniversary gifts for which year be it a traditional, modern or alternative gift for the 1st to the 80th wedding anniversary year. I have also included a list of appropriate flowers and gemstones by anniversary year.
My husband and I recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and I didn't have a clue what to get him let alone which gift related to which year.
In my search to find out this information I thought I might share it with the rest of the world. Hence, my version of the "Anniversary Wedding Gift Ideas By Year Lens" was born. I hope to enlighten and inspire all you husbands and wives out there with the knowledge of the type of gift to get your beloved along with a comprehensive list of original and creative gift ideas hand picked by me for you. I also list the flowers and gem stones that relate to each anniversary year. So now there are no excuses.
So here we go, starting with the 1st year of marriage right through to 80 years of wedded bliss, if you can make it that far....
