Valentine’s Day is approaching, and that may mean it’s your anniversary, too. If you’re scratching your head of what to get your spouse, let us help you with that. Let us make it easy by following these traditional gifts by year of anniversary. See the whole list here.
Year 1, Paper: Arguably one of the most important anniversaries, there are boundless options for paper. We love the idea of getting your spouse a set of personalized stationery by Bell’Invito (whether a name change is in order or not). This also makes a great gift from parents to the new couple.
Year 3, Leather: By year three, you’ve made some wonderful memories as a couple, perhaps purchasing a home, getting a pet, or even adding to your family in other ways. Capture these moments in a leather-bound photo album or leather journal by Graphic Image to keep those happy times preserved.
Year 7, Wool: If you’re in need of a reminder to celebrate with your spouse, check out our merino wool wine carriers from Graf and Lantz and fill it with a bottle of champagne or a nice wine. For non-drinkers, we have messenger bags and pouches for technology devices.
Year 14, Animals: Why not surprise your better half with a decorative, decoupage piece from John Derian? With various retro patterns which include horses, dogs, and cats, your animal-loving wife or husband is sure to love it.
Year 25, Silver: This is a special year, requiring a special gift. Cross and Faber-Castell use silver in their fine writing utensils. What gift can be more special and practical than a pen?
Year 50, Gold: This is a big, no, the biggest one. The best of the best. Hopefully you’re having a party, and hopefully there will be a thoughtfully wrapped, 14 carat gold nib fountain pen from Namiki in a box for your sweetheart.
Whatever anniversary year it is, remembering a hand-written card is always stylish, personal, and unique. Stop by so we can help you make that one day a year special every time.
