Whether it's your first or 15th wedding anniversary, one thing is for sure, each milestone deserves to be celebrated. And while most people enjoy the fine dining and a top-notch drops that naturally comes with the annual celebration, finding a traditional gift to symbolise the year that's just past is a trickier feat.
Whether you consider yourself more of a contemporary gift giver or like to stick to the classic sentiments, we've sourced gift ideas for the first 15 years of marriage to save a last-minute dash to the shops each time your anniversary creeps up on you every year.
See below for our traditional-inspired gifts that have some modern interpretations thrown in for good measure.
YEAR 1: PAPER
We adore the idea of celebrating your first year with a framed print. There are so many subtle options out there that have personal sentiment but will also stand the test of time.
year 2: cotton
Could there be anything sweeter than matching robes? For extra points, add personalised "Mr." and "Mrs." embroidery.
year 3: leather
There are a plethora of leather options out there, but adding monogrammed details to your gift lends a special touch.
year 4: fruit
Even though traditionally, the fourth anniversary's gift is fruit, we can't help but think adding a little bubbly to the mix would also qualify.
year 5: wood
Sold separately, these chic presents don't have to be impractical, which is why we love these luxe storage options that sit pretty on any mantle or console and allow for miscellaneous trinkets to find a hidden home.
YEAR 6: IRON
Most people take a modern approach to the iron gift and branch out into metal-inspired purchases. These gunmetal headphones make for a practical and aesthetic gift all at once.
YEAR 7: COPPER
There's nothing quite like a well-deserved beverage to cheers to another year together. Keep your cocktails cool for longer in these chic mule mugs.
YEAR 8: BRONZE
Think outside the box for this anniversary and seek out one of the many beautiful bronze vases and statues readily available at vintage stores.
YEAR 9: POTTERY
Add this beautiful patterned pot to your abode with your loved one's favourite plant thrown in.
YEAR 10: ALUMINIUM
We were excited to find that this speaker is made of aluminum. Just think of all the lazy beach days spent with sweet tunes playing by your side.
YEAR 11: STEEL
Steel is undoubtedly one of the harder themes to shop for. We recommend interpreting this year's tradition into a more modern touch, with steel-like furniture and accessories serving as a stylish gift.
year 12: linen
It's no question that investing in a quality linen set is not only a practical investment but also one you will be thankful for after a good night's sleep.
YEAR 13: LACE
Sure, this present is geared towards a woman, but it's too pretty not to choose for a 13th milestone.
YEAR 14: IVORY
We would never condone purchasing actual ivory as a gift, so we've taken this traditional gift and turned it into a modern interpretation of what any coffee-loving partner will love.
YEAR 15: CRYSTAL
This vintage-inspired cut crystal decanter set will have you sipping on your favourite spirits whenever you fancy.
