10 years, 20, 25, 40 or 50, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been together, every anniversary deserves to be celebrated!
With each year you stay together, you reach new milestones and accomplishments. You learn each others loves, hates, and pet peeves. Being in love and staying married is difficult, but you have worked through numerous arguments, disappointments and challenging times.
Take this time to celebrate your relationship by yourselves or with your loved ones. Don’t be afraid to brag and show off. You’re defying the odds!
The values of the different anniversary years
Celebrate every milestone as you reach it! Anniversaries are a fantastic time for you to reflect on your relationship. Think about the good times and all the memories you've accumulated. You can pull out photos, watch videos or simply spend time together. There are plenty of ways for you to reminisce. And you can complete the experience by exchanging gifts!
Everybody has heard of the different anniversary gifts you can give. Traditionally every year is different and holds varying meanings. This guide will suggest anniversary gift ideas for the 10th, 20th, 25th, 40th and 50th wedding anniversaries.
As you reach a new milestone, you learn more about each other. Your relationship strengthens, and you appreciate every little moment together. The best way to thank your partner for staying beside you is with gifts.
Every anniversary year has a theme and meaning. While these traditions are no longer being closely adhered to, that doesn’t mean you can’t use them for gift suggestions. It’s up to you whether or not you choose to follow it or create your own gifting ideas. If you would like to know more about the traditional gifts, they are explained further down in our anniversary gifts guide.
