There are times when it can be quite difficult to find the perfect gift. It is easy to get a bit of help when shopping for wedding anniversary gifts by year. The lists include items for each year of marriage and can help gift givers to narrow down their choices to the category that corresponds with each year.
There are two lists: a traditional wedding anniversary gift list and a modern wedding anniversary gift list. There is some overlap between the two, such as the 25th anniversary is silver on both lists and the 50th is gold. Below are the lists for both the traditional and the modern wedding anniversary gifts by year.
Traditional Wedding Anniversary Gifts by Year
Modern Wedding Anniversary Gifts by Year
While these wedding anniversary gifts by year lists provide a starting point for your shopping, there is a lot of room for creativity within each category. Paper could be a scrapbook, a piece of art or even money. Fur could be a fur coat, or for those with a more humane mindset, a new puppy. Use the traditional or modern wedding anniversary gift lists as a jumping off point and then be creative to find the perfect gift.
What many people may not know is that there is also a list of flowers that correspond to the years a couple has been married. That list is below. It is a fun touch to include at least some of the appropriate year’s flowers in the décor or centerpieces.

Some ideas for how to incorporate the flowers include using the appropriate flowers in table centerpieces and corsages. You could also give a small flowering plant or bud vase to each party guest as a favor. Seed packets in a small clay pot will also make a wonderful wedding anniversary party favor.
Shopping for gifts from the lists for wedding anniversary gifts by year is not a requirement, but it is yet another way to mark how very special the occasion is to the couple and to those who love them. As mentioned above, by adding your own creativity, you will be able to find a gift within each category that is perfect for the recipients.
