The 25th wedding anniversary is also known as the silver anniversary. Traditionally, silver gifts are given on this milestone date. It may seem difficult to choose a silver wedding gift, but it does not have to be. Here are some ideas for silver anniversary gifts.
A traditional marriage gift for the silver anniversary is silver jewellery. While jewellery is mostly thought of as a gift for the wife, it can also be an anniversary gift for him. A ring, bracelet or necklace will make a nice gift for either man or woman. Choose jewellery that matches to make it extra special. You may also consider tie clips or cuff links as a gift for men. If your husband or wife enjoys cooking and entertaining, you may want to look for silver gifts that are centered around these. Look for silverware or napkin rings in sterling silver. You may also look for a sterling silver wine bottle opener for the wine-lover in your life. Sterling silver gifts are also great gifts to personalise. You can pick a nice jewellery box, keepsake box or picture frame for your spouse and have it engraved with a personal message. You can add your names and the date, a special quote or poem that has meaning between the two of you, or even something funny that only your spouse would understand.
Besides the traditional silver wedding gifts, you may choose to get something a little different. If your spouse enjoys spending time outside, he or she may appreciate a beautiful silver wind chime for the porch. If they prefer activities like hiking, you can find a silver compass or utility knife. Another truly untraditional gift idea for an outdoor lover is plant that follows the silver theme. You may gift your spouse with a silver birch tree or pick a flower with “silver” in its name, such as a Silver Beauty honeysuckle or a Silver Anniversary camellia. If your spouse loves movies, you can look for a DVD of a great movie that came out the year that you were married, perhaps something you saw together. You can wrap it in silver wrapping paper to stay on the silver theme.
