wedding anniversary cufflinks“The heart of marriage is memories; and if the two of you happen to have the same ones and can savour your reruns, then your marriage is a gift from the gods.”

Wedding anniversary gifts are one of the most important gifts you can buy.  For your closest friends celebrating their first major milestone, for your wife who has stood by your side year after year or for your husband who still makes you feel like a princess.

 

We love receiving orders for wedding anniversary gifts and over the years we have had some very unusual requests, what better gift to personalise than an anniversary gift basket.  Here are some of the more memorable:

* A fruit tree
* Hand carved wooden jewellery box
* One flower delivered weekly for the month leading up to their special day
* A 5 year diary with a special note written on the page of each anniversary
* A tin beer mug
* A woollen braided friendship bracelet
* An iron!!!

 

If you are one of those who can never remember which anniversary gift goes with which year, the following table shows the traditional and modern gift for each milestone.
