Anniversary Years

Year 1

Year 5

The traditional gift for this anniversary is wood. Wood is strong and long lasting, representing strength and solidarity. A more modern spin on wood is silverware, representing connectedness. The flower for this anniversary is the daisy. Daisies mean innocence, loyal love and purity.

Year 10

Although this may seem odd, the tenth anniversary gift is tin or aluminum. The pliability of tin is a symbol of how successful marriages need to be flexible and durable.

Year 15

The 15th year anniversary is meant to symbolize the clear and sparkling love between the two with crystal. A modern alternative is the watch. This symbolizes the time you’ve had together.   Roses are the flower for this anniversary which represent passion, love, and perfection.
