A Twist on Custom "Traditional" Anniversary Gifts
The tradition of giving anniversary gifts has been around for centuries, and over the years certain traditions stuck harder than others. In the Roman Empire, husbands used to offer their wives a silver piece of jewelry for their 25th wedding anniversary, and a golden accessory to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.
Each year in the married couples' life indicates a different type of anniversary gift, starting with Paper for the 1st anniversary, and ranging through different types of materials (such as silver for 25 years, and gold for 50 years) until the grand finale - White Diamond for the 60th anniversary. That's where they drew the line.
