Anniversary celebrations date back to the medieval times when a husband would present his wife a silver wreath for 25 years of marriage and a gold wreath for 50 years of marriage. These anniversaries are still present today but now with a long list to accompany them. These are typical of paper, wood and flowers just to name a few.
Personalised Anniversary Gifts
These days we all like to receive gifts that are more personal to the individual. Typical gifts that include photos or personal messages like a Photo Engraved Pendant are always received well by the recipient. In fact, Silver gifts can be anything from jewellery to simple engraved key rings.

Year 1 and 2 are fairly straight forward. Year 3 can be a bit tricky, It's easy to purchase leather bags, shoes and belts but none of these represents a wedding anniversary. Personalised leather anniversary gifts would be perfect, sentimental and practical.
