2. How Much Should You Spend On Wedding Anniversary Gift?

An anniversary gift can vary in price, but a good guideline would be to spend $100 or less, adding that her top choices run the gamut from a bouquet of flowers in a crystal vase to a nice bottle of champagne with custom monogrammed wine glasses. And remember that a thoughtful note should always be included.

Whether it’s the first or the 50th or any year in between, wedding anniversaries are meant to be celebrated! Much as birth stones and birth month flowers are associated with each month of the year, certain gifts are connected with specific wedding anniversaries.

It’s not known when or how the concept of anniversary gifts by year appeared, though it’s long been a tradition in many cultures. Mentions of specific wedding anniversaries start to show up in the 19th century, such as in a British article from 1811 describing a celebration that is “a common custom in Holland when a couple has lived together 25 years…to give a festival on the occasion; this is called a silver wedding.” An 1843 magazine article mentions a similar 25th wedding anniversary celebration in Germany when the wife was gifted a silver crown.

The custom continued to evolve so that by the end of the century, many different etiquette books listed wedding anniversaries and the appropriate gifts for each year. In 1923, Emily Post’s book Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home outlined suggestions. Also in the ‘20s and ‘30s, trade organizations such as jewelers hopped onto the trend in order to encourage the giving of specific jewelry pieces for each anniversary.
