  • Pearls are unique because they grow in mollusks and oysters. There are two types: artificial and natural pearls. Artificially pearls are most commonly used in jewelry-making and are purposely created in a lab, while natural pearls are, as the name suggests, created naturally by the species.
  • Non-traditional gifts like tickets to a concert or to see their favorite sports team, a paid adventure trip or vacation, or even household goods like a new appliance.
  • Lilies are majestic and beautiful flowers. They are also the signature flower for the 30th anniversary. This flower symbolizes many things, mainly because it comes in different types and colors. For example, white lilies are symbolic of modesty while orange lilies signify passion. Just like roses, lilies signify love and make a good accompaniment for any gift.
  • Diamonds are the modern gift and, unlike pearls, are quite strong and do not need much care.

Gift giving tips for husband and wife

For him: gifts for your husband
When it comes to your husband, the gift ideas do not have to be limited to the traditional or modern themes. Men are often more particular and they prefer gifts that they can use. A new tennis racket, golf clubs, or even a motorcycle jacket could be great gifts, depending on his interests. If you wish to stick with official gifts, you could get him a diamond-encrusted watch or pearl cufflinks.
For her: gifts for your wife
At this stage in your marriage, you already know what your partner’s preference and style is. When choosing a gift for your wife, you want a gift that says you love her now more than ever and one that signifies your time spent together.

You could also choose a gift that’s nostalgic, like a recreation of your first date, or a second honeymoon. Of course, jewelry never fails to impress. We suggest going with the official themes and choosing diamonds or pearls.
