Wedding anniversary gift-giving tips

  • Be creative with the traditional and modern-day anniversary themes. In this case, it’s china and platinum, respectively. For example, if the couple loves to decorate, you could buy pieces they could use for their interior decor such as an antique Chinese lamp.
  • Don’t forget to assess your budget to identify what sort of mementos you can afford. It’s important to note that your gift doesn’t have to be an expensive one. The thought and the sentiment is by far more important. Enclosing a personal note from the heart with the gift is an extra touch that won’t go unnoticed.
  • Select gifts that bring back memories. A memory book that goes back over the 20 years is a touching gift to present to your spouse. Add a few blank pages for the years to come!
  • Experience gifts tend to be the most exciting. You could treat the couple to a night out or sign them up for a fun and short Chinese cooking lesson. You also could treat your spouse to a spa retreat.

Is tradition the way to go?

Let’s start with the traditional theme: china. China symbolizes elegance, delicate beauty, subtle strength and inherent love. Contrary to what many people believe, gifts of china don’t have to be expensive. There are plenty of china tea sets, sculptures and jewellery boxes that can be bought at pocket-friendly prices. You could also offer a nice dinner at a good Chinese restaurant as your gift or, if you have deep pockets, a trip to the country.

Platinum is a modern theme. You have plenty of gift ideas to work with when it comes to platinum, jewellery being one of them. Don’t despair, as there are inexpensive options out there, for example, platinum-coated flowers. For music lovers, you may wish to consider buying an album that went platinum or, to make it that much more special, look for an album that went platinum in the year of the marriage. This would make quite a nostalgic and well-thought-out gift. Extra bonus points if it’s an artist they’re a fan of.

For flowers, the daylily is the customary anniversary choice. Combine this with china or platinum gifts, or decorate it in a platinum coloured wrapping paper. If you wish to include gemstones or another colour to your gift, choose emerald as this is the stone for this celebration.

Whether you’re buying the gift for the love of your life, or for your parents, neighbours, friends or family members, you’ll be surprised to learn that there are plenty of gift ideas befitting your purpose. If there’s only two things you remember when buying for the 20th anniversary, it’s that platinum and china are the base themes. Where you take those is up to you.
