Wedding Anniversary Themes

Wedding Anniversary Themes

New ideas for anniversary gifts can be challenging year-after-year.

The longer people are together the more ‘things’ they own together. But what is more important are the moments that they have shared together. With a word art gift you can capture those special memories in a gift they will treasure.
Wedding anniversary 'themes'.
Every year of marriage traditionally has a theme related to it. Anniversary gifts are usually created around this theme. The theme is usually a material, precious metal or stone, and they tend to become more luxurious and expensive every year!

However… most of us can’t really afford to buy the happy couple rubies on their 40th wedding anniversary! So you may be looking for alternative ideas and suggestions.

I have created some lovely anniversary gift ideas that can be personalised (or even fully customised) with all those special memories. The colour schemes are based around each anniversary theme:

  • 1st Anniversary: Paper 
  • 2nd Anniversary: Cotton
    Second anniversary gift
  • 3rd Anniversary: Leather /Glass
  • 4th Anniversary: Linen//Flowers
  • 5th Anniversary: Wood
  • 6th Anniversary: Candy / Iron
  • 7th Anniversary: Wool / Copper
  • 8th Anniversary: Bronze/Pottery
  • 9th Anniversary: Copper / Willow/Pottery
  • 10th Anniversary: Tin/Aluminium
    10th anniversary canvas
  • 15th Anniversary: Crystal
  • 20th Anniversary: China
    20th anniversary gift
  • 25th Anniversary: Silver
  • 30th Anniversary: Pearl

  • 40th Anniversary: Ruby
  • 45th Anniversary: Sapphire
  • 50th Anniversary: Gold

It is possible to make these anniversary gifts for any year.
If yours is not here then I can still happily create it for you.

All designs are completely flexible so I can personalise them just the way you need me to in order to make your gift unique – I can add in grandchildren’s names, pets, their favourite restaurant, where they first met, etc.
