The wedding anniversary gifts for such an occasion should not be too lavish or expensive as this is not the only occasion for which you will be giving an anniversary gift. It is meant to symbolize your love and affection for your partner and remind them about all the special memories of the past and what the two of you have shared during those years of your married life.
When it comes to wedding anniversary gifts, couples often go overboard. If you really want to splurge, you could buy tickets to the biggest night of your life, or a luxury cruise, or a stay in a 5 star hotel around the world. But unless this is exactly what your partner wants, it is probably not the best idea to go that route. Some couples do, however, enjoy the idea of a luxurious resort for a couple’s anniversary.
Wool blankets are one of the most popular gifts for an anniversary gift. They make very warm blankets and are great to snuggle up with on winter mornings. A very thoughtful wedding anniversary gift might include a soft pair of wool socks. It is a tradition in some countries to exchange wool socks each year as a token of marriage. You could make this a grand occasion by having a special dinner, complete with a sumptuous meal and a traditional exchange of wedding vows. Your guests would surely enjoy this wedding favor, and you could find yourself enjoying the warmth of the wool blanket as well.
An interesting idea for an anniversary present that has a dual purpose is a silver medallion. Themed silver medallions are available in a wide variety of themes. A theme such as the Greek God of Healing can be used to lend elegance to your wedding anniversary gifts.

A sterling silver monogrammed cross can also be engraved on the back of the medallion for an elegant touch.
Another idea for a wedding anniversary present would be a set of tea lights tied with a ribbon in the style of your wedding dress. Tie the ribbon around a sprig of tea tree leaves and place a teacup filled with honey in the middle. You can then create the effect of lighting up the candle inside the pottery mug. This type of gift is great for either an indoor or outdoor wedding anniversary. This tea light candles make wonderful table decorations as well.
