Anniversaries are fun, they come just once a year but have you ever wondered what each year means and what your's is?
If you are about to celebrate or are looking for ideas for your parents or grandparents then we can help.
We have pulled together all the anniversary lists from the traditional to the unusual to find the meaning behind the gifts and the year that you are celebrating. It makes it more special just knowing why you gift paper on your 1st and diamonds on your 60th and take it from us it also makes finding the perfect present more fun too!
This great gift tradition goes back hundreds of years when the 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries were celebrated with silver and gold garlands from the husband to the wife. The start of the traditional list.
From these early origins we now have the modern list, plus a flower and also a gemstone anniversary list and we are always on the lookout for more lists. If you are looking for a particular year then use the menu on the left.
There are ideas for each year, each list and for everyone, to suit all budgets. Plus we have added ideas so you can make them more personal and unique to you.
If you are planning a party then adding the theme of the year you are celebrating creates a fantastic overall feel to the party. Plus it makes it easier, which when you are planning a party is always good.
Anniversary party ideas and advice are available in our party section, where you will find articles on planning, decorating, invitations, games, catering, favors and surprises.
