Personalized silver couples jewelry, your birthstones and your names engraved within the piece.

And this is available from our own Anniversary Gifts Store.


If your husband likes his beer, how about buying him his own personalized gun metal beer mug.

Available to buy in our Anniversary store today.


Or how about a pair of personalized silver cufflinks?

These, you can personalize with his initials and the best bit is you can add your very own secret love message too.

The Number 16

16th wedding anniversary gifts

You may want to concentrate on the number 16 to use as your celebration - sweet 16! A box of your favourite chocolates or a jar of your favourite sweets. You could tie a label to the jar with the words Sweet 16!

For you creative types you could wrap 16 presents up, or invite 16 people for a dinner. If you love sports you could organise a 16km walk or run. Make sure there are lots of nice stop off points on the way!

For you romantic types you could have 16 nights away.

Vintage Wines

If you are looking for a gift to wrap then have a look at vintage wines from the year you were married.

Also have a look for hotels with 16 in their name, there are lots! And one might just be close enough to fit in a weekend away.

A fun anniversary gift if you both enjoy good wines would be to join a wine club and have great wines delivered to you each month. This would be an anniversary gift that would last all year.

16th Anniversary Gemstones

Your 16th anniversary is not celebrated on the traditional anniversary list nor is it on the anniversary flower list, both of which go from your 15th anniversary to your 20th.

However, the gemstone anniversary list does have Peridot as the symbol of 16 years together and there is a lovely story that Napoleon once made a gift of peridot to Josephine as a symbol of undying love and admiration. It is the stone of lightness and beauty, perfect for 16 years together!

This gorgeous handcrafted Peridot heart would be a perfect gift.

Lots of gorgeous Peridot jewelry available at Amazon.
