33rd Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

Your 33rd Wedding Anniversary is a special occasion and one to be celebrated in style.

This year's modern alternative gift symbol is the stunningly beautiful Amethyst with all it's rich purple colors. It doesn't have a traditional gift symbol as the traditional list goes from your 30th straight to your 35th.

33rd Anniversary Symbol and Meaning 

Gift symbol: Amethyst

Color: Purple

Although your 33rd Anniversary doesn't have a traditional symbol the Amethyst stone is a very traditional gift and one that has been gifted for hundreds of years.

Meaning: The literal meaning of Amethyst comes from the Ancient Greek word amethystos meaning not intoxicated, probably not quite the celebration meaning you are used to in previous Anniversary years! After 33 years of marriage this beautiful stone represents calmness and being grounded.

The Romans believed that the Amethyst represented fidelity which represents the commitment and strength you both have to each other a wonderful symbol for a wonderful marriage.

Gifts of Amethyst are beautiful, a prized gift as far back as the Ancient Egyptians and even Cleopatra is meant to have worn a ring made of Amethyst.

33rd Wedding Anniversary Gifts for your Wife

Knowing that one of the most famous Queens of the Ancient world prized the Amethyst stone you know that your wife will love Amethysts for her gift.

  • Madagascar - perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and where you can see some of the most incredible wildlife, explore the rainforest and go diving with White Sharks if you are feeling adventurous
  • Namibia - where you can enjoy a Safari to see some of the most incredible wildlife, they have the largest population of black Rhinos in the world, there are also beautiful sandy beaches to relax and also you can explore the Brandberg region where most of the Amethysts are mined.

  • Uruguay - where you can explore on horse-back or relax on a wine tour, as well as enjoy the beaches and a trip to Artigas for some of the most beautiful Amethysts in the world.
  • and Zambia - which is the largest miner of Amethysts in the world. Here you can go on a romantic safari, take a trip to the Victoria Falls and bathe in the Devil's pool which looks as if you will go over the edge - one of those once in a lifetime experience! 

The Amethysts in these countries are protected so you can't just go and pick up your own stones, instead a great way to get the most of your Anniversary vacation is to explore the beauty of these countries and if you are lucky buy an Amethyst gift while you are there.
