Anniversary Gifts: Worthy of the A-List

Whether you have a long-term beau or you’ve just started seeing someone, it’s cute – and super romantic – to celebrate your relationship milestones.

If you’re an old fashioned kind of person then original anniversary gifts such as paper, wood and tin, which have been around since the time of the Victorians, will be right up your street. The modern update for anniversary gifts includes more contemporary ideas, replacing unethical suggestions such as ivory.

Here are some of our tops picks for anniversary gifts from your first to fiftieth anniversary!

1 Year: Paper, Clocks and gold

Swarovski Rose Gold Plated Stardust Pen Gold-Plated Arabic Alarm Clock 9ct Gold Linked Hearts Necklace

The traditional choice of gift for a first wedding anniversary is paper – perfect for artist Kim Sears. We’ve bent the rules slightly with our recommendations and suggest that pens would be perfect teamed with a notebook or writing set.

The modern gift list has a clock for the first anniversary (because the time has flown by!). Gold is also the modern choice for gifting – we suggest a gold clock OR if your partner is a jewellery lover then a heart necklace would be perfect!
