Traditional Anniversary Gifts for Men

Browse our traditional anniversary presents for him


Today's list of traditional anniversary gifts by year is actually a relatively modern list. I think it's important when we use words like "tradition" to keep it in perspective. Exactly how long has this been a tradition?

Prior to 1922, there were only 8 "big" anniversaries with special gifts attached to them. But in 1922, Emily Post published an expanded list of traditional wedding anniversary gifts by year. It had symbolic anniversary gifts for each year of marriage for the first 15 years, and then every 5 years after that.

In 1937, a more expanded list of yearly anniversary gifts was created that covered the first 20 years of marriage, and then every 5 years after that. And that is your brief history lesson.

I know - you didn't come here for a history lesson. You want anniversary gift ideas for men, right? You want anniversary gift ideas for your husband, or perhaps ideas for wedding anniversary gifts for your parents. Don't worry - we've got you covered.
