Wedding Anniversary Landmark Years: Which Gift To Give? March 11, 2016 13:00
We all know that for landmark wedding anniversary years, a gift should be given, made of the precious material for that year. It's easy enough for the first few years, with items such as cotton, paper, wool, and wood. But then as the years of wedlock advance, so do the materials evolve into precious metals and stones, such as rubies, gold and sapphires.
Of course, we can't all afford to give real gemstones as a wedding anniversary gift, so we've come up with this list of decorated candles, matching the theme for each of the landmark years. Candles are a great gift to give to a couple, as it makes a decorative focal point for their home, which they can enjoy all year round. All of our candle gifts can also be personalised with the couple's name, or a personal message, making our gifts truly unique.
Here's our guide to landmark wedding anniversary gifts:
9 years – Copper
Copper may seem like quite a strange material to gift someone, as traditionally it's used in wiring and plumbing. However copper gives off a lovely bronze coloured shine, which is why our A Mother's Sparkle candle makes a great alternative to giving someone a copper pipe. The wording can be changed to whatever you like.
25 years – Silver
Twenty-five years of marriage is an achievement, so it's only right that it's marked with something special. Our Pure Luxury tea light candles are luxurious and sensual, and are sure to match in with any type of home decor. The married couple can enjoy a romantic evening together with these tealights dotted around the room to create a warm glow.
30 years – Pearl
Pearls are sophisticated and classy, so it's fitting that you choose a wedding anniversary gift to match. Our Mother of Pearl candle set is embellished with pearls all over, so the couple is sure to get the connection. It also comes with an optional charger plate, to create a unique display in the home.
40 years – Ruby
Rubies are red, and red is the colour of love, so our Queen Ruby pillar candle is the ideal gift for a fortieth wedding anniversary. It is also decorated in gold and pearl to add a touch of luxury, and has a heart motif on the front, which again is the symbol of love and romance. Why not add the couple's name in the middle of the heart?
45 years - Sapphire
Our Royal Sapphire candles come in a set of three, which means there is a whole range of possibilities when it comes to personalisation. Add each of the couple's names to a candle, then for the third add a personal message, or date.
50 years – Gold
There's not many couples nowadays who reach their golden wedding anniversary, with people choosing to marry later in life, or getting divorced. So this really is an achievement worth celebrating! Our Opulent Treasure candle is decorated in golden swirls, with added pearl and diamante embellishments, so it's definitely worthy of the occasion.
