MyList.ae’s Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas
It’s amazing how fast time flies once you have planned your wedding and enjoyed a perfect day. If you’re anything like us, your first, then second, anniversary will be approaching in seemingly no time at all. Wedding anniversaries can be tricky occasions for which to buy a gift for your other half, but, as you may know, there is a tradition that you can follow to make deciding what to buy a little easier.
Twenty-fifth and fiftieth wedding anniversaries were actually first celebrated during the Roman Empire, and as time as gone on, each year of marriage has been associated with a certain material. Although this can differ according to UK and US customs, there are similarities and overlaps between the two.
With this in mind, we contacted our vendors MyList.ae, and asked them for their top picks for gifts to get your loved one during the first ten years of marriage. We hope that this will help inspire you, whether you are celebrating your first or tenth anniversary. Here’s to many more happy years ahead…enjoy!
