Anniversary Year Gifts

I love starting new traditions and memories, and think it’s a great way to start off a new marriage. One tradition in marriage is to celebrate each anniversary year with a different gift. The gifts start out simple, and get more grand over the years. While these gifts can be anything, there are certain gifts that are traditionally given at each anniversary year! Here’s the list of anniversary’s and a few great traditional and modern alternatives.
