Posted on 1st April 2019

Wedding anniversary gift list

We have carefully compiled our top gift in keeping with the traditional wedding anniversary list UK. As we know the thought of finding the perfect anniversary gift often makes people go into a tailspin with sweaty palms and blind panic. Wanting to find that perfect gift to commemorate the achievement of not killing each other for another 365 days in the best way. 

We have drawn our inspiration from the traditional list of UK wedding anniversary themes. They have come some way since the early Roman beginnings of a silver and gold wreaths!

Our wedding anniversary list consists of many strong UK independent retailers, to help surprise the other half with things they might not have seen before.

Click here to have a quick overview of our wedding anniversary list for the first 20 anniversaries themes and a sneak glimpse of what’s to come in part 2! 

First year

1ST WEDDING ANNIVERSARY GIFT - PAPER

We are in love with The Occasional Press Wedding Newspapers for a 1st wedding anniversary gift. A modern take on the traditional theme of paper. Choose your favourite pictures from your 1st year together. Include your wedding vows, wedding song or a personal heartfelt message. See it come to life into a tactile physical newspaper with an expertly designed layout ready to give your other half all the fuzzy heart and teary eye feelings.

2nd year anniversary gift- cotton

2ND WEDDING ANNIVERSARY GIFT - COTTON

Cotton, intertwined threads becoming stronger and unified together. There is something quite romantic about this anniversary theme, so why should your present be any different? House of Whatnot’s Embroidered cotton hoops are the perfect gift that embodies this. Do you have a sentimental location? Maybe you met backpacking through the middle of nowhere or possibly childhood sweethearts. Perhaps the location of where he popped the big question, or maybe even a photograph of the joyous moment. No matter if it’s a location or a photograph or even both, this gift oozes sentimentality in a fun quirky way.

Third year anniversary gift

3RD WEDDING ANNIVERSARY GIFT - LEATHER

The 3rd wedding anniversary theme is leather; durable, maturing and protective. Qualities we all aspire to have in our relationships. Looking for a romantic gesture that can’t be found on the high street with that extra personal touch? Say no more! We found No Ordinary Gift Company’s Leather Time Card and Leather Photo Memory Print. They tick all the boxes you could be looking for and will stand the test of time for your milestone.

Fourth year anniversary gift

4TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY GIFT - FRUIT OR FLOWERS

With the choice of fruit or flowers, we might be thinking we have this in the bag with a quick visit to the local supermarket. But we both know this isn’t really going to win any brownie points or even compare to the previous years. It’s time to get our thinking caps on and think a little outside the box.

The theme of fruit and flowers draws upon the idea of your relationship ripening and coming into bloom. For this, we found Choc on Choc’s Chocolate Banana’s. Fun, playful and a little tongue and cheek.

This is one all sweet-toothed lovelies have been waiting for! Time to indulge and celebrate your relationship getting sweeter over the past 6 years together. If you too were not blessed with the Marry Berry magic touch in the kitchen or just want to spoil their sweet tooth rotten, Honeywell Bakes are just the biscuit.

Seventh year anniversary gift

7TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY - WOOL

Wool offers comfort and warmth even through the coldest and bitter seasons. How beautiful to find this in someone you get to share the rest of your life with. This in mind we thought a little out of the box and came across this amazing experience your other half won’t see coming!

Get close and friendly with some jolly Alpacas on a walk and then delve into a felting workshop creating a keepsake from the day. With a scrumptious lunch, it’s a great day out in the countryside, making some wonderful memories.

Eighth anniversary gift

8TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY GIFT - BRONZE

Made of copper and tin to form a stronger material together. Bronze signifies the strength of your unity together.

Wanting to keep your 8th wedding anniversary personal and thoughtful we found Mixpixie’s Framed 3D Favourite Song sound wave. The sound wave can be made using Bronze-infused with PLA to create the intricate pattern of the soundwave. Opt for your wedding song or the song that played in the background on your first date, one that oozes sentimentality and evokes memories. It might just be a song to anyone else but it means a lot more to you.
