For some, when it comes to buying presents for your first anniversary or 60 anniversaries beyond that, finding the perfect gift can be daunting. Luckily, traditions have been upheld, lists have been made and all one has to do is keep within the parameters of the traditional or modern gift set to each anniversary year. Some traditional gifts you may have heard of, some you may be surprised by and others you can take a fresh spin on to give an unforgettable, timeless gift.
You can see that some traditional and modern gifts overlap and others are more broad ranged options, which can definitely make gifting easier and allow the one giving the gift more creative opportunities.
For example, the 12th anniversary gift of silk or linen we would add a local New Orleans touch to the present. Nola Couture is a local company that arose from the need to lift spirits in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. It offers individual designs created in New Orleans specifically for New Orleanians. The designs are based off of classic New Orleans staples such as streetcars and snowballs. The perfect gift for your groom on your silk anniversary would be one of Nola Couture’s silk bow ties. With a variety of design options, we love the streetcar design and the “po boy” bow tie.

For the ladies, the 25th anniversary is dedicated to silver. The Elsa Peretti line at Tiffany & Co. offers a mesh tie necklace in sterling silver. This piece is not only beautiful, but it is completely different than most designs you see in recent jewelry lines. The wear options are endless and it is guaranteed to give your bride the fashionable confidence she deserves.
