The tradition of giving specific wedding anniversary gifts by year dates back to the Middle Ages.

anniversary flowersTraditional gifts - like paper for the 1st anniversary or sterling silver for the 25th, for example - are increasingly considered to be only guidelines, (or an out-dated idea altogether!)

Today, anniversary gifts don't have to be lavish or expensive. Usually, all it takes is a thoughtful or romantic gift or gesture that celebrates the years the couple have been together.

Follow these practical tips and find a gift idea that any anniversary couple is sure to appreciate and enjoy:

  • Anniversary gift baskets: One of the easiest and impressive gifts to present to the anniversary couple, an anniversary gift basket may include their favorite wine or champagne, wine goblets, cheeses, chocolate, gourmet coffes or teas, scented candles, CD's of romantic music, or anything else that you think they might like.

  • Send them on a 'date': How about tickets to a concert or a night out at the movies? Also consider a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant, then arrange to have a bouquet of flowers or bottle of anniversary champagne delivered to their table as wonderful, romantic surprise.

  • Anniversary gifts for parents: Get together to create a family-photo calendar, scrapbook or photo album that your parents will always treasure. For high-ticket items, family members may also want to chip in for a dream travel cruise, or a romantic weekend bed-and-breakfast getaway.

  • Gifts for milestone anniversaries: For couples their 25th anniversary or more, a "This is Your Life" party can be a joyous and memorable occasion for everyone. Be sure to contact guests ahead of time to have them e-mail best wishes and memories, which may then be printed out and included in a photo scrapbook to present to the anniversary couple.

  • Gifts that anniversary couples can give to each other: Dinner for two is the obvious choice, or think about stops in romantic places you visited when you were first dating, or a romantic night at a 5-star hotel!
