Traditionally, each anniversary has an associated gift. When you know the right anniversary flowers to buy, shopping for your loved one becomes much easier. The guide below has flower and gift suggestions for four significant relationship milestones.
4 Anniversary Flower & Gift Pairings
1. 1 Year
To celebrate your first year as a married couple, carnations represent the fervor of new love. If you’re still in the honeymoon phase, a bouquet of these soft, ruffled petals will make the perfect accompaniment to your gift. The standard present for the first year is paper. Give a stack of customized stationary, fold an origami crane or flower, or just write a thoughtful love letter.
2. 10 Years
It might seem like the time has flown by, but 10 years is a major achievement for any married couple. The flower of choice for a decade is the daffodil. The sunny yellow color will brighten up any spot in your home. The traditional gift option for this milepost is a tin or aluminum item, but modern trendsetters are increasingly opting for diamond jewelry.
3. 25 Years
To celebrate this quarter-century milestone, irises are the go-to option. Their beautiful purple petals connect to a canary-yellow center. These colors create a pleasing visual contrast with silver, the typical anniversary gift. Choose an ornamental silver vessel to arrange the flowers in or buy your loved one a set of fine antique silverware to mark the occasion.
4. 50 Years
You’ve made it to the big 5-0. This is the gold anniversary, and it’s time to get extravagant. Many couples celebrate with a party, where you can present your partner with yellow roses and violets, as well as a gold necklace or earrings. Take the time to cherish the memories from the past five decades and celebrate your accomplishment.
