Anniversaries Through the Years
We have probably all heard about the traditional anniversary gifts that you should give to your spouse for each anniversary. However, recently the Chicago Public Library redid those traditional anniversary gifts and made them more modern. We are going to go through the old and the new lists and give you our opinion on them. To start, lets compare the two lists.
The first thing we noticed with the new list is that diamonds, as well as jewellery, are repeated throughout the 60 anniversaries, which means more glamour for you! The new list maintains consistent with the old list from the 40th anniversary onward, holding onto the tradition. Some of the modifications we found to be rather odd, such as the 4th anniversary being an electrical appliance. Many of the dated gifts such as ivory, pottery, and silk have been swapped out for a modern alternative since they are either dated or illegal.
This list is a guide after all. If your spouse only wants to eat pizza and watch Netflix for your anniversary, do it. The point of anniversaries is to celebrate each other and your love, but giving gold and diamonds, you can never go wrong with that. Happy anniversary to everyone celebrating one soon!
