Best Real Wedding Anniversary Gift List

The Wedding Anniversary Gift List is a really interesting list.

Things that you would never buy as an Anniversary Gift have somehow made it on the list.

Odd things like Textiles, Bloodstones, and Furniture!

Who made this List?

I did a lot of Research putting this list together. It’s gathered from tons of different sources (Some dating back to 1946!) and what I’ve found is rather crazy.

I’ve found not only One Anniversary Gift List, but Tons and Tons of them! All Different!

And Not One single Anniversary List that I found is the same. In fact, every list I found had huge differences between them.

How do you know which one is the correct one?

You don’t!

Why is there so much variance? Why are they inaccurate and half empty and contain Duplicate Gifts? Why doesn’t anyone acknowledge the 51st Anniversary? (Has no one made it that far?) (Don’t worry! I acknowledged it!)

Things like this bug me. It gets rather confusing. It’s made me realize that even though this gathered list is huge, the biggest available on the web, it really means diddly-squat! I mean the First Anniversary has 12 Gifts listed for it! Come on! You could practically buy anything and still hit the nail on the head!

Flowers, Gemstones, the Kitchen Sink?

Some Anniversaries have Flowers listed, some have Gemstones, some have Traditional Anniversary Gifts along with Modern Anniversary Gifts. How many Gifts do you need? Where do you even begin?

(Due note: The Anniversaries listed with a * at the end of them, mean there were no official Gifts for these Anniversaries, so I picked the best Gift of them all… Diamonds!)

Alright. Now that that’s done, let’s take a look at a couple of the items… Land? Ha! How about the Automobiles? (Notice it states more than one!) Ha ha ha ha! Alabaster? Optical Goods? Original Pictures?

The people that made these up were Crazy!

On our 43rd Anniversary I’m going to take you Traveling around the World… and then on our next Anniversary, the 44th, I’m going to Buy you Groceries! There is no logic here. No reasoning. It’s random and silly and useless.

“Here’s your Can of Prunes!”

The other thing that’s Funny, is that as the Anniversaries get bigger and older, the items on the list get shorter! What are they trying to say? You won’t live this long? Or If you’re together this long, you really don’t need anything? I don’t get it!

Here’s my take on the list…

Forget it!

Do people really believe these lists really stand for the Gifts that one must buy? I can’t think of one person that will say “Thanks for the Paper!” Heck, you could just buy an Anniversary Card and be done shopping! Ha! And I think it would be funny to buy her a Book! Bah ha ha! These Anniversary Lists are Out-Dated, Ancient and Old. It ain’t gonna fly any more!

Here’s what I say…

Throw this list away!

Forget the Leather and Lace (Unless you want your Anniversary Night to be memorable as well!), and get the Gift that always works! No Matter what Anniversary you’re on, whether it’s your Second Anniversary or 50th Anniversary, there’s one present that will never fail! One present that stands the test of time and is suitable for all Anniversaries and Special Events and Holidays and Occasions! What’s that Gift?

D I A M O N D S !

Only Diamonds will work as the BEST Anniversary gift in the World. You can’t go wrong with their Mystery and Sparkle and Brilliance and Beauty!

Diamonds touch the Heart and Soul. They bring out Emotions and Passion! Diamonds light up the eyes. They evoke hugs and kisses and smiles galore. It’s almost magical!

This Anniversary, give the gift that never ends. Diamonds Are Forever! Just like the Sands of Time, just like your Love, Diamonds live on. Happy Anniversary you Love Birds. May your Diamonds endure for generations to come, and many, many more!

P.S. If you get her a Vacuum for your 4th Anniversary, I want to be there! :)
