The significance of 20th wedding anniversaries

A successful two decades together calls for some serious celebrations. If you have a 20th wedding anniversary coming up, you might be thinking about appropriate gift ideas.

20th wedding anniversary gift giving tips

Celebrating 20 years of marriage is quite rare in this day and age. It’s therefore a great milestone in the lives of the couple. In fact, celebrations are in order not in a subtle way but in a big way. Finding the right gift for the 20th anniversary is not easy. No gift can quantify the love you have for your spouse or loved ones. However, you can base your gift giving on traditional and modern day gifts which are china and platinum, respectively. Decide which of these would be most appreciated by the couple or your spouse. Once you have your theme in mind, you can proceed to list the kind of gifts that you can get. This calls for creativity but the good thing is that you don’t have to think hard and long since there are endless types of gifts you can work with as far and china and platinum are concerned.

Assess your budget to identify what sort of mementos you can afford first. It’s important to note that your gift doesn’t have to be an expensive one. The thought and the sentiment is by far more important. So always enclose a personal note from the heart with the gift and appreciation is sure to follow.


Gift ideas for 20th wedding anniversaries

Gifts are meant to be thoughtful. Like we always say, it’s the thought that matters. The gesture behind the gift is what makes your gift so special so you don’t have to raid your entire piggy bank just to buy one. However, an occasion as special as the 20th anniversary requires great attention, which means that you must bring out the creative guns. Let’s start with the traditional: china. China symbolises elegance, delicate beauty, subtle strength and inherent love. Contrary to what many people believe, gifts of china don’t have to be expensive. There are plenty of china tea sets, sculptures and jewellery boxes that can be bought at pocket-friendly prices. You could also offer a nice dinner at a good Chinese restaurant as your gift or a trip to the country.

Platinum is the modern theme. This metal is not only expensive (it’s more costly than gold), but it’s rare as well. You have plenty of gift ideas to work with when it comes to platinum, jewellery being one of them. Don’t despair, as there are cheaper options, for example platinum coated flowers. For music lovers, you may wish to consider buying an album that went platinum or, to make it that much more special, look for an album that went platinum in the year of the marriage. This would make quite a nostalgic and well thought-out gift. Of course, make sure it’s an artist they’re a fan of.

For flowers, the daylily is the customary anniversary choice. Combine this with china or platinum gifts, or decorate in it in a platinum coloured wrapping paper. If you wish to include gemstones, or another colour, to your gift, choose emerald as its the stone for this celebration.


Tips to choosing 20th wedding anniversary gifts

Wedding gifts should be bought with the couple in mind. While you may have your own suggestions on what would make a great gift, it’s important to remember that ultimate it’s their gift. If you know the couple on a personal level, you can be adventurous with the kind of gift you buy. It’s always good to buy presents that bring back memories. If your relationship is more casual, we suggest you work in the safety net of official gifts. Try to gather as much information you can about the couple to understand their likes and dislikes so you are able to gift something they’ll truly appreciate.

Are you aware you don’t have to buy a tangible gift? Experience gifts tend to be the most exciting. You could treat the couple to a night out or sign them up for a fun and short Chinese cooking lesson. You also could treat your spouse to a Chinese spa and retreat. The point is to be unique with your gift. Think about the value of the gift and its usefulness. Is it for decorative purposes or every day use? For example, if the couple loves to decorate, you could buy pieces they could use for their interior decor such as an antique Chinese lamp.

Things to consider

When buying a gift for the 20th anniversary, the number one priority is the couple. Consider their preferences and beliefs and look for a gift that’ll bring sentimental value. And while it’s good to buy a valuable gift for such a commendable milestone, always remember that value is not merely based on the cost.


Summary

It’s never easy purchasing anniversary gifts. There’s always the worry that your present may not be appreciated as you wish it to be, or that it may not be valuable enough. The pressure is even worse when dealing with anniversaries such as 20th anniversary because it’s difficult to find the right gift to celebrate 20 years of marriage. No gift can quantify such commitment and love. Well, you don’t need to feel the pressure if you have good gift ideas to work with and that’s where finder.com.au can step in to help.

If there’s only two things you remember when buying for the 20th anniversary, it’s that platinum and china are the base themes. Where you take those is up to you.
