Wedding Anniversary Gifts by Year List

How was this wacky wedding anniversary by year gift list created? Who was the genius who decided that the 44th anniversary should be celebrated with groceries? Well, making a romantic meal at home does it! Or shop for groceries in Hawaii, Paris or Rome!

Paper for your first anniversary? Travel, concert or sports tickets will do nicely. Or return to your honeymoon destination (also for the 43rd). Check out Travel Adventure and Experiences located in many U.S. cities for fun-filled day tours and longer. Textiles for the 13th? Satin sheets and sexy lingerie spice it up!

Put a creative spin on this list, and combine traditional and modern gift ideas, flowers or gemstones. The best anniversary gift you can give each other is to create fun, loving memories.
