Do people really buy traditional anniversary gifts?

As you browse the list of traditional milestone anniversary gifts, the popular phrase ‘good things come to those who wait’ may spring to mind, with the longest marriages traditionally celebrated with the most valuable gifts. Although these milestone gifts are designed to be a symbolic representation of a life together, for many couples the traditional gifts are not a fitting tribute to their special marriages. 

If you are wondering whether you really have to stretch to gold, silver and diamonds, there is no need to panic. Although the traditional list may provide inspiration, in reality, every couple will appreciate the careful thought and consideration which goes into choosing a unique gift over a generic high-value gift.
