This list has been compiled from an extensive list of sources. Most agree on the basics, but have slight variations. The only significantly different list was the alternative modern anniversary list of jewelry, that came from the Jewelry Industry Council.

Keep in mind that these are only gift ideas. They are just suggestions to make it easier to choose a gift. If you decide to give an anniversary gift that doesn't fit the list... that's fine. The only way to really go wrong with an wedding anniversary gift not give one at all! Coming up with creative gift ideas can be hard. Jewelry is always safe, but an original gift can work, too! One article suggests combinations of traditional and modern that work for the early anniversaries. Home Indulgences adds flowers to the list. The best advice may be a quote from the Latin scholar, Plautus who wrote, "Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words."
