Although some may find the list of tradition and modern gifts don’t allow for creativity, others think just the opposite. And then there are also the people who are just happy to have a starting point! With so many differing opinions, it makes you wonder how two of these lists came to be in the first place. That’s where the trail goes cold. No one is entirely sure when or why the first traditional list was created. It’s estimated that it was during the Victorian Era when anniversary parties were popular.
As for the modern list, it was updated to provide more practical options. They also added gifts for years that the traditional list didn’t cover, all the way to 75 years.
Whether or not you chose to use these lists are completely up to you. Chances are your spouse will be fine with anything you get, or perhaps they don’t even know the lists exist. It does provide a nice starting point if you’re not quite sure what to get though. Rather than having millions of item to pick from, you can narrow it down to only those that involve “paper”. And on the flip side, some people will enjoy the challenge of finding a unique gift within the category that will be appreciated.
