Whether you're years into a loving marriage or have just hit that first big dating milestone, an experience day is the perfect way to look back over your fondest memories while creating some incredible new ones, but where did the trend of giving anniversary gifts come from in the first place?

Wedding Anniversary Presents - where did they come from?

Taking a trip back to the Middle Ages, in the Germanic regions of Europe a husband would crown his wife with a silver wreath on the 25th anniversary of their wedding day and, if the couple was fortunate to live long enough, a golden wreath on their 50th anniversary (romantic, right?).

Since then the list has been padded out to include a special material for almost every year of marriage, starting with eight key milestone marriages - which encompassed paper, wood, tin, crystal, china, silver, gold, and diamond - before the Jewellers of America later expanded the list to include every one of the first 20 years of marriage and every five years thereafter.

The reason for such a modest start, with paper in the first year, before gradually ramping up to precious metals and expensive jewellery is to represent the progressive durability of the marriage relationship. As the years go by, the gifts increase in strength and worth until arriving at diamond, in the 75th year, if you're lucky enough to reach it!
