|Wedding anniversaries are generally a time
for celebrating the date you were married. There are traditional anniversary names that have been

It is wonderful to use your imagination to create the perfect anniversary gift for your spouse. For instance, if you chose a traditional gift for your first anniversary (paper), the gift could be a stock certificate, personalized stationery, a magazine subscription or the map to a city you will go to as a vacation/anniversary gift (along with airplane tickets which are also paper). If you are lacking funds, a card or letter telling how much your spouse means to you and listing all the wonderful reasons you love him/her would be as much appreciated as the most expensive gift.
If you went with the modern name of clocks, you could give an engraved wrist watch, a grandfather clock, or even a trip to the Clock Museum in Rockford, IL. You are only limited by your imagination and pocket book.
