Recently we have noticed that more of our glass ornaments are being bought as Wedding Anniversary Gifts. For example, here is a recent review from one of our customers:
“Ruby red twisted glass. I have bought this for my husband as it is our ruby wedding coming up. I saw it online and took a couple of months to decide whether to buy or not. Would it look as good as in the photo? I have just unwrapped it and WOW I am delighted. It is a stunning piece and will remind us, hopefully for many years to come, of our ruby celebrations. Thank you.”
It got us to thinking about anniversaries and how quickly a year’s marriage becomes five, six years flies by and then 10 soon becomes a distant memory.
When you walk down the street and see an elderly couple, you wonder how long they have been married, what is their secret recipe and what trials and tribulations they have been through.
We have only been married 6 years this month, so I shall have to buy my ‘Sugar’ something nice. My secret is that I always get the last word in, though usually it’s ‘Yes Dear’!
If you are looking for wedding anniversary gifts, we have compiled a list of ones that seem to match with products in our store. Having said that, you could choose any one of our art glass pieces and we are sure the recipient will be delighted – not that we are biased 🙂
Here is a list of British Wedding Anniversaries and their accompanying material or gem, accompanied with a link to glass pieces we think are a good fit:
On your 75th Wedding Anniversary you receive a Telegram from the Queen. The 75th used to be known as the Diamond Anniversary, but the Diamond was changed to the 60th in recognition of Queen Victoria’s 60 Years on the throne – her Diamond Jubilee.
In fact, you actually receive a card and a personalised message from the Queen on your 60th, 65th, and 70th wedding anniversary and every year thereafter.
We still have a long way to go. It will probably be King William who sends our first personalised Royal Message!
