Anniversary Gift Ideas and Tradition Articles — 4th year anniversary

Anniversary Gifts by Year

Giving specific gifts to commemorate anniversary years likely began in Ancient Rome or Medieval Europe, but most evidence points to the tradition beginning in 18th-century Germany and Netherlands. German and Dutch culture have both celebrated the 25th and 50th anniversaries through gifts of silver and gold, mainly wreaths, since the 1700s. The tradition carried over into the UK during the Victorian era, when love matches for marriage became more common, eventually making its way to the United States with the colonization of the New World.
