Flower Wedding Anniversary Gifts List

flower wedding anniversary gifts

Themes for flower wedding anniversary gifts come from a list of popular flowers that are associated with each specific year. The different years, the majority of the time, have different flower associated with that year, here we are talking about the appropriate Flower Anniversary List, other popular lists include the the Modern, Traditional and Gemstone lists. The general idea behind this is so that you can select a gift with the theme of the material mentioned for the year thus making it easier to select an appropriate gift.

The Flower Wedding Anniversary Gifts List

The Flower Wedding Anniversary list has developed over the generations into the one shown below, some of the years have variations on the theme depending upon who has published the list. More history of how the wedding list evolved is available on our Flower Wedding List History page

Below in the list the anniversary year will link you to pages with ideas available from all the Gift lists (e.g. Traditional, Modern, Gemstone and Flower) or choose the flowers for the year you are celebrating, or buying for, for a list of wedding anniversary gifts specific to that flower and year.

Flower Wedding Anniversary Gifts List

Milestone Flower wedding anniversary gifts

This anniversary gift list is one of the only lists to break with the tradition and not use the traditional themes for the major anniversaries, instead they suggest a flower for those milestone years thus for an unusual idea you could use the flower wedding anniversary gifts list as the ideal present.

Saying it with Flowers

The meanings of flowers from the Flower wedding anniversary gifts can be found below, romantics naturally write each other love-letters be it via text, email or the true sense of the words and actually post a letter. Messages however may be sent – sometimes by a third person who is not in their happy secret – or sentiments exchanged without the written, or even the spoken word, and it is here that the language of flowers – one of the sweetest and most charming languages in the world it will be found valuable.

Every flower has a meaning, and it is possible to say ” I love you,” or “ Do you love me?” or to send a greeting, a message of hope or encouragement, by the simple means of a spray of blossom or a single flower rightly chosen. Here are the meanings of all the better-known flowers, many of which you may find growing in your own gardens or by the wayside.

Almond. This lovely blossom, coming so early in the year, means “hope,” and a girl giving a spray to her boyfriend could by this means tell him that there is a chance for him to become more than a friend, for as an old poet puts it :

“The hope, in dreams of a happier hour,

That alights on misery’s brow,

Springs out of the silvery almond flower,

That blooms on a leafless bough.”

Apple blossom. This signifies “I have heard of you,” and could be given by a girl or a young man who has at last achieved an introduction for which they have been waiting.

Asphodel. This flower has rather a sad meaning, for it signifies regret for a lost love, and to wear the asphodel means to mourn.

Bay-leaf. This signifies : ” I change but in death,” and would be a beautiful message to send to an absent beloved.

Belladonna (Deadly Nightshade) Owing to it’s poisonous berries this may not seem a very pleasant blossom, yet, in the flower language, it is very useful, for it means “silence” and to those lovers who wish to keep their romance a tender secret between themselves, may be very helpful at times.

Bergamot. Any girl receiving this may regard it as a compliment, for it means “sweetness.”

Bilberry. Warning may be given by means of this plant, for it means “treachery,” and can thus convey a message that a trouble-maker is near.

One to whom love had come at first sight might well wear a red flower, for this means “Alas, for my poor heart.” A girl may dash her boy’s hopes with a yellow carnation, since this signifies “refusal,” while woe to the boy who is offered a striped one, with its meaning of “disdain.”

Dog-violet. This means what all sweethearts crave: “Faithfulness.”

Eglantine (sweetbriar). This means: “I wound to heal,” and stands for the mingled pleasure and pain of love. Here is a beautiful little verse about it :

“From this bleeding hand of mine,

He who plucks the sweets shall prove

Many thorns to be in love.”  Robert Herrick.

Before the day is over.”

Fennel. This plant is said to bring its wearer “courage.”

Fern. This means what we should all like to feel we possess, “fascination.”

Forget-me-not. This has always been a lovers’ flower, and its name is its meaning. Legend tells us that it got its name from a sad incident. Two lovers were strolling by a river when the girl expressed a wish for some of the little flowers which grew by the edge of the water. Her companion began to pluck them for her, overbalanced and fell in. The current was strong and as he was swept away he flung the flowers he had gathered at her feet and cried: “Forget-me-not.”

Foxglove. This is supposed to be the fairies’ flower, but it has not a fairy meaning, since it stands for “insincerity.”

Jonquil. Anyone who loves could choose this flower, which murmurs: “I desire a return of affection.”

Laburnum. A flower which would appeal to the jilted, for it 1neans “forsaken.”

Laurel. The leaves of this shrub stand for “glory,” which is the reason a victor’s crown was always twined with them.

Lavender. It seems strange that so charming a bloom should bear the ugly meaning “distrust,” but there is an old belief that a certain poisonous snake always hid in the lavender bushes, hence they were to be distrusted.

Lilac. A meaning as sweet as its perfume: “First thoughts of love.”

Lily. The chosen flower of brides, it signifies “purity and sweetness,”

Lily of the Valley. This flower might well be worn by the girl who is going to meet her sweetheart after a long absence, for it means “return of happiness.”

London Pride. Not to be worn on serious occasion, since it stands for “frivolity.”

Maiden-hair. “Secrecy” is the word whispered by this delicate fern.

Marigold. A bright flower with a dark meaning, for it expresses “grief.”

Mignonette. A great compliment may be conveyed by this, for it says: “Your qualities surpass even your charms.”

Mistletoe. We all know what is associated with this plant, but its real meaning is: “I surmount difficulties.”

Moss Rose. Here is a sweet way of making a proposal, for this lovely flower is “a confession of love.”

Mountain Ash. This means “prudence,” and was in earlier times supposed to be a guard against witchcraft.

Myrtle. There is no wonder that brides so often carry this in their wedding bouquets, for it expresses “love.”

Narcissus. The unselfish will not choose this, for it means “self­love.”

Nettle. This has a meaning very suited to it, for it says: “You are cruel.”

Pink. “Pure love ” is expressed by this old favourite.

Poppy. This is a flaunting flower, and we need not be surprised that it means “extravagance.”

Pyrethrum. This might be favoured by the girl whose sweetheart doubts her, for it says : “I have not changed; you wrong me.”

Rhododendron. A flower broken from this bids you “beware.”

Rose. The queen of flowers could not mean anything but “love,” while the old-fashioned but fragrant cabbage rose is “a messenger of love.”

Sage. ” Esteem” is expressed by this herb.

Salvia. This flower bears the sweet message: ” I think of thee.”

Scilla. This flower aims at re­conciliation, for it whispers: “Forgive and forget.”

Snapdragon. This signifies “presumption.”

Snowdrop. As this is one of the first flowers of the year it is fitting that it should express “hope.”

Sunflower. “Adoration” is the meaning of this flower.

Thrift. A flower with a pleasant meaning, for it expresses “sympathy.”

Tulip. Most girls would appreciate the message conveyed by this flower, for it stands for “a declaration of love.”

Violet. Since this little flower hides in its leaves we can understand why it expresses “modesty.”

Wallflower. This sweet, old-fashioned flower expresses a beautiful virtue: “fidelity in adversity.”

If, by good fortune, your sweetheart should find a four-leaved clover and present it to you, you may take it as a sign of the greatest luck and happiness. Here is a little beautiful legend attached to this:

Three beautiful sisters, Faith, Hope and Charity, came to visit the earth, and wherever their footsteps pressed there sprang up the fragrant clover blossoms. more But after them came an even more wonderful being whose name “Love,” and it was for him that there sprung the four-leafed clover.

Traditional Wedding Anniversary Gifts List

The different years, the majority of the time, have different themes or materials associated with that year along with different lists, here we are talking about the Traditional Anniversary List, other popular lists include the the Modern, Gemstone or Flower lists. The general idea behind this is so that you can select a gift with the theme of the material mentioned for the year thus making it easier to select an appropriate gift.

The Traditional Wedding Anniversary Gifts List

The traditional wedding anniversary list has developed over the generations into the one shown below, some of the years have variations on the theme depending upon who has published the list. More history of how the wedding list evolved is available on our Traditional Wedding List History page.

Knight and his Lady with flowersThe reason it is called the traditional list is simply because it is the oldest wedding anniversary gifts list in existence, there is evidence that prior to the modern anniversary list being produced the list was known as the Wedding Anniversary List.

Below in the list the anniversary year will link you to pages with ideas available from all the Gift lists (e.g. Traditional, Modern, Gemstone and Flower) or choose the traditional material for the year you are celebrating, or buying for, for a list of wedding anniversary gifts specific to that traditional material and year.
Some years have no material or theme under the traditional anniversary list, below the fiftieth these anniversaries will have a theme in the Modern Anniversary List. Above the 50th they have no theme or material.

Traditional Wedding Anniversary Material List

There are a few variations with the traditional wedding anniversary gifts list shown above possibly the largest one being that for the first wedding anniversary as, in the United Kingdom and Europe, the 1st anniversary traditionally used to be Cotton with the second year being Paper themed. This has however been reversed now to follow the american traditional theme of Paper for the 1st year anniversary and Cotton for the 2nd year. The reason behind this is attributed to globalisation and the internet making data more accessible.

There are other variations on the traditional theme and again these tend to be local (read Country) based, for example in Germany there is also a tradition to celebrate  the Copper Anniversary which is 12 and a half years or half way through a Jubilee (which is 25 years)

All Important traditional wedding anniversary gifts

The traditional wedding anniversary gifts list is where all the important and major anniversaries come from and indeed the 25th anniversary and 50th anniversary are the oldest known anniversaries being celebrated as having symbols with the forma being the Silver Wedding and the latter Golden Wedding these can be traced back into early European history.
