strong married couple together after 20 yearsThese years include the first anniversary that is considered a major milestone for any marriage, this, of course is the Silver Wedding (25 years) and then 5 years later is the also popular Pearl Wedding (30 years.)

As you’ve been with one another for almost 30 years you will know exactly what the other likes when it comes to furniture. Maybe take advantage of this and buy a love seat for the living room or some garden furniture if the warmer months are beckoning?

Whatever you choose there are hundreds of different types of furniture you can pick from, and as furniture is a modern or contemporary gift, you could splash out and buy something really chic to make a statement in your home or even give it a make-over.

Whatever you choose to buy for your 29th wedding anniversary make sure you buy gifts that are memorable and your loved one will adore. If she loves perfume then buy some. If he loves furniture then buy your husband a modern-design desk, chair or table. Something that is practical and beautiful at the same time. You will use the furniture almost every day so think of it as an investment and one that has special meaning for you as it was bought for your 29th wedding anniversary gift.
