39th year Wedding Anniversary

39th year wedding anniversary modern theme is LaceWhen it comes to thinking of items to buy for your 39th year wedding anniversary gift, you have a wide range of choices, and that’s because there aren’t any traditional symbols or items associated with it. The earlier years of your marriage have certain traditional gemstones and items connected to them but the 39th year wedding anniversary do not have those. This means you are free to think of unique and wonderful things to buy, and while you might think that it could be difficult we have a variety of wedding anniversary gifts to give you plenty of inspiration.

Normally, wedding anniversary gifts such as the first wedding anniversary are linked with paper, so you would buy something with that material in the gift. However, as time goes by the traditional items do not carry through, but fear not, you know exactly what your partner likes and dislikes so the onus is on you to pull through with a fantastic gift or selection of presents that your wife or husband would love.

It might be that you need something new for your home together or if you have a favorite place to visit then you could book a weekend away. As you’re coming up to the 40th year wedding anniversary you could be planning something incredible for that but for the 39th wedding anniversary gift you could buy a handful of smaller presents for your spouse.

Other wedding anniversaries have flowers associated with each year but the 39th doesn’t. However, if your wife loves a certain type of flower then you could buy a lovely bouquet for her and she’ll adore them, especially if you have them delivered to your home. From lilies to roses, daffodils to azaleas there are many to choose from and we have more ideas for wedding anniversary gifts located on our website to help give you the inspiration you need.

There is a modern version of the wedding anniversary gift that is associated with the 39th year and that is lace. Lace is a stunning fabric that is usually handmade and while it was very popular in the 15th and 16th centuries, it’s certainly come back into fashion and it carries a very regal and upmarket look. Buy your wife a stunning lace outfit or a blouse that has lace in it which will be perfect as a 39th year wedding anniversary gift.

As you can see, there aren’t any traditional items connected to the 39th year of marriage but you could opt for the modern equivalent and buy something with lace in it as well as a nice bunch of flowers for your wife. Alternatively, you could simply buy your spouse’s favorite item and they will know just how much they mean to you!

If she loves pink roses or lilies, you can go ahead and order them so they arrive on your anniversary date.

There might not be any modern or traditional symbols attached to the 38th year wedding anniversary but there is beryl, which is a crystal that is very rare and formed from aluminium cyclosilicate.

Whether you choose beryl or a selection of flowers to be sent to your home for your wife, you can be assured that it will be a perfect gift.

Where it’s from will affect the colour of it, but you can be sure it will sparkle and look absolutely fantastic when the light catches it.

So, when you need a 38th year wedding anniversary gift choose a fantastic rock called beryl or mix and match our other recommendations from other anniversary years and buy your partner something really special this year.

Making sure you have nice things and items to enjoy yourselves is made so much better when you share them so buy something that both of you can enjoy.

There is one item that is associated with the 34th wedding anniversary and that is the opal. It’s a stunning gemstone but it’s more connected to the modern aspect of buying gifts for wedding anniversaries rather than a traditional gemstone that are usually connected to other years. The opal comes in many different shades from white to yellow, red to blue and even green or brown. A colourless opal is also available but with those stunning threads of colour slicing through the gem more often than not people will opt for the coloured ones. They are perfect for jewellery, maybe a bracelet, pendant or necklace could have opals integrated into them? Or you could buy a ring and both of you will remember this 34th wedding anniversary gift for the rest of your lives together. Make this day very special and buy a great gift so that you pay homage to your wedding day and all of the years you’ve been married together.

Whatever you buy as a 34th wedding anniversary gift, make sure you can both enjoy it. Although there aren’t flowers or traditional items associated with the year, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy some. If there are items that are missing from your home or need replaced, maybe the wedding anniversary is the time to do it?

Even though there are no flowers or gemstones, the amethyst is classed as a modern day themed gift, associated with the 33rd wedding anniversary, you can still go ahead and buy some gifts that aren’t traditionally connected to the date.
