What Is the Traditional 20th Anniversary Gift?

The traditional twentieth anniversary gift is china. Strong and delicate at the same time, china symbolizes the combination of grace and durability necessary for a long-lasting marriage. Add new pieces that compliment your wedding china, or, if it is starting to wear out after twenty years of use, you can take this opportunity to replace it. Either way, your gift will be cherished for the next twenty years.

Emerald is the twentieth anniversary gemstone. While their natural green color symbolizes vitality and verdant new beginnings, emeralds are also believed to represent eternal love and the strong connection between spouses. Compared to rubies, the gemstone of passionate love, emeralds are known as the gemstone of deep, mature love.

While jewelry is always an excellent anniversary gift, you can also surprise and delight your spouse with a gift of emerald jewelry given on any special occasion during your twentieth year of marriage.

What Is the 20th Anniversary Flower?

Close-up of pink aster blooms with a text overlay that reads 'platinum'

Asters are the twentieth anniversary flower and are popular with florists because they grow in a wide variety of colors, each with a different meaning. Generally, asters represent love and faith but red asters specifically symbolize undying devotion while pink asters represent sensitive love, making either a good choice to include in an anniversary bouquet. If asters are unavailable or out of season, an anniversary bouquet of red roses will always be appreciated.
