While the concept of giving anniversary gifts is likely centuries-old with roots in many cultures, the first recorded instance of the practice dates back to the 18th century German tradition of silberne hochzeit, a custom in which wives would receive silver wreaths from their husband and friends on their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. This tradition was no doubt influenced by royal silver jubilees, marking the twenty-fifth anniversary of a monarch’s reign.

The practice of giving specific anniversary gifts is an excellent way to provide direction to the gifts you give throughout your marriage. Read on to discover gift ideas for the silver jubilee.


What Is the 25th Anniversary Gift Theme?

Because the traditional, modern, and gemstone gift themes are all silver, the twenty-fifth anniversary is known as the “silver jubilee.” Silver is a precious metal prized for its distinct luster and valued for its resilient, yet malleable, physical properties. Because silver has a highly reflective surface when polished and can be easily shaped while maintaining a density that gives it a substantial feel, silver is a popular material for high-end items.

Ideas for gifts crafted of silver include jewelry and accessories, home decor and elegant tableware. When looking for a silver anniversary gift be sure to note whether or not the item is stamped with the number “925” to indicate that it is made from sterling silver, a metal alloy that consists of 95% pure silver mixed with other metals for greater strength and durability.

What Is the 25th Anniversary Flower?

Irises are the twenty-fifth anniversary flower. Associated with the goddess Iris who served as a messenger of the gods in Greek mythology, irises represent communication and wisdom. These showy flowers bloom in the late spring and early summer and are a favorite among florists for their height and vibrant colors. Giving an anniversary bouquet of irises symbolizes your love and affection, communicating deep emotion and admiration.

If irises are unavailable or out of season, then a bouquet of your spouse’s favorite flowers or red roses is sure to be appreciated.
