When you are looking for an Anniversary Card you could do a lot worse than sending one of Scribbler’s fantastic Anniversary Cards. Our personalised anniversary cards are perfect for that special moment when you are trying to hunt down special cards for anniversary celebrations. After all, each and every wedding anniversary card is important and full of meaning.
Each year of marriage is assigned a special anniversary gift, a tradition handed down from generation to generation, so when you are looking for cards for wedding anniversary gifts you should try to pick one that matches the specific year. You won’t find many personalised card websites that have specific anniversary greeting cards for each year of marriage, so you’re often better off choosing something that would go down well whether it’s year one or year sixty eight!
To the average husband anniversary cards all blend into each other anyway, so we’re going to take the opportunity to remind you poor fellows which anniversary is which! We warn you that by the time you’ve been married for 60 years the gifts get quite pricy so you’d better start saving well before the wedding if you don’t want to re-mortgage your house at any time.
Your first anniversary card can be a gift in itself, as the traditional accompaniment to 1st anniversary cards is paper – not too difficult eh? Well it gets harder from here. You need to find some cotton to go with your second anniversary card – a t-shirt saying ‘My husband gave me this lousy tee shirt with my 2nd anniversary card’. In year three you have to give leather. Now, we don’t want to know what sort of kinky presents most people give with their 3rd anniversary cards so we’ll move swiftly onwards. Linen accompanies your 4th anniversary card, and you’ll probably be needed a new set of sheets by then anyway. If you manage to send a 5th anniversary card you better give some wood to go along with it, and iron to accompany your 6th anniversary cards. A gift of copper goes with the 7th anniversary card and bronze with the 8th anniversary cards (do we feel some serious fake tan coming on here?). If, by the time you send your ninth anniversary card you’re going a bit potty, well just buy some pottery and buy a tin of baked beans with your 10th anniversary card. Steel, silk, lace, ivory and crystal make up the next five years, and by the time you have been married for twenty years you need to give some china with your 20th anniversary cards (or run away to china if you’ve had enough.)
After this point things start to get really pricy. 30th anniversary cards need a gift of pearls if they are going to cut the mustard, and 40th anniversary cards require you to stump up for a ruby (yes a real ruby, like in the crown jewels). Your fiftieth anniversary card means gold, but if you’ve got to the point where you are sending 50th anniversary cards your wedding ring is probably getting a bit threadbare anyway. If you make it to the day when you send a 60th anniversary card then the lady definitely deserves diamonds for putting up with you for so long. After all, not many marriages are robust enough to last 60 years, and sixtieth anniversary cards really are something very special.
Some of these traditional gifts are now becoming lost traditions, with modern couples settling for new-fangled personalised anniversary cards and a meal in a nice restaurant. Anniversary Cards should be enough without an expensive gift, but just make sure that you take enough time to find the perfect anniversary cards for your loving partner.
