Your first anniversary is a huge milestone in your marriage. That first anniversary is worth a celebration as well as a memorable gift to mark the occasion.

Gift giving for anniversaries dates back for centuries. There are traditional gifts that couples have given each year. The gifts are chosen by a specific material.

The 60th-anniversary gift ends with an item made from diamonds, the strongest substance.
