Now that you are well into your third decade of marriage, it’s the perfect time for reflection, appreciation and, in some cases, rekindling that romance. If you have fallen into the trap of a routine kind of lifestyle then it can be sad to think about just how close you once were with your spouse. Yes, you have grown together as individuals and as a couple, but you probably miss all that affection you enjoyed during the early years. So, use your anniversary to relight that fire with these great ideas for wedding anniversary flowers and gifts.
There is no specific flower associated with this anniversary. Which is great if you want the freedom to choose something especially romantic, sentimental or opulent. If you are looking for the best place to start, you can begin by searching the wedding anniversary flowers section at your favourite online florist. If you want to include just a bit of tradition, remember that you can incorporate the modern gift for this year and/or the colour associated with this anniversary into your flower order.
Modern gift ideas
There is technically no traditional gift for this anniversary but the modern gift is copper. There are many copper accessories out there as well as copper decorative items for your home. Even if your spouse does not need or want anything in particular, you could still look for something like a copper photo frame and add a picture of the two of you together. Another idea that includes copper is to add copper elements to your wedding anniversary flowers.
Green is the colour for this anniversary which makes it really easy to include in your wedding anniversary flowers. Just make sure that you include enough foliage and you’re all set! With a bit of copper and the perfect focal flowers, your spouse will feel loved and pampered for sure!
How about a gemstone?
Each year is associated with a different gemstone so, if you are feeling a bit lost in the ideas department, spinel is the gemstone for the 22nd anniversary. These gems are available in various colours including red, pink, orange, purple, blue, yellow and green. Since green is the colour associated with this anniversary, it might be the most sentimental option.
Don’t forget to plan a special date for the two of you. As important as it is to choose the perfect wedding anniversary flowers and gifts, it is even more important to make time for your spouse on this very special day.
