12th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas for Him, Her and the Couple

12th year wedding anniversary gift ideas

It’s hard to believe that it has already been 12 years since you two said “I do” on your wedding date. Three cheers for a dozen years!

Many people are aware of anniversary gift themes such as platinum for 20 years, silver for 25 years, and gold for 50 years. However, the other milestones have received less attention but are no less significant. Every year of marriage is a commitment to one another of companionship, understanding, love, compromise, pleasure, sadness, and growth. So every year together deserves special recognition.

What is the traditional 12th wedding anniversary gift?

According to the traditional theme wedding anniversary, the perfect gift for the 12th year of marriage is silk, otherwise called the silk anniversary.

Silk is often used as a symbol of luxury, wealth and good fortune. It is the most precious textile in the world famously known as the ‘Queen of textiles’ and is gifted for anniversaries like the 12th wedding anniversary. Silk and fine linen being a home textile represents the life a couple has built together along with wealth, comfort, and beauty. It is a reminder of all the happy memories shared by the couple over the past twelve years.

Silk also symbolizes trust and loves everlasting quality.

What is the modern gift alternative?

The modern theme alternative is pearl jewellery, however we believe there is no substitute for the beauty and tactile pleasure of silk and it's something the couple can enjoy together.
