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

12th year wedding anniversary gift ideas

Time flies when you are having fun. As hard it may be to believe that it has been 12 years since you two said “I do” on your wedding date. Three cheers for a dozen years!

People are usually 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 recognition and celebration.

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 and therefore called the silk anniversary.

Silk is often used as a symbol of luxury, wealth and good fortune. Because of its quality, properties that soothe and the tactile pleasure it presents, it is known as the ‘Queen of textiles’, and is gifted for anniversaries like the 12th wedding anniversary. Silk and fine linen being a home textile represent the life a couple has built together along with wealth, comfort, trust and beauty. It is a reminder of the happy memories shared and a gesture to show that better things are on the horizon and the best is yet to come.

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 is something the couple can enjoy together. Why not make your bed (in silk) and lie in it!
