Traditional Gift: Furniture

Although traditional gifts aren't usually stated for every year after the 15th anniversary, many do consider furniture to be a traditional gift for the 17th anniversary.

The furniture itself doesn't have to be traditional. Choose something which reflects your tastes, activities and interests as a couple.

Furniture can be made from a wide variety of materials, with wood, metal, plastic and glass being amongst the most popular.

There's no limit to what types of furniture can be bought, from large, grand pieces and sets, to smaller individual pieces for specific tasks.

Perhaps pick a smaller piece of furniture that you know your partner has always wanted, like a rocking chair or a table. It might be worth forgoing a little of the romance for larger items and decide together what you want for your home.

We've already discussed the gift of furniture, also listed as a modern 17th anniversary gift, so let's turn our attention to shell roses.

You know what roses are, and also what shells are, but you may never have observed shell roses.

As the name suggests, this is a depiction/model of a rose flower, made from various seashells.

Various shells can be used, including oyster, auger, nautilus and snail shells.

As you might imagine, this is a handmade gift which can either be created by you, or from a skilled artist either locally or via various online craft sites.

Make the gift extra special by choosing from handmade artisan jewelry, with the same convenience of Amazon online shopping.
