17th Wedding Anniversary

The Basics

Traditional Gift: Furniture

Interestingly, after 15 years the traditional gifts tend to go up in five year intervals. However, that doesn’t mean you can get out of buying a gift on your seventeenth anniversary!

Furniture is a traditional gift.

Modern Gift: Furniture/ Shell Roses

A modern 17th wedding anniversary present is furniture.

That could mean many things. 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.
