The first anniversary is one of the most celebrated of all anniversaries and is celebrated by both dating and married couples.It is probably also one of the most romantic anniversaries.

Some gift stores and websites have created their own lists of suggestions but nothing as widely recognized as the wedding anniversary symbol list first created by Emily Post in 1922.

However if you have a good thing going, it is important to let your partner in the relationship know that you appreciate them.

The lists of symbols and gifts for wedding anniversaries is often written and talked about. Dating anniversaries tend to be celebrated in months rather than years.

There does not appear to be a similar universally accepted gift guide or suggested list for dating anniversaries.

Post’s 1922 list included gifts for first, fifth, tenth, fifteenth, twentieth, twenty-fifth and fiftieth anniversaries.

In 1957, Emily Post expanded her anniversary gift category list to include yearly gift categories for every anniversary from the first anniversary to the fifteenth anniversary and gifts for every fifth anniversary celebrated after the fifteenth anniversary.

Some of the most appreciated anniversary gifts revolve around time the couple can spend together enjoying some activity or event together.

The first month is a big deal and most women if not the men will expect some sort of recognition of the conclusion of one month of dating.

To help in celebrating these occasions are special gifts, one assigned to each anniversary and each with its own material and symbolic value.

In the United States, the wedding anniversary symbols begin simply, with paper and flowers, and gradually increase in substance and value.

Being a very practical person Post’s anniversary gift categories were such that you could find inexpensive gifts that fit the early year’s category types and practical gifts that fit many of the later year’s categories. Many couples try to go a bit off script to find themed gifts associated with a great experience they shared.
