Congratulations! It’s your last year as a teen – in wedding anniversary terms anyway!
By the time your 19th wedding anniversary comes along, your marriage is probably more durable than ever before, but without losing any of its shine.
According to the list of anniversary gifts by year, there’s no gift traditionally associated with the occasion. But that hasn’t stopped us from putting together a few glorious 19th anniversary gift ideas! Use our suggestions to spoil your partner and make your celebration all the more memorable.
What Is The Gift for a 19th Wedding Anniversary?
Modern Gift – Bronze
The durability of bronze is one of the reasons the metal is used for making ships’ propellers, electrical contacts and musical instruments. It is also used for making medals, minting coins and in artistic sculptures. Like bronze, the relationship you and your spouse have created after a 19 year marriage is tough, lasting and beautiful.
Gemstone – Aquamarine
Aquamarine is the colour of a tropical sea on a sunny day, so it’s no surprise that the gemstone’s name means ‘water of the sea’. In ancient times, the gem was used as a lucky charm by sailors and fishermen. More recently, the stone has been associated with courage, healing, love and friendship, everything that a committed marriage needs.
Flower – Chrysanthemum
In the UK and USA, the chrysanthemum is the traditional 19th wedding anniversary flower and it symbolizes loyalty, devoted love, long life and joy. The profusion of petals makes them look wonderful when presented in a bunch, or with other flowers as part of a bouquet. In Italy and Spain, the flower for the occasion is honeysuckle.
19th Wedding Anniversary Gifts For Her
Your marriage is in the last of its teen years and your relationship has matured into something precious. Honour her with a 19th anniversary gift that’s a token of your love and esteem.
Gold and silver usually get all the attention when it comes to wedding anniversary gifts of jewellery. Your 19th wedding anniversary is the perfect opportunity to discover the magic of bronze. Its earthy tones will make her look like a timeless goddess who chose you above all others to receive her love. She’ll love the bold but elegant designs from Faris Jewelry which are bound to transform any of her outfits into a striking ensemble.
Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the luckiest guy in the whole world? Give her a bronze 19th anniversary gift that adds a touch of style and a sense of space to your home. A mirror framed in bronze is perfect for those who prefer earthier colours to the shine of silver or gold.
Bronze Candle Holder
A beautiful candle holder with a bronze finish is another way of bringing the modern tradition into her anniversary gift box. You can find classic candlesticks, quirky holders or simple but stunning Moroccan-style candle holders with laser-cut fretwork. If you don’t want to give her an empty holder, include a luxury scented candle with your gift. The warm romantic glow and sensual fragrances will really set the mood for that romantic anniversary date.
Chrysanthemum flowers have long been a favourite subject for embroiderers in the East and West. Let the traditional flower for the 19th wedding anniversary inspire a gift with a difference. Give her something that features one or more embroidered chrysanthemums. Whether it’s a framed piece or something she can wear, such as this gorgeous navy silk Japanese yukata, it’s sure to take her breath away.
The dazzling beauty of aquamarine makes it a popular stone with many jewellers and their customers. There is no shortage of rings, earrings, pendants, and bracelets that feature the stone. The trick is to find a 19th anniversary gift that matches her style and her personality. A good place to start is with this gorgeous raw aquamarine necklace with a gold chain. The simple design really lets the vivid blue colour of the 19th anniversary gemstone stand out.
A Class In Beauty
Make your anniversary gift to her a hands-on experience in which she will be immersed in beauty. Treat her to a spa day, let her craft her own personalised fragrance with top perfumiers, or let her learn the finer arts of flower arranging from a master. She’ll love that you’ve taken the time to pick a gift that’ll broaden her horizons and help her create new memories.
An Aquatic Fragrance
The clean, refreshing scents that comprise the aquatic family of fragrances make them suitable to be worn anytime, anywhere. The oceanic associations of aquamarine have inspired many women’s fragrances that would make wonderful gifts for a 19th wedding anniversary. If you would like to surprise your wife with a bottle of perfume, consider Hermes’ Eau des Merveilles Bleue which comes in an enchanting aquamarine bottle.
19th Wedding Anniversary Gifts For Him
Your relationship is like a work of art. Acknowledge and honour his part in it with a 19th anniversary gift that he will love. Let our suggestions help you to find something luxurious.
‘The Two of Us’ Bronze Sculpture
Bronze remains a popular medium for sculptors, whether they produce replicas of ancient artefacts or modern figurines. Add a touch of tradition to the day by giving him a romantic bronze sculpture that expresses how you’ll always be by his side. Simple yet expressive, these cast bronze have a modern and rustic rugged style, making it the perfect anniversary keepsake for your husband.
The Thrill of Adventure
Give him a 19th anniversary gift that will get his heart racing. If he’s the outdoorsy, adventurous type, let him experience the thrill of racing a land yacht or mountain biking on the UK’s top trails. You could even send him on a helicopter ride or on an aerobatic loop the loop. The sky is the limit!
Luxury Bronze Watch
Steel, titanium, and other metals are used for men’s watches so often that bronze timepieces can seem like a novelty. They aren’t, of course. Instead, a bronze watch could be one of the best additions to his collection. Not only are they durable, but their unique colour makes them stand out from other watches.
What’s more, the patina that forms over time makes each watch totally unique. Choose one such as the Panerai Submersible Bronzo for a remarkable 19th anniversary gift. He’ll think of you every time he wears it.
Aquamarine Clothing Or Accessories
An aquamarine gift needn’t be limited to gemstones. You can find clothing and accessories in the beautiful shade of blue that may look fantastic on him. There are many options available, from understated silk ties to bold, bright shirts such as this dress shirt from Calvin Klein.
The colours and qualities of bronze have inspired perfumiers in various ways, whether it’s been in the crafting and naming of fragrances or in the colours used in the packaging. If you want to reference the modern 19th wedding anniversary gift without actually giving him a piece of bronze, opt for a cologne. Pick something such as Jo Malone’s Bronze Wood and Leather cologne intense, which smells of sultry leather encased in a medley of woods.
Art In The Colours Of Bronze And Aquamarine
If he’s an art lover he may appreciate a painting or print that includes the colours of bronze and aquamarine. If you cannot find anything at your local galleries, you could commission a piece from an artist you admire. Yiull Damaso is a South African artist who works with rust (yes, rust) to create stunning paintings and other works in hues of aquamarine, turquoise, and bronze. He ships internationally so distance is no object.
The colour of aquamarine adds a jewel-like appearance when used in glass or crystal barware. If he takes pride in his home bar, why not get a decanter and glasses as his 19th wedding anniversary gift? Choose something special, such as the handmade Girih decanter by Moser for Linley. Consider adding the Girih highball glasses to make a set.
19th Wedding Anniversary Gifts For Couples
Celebrate your 19th wedding anniversary together and treat yourselves to something special that marks the occasion. Whether you want to do it in style, with an adventurous spirit, or in a way that offers excellent entertainment, you can find the perfect experience with us.
A Romantic Day Out
Why not celebrate your wedding anniversary with a lazy day out? Stroll through a favourite park and eat ice-cream under a tree near the duck pond. Visit the local museum or explore art galleries before enjoying a simple lunch at a café. Set off into the countryside and enjoy a romantic picnic. Relax and enjoy one another’s company on your 19th wedding anniversary and revel in your many years of fun, laughter and love.
Theatre And Dinner
Mark 19 years together with a classic date night experience. Recreate a memorable date you had or rely on the tried and tested combination of taking in a show at a theatre before enjoying a delicious dinner.
A Holiday Of Sun And Sea
Forget metal and gemstones. Reinterpret modern and traditional 19th anniversary gifts with a trip that offers you opportunities to bronze yourselves under the sun and to splash in warm seawater.
Explore the golden beaches of Mozambique, the paradise that is Madagascar, or the bliss of the Bahamas on the holiday of a lifetime.
