It doesn’t matter if it’s your first or your fiftieth – each wedding anniversary is special and at Aspinal of London, we can help you mark every anniversary with the gift they deserve. However, finding the balance between style and sentimentality can sometimes prove tricky.
To give you some inspiration, Aspinal of London has drawn on tradition and added a dash of luxury. Read on to discover the ultimate anniversary gift for your lucky loved one.
Our accessories, paired with spectacular and unforgettable getaways will ensure that your anniversaries and memories last a lifetime.
1st Anniversary: Paper
Paper might not shout luxury but, with a little inspiration, your first-anniversary gift can be something to truly treasure. A Refillable Journal, crafted from beautifully supple Italian calf leather, is a touching memento.
Thick, quality pages uphold the luxury of the vegetable tanned leather binding, while the refillable design ensures it can be used for years to come. A personal message embossed upon the cover will add the special finishing touch.
If you’re planning a getaway, this journal is a wonderfully rustic way to make a travel diary you can keep forever.
2nd Anniversary: Cotton
When it comes to shopping for your soul mate, sometimes the rules are made to be broken. So take the traditional second-anniversary gift, cotton, in a more sumptuous direction and indulge them with a Cashmere Blend Scarf. From whimsical woodland scenes to mystical Pegasus motifs and delicate constellation prints, capture their unique style.
3rd Anniversary: Leather
The third anniversary is simply made for those with an eye for style: leather is the traditional way to mark the occasion. The perfect gift? A timeless leather handbag of course – the perfect accompaniment for your Michelin Starred dining experience.
Our Large Lottie in tactile black pebble calf’s leather is a refined classic which will slip seamlessly into any wardrobe, whether their style is understated or bold. If you’re looking for an extra touch, the option to personalise with initials creates a truly unique gift.
5th Anniversary: Wood
Mark your fifth year together with a meticulously crafted Chess Set. Each hand carved chess piece is perfectly weighted and comes complete with a felted base, while the board is printed upon buttery-soft lambskin leather. A hand-bound leather hide tray completes the set. Such a classic gift is sure to stand the test of time; a memento to be treasured year after year.
10th Anniversary: Tin
While many of the traditional gifts are still taken literally, tin has come to play a more symbolic role, with silver, keepsake coins and jewellery providing modern alternatives. A striking combination of all three, our Farthing Cufflinks will sit stylishly within any gent’s cufflink collection. Crafted from genuine farthing coins, they mix vintage inspiration and modern refinement – the perfect way to mark a decade.
15th Anniversary: Crystal
Your crystal anniversary is the chance to add in a touch of sparkle to your gift. Traditionally, ornamental glassware would fit the bill, but we think something wearable is the perfect way to mark modern romance. Our stunning Mon Chere Heart Pendant, which features 0.6-carat diamonds delicately set within an 18ct gold white heart design, is sure to become their most prized possession.
