A wedding anniversary is a very special occasion that serves as a reminder of your happy wedding day and all of the joyous days since then. Two decades of marriage to a wonderful guy deserves an extraordinary gift. Give him something that celebrates a 20-year partnership, a gift that you and others can share with him.
Have a Feast
Hold a catered party to celebrate his 20th wedding anniversary. Design a meal based around the number 20. Invite 20 guests and their families. Think about serving 20 small items as well as one larger main course. Carve the words 20 and the name of the married couple into a fruit centerpiece. Serve chicken with 20 cloves of garlic and a side dish with 20 spices. Make 20 small cakes with the words "20th Wedding Anniversary" airbrushed on top.
A traditional gift for a 20th wedding anniversary is a gift of china. Plan a trip to the original source of fine plates. Have an adventure in Asia for 20 days with 20 other people. Give him a pair of chopsticks engraved with his name and the date of the anniversary and a silk robe with his name on it. Wrap a copy of a pair of airline tickets and your itinerary around the chopsticks. Decide on hotels, meals and what to see before you go. Concentrate your attention on places that call to mind your original honeymoon as well as joint experiences that have been memorable to you over the years.
Another traditional gift for a 20th wedding anniversary is the metal platinum. Platinum can take many different forms. Celebrate his wedding anniversary with a platinum bracelet or a soignée watch with a platinum face and a decorative band made from material such as leather or alligator. Have the bracelet or watch engraved with your names and the date of your 20th wedding anniversary.
Hall of Fame
Put an interesting spin on the traditional platinum wedding anniversary gift with a gift that revolves around music. Platinum albums signify albums that have sold well. Give him a book with a list of all platinum albums ever recorded. Pick out some of his favorites that are on CDs and include them with the gift. If the musicians are are still touring, purchase concert tickets to see them perform live on your 20th wedding anniversary. Plan a trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, to see musical memorabilia in person.
