You might have heard of the age-old practice of giving specific wedding anniversary gifts based on your anniversary. When I got married, I loved this tradition and followed each anniversary gift. So, it was pretty interesting to try to find a subscription box that aligns with each anniversary gift. You know, paper for your first year, and gold for your 50th anniversary. While some of these gifts have more modern options, I love to keep this part of my anniversary very traditional.
