Traditional Vs Modern Wedding Anniversary Gift

Wedding Anniversary

I have been married for 5 years and I just realized that hubby and I we never celebrated in the 5 years of being together so which got me thinking what are the traditional gifts and guess the is now modern gifts hence the traditional vs modern wedding anniversary gift.
When it comes to something’s I really appreciate tradition, therefore I will stick to the traditional way of doing things.

60th                   Diamond                             Diamond

So after comparing the lists there is one traditional gift I will swap with modern gift that is the 15 years anniversary gift I am not an animal person so I would prefer the gold watch instead.The modern gift diamond appears three times well diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

So are you a traditional or modern or a little bit of both? When it comes to celebrating your wedding anniversary.
