Traditional 37th Anniversary Gift Ideas: Animal

H2: Modern 37th Anniversary Gift Ideas: Alabaster

Through 37 years of marriage, life has ranged from being as crazy as a zoo…to as quiet as a sanctuary — with a whole lot of wild, wonderful times in between! Celebrate this great adventure with the 37th wedding anniversary traditional gift of “animal.” No, this doesn’t mean popping in with a new puppy or taking an African safari (although both would be fun). We’re thinking more along the lines of faux fur, animal prints, and bear hugs.

Flowers always make a beautiful 37th anniversary gift as well, and that’s especially true for the year’s bloom, the cosmos. Generally thought to be the symbol of order, peace, and modesty, cosmos takes on quite a different meaning when given romantically. As a gift of love, this flower is meant to represent the notion of walking together hand-in-hand and to express the joys that love and life can bring.

Or, if you’re more of a contemporary gift-giver, go for alabaster. This white stone, typically carved into sculptures or ornaments, is thought to symbolize purity and encourage peace and calm. Might come in handy if life is a zoo all over again when the grandchildren come!
