39th year Wedding Anniversary

Lace garment to represent the 39th anniversary modern theme

When it comes to thinking of items to buy for your 39th wedding anniversary gift, you have a wide range of choices, and that’s because there aren’t any traditional symbols or items associated with it.

Traditional 39th Annviersary Gifts

The earlier years of your marriage have certain traditional themes and gemstones or symbols connected to them but the 39th year wedding anniversary does not have those.

This means you are free to think of unique and wonderful things to buy, and while you might think that it could be difficult we have a variety of wedding anniversary gifts to give you plenty of inspiration.

Normally, wedding anniversary gifts such as the first wedding anniversary are linked with paper, so you would buy something with that material in the gift. However, as time goes by the traditional items do not carry through, but fear not, you know exactly what your partner likes and dislikes so the onus is on you to pull through with a fantastic gift or selection of presents that your wife or husband would love.

It might be that you need something new for your home together or if you have a favorite place to visit then you could book a weekend away.

As you’re coming up to the 40th year wedding anniversary you could be planning something incredible for that but for the 39th anniversary gift you could buy a handful of smaller presents for your spouse.

Other wedding anniversaries have flowers associated with each year but the 39th doesn’t. However, if your wife loves a certain type of flower then you could buy a lovely bouquet for her and she’ll adore them, especially if you have them delivered to your home. From lilies to roses, daffodils to azaleas there are many to choose from and we have more ideas for wedding anniversary gifts located on our website to help give you the inspiration you need.

Modern 39th Anniversary Gift Theme

There is a modern version of the wedding anniversary gift that is associated with the 39th year and that is lace.

Lace is a stunning fabric that is usually handmade and while it was very popular in the 15th and 16th centuries, it’s certainly come back into fashion and it carries a very regal and upmarket look.

Buy your wife a stunning lace outfit or a blouse that has lace in it which will be perfect as a 39th year wedding anniversary gift.

As you can see, there aren’t any traditional items connected to the 39th year of marriage but you could opt for the modern equivalent and buy something with lace in it as well as a nice bunch of flowers for your wife. Alternatively, you could simply buy your spouse’s favorite item and they will know just how much they mean to you!
