Each year of a wedding anniversary has a traditional material associated with it. But as these interesting and unusual anniversary presents demonstrate, you don't have to be conventional when you stick with tradition...

The first year , start as you mean to go on with an unusual and exciting gift. We have√Ç¬†a range of amazing paper gifts from the Little Paper Company
. The story of this Frome-based husband-and-wife company itself is as beautiful and interesting as their intricate paper products. √Ç¬†We recommend√Ç¬†the Our House
paper art house (pictured below) as the perfect paper wedding anniversary present.

. It's simple yet√Ç¬†delightful.

. It's personalised, thoughful and√Ç¬†perfect for a copper wedding anniversary present.
8 Year Wedding Anniversary: Pottery
We prefer the term Ceramics
here at SEED, and we have plenty of these. A whole category in fact! √Ç¬†One of our highlights is the precious works of√Ç¬†Ali Tomlin
√Ç¬†as typified by this beautiful Blue Lines Single Stemmed Vase
11 Year Wedding Anniversary: Steel
We have a collection of jewellery by one of our favourite artists, Beccy Gillatt
. Beccy√Ç¬†uses stainless steel as a base and combines it with contrasting precious metals such as silver and gold to produce startling pieces like this Crossing Lines Stainless Steel Pendant
. What√Ç¬†a perfect surprise for someone's silver wedding anniversary.
12 Year Wedding Anniversary: Silk
in abundance here at SEED, including the beautiful bold patterns by Margo Selby
14 Year Wedding Anniversary: Ivory √¢‚Ç¨‚Äú Horn
This year traditionally would have been ivory, but obviously that is an absolute no-no. We have chosen to stay with the animal theme but instead chosen√Ç¬†Abbeyhorn
. Abbeyhorn products are a by-product of the meat industry and show off the natural beauty of horn, so each piece is utterly√Ç¬†unique. We like the Horn Bead Stud Earrings
as a stylish and unusual anniversary gift.
