Wedding Anniversary Gifts, Modern Today, there are no hard and fast rules to follow. Couples often no longer need the basics, and wedding anniversary gifts are more ceremonial than practical.

Trying to find something that expresses your sincerity and individuality can be a challenge. A good bottle of wine (or champagne?) or a potted plant might be a nice, simple gesture.
