30 Best 30th Anniversary Gifts

Thirty years of marriage have passed by in what feels like a flash, but somehow you are just as excited and in love as you were all those years ago. At this point, you may have adult children and for the first time in years are getting to rediscover each other as individuals.

The traditional 30th wedding anniversary gift is pearl, but instead of settling for a classic pearl necklace or ring, there are plenty of other anniversary gifts to choose from. The options are endless with everything from pearl jewelry to art, to cufflinks or tie clips. Oysters are also known for an association with pearls, right? So, you can also settle for pearl-colored art!

But the most important thing is to have fun and remember that you are celebrating this major moment in your lives. And in order to do that, you can choose from these wonderful 30th anniversary gifts for your spouse.
