Choosing an interesting and inexpensive 25th Wedding Anniversary Gift
A silver wedding anniversary is, of course a very special occassion for the happy couple concerned. Unfortunately, this is not always the case for the relatives and friends that have to search far and wide to find a silver gift to suit the occassion - without breaking the bank. There are a few do's and don'ts that should be observed. Acceptable solid hallmarked silver gifts can be purchased from as little as £20.00 up to about £100.00. This will get you a very acceptable solid silver gift to present. It is an absolute "don't" to purchase anything other than solid hallmarked silver, unfortunately, silver plate is a definate "no". The most acceptable (and age old favourites) are silver photo frames, silver drinks and bottle coasters, silver/crystal decanters, candle holders, claret jugs, clocks, and vases. To make your chosen gift that bit more special, it is always advisable to include an engraved message on the silver item.
Engraving messages should be kept concise, with engraving less is definetly more. The most frequently used anniversary engraving message is the first names of the happy couple, and the date of the anniversary. Engraving is not widely offered with solid silver, but it is well worth seeking out the companies that do offer this service. Engraving particularly with an inexpensive silver gift, can transform the perceived value dramatically. Hallmarked silver purchased online can yield savings of up to 70% compared to High Street prices. Silver really is the perfect gift when it comes all 25th anniversary celebrations.
