What wedding anniversary gift will you choose to mark another year ? Reaching a new year of marriage is certainly an occasion worth celebrating with a memorable gift. So why not make a gift of an anniversary trip to yourselves?

Couples who can afford to get away on their wedding anniversary have the opportunity to once again frolic like kids, relax, see and experience new places, and savor time alone together -- something you may not have enjoyed since your honeymoon. And that's a gift you owe to one another.

It's even more fun if you choose a destination that symbolizes your anniversary year. Below you'll find traditional anniversary gifts, modern anniversary gifts, and ideas for travel anniversary trips.
