10 Amazing Anniversary Gifts For Gay And Lesbian Couples for Years 30 to 39
At this point, I’d offer up a handy table with all of the traditional and modern gift themes for each year, along with the special gemstone and flower that goes along with them.
Unfortunately, whoever came up with the list many moons ago apparently ran out of energy. Only the 30th and 35th years have special themes attached to them.
While we’ve broken the list below down into those two big years, many of the ideas are perfect for the years in-between as well. Take a look!

The specifics for the 30th anniversary are diamonds, pearls and the color green. However, if pricey gemstones aren’t in your budget and your favorite couple really doesn’t like green, these creative ideas work wonderfully, too!
