Worst Ideas

Worst 17th Anniversary Gift Ideas for Couples

Traditional wedding anniversary gift themes don’t cover every single year, which means only the modern suggestions cover the 17th anniversary. Even though the focus is traditionally furniture, there’s nothing wrong with getting your loved one other gifts. It’s also good to know that the designated gemstone is carnelian.

As there are no rigid traditions, you can get whatever you like. Nevertheless, it would be best if you didn’t buy gifts that seem insincere or lazy. You want to get something your beloved spouse will enjoy.

With this advice in mind, try not to get your other half gift cards unless they specifically say they don’t mind. A well-thought-out gift is always better at the end of the day.
