Starting with your sixteenth anniversary, anniversary gifts start to get a little harder to come by because things change drastically with this anniversary. We’re going to explain what the change is, why it changed, and what your options are for a 16th anniversary gift.

Your first fifteen years are over and you are now in the area where you only get one traditional gift idea every five years. So your next traditional gift idea doesn’t come up again until your 20th anniversary. Why? This will sound like a weird answer, but it is what it is. The reason is simply because after the first fifteen years, the chart makers felt that only anniversaries ending in five or zero were really important. It was like reaching a milestone every five years. It didn’t matter that you made it to 24. The key was to get to that magic number of 25.

However, because in modern times people still felt they needed to get gifts for their spouses for every anniversary, today’s list makers came up with modern ideas for every anniversary, even up to the 100th. Seems a bit silly have 100 anniversaries, but the list exists. So starting with the number sixteen, we just have modern gift ideas for all anniversaries that don’t end in five or zero. So don’t worry, you’ll still get some ideas to take with you to your favorite store.

So what is the modern gift idea for your 16th anniversary? Well, they don’t make it easy for you, that’s for sure. His choice for this year is silverware. For those of you, especially you, who don’t know what Hollowware is, we’ll give you a brief definition that even you can understand. Hollowware is the opposite of cutlery. Cutlery is plates that lie flat, like a flat plate. Hollowware is a plate or item that is not flat, such as a bowl. I understand?

Perfect examples of hollow items that you can buy your wife that she is sure to love would be some pretty silver serving plates. These are great for the holidays to serve all of your vegetables. Pitchers, kettles, and trays are also considered hollow objects. Just make sure whatever you get has some silver in or around it. Many hollow bowls are actually made of porcelain, but are plated with gold or silver. Look for the ones lined with silver.

It’s probably best not to buy these things online or from companies where you have to get them delivered. These items are very fragile and can easily break during shipping. Go directly to the store and choose what you want. If you’re having trouble finding something, just go to a vendor and tell them you’re looking for hollow silver items for your 16th anniversary. They will know what to show you.

You would think that as the years go by and you are married longer, receiving anniversary gifts will get easier; Unfortunately, this is not the case. Perhaps this is to remind us that marriage is something very special.
