When it comes to anniversary gifts, you might be familiar with the “anniversary materials.” Whether it’s paper for your first anniversary or aluminum for your tenth, every year signifies a new landmark and a new symbol of your love. As for 13 year anniversary gifts? The classic material is lace and a modern take includes faux fur and textile gifts, but you also have free range to get whatever you see fit. Read more about 13 year anniversary gifts, what they symbolize and some serious gift-spiration, below.

What Is the 13 Year Anniversary Gift?

Traditional: Lace

Traditionally speaking, the material that represents the 13 year anniversary gift is lace. It represents intricate beauty, and requires patience and care to foster, just like a relationship after 13 years together. While you can always go for lacy lingerie, we’ll provide plenty of 13 year anniversary gift options that work outside the bedroom too.

Modern: Faux Fur and Textiles

A more modern take on 13 year anniversary gift ideas is textiles (which is broad, and includes any sort of clothing or home goods made of cloth) and fur (but always of the faux variety).
