If you're celebrating 22 years of marriage, that's 11,563,200 minutes since you said, "I do." To celebrate all you've been through together (and all that's still to come), a great wedding anniversary gift is in order.

A 22nd-year anniversary gift that shows your love after all these years of marriage doesn't need to be fancy (though it certainly can be). The most important thing is that it's chosen with the recipient and their personality in mind. That may mean the perfect gift is something heartfelt and sentimental that will bring a tear to their eye, or it may mean something quirky and fun that will make them smile.

What Should You Give as a 22nd Anniversary Gift?

Both the traditional gift and modern gift themes for 22 years of marriage are copper. This gorgeous metal can be found everywhere from jewelry to home decor and more, lending itself to plenty of great gift inspiration.

Unlike some years, there doesn't seem to be a gemstone or flower commonly associated with the 22nd year of marriage, but that's okay. You don't need any theme at all to choose a great 22nd-year anniversary gift for your spouse or to congratulate loved ones in your life.
