And, if the typical 29th anniversary gift themes don't lead you to the perfect gift, we added some alternative and traditional gift options for you to consider. No matter what you're looking for, we've got you covered with a variety of options.

What Should You Give as a 29th Anniversary Gift?

The 29th wedding anniversary is a fun one to celebrate. While there isn't a traditional theme associated with this anniversary, the modern theme is furniture, which can be a great gift to splurge on and enjoy together for years to come. The best part about the furniture theme? There are so many different options to choose from, from chairs and desks to tables, cabinets and more.

In addition to the modern theme, the gemstone for the 29th wedding anniversary is garnet and the flower is celosia, a feathery and colorful plant also known as cock's comb. So, if choosing a themed gift is important to you, you can start with one of these categories as a jumping-off point. If the themes for this anniversary don't resonate with you, that's okay too. Consider purchasing a personalized gift or splurging on an item your significant other would like but might not purchase on their own.
