If you're stuck for ideas of what to get your spouse for your wedding anniversary, look to tradition for some inspiration. Since the middle ages, couples have given each other themed gifts to signify the different stages of marriage. Traditionally, the 25th year of marriage is celebrated with a silver gift and the 50th year calls for something gold, but what about the years in-between? Here are the traditional themes for each year of wedded bliss and some gift ideas to match
