It’s become quite a tradition for wedding anniversaries to be celebrated by giving specific gifts to commemorate the occasion. When you’re looking for a 43rd wedding anniversary gift for her the theme is travel.
Wedding anniversaries have been celebrated for centuries. As far back as the Middle Ages, husbands would give their wives a garland made from silver, upon reaching a twenty fifth anniversary. And one made of gold if they were fortunate and healthy enough to reach fifty years of marriage. The custom was taken several steps further when diamonds were introduced for a 60th anniversary, and rubies for a 40 year anniversary. A number of other themes were added for various other years, but it was usually the most significant milestones that were marked with certain kinds of gifts.
Bringing the custom up to date, there are now specific themes for the vast majority of wedding anniversaries. And we’ll be featuring them here on this site. Take a look at some of the other pages, and we’re sure you’ll find something that suits.

A quick weekend getaway or an extended vacation
There are no hard and fast rules on what type of travel. You could choose a short getaway for the weekend, or a long vacation somewhere exotic. Most people enjoy going on holiday, and we bet your wife is no different. And what better way to celebrate your 43rd wedding anniversary by going somewhere new and exciting. Or she may prefer to visit her favorite location and spend the time reminiscing all the moments you’ve shared.
One of the reasons you should consider a vacation for a 43 year wedding anniversary gift for her, is that it will give you both the opportunity to relax and spend some quality time together, as well as broaden your minds and horizons.
Travel won’t suit everyone’s budget for a 43rd wedding anniversary gift for her
Unless your wife is prepared to stay in a tent on the beach, without any extras or luxury facilities, a vacation may not be the sort of gift you’re looking for. But don’t worry, because there are a host of other alternatives. And you might want to save a few of your cents and dollars and splash out on a stupendous vacation for your fiftieth wedding anniversary. If this is the case you could start preparing her with some travel themed gifts. She might be needing a new leather passport holder, a new overnight holdall, or a personalized set of luggage. Maybe an e-book reader is the order of the day. Or how about a top of the range camera, so she can capture the sights while you’re away.
If you want to incorporate the theme of travel for a 43 year anniversary gift for her, you might need to think a little more creatively. Is there a cardboard box at the back of her closet? Filled with photographic memories of family vacations long forgotten? A great 43rd wedding anniversary gift idea for her would be to make them into a collage. Find a pretty picture frame and you’ll be making a meaningful gift that will be talked about for many years to come.
Alternatively you might want to have one of the photographs made into a painting. It’s a very simple process to get this done. All you need to do is visit a printing shop, or send a digital image to an online printing shop. It’s easy for them to turn a snapshot into an oil or watercolor painting.
Another traditional gift for the ladies are flowers, whether a huge bouquet, a single red rose, or something she can plant and nurture for years to come.
