The excitement of your thirty year anniversary should have faded by now, and you’re faced with the challenge of making the 31st anniversary feel like less of an anti-climax for your wife, but also for yourself too. Last year stood out from the crowd because it was 3 decades as man and wife that you were celebrating. Does it make any difference that this year is not such a milestone? It certainly shouldn’t, and we’re here to ensure that it doesn’t happen, for you or the many others who find themselves in the same boat as you.
Wedding anniversaries are an important part of your relationship, as they are a time to reconnect with your partner and rekindle and proclaim the love you have for each other. A great way to do this is with a 31st anniversary gift for her. You may have read that there are themes associated with certain anniversary years, but this year there isn’t one. At least not one in the traditional sense of the word. Over the years, however, it has become common practice to celebrate a thirty first wedding anniversary with the gift of a timepiece.

A timepiece can be found to suit anyone’s style and taste
A timepiece is the modern theme for a 31st wedding anniversary gift for her, and it also works well as a gift for him. The word timepiece is a little old-fashioned. Nowadays we simply prefer to use watches and clocks.
The word clock comes from the Celtic words clagan and clocca which mean bell. An instrument for measuring time that is silent is traditionally known as a timepiece, but we’ve come to prefer calling anything that is used to tell the time a clock. The only distinction we seem to make is when a timepiece is meant to be carried by one person, in which case we call it a watch.
It may be that clocks, watches, or timepieces, whatever you prefer to call them, were chosen because they represent the timelessness of your marriage. It all depends on your partner’s taste as to the style you choose. She may be a traditional kind of lady, or one that prefers to make fashionable statements, or a female that much prefers to keep her accessories classical looking and low key. Whatever her preferences, there will be a timepiece to suit her. We guarantee that. A watch can be a piece of jewelry that is versatile as well as being fashionable. It can be a gift for her to wear every day, or to save for special occasions.
The great thing about a watch is it has a place where you can add some personalization. The back of a watch is the perfect spot for a few well chosen and meaningful words. It’s small enough to say “I love you”, but not too big that you have to worry about filling the space with meaningless waffle.
A watch will make the perfect 31 year anniversary gift for her
Popular trends in watch styles come and go pretty quickly. And there as many different types as the number of people who wear them. They come in outrageous colors, sparkling with precious stones, or over the top bright and gaudy. You can choose from precious metals such as silver and gold, wood, ceramic, leather, even plastic. Here are a few suggestions as to the type of watch your wife might enjoy receiving for her 31 year wedding anniversary gift:
- A pocket watch that is part of a charm bracelet
- A pocket sundial will certainly be a conversation piece
- A watch that’s set with 31 precious stones, one for every year you’ve been married
- An antique watch from her favorite period in history
- A watch that’s been handcrafted and also acts as a work of art
Give her a clock as a 31 year anniversary gift and you can mark the passing of time together
If your wife already has enough watches to compliment all her outfits why not give her the gift of a clock instead? Here are a few ideas to get you ticking:
- A sundial for the garden
- A grandfather clock to grace the hall and act as a family heirloom
- A ship’s chronometer
- A clock she can build herself
- An hour glass
- A water powered clock
You’ll be able to find a wide range of options wherever you choose to do your gift shopping. Clocks can be found in department stores, handicraft stores, as well as online. You can buy them already assembled, or have a go at making one yourself.
A 31 year anniversary gift for her that is a timepiece will be a loving reminder of how much you care, of all the hours you’ve spent together, and those still to come. Wedding anniversaries are very precious, so you should be making the most of the occasion and buying her gifts that express your feelings and have been chosen with her preferences in mind.
Don’t feel pressured to buy her a timepiece, as there are plenty of other options. Buy her a gold dipped rose, or a bouquet of beautiful flowers and she’ll be smiling from ear to ear.
