Traditional 12th Anniversary Theme for Gifts: United States: Home Décor; United Kingdom: Linen or Silk

Home decorHome décor as a 12th wedding anniversary gift theme brings to mind the phrase “home is where the heart is”. Representing the way two committed individuals come together in a settled life, home décor gifts also remind the couple to continue to work on and improve their marriage.

Linen, with its significance of truth and purity, stems back to the Bible, when angels were said to wear linen garments.

After 12 years together, the couple have faced challenges and obstacles, and their union is reinforced. The strength, yet beautiful elegance of silk perfectly reflects this.
