It has a subtle and unique scent that is perfect for everyday wear without overwhelming your coworkers or family members’ noses.
Platinum Dipped Long Stem Genuine Venus Rose In Gift Box
Most flowers only last a week or two tops. However, this platinum-dipped rose will be an eternal symbol of your love and bond. As we mentioned before, platinum is the modern 20th wedding anniversary gift, and this gorgeous rose would look dashing in a modern contemporary vase. Plus, if you’re looking for future milestone anniversary gifts, you’ll be able to add to your partner’s bouquets with other dipped roses in the coordinating metals, such as silver and gold.

We’re picturing some kind of glaze and gold accents to lean into the china 20th-anniversary theme, but of course, we’ll leave the creativity up to the happy couple!

This frame is available in a few sizes and is crafted from faux leather.
20th Anniversary Plate Decorations Gift
If you enjoyed the sentiment of the previous item but are scoffing at us because leather is the third-anniversary gift, not the 20th-anniversary symbol, you might be happy to see this more traditional choice. This porcelain plate has all the same heartfelt notions as the picture frame, but with the material and gold filigree designs the recipient might expect from a traditional 20th-anniversary gift.

Ross-Simons 11.00 Carat Emerald and .40 ct. t.w. White Topaz Ring

This ring is meant for those that prefer an eye-catching statement piece to add a loaded dose of sparkle to their ensembles. It features an 11-carat pear-shaped emerald surrounded by a halo of white topaz. Essentially, it’s a planet for her finger.
Over two decades of marriage, you’re bound to forget some of the highlights. This game is designed to help the players access long-forgotten memories from the depths of their subconscious.
