Now that you’ve been with your husband or wife for more than two decades, you probably know your spouse even better than you did on your wedding day. That doesn’t necessarily make gift-giving any easier, though, especially if you feel like you’ve used up lots of your best ideas on previous anniversaries. Fortunately, we’re here to help.

Those following the traditional anniversary-gift guidelines know that silver has historically been exchanged at the quarter-century mark. So we searched through our extensive archive for silver things we’ve written about before (along with less expensive silver-tone and silver-plated options) to put together the below list of 33 products that would make great gifts for a 25th anniversary. If you’re not at 25 years yet, we’ve also compiled gift guides for milestones along the way, including first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, and tenth, and 20th anniversaries. And if you’re looking ahead, check out our list of 50th anniversary gifts.
