Modern anniversary gifts

Every anniversary is special and deserves to be celebrated! For wedding anniversaries, it's especially important to remember why you fell in love in the first place and take that time to reconnect. Going away on a romantic anniversary trip is a great alternative to traditional and modern anniversary gifts. It's easy to buy material things, but nothing says "I love you" like traveling and creating memories together.

The best kind of anniversary gifts are trips with no distractions. How about taking a break from the everyday hustle and bustle by visiting the countryside and checking into a bed and breakfast, experiencing food and wine in beautiful vineyards, and have a relaxing picnic for 2 on the beach? Doesn't that sound like a great alternative to wood, the traditional gift for a 5 year anniversary?

Our Romantic Travel Experts have taken the list of ideas for traditional and modern anniversary gifts and put a travel-related spin on them.
