There does not appear to be a similar universally accepted gift guide or suggested list for dating anniversaries.
Some gift stores and websites have created their own lists of suggestions but nothing as widely recognized as the wedding anniversary symbol list first created by Emily Post in 1922.
For our first anniversary (which is traditionally the paper anniversary), I took sand from Lake Michigan (where my husband was born) and put it in an old bottle with a stopper top.
He loved it and it still sits on his dresser by the bed! My husband took the batteries out of a wall clock, set it to the time we got married, and wrote a poem around the outside of it. I bought a jar and filled it with his favorite candy and wrapped each candy with a piece of paper that had a reason why I love him. On our first year anniversary, my husband gave me a photo album he had worked on the entire year to commemorate our first year together. One year we decided to get creative and set a limit and whatever we did it had to fit in a noodle box. Husband made me a dozen roses out of my favorite candy (stuffed Twizzlers). Wrote out the words of all the little ways he shows me love everyday and framed it… Treat your spouse to a 30-minute massage, followed by an enzyme facial (don’t attempt to do extractions…enzyme facial mask will do the trick and can be purchased anywhere for less than ), manicure and pedicure.
A trendy watch or thoughtful jewelry (keep it simple, nothing too expensive or sentimental), dinner at upscale restaurant, or a fancy home cooked meal.
Have you ever been just a couple days away from your wedding anniversary and trying to figure out what meaningful gift you can get…inexpensively? But have no fear, you (and I) never have to go through that again. Feel free to borrow these ideas and make them your own. Then I took a piece of paper and “aged” it with coffee and tea grounds.
Yesterday, we posed a simple question to Happy Wives Club members on our Facebook Community page: What is the most creative anniversary gift you (and/or your husband) has ever given for less than ? When it dried, I printed a poem I wrote on it, burned the edges to make it look OLD, rolled it up, tied it with a red ribbon, and put it in the bottle.

The lists of symbols and gifts for wedding anniversaries is often written and talked about. Dating anniversaries tend to be celebrated in months rather than years.
