Bronze Gifts for Your 19th Wedding Anniversary
It may be hard to believe that you're one year away from two decades of marriage, but here you are. While your anniversary is all about reflecting on the past 19 years with the person who's been there through thick and thin—marrying your husband or wife is still, to this day, the best decision you've ever made—it's also about making your partner feel special. We're all for planning a weekend getaway or romantic dinner, but gifting your partner a little something extra is always appreciated. If you've begun the 19th-anniversary present search, you might have discovered that the traditional wedding anniversary gift of choice for the year involves bronze.
Bronze may not be an intuitive gift, but we're here to help you choose something that fits the bill. We've rounded up sleek and contemporary bronze-inspired presents that are sure to delight your love on this milestone. From modern homewares (check out the next-level salt and pepper shaker set and the minimalist candle holders) to furniture (you know she's been eyeing that brass-finished side table forever!), there's something here that anyone is sure to love—including your very particular partner.
The best part? Brass metallic accents are all the rage right now, which means that these gifts are simultaneously timeless and on-trend. If you know that your husband or wife isn't a fan of this metal, no worries. We were sure to include a few interpretative options—think brushed gold and copper—to keep all of your bases covered. Ready to see all of these inspired presents for yourself? Click through to discover these pretty bronze gifts, perfect for him or her.
