Lace Gifts for Your 13th Wedding Anniversary

Elizabeth Messina Photography

The number 13 has an unlucky reputation, but we'd argue otherwise—especially when it comes to celebrating 13 years of marriage. In fact, we think you're pretty lucky to have found a partner to stand by your side and make the last 13 years some of the best of your life. There's so much that's gone into your relationship, and your love for your husband or wife has likely only increased as each year has gone by. To honor the other half of your love story after 13 wonderful years of marriage, a thoughtful gift is an absolute must. Finding an anniversary present that sums up exactly how you feel can be a challenge, though, which is why we're all for following the traditional wedding anniversary gift by year list.

The go-to gift to celebrate year 13? Lace. It's especially appropriate (it's a popular wedding dress fabric!) and perfectly suited for her. From a subtly sexy robe that'll have her feeling like a bride again, to a pair of pumps that'll add to her designer shoe collection, we've curated plenty of upscale gifts that pay homage to this milestone. We were also sure to include a few more affordable options (check out the lace earrings!) as well, in case you want to supplement a bigger, non-lace-related gift with something traditional.

At a loss for what to gift your husband? While we typically associate lace with women, we did find a few ideas the number one man in your life can appreciate, too. Click through to see all of these personal, elegant picks that perfectly celebrate 13 happy, in-love years.
