About 18th Wedding Anniversaries
What is the 18th Wedding Anniversary name & Symbol?
18…the age at which kids usually go off to study and the parents are back together on their own again. This could tally with your 18th wedding anniversary.
Maybe your kids are about to leave home. This could be a major moment in your relationship and family life, possibly a time when you will have more time for yourselves and each other.
In Chinese tradition, 18 is a very lucky number as it can mean that “one is going to prosper”. 18 is the year that “love comes of age”.
How to celebrate 18th wedding anniversary
So what are you going to do with your loved one for your 18th wedding anniversary?
Garnet and porcelain are both associated with this anniversary. Garnet is a stone of romantic love and passion which is used in metaphysics to enhance sensuality, sexuality, and intimacy in a balanced way. It is also considered a stone of increasing truth, commitment, hope, and faith.
18th Wedding anniversary Gifts for Him, Her and the Couple
Some garnet jewellery in a porcelain box as a gift could be just perfect. Also, as garnet is a deep red colour you could treat your loved one to a porcelain vase full of beautiful red roses.
A fine dining set, heirloom worthy, would make a truly appropriate gift too.
If you want to be creative on your anniversary and maintaining the porcelain theme you could go together to a ceramic making or ceramic decorating class. You could create your own special keepsake ornament (or vase, mugs, platter) that you can make together.
