Buying Considerations for 22nd Anniversary Gifts

Traditional Materials

A couple’s 22 year wedding anniversary is customarily marked with copper presents, so look for gift ideas that are centered around this general theme. However, it is important for buyers to do their research on any cookware and drinkware that they intend to purchase as gifts.

According to the experts at Healthline, “copper can leach into to your food in amounts that aren’t safe to consume. [Thus,] unlined copper isn’t safe for everyday cooking.” This is corroborated by researchers at the Centers For Disease Control who note that “Copper is essential for good health. However, exposure to higher doses can be harmful.”

Therefore, you need to look for kitchen tools and accessories that incorporate a food-safe protective coating. However, if there is any concern, purchase copper-colored stainless steel tools. This will still express your appreciation for the occasion, while still keeping them safe.

General Interests

When brainstorming gift ideas, it is important to find items that will not only be useful to the couple but something that they can enjoy on their 22 year wedding anniversary and beyond. Thus, think about their hobbies and what presents tie into those pastimes.

Moreover, consider their general sense of style. Buying decor is a very personal project, so look around their home to find something that matches their current belongings. You always want to find items that will fit well in their living space or office.
