You’re almost at the second decade of marriage but we think your 18th wedding anniversary is a milestone worth marking in and of itself - especially since the traditional gift to give at 18 years of marriage is oh-so-elegant porcelain. 

We love porcelain because it will complement any interior design aesthetic and always adds a touch of classiness to whatever room it's in. Plus, it can come in the traditional white or in beautifully coloured patterns. 

Whether you’re toasting 18 years since you first said ‘I do’ or celebrating with a couple that you know and love on their 18th wedding anniversary, we’ve got gift ideas galore in a range of prices. From porcelain homeware to sophisticated (and surprisingly easy to wear) jewellery, chic table centrepieces to quirky knick knacks for your mantle, we have recommendations that are guaranteed to delight your spouse. Look no further than this list for 18th wedding anniversary gift inspo.
