Finding the perfect 19th wedding anniversary gift is a tall order for a number of reasons but not impossible. Firstly, because you’re celebrating a moment that represents almost two decades together so you really need to nail it. But also because, as you may have already discovered on your search, the traditional gift for the 19th wedding anniversary doesn’t seem to exist – at least not in the UK.
In the US the convention for a modern gift is bronze, and if you want to head down that avenue, we’d recommend checking out our 8th wedding anniversary gift guide, where you’ll find plenty of gorgeous precious metal-based inspiration. But if that’s not your thing, you can also look to the 19th anniversary gemstone (aquamarine) or 19-year flower (chrysanthemum), or one of our other equally thoughtful suggestions below.
However you’re celebrating your 19th wedding anniversary, a meaningful gift will make the perfect finishing touch, and we hope we’ve found something your other half will love in the collection below. Congratulations on making it this far – and here’s to the next 19!

8. Iguazu Silk Scarf Aquamarine – £85, Texas And The Artichoke
It’s obviously gorgeous at first glance, but the real beauty of this elegant parrot scarf lies in its versatility – it can be worn around the head, the wrist, or the neck, tied from a favourite bag or even used to shield their shoulders from the sun.

Chrysanthemum Wedding Anniversary Gifts
Chrysanthemums are the wedding anniversary flower for your 19th year. Again, you can go literal with a plant or bouquet, or look for chrysanthemums prints or artwork for a more abstract approach.
11. Lilac Bouquetta – £45, Marks & Spencer
Especially good if you’re gifting from afar, M&S’s cheery bouquet features a romantic lilac chrysanthemum mixed with an assortment of rose, clematis, and eucalyptus. For just £3 more, you can also add a bag of Percy Pigs to your delivery, which in our books is a gesture that’s worth every penny.
12. Chrysanthemum Art Print – from £20, I Am Fy
A great piece of art never goes out of style – like this print of iconic imagery from Japanese artist Hokusai proves. If you don’t want to pick up a straightforward bunch of blooms, this is a thoughtful way of using the designated flower in a way that’ll last much longer.
13. Chrysanthemum Wall Art Print– £15, Etsy

Missoma also offers complimentary monogramming for that added personal touch.
27. Watch Jewellery Box – £20, Next

29. One Line A Day Book – £14.99, Anthropologie
It’s a five-year diary, but not as you know it – each page invites the user to jot down the highlight of their day, every single day, so they can look back on it with each passing year. Whether you give it to your other half to complete solo or buy it as a project to work on as a couple, it’s a really sweet, sentimental way to focus on all of the good times you’ll share going forward.
