Traditional Gift: China

  • Something Chinese (loose interpretation!): gift certificate for a chinese massage or dinner at a chinese restaurant

Platinum can be pretty expensive, so feel free to use a loose interpretation and get something that is "platinum color."

20th  wedding anniversary gifts

Consider giving the Daylily flower (the 20th anniversary flower) instead of, or
in addition to, the above gift ideas. Daylily flowers come in many colors, shades, and color combinations. They
are rugged, adaptable, vigorous perennials that endure in a garden for many years with little or no care. Daylilies adapt to a wide range of soil
and light conditions. They establish quickly, grow vigorously, and survive winters with little or no injury. Opt for fresh cut flowers, or consult a garden center to find daylilies for your garden.

If you are still unsure of what to get, and have a little more money to spend, stick with a favorite--jewelry! The gemstone associated with the 20th anniversary is the Emerald (alternate: yellow or golden diamond). Buy a necklace, earrings, ring, bracelet, pin, cuff links, or tie tac with on of these gems in it.
