Traditional and Modern Anniversary Gifts

I have a few anniversaries coming up with some of the weddings I have planned so I thought it would be nice to post what the traditional wedding anniversary gifts have been throughout time.

It is interesting to see what has changed over the years from the traditional to modern side. 

Note how diamonds have been added a few more times on the modern list.
