We've got 44 gift ideas for you Show: 40 | All
40 years is an incredibly long time, equivalent to 14600 days during which time their hearts will have collectively beaten around 3,363,840,000 times! Whichever way you look at it that’s a tremendously long amount of time spanning 4 decades starting from the mid-70’s when acting legends such as Leonardi Capri and Joaquin Phoenix were little more than embryos, China gave England two Giant Pandas and perhaps most importantly of all, the first McDonalds opened in Woolwich (according to Wikipedia).
The love that the happy couple has shared over the last 40 years has stood the test of time and transcended generations of huge changes across the world, from the invention of the internet to the Liberation of Kuwait, all of these historic moments have been and gone but the strength of this couples relationship has endured all and came out stronger, resulting in 40 years of unbridled affection - today we celebrate their achievement with a personalised Ruby Anniversary gift!
You may be wondering why this Anniversary is called the Ruby anniversary and what is a ruby? Well to answer the first question it is called such because 40 years roughly equates in value terms, to one Ruby. A Ruby itself is a rare gemstone with pinky-red colour who’s name comes from the latin word ruber, meaning red. Rubies are extremely hard gemstones with few other stones able to claim a greater hardness – you could see this as a metaphor for the strength required to endure 40 years of married life… we’ll leave you to ponder that one yourself, now on to gifting!
Yes that’s why you came here and that just happens to be what we do best, gifts and not just any gifts, we happen to provide a wide selection of personal, unique and sentimental presents that are perfect for any couple celebrating their 40th Anniversary. Most of these you can personalise to make the present truly special.
