For spouses

Have a fancy dinner out with oysters as an appetizer.

Anything adorned with mother-of-pearl or pearl-like accents would be a great way to commemorate the anniversary. This could include jewelry, knives or even cabinet hardware.


Take a laid-back road trip to Tennessee. Along with the usual attractions (like Nashville and the Great Smoky Mountains), visit the Tennessee River Freshwater Pearl Farm.

For another couple

Give them a mother-of-pearl vase or picture frame.


Don’t forget the card! No anniversary is complete without telling your mate how you feel.
