For someone’s anniversary let’s just say five year anniversary you could get the happy couple a five year old engraved bottle of wine, wine glasses with five engraved on them, an engraved cheese tray, five year old cheese and a five dollar bill.

How about ten year anniversary, well you could copy the five above but substitute a ten instead of a five and add to it.  You could also add an engraved wine box, an engraved or printed candle, ten pieces of fruit, ten pieces of candy, and ten flowers.  This is completely doable for smaller anniversaries but 50 might be a little tricky trying to find 50 items.
