Lovely red ruby is the classic gift material for the 40th anniversary. Rich ruby red earrings, bracelet, necklace, ring, or cufflinks would all be appropriate.

Of course, red roses would also make a beautiful gift for this year. For gardeners, ruby colored flowers such as nasturtium or a climbing rose with ruby colored blooms are also pretty ideas. For a twist on the traditional red roses, the preserved ruby red roses (upper left) create a beautiful permanent keepsake.

If you do not want to give jewelry, feel free to give red colored gifts such as clothing, art glass, sculpture, and tapestries. It is also a great year for a commemorative keepsake gift that is personalized for the anniversary couple.

Garnet is the modern 40th anniversary material.

I took my wife out to lunch at her favorite restaurant. While we were out, I had arranged for our daughter to fill the living room with red roses and red streamers. When we got home, my wife had no idea anyone had been there because our children were not expected to come over until dinnertime. When my wife walked into the living room she just stopped suddenly in her tracks in complete surprise before she laughed and cried. A great result, well worth the planning.
-- Neil

I think that a good gift for this year would be a ring with three stones. The middle would be ruby and the other two are diamond.
-- Sandy
