As clocks are the theme of this anniversary year, it makes sense to choose one for your loved ones to mark out this special occasion in a symbolic way. This is certainly a gift with a long heritage, and captures the essence of the time that your loved ones have spent loving each other.
The earliest clocks were sundials, produced by the ancient Egyptians in 1500 BC to measure the day into parts. In ancient Greece, the water clock, invented by Plato, was very popular and even had a form that could be used as an alarm clock. In ancient Chinese and Japanese cultures, candle clocks were created which could be used both day and night to work out the hour. The first astronomical clock was invented in the 11th century by a Chinese astronomer called Su Song and some of the later versions of these clocks featured moving automata, while the earliest mechanical clocks were invented by Christian monks during the middle ages. By the 15th century, clocks were being found inside private homes as well as in church towers, and personal watches first appeared in the 1500s. At first, wristwatches were purely the preserve of women, with men using pocket watches until the last century, however they did become popular with men in the army as they were more convenient when on manoeuvres. As electric clocks, atomic clocks and quartz clocks were developed, an ever expanding choice became available. Today, there are countless varieties of clock to choose for your loved ones on the occasion of their 31st wedding anniversary.

Options include such things as making a romantic dinner for two, cleaning the kitchen on her behalf or doing all the washing for a week. She will treasure such a personal and thoughtful gift.
