Often, the 37th wedding anniversary has a tendency to pass by with little fuss or celebration – just a year like any other. But as a couple, it is important to take the opportunity to celebrate every milestone, however apparently insignificant, remembering to show your spouse how much they are loved every day of the year, even after so many years of union.
Show your husband or wife how much they are appreciated by surprising them with meaningful and heartfelt 37 year anniversary gifts. It may seem difficult to think of something original or unique, however if you look at the list of materials associated with each anniversary year, you may find that you want to incorporate some of these themes into your choice of gift to make it especially relevant.
Themes and Symbols for the 37th Anniversary Year
When the traditional list of anniversary symbols was drawn up in 1937, the 37th year of marriage was omitted from the list. This was because after the 20th wedding anniversary, only every fifth year was considered to be a milestone. Couples would traditionally only celebrate the 37th year of marriage in private. However today, families and friends are keen to celebrate every year with their loved ones, and so the more modern lists associated a theme with this, and every other anniversary year up to 100. Alabaster is the contemporary material linked with 37 years of marriage, and although it may seem like an unusual suggestion, there are a surprising amount of lovely 37 year anniversary gift ideas that incorporate this theme.

Facts About Alabaster
There are in fact two minerals known as alabaster – gypsum and calcite, which is also sometimes called onyx marble. Used throughout history to produce indoor sculptures and artworks, it has a beautiful creamy appearance, with cream and brown swirling bands on its limestone surface. Alabaster is also quite translucent, and this, together with its pale appearance, led the Victorians to refer to the favored pale skin as “alabaster”. Although alabaster was traditionally used for art projects, very thin sheets have also been used to make church windows.
In the USA, the onyx marble variety of alabaster is quarried in several areas, including California, Utah, Colorado and Virginia, and black alabaster can be found in Oklahoma. This very rare mineral can be quarried from a natural gypsum cave and is found in a range of colors including pink, white and black.
