Weddings and wedding anniversaries are steeped in tradition but in the modern age it can be difficult to maintain a sense of traditionalism when it comes to gift-giving. Paper, lace and leather might not seem like the most inspired choices, but the traditional wedding anniversary gifts have vast potential for creative thinking and fun gift-giving.
Celebrating your wedding anniversary as a couple is about celebrating your union as a loving, inseparable partnership and choosing something that better represents your love for one another shows forethought, consideration and also sends the message that you’re still deeply attracted to your husband or wife.
To make your wedding anniversary traditional, romantic and sexy, check out these suggestions for alternative sexy gifts to celebrate your marriage and rekindle some of that wedding night passion.

Take a moment to read some of the 188,000 sex toy reviews found on Lovehoney and you'll notice that often our customers try out a new toy just a couple of times before posting a review. Meanwhile others use their new toys over a few weeks or months before sharing their thoughts. In contrast, our Review of the Month winner for June really took her time to craft a winning review: summersun has owned (and loved!) the Tantus Realdoe Wireless Strap On Double Dildo Vibrator 7 inch for THREE YEARS!
In the review, summersun gives a great run down of why the toy works so well for her. She explains the importance of discreet packaging, and gives advice on different ways to use the Realdoe vibrating strapless strap-on dildo:
"I can't even put into words how hot it is - I have had experiences ranging from so sweet, intense and tender that both of us cried during, to experiences so hot that we both had to high-five after we were finished! This toy makes you feel that you're having the most natural sex possible, and it makes me so happy to be a lesbian."

This month's winner is new member WindyWendy who reviewed the Tracey Cox Supersex Multispeed Vibrating Butt Plug.
We were so pleased to hear that Wendy was able to achieve her first orgasm in many years despite her disability by using the ergonomic vibrating toy.
"Being disabled I have problems with movement and weak grip in my hands, so I decided to experiment with this toy and found the shape so comfortable and easy to hold. And rather than using it for a butt plug, I can bring myself to orgasm for the first time in years as it was so easy to hold."
"Finding sex toys if you or your partner are disabled is extremely hard, but thanks to this multi speed butt plug I can be satisfied like everyone else."
Check out Wendy's full review, and read on to find out who was selected as a runner up this month:
