What should I get as a 17th wedding anniversary gift? The traditional theme for 17th anniversary presents are gifts made from shell; however, if you like to follow the modern themes then it is furniture. At MyGiftGenie we are slightly more traditional which is why we have selected an stunning array of shell gifts to help celebrate the past 17 years together. Our gift ideas range from shell jewellery, shell photo frames, mussel shell eaters or luxury shell ornaments. We want you to find the perfect 17th anniversary gift so that you can enjoy each others company on this special day. Happy 17th anniversary.
