Since the modern theme for a 28th anniversary is orchid, one way to select an appropriate gift is to give something connected to that flower. A greeting card should have a likeness of an orchid. Actual orchids or orchid bulbs are also common choices.
Jewelry with lavender stones or orchid designs is suitable for both men and women. Clothing gifts that are fitting include pieces with orchid patterns. Some are made from very pretty fabrics, while others, such as Hawaiian prints, are more whimsical. An orchid-scented candle is a romantic anniversary gift. A poster, photo or painting of an orchid is a present to be hung up and enjoyed throughout the entire year.
