The Ultimate Guide to Thoughtful 5-Year Wedding Anniversary Gifts

Every day and every milestone counts when you spend your days with your loved one. Also, time flies very quickly while you’re having fun with your forever person. That is why, whenever your anniversary comes around, you are always surprised. Every couple has their own unique way of celebrating this significant milestone. 

While many couples like to lay on a beach shore in some exotic country, others like to keep it simple and have a quiet night and a candlelight dinner. Although couples of different tastes like to display their love and affection for each other in numerous ways, one thing remains constant between them, and that is the traditional wedding anniversary list of presents. How about leveling up things a bit and getting your partner their desired lab diamond anniversary ring?

In many countries, the tradition of giving gifts to each other became a prevalent practice during the nineteenth century. To celebrate important anniversaries they were given names that would suggest traditional gifts suitable for such significant milestones, such as platinum or silver jubilees. Since wedding anniversaries are an important milestone for many couples, they give each other gifts made out of different materials. The wedding anniversary and gift ideas that we are going to discuss in this blog are for the fabulous fifth.

Traditional Gifts

Speaking of tradition, couples were known to gift a piece of wood to their partners to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary because it was believed that the two partners had put down roots to make their relationship as strong as a tree. However, wood has always been seen as a symbol of strength that is made of plain and simple material. However, one can get creative and look at it as an opportunity to carve gifts for their partner. Therefore, if you want to have a wood-themed anniversary, these are some of the gifts that you can look into:

a. Gift a Personalized Wooden Photo Frame

What can be better than getting your partner a beautiful, personalized wooden frame? It's even better if it’s intricately carved! This is a charming gift to give your partner, as it will not only immortalize your favorite moments with each other but also add a touch of warmth to your house’s interior.

b. Gift a Wood Cufflink

You have to agree with the fact that cufflinks add a flair of sophistication to any formal outfit. If your partner is someone who frequently wears suits or shirts because of their profession or because it suits their personal style, you can look to buy a stunning wooden cufflink. You can customize it by adding precious metal chains or lab diamonds, which will further increase the sentimental value of the gift.

These are some of the traditional gifts you can give as your five-year anniversary gift. But our suggestions are still pending! If you do not want to take the traditional route, you can modernize your anniversary gifts and add your own sparkle to them.
