Tips for choosing a fifth wedding anniversary gift

For a gift that is truly personal and full of sentimental value, you don’t necessarily need to buy something. Maybe you can plant a tree together, go for a walk in the woods, or restore an old wooden family heirloom. Gifts for the home are personal, useful and meaningful, and will increase in sentimental value over time. It shows that you are committed to each other and respect the intimacy and togetherness of a shared life. A piece of wooden furniture is a lovely idea for a fifth wedding anniversary gift, and will something you keep forever.

Even if tradition is not necessarily important to you both, giving a nod in tradition’s direction seems thoughtful and endearing, especially when you can tie in something that has a personal meaning for the both of you.

If you have friends who are celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary, flowers are always a good choice or, if you want to get something a bit different, try a hamper. It is something they can share with their friends, or enjoy with just the two of them.

For these kinds of occasions, you can really never go wrong with flowers. Daisies are the usual choice for a fifth wedding anniversary, but there is no need to feel restricted. You can order freshly cut, seasonal flowers and have them delivered directly to your door from online retailers. What a romantic way to surprise your partner: a beautiful, fragrant bunch of flowers first thing in the morning on your anniversary.


The etiquette of gift giving on the fifth wedding anniversary

Tradition dictates that on their fifth wedding anniversary, couples should give each other gifts made from wood. The slow growth and sturdiness of a tree as it puts down roots signify the deep bonds that have already begun to grow. Thus, giving a wooden gift acknowledges the importance of and encourages stability in your relationship and for your future together.

Now, it’s common to give silverware to celebrate the occasion. The fifth wedding anniversary gemstone is sapphire, the colours are blue, pink or turquoise, and the flower is the daisy.


Buying a gift for a couple

If your friends, work colleagues, or family members are celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary, it can be difficult to know what is appropriate for a gift. In many cases, even if they are having a little party or a dinner, they might not even be expecting gifts. If you would like to get them something, simple things like a plant for their home or kitchenware are thoughtful and appropriate. Anniversary gifts from a third party should stay friendly; leave the romantic things for them to give to each other.


Buying a gift for your partner

The fifth wedding anniversary is a big deal, so the gift you buy for your partner should celebrate that accordingly.

Traditional gifts can be sweet, chivalrous and thoughtful gestures. Remember: wood, daisies, pink and blue, sapphire and silverware.

Think about something that allows you to celebrate your love together. You might even go away for five days with just the two of you. Take the time to enjoy each other.
