What do you give on a 5th wedding anniversary?

Five years, half a decade, the same amount of time you spent in secondary school – however you want to look at it, a fifth wedding anniversary is definitely something to celebrate. So, if you’re soon to be celebrating your 5th year of marriage or know someone who is, you might be wondering what gift to give on a five year anniversary?

Like the more well-known Golden Wedding to celebrate 50 years or the 40 year Ruby Wedding, the fifth wedding anniversary also has its own suggested gifts and milestone materials. The five year flower is a daisy, the fifth anniversary gemstone is rose quartz, and the modern gift is silverware, but the most traditional gift for a 5th anniversary is wood. Yes, our first and favourite material to use at Create Gift Love, wood is the perfect gift for a wedding anniversary and we are here with personalised wooden keepsakes to help solve your fifth wedding anniversary gift dilemmas! Read on for personalised fifth wedding anniversary gift ideas for him or her. 

Why is wood the fifth anniversary gift?

Trees are said to be a symbol of strength and wisdom, and it’s thought that these characteristics will also be present in your relationship after the first five years of marriage. Wood is strong, durable and weathers and ages beautifully. 

Wood’s natural beauty makes it wonderful for celebrating five happy years, and its source symbolises a now grounded and deep-rooted relationship. As well as roots, wood represents natural growth, from a young sapling to a tall, grand tree – a marked development from the traditional gift of paper for a first anniversary. The grain running through each piece of wood makes it completely unique and shows its history: the twists and turns a reminder of this growth, and what the tree (or couple) has been through to get where they are five years later. 

What are some wooden gift ideas for a five year anniversary?

There are so many ways you can interpret a wooden gift: a piece of furniture, the planting of a tree or simply a date day wandering through a forest together. At Create Gift Love we specialise in heartfelt personal keepsakes that your loved ones will treasure for years to come – if you ask us, nothing beats a unique, personalised gift.
