5th Wedding Anniversay Gift FAQs

What is the traditional 5th anniversary gift?

Wood is the traditional gift given on a fifth wedding anniversary.

Popular traditional 5 year anniversary gifts include wooden chopping boards, furniture, photo frames and memory boxes. A more modern twist on the 5th wedding anniversary gift would be a personalised keepsake made of wood, such as the wooden keyrings and coasters we make at Create Gift Love.

Why is wood the traditional 5 year anniversary gift?

The fifth wedding anniversary is celebrated with a wooden gift because wood is a material which represents strength, wisdom and stability, due to its association with trees. It is thought that by the 5th wedding anniversary, a relationship will have its roots firmly planted, and a wooden gift symbolises the depth of understanding shared between the couple.

Much like a happy marriage, a strong tree can weather any storm, withstanding whatever is thrown at it. This strength and stability makes wood a meaningful 5th wedding anniversary gift.

What should I do for my fifth anniversary?

Giving your loving wife or husband a wooden wedding anniversary gift is the most traditional way to celebrate 5 years of marriage (and if you’re looking for 5th anniversary gift ideas, you’re in the right place!). Another way to celebrate your 5 year anniversary could be a weekend trip or date inspired by the 5th anniversary themes, such as an overnight stay in a treehouse or a romantic walk in the forest.
