5th Wedding Anniversary - Gift Ideas
We are so excited to celebrate your fifth wedding anniversary with you! It's been five years since you took your vows, and we hope they've been filled with happiness, love, and laughter. What better way to celebrate than with a gift that reminds you of how important and special your relationship is?
Where to go:
Firstly, before settling on a particular gift, it is essential to decide where you will be celebrating your anniversary. For this special occasion, finding an appropriate location to celebrate your matrimonial anniversary can be quite the quest. Do you opt for a place neither of you have been before, such as a quirky restaurant or popular attraction? Or do you stick to what you know will deliver, and visit somewhere you both love? After five years of marriage, it is important to continually try and create new experiences and embrace the future, so we think it’s a great idea to select something fresh and unknown.
Although the idea of a restaurant or bar may seem obvious, if you choose something out of your comfort zone, it can provide an exciting experience to have together. How about trying a style of food you haven’t had before? Or how about a trip out of town (if you’re able to get the time off work) to a destination neither of you have been? The excitement in travelling to an unknown place, and revelling in the culture and history of a new city is a great bonding experience that will be remembered years into the future.
However, don’t feel your options are limited because you don’t have a lot of cash to splash, there are always alternatives to spending lots of money! Depending on the time of year and if the English weather allows it, a romantic picnic at a destination of your choice is both an affordable yet memorable experience. A few bottles of bubbly and a hamper of delicious treats will keep you occupied in the sunshine all day, without having to spend money on travelling away or dining out.
What gift to give:
Now you’ve settled on where you’re going to be celebrating your treasured day, it’s time to turn your attention to purchasing the perfect keepsake for this particular anniversary. The traditional choice of gift for five years in British culture is wood, and there’s plenty of unique and special ideas to choose from. Here at Smart Gifts, we’re dedicated to inspiring and helping you discover the perfect gift to suit this wonderful occasion.
Our particular favourite is the meaningful gesture of planting a tree for your loved one, as a growing symbol of your love for one another. After five years of marriage, like the roots of a plant, you’re stable and grounded in your marriage and planting a tree represents this milestone in your relationship.
Or perhaps you could have something personalised or engraved. Bespoke gifts always show you have put both time and effort into cultivating a keepsake gift for your loved one to cherish, and wood is the ideal material to engrave with a meaningful message. Whether it is a stylish utensil for your kitchen or a quirky piece of furniture for around the abode, it will definitely result in a happy partner.
And don’t forget… whilst the traditional gift of choice is wood, the chosen flower for celebrating five years of marriage is the daisy. By treating your lady to a gorgeous bouquet of daisies, it shows you’ve put considerable effort and consideration into choosing her gift, and ensuring her fifth wedding anniversary is as perfect as it could possibly be.
