Fifth anniversary is a special stage in couple's life. They are already not “just married” however not together as a family for a very long time. The first years of marriage do put a foundation for a strong family. Financially families are usually moved in new home. Most couples have at least first child by that time and it is incredible period to enjoy life after being settled and having a baby to look after.
Interestingly the tradition of celebrating wedding anniversaries dates back to Holy Roman Empire times when husband presented silver wreath to his wife on the 25th anniversary. The tradition not only remained but evolved and nowadays every year anniversary has its meaning and suggested gift. The material of suggested gift varies from country to country however there are common trends. There are even suggested flowers to present.
Probably the first significant anniversary after marriage is the 5th year anniversary and it has its own meaning and symbol. Not without a reason it is wood as a representation of stable, strong and long lasting relationships. This tradition did not change over time: wooden gifts are still considered the most symbolic gifts to give for this anniversary. Wooden presents are exchanged by the couple and also presented by family and friends.
Choosing the best gift for a 5th wedding anniversary
There is a vast range of gifts that you can give for the anniversary. These can be anything, but the more traditional gifts are those made from wood. Many people gift things like wooden spoons or storage chests, but here we propose a new unique type of present.
