The number 5 represents change, travel, adventure and motion, so expect to have more excitement and be more vibrant in your relationship. Likewise, your gifts should reflect this symbolism and, combined with the traditional ideas of wood and silver, there are endless options for the perfect 5 year anniversary gift.
Sticking to the more traditional idea of silver, you could give a silver cutlery set which comes laid out in a wooden casing. To make it more personal, you could have the knives, forks and spoons monogrammed with the initials of the couple.
If you are looking for a more unusual gift, then look for silver goblets, plates, or even decanters in your local antique shops; this might be a bit pricy, but it is a gift that can be handed down from generation to generation, making it well worth the expense. If you were given a silver set on your 5th year anniversary, then you could always pass this on to your children on their 5 year wedding anniversary.
How about 5 year anniversary gifts relating to vacations?
Splurging out on a two week holiday might seem a bit extreme, but when the responsibilities in the relationship mount up in later years, it might become very difficult to visit that dream place. If you are planning a tour, make sure you leave some time to relax and enjoy one another, as some tours can be very taxing.
If adventure or adventure sports is the thing for both of you, you could plan a different adventure for every month of the year. You could buy tickets online or even make your own with something like "A sky diving adventure, Admit Two"; pop these into a homemade anniversary card, with a copy of the first love letter you wrote to him or her, and you have a 5 year anniversary gift that will last the whole year.
Booking a cruise on a luxury cruise liner is by far the best idea - eats and drinks are taken care of, and you don't even need to drive anywhere, except of course to the harbor where the ship is docked. If you put in a request early, enough, the ship's captain might even dedicate an evening to the special occasion.
For 5 year anniversary gifts, you could also give tickets to the newest romantic movie showing at the local cinema, or even take him or her to a well known theatre show or musical; round the evening off with a candlelit dinner for two on the rooftop of your building.
Any furniture made of wood, like coffee tables, dining room tables, wall units, or welsh dressers, are also perfect as 5 year anniversary gifts, especially if you find ones with a bit of silver edging. Wooden sculptures of two people entwined or a bunch of five wooden roses, even a decorative welsh wooden spoon with the number 5 on it, will be beautiful keepsakes to remember your 5th year anniversary.
Keeping your 5th year anniversary alive and kicking is the order of the day, and with these great 5 year anniversary gift ideas, you are well equipped to give the right gift that tells him or her how much he / she means to you.
