To celebrate 5 years with your partner, it’s tradition to give a gift made from wood. This represents the strength of your relationship and the desire to celebrate many more years together. However, more modern gifts, like sapphire jewelry, can also be given. It all depends on how you can best celebrate your love — and your partner’s preferences. 

Choosing the best 5 year anniversary gifts

Congratulations, you’ve reached half a decade of marriage, and it shows your marriage is a strong one — as strong as wood! A 5-year anniversary is a special one, and whether you’re buying a gift for your spouse or for another lovely couple, there are some important things to consider if you want to celebrate it in the right way.

Will your spouse prefer a traditional gift? Some people do! If so, wood is the traditional 5-year-anniversary gift, and items made from wood should be at the top of your list. Perhaps something more modern or sentimental is up their alley? If that’s the case, you should focus on sapphire gifts or even personalized items that will be more meaningful to them. Some couples value practicality above all else, so useful accessories or gadgets that they can use around the house would be better options for them.

How we identified the best 5 year anniversary gifts

Five loving years have passed and that’s certainly something to celebrate. Whether it’s your 5-year anniversary or you’re celebrating another happy couple, we considered that tastes vary and can run toward traditional, modern, meaningful and personalized, or practical gifts. 

For those leaning toward a traditional gift for their spouse, we selected decorative or useful items, as well as pieces of jewelry made from wood. These perfectly represent the anniversary theme. We know, however, that some people love the idea of a romantic or sentimental gift more than a traditional one, which is why we opted for various thoughtful and personalizable items because nothing spells romance like a customized gift.  

We didn’t forget about the procrastinators who wait until the last minute. We included last-minute gifts that are so great, they’ll create the lasting impression you were hoping to make.   

Traditional versus modern 5 year anniversary gift symbolism

Wood is the traditional 5-year-anniversary gift, and it symbolizes long-lasting strength, wisdom, and forgiveness. It’s believed that when a couple reaches half a decade of marriage, they’ve established strong roots, which is the foundation for a marriage that will last. 

Sapphires represent the modern spin on 5-year-anniversary presents. They’re said to represent faithfulness and sincerity, which are the qualities of a truly beautiful relationship. Additionally, daisies and silverware are associated with the 5-year milestone. Silverware represents purity, strength, and the connection between partners when they share a meal. In terms of daisies, each petal of the daisy represents something beautiful that grows from the solid center, which represents the couple’s bond.

Tips for buying the best 5 year anniversary gifts

  1. Remember to budget
    You never know how much a gift could potentially set you back! Whether you’re buying a gift for your significant other or another couple who’s celebrating, it’s a good idea to factor it into your budget so that you’re not unpleasantly surprised when the time comes.
  2. The thought matters more than the price
    An anniversary is a celebration of marriage and the love between two people. The sentiment behind an anniversary gift should never be overshadowed by its price tag. If the gift sends a message of love and well wishes, you’ve done well!
  3. Consider preferences
    What’s meaningful to one couple may not be meaningful to another. If the couple loves tradition in every sense of the word, traditional anniversary gifts are the easy choice. But if a couple is unconventional or they like practical things, unique or useful gifts are better options. It all comes down to preference.
