How sweet it is to be coming up on six years of marriage with your one and only —which is why the traditional 6th-anniversary gift of candy is the perfect treat to represent 2,190 days of wedded bliss. However, if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, you can opt for the alternate traditional suggestion of iron, which represents strength and durability, or the modern 6th-anniversary option of wood, to signify how the roots of your relationship have grown stronger over time.
Whether you choose candy, iron, wood, or a combination, we've got you covered with the best 6th-anniversary gifts to celebrate your love in style.
