The five-year mark in marriage is a fun one—you’re halfway to a decade with each other! Now, how to show your appreciation and love for this important celebration? Traditionally, wood symbolizes the fifth-year wedding anniversary. That can definitely point to romance—imagine surprising your spouse with a glass of bubbly and a custom wooden board filled cheeses and charcuterie for a fancy date night in. The "modern" 5th year anniversary gift is silverware or flatware—trust us, it’s not as boring as it sounds. There are so many trendy options out there that will make every dinner at home shine from this point forward. For those who love jewelry, you can opt for something with sapphires, the gemstone of five years together. Blue and pink colors also symbolize this milestone.
That being said, you don’t have to stick with one of the symbolic five-year anniversary gifts if they don't fit for you. A perfect gift can also just be something that's personalized, sentimental or just suited to your partner’s personality and passions.
Here, we rounded up some of the best 5th-year-anniversary gifts to celebrate together.
