A fifth-year anniversary is a milestone, so it’s all the more important to show your spouse how much you care. But after so much time together, picking out a gift might be starting to feel more difficult. Traditionally, wood is the five-year anniversary gift, symbolizing the durability of your relationship. But if you’re looking to give something more modern, flatware and sapphire jewelry are also classic tokens of affection for this anniversary.

To make it easier to find the perfect present, we’ve rounded together some of the best gifts—from traditional to modern—to make the date feel special. We especially love those that are customizable for a truly unique keepsake. Go above and beyond and round out your gift with a bright bouquet of daisies, the iconic flower that represents this anniversary.

Here, the best 5th-year anniversary gifts.
