You’ve not quite hit the milestones of 10th, 25th or 50th, but a 5th wedding anniversary is nevertheless quite an important occasion. There are heaps of gift ideas available on the internet, or in shops on the local High Street, and for a 5th anniversary the symbols associated with this special day are wood (traditional) and silverware (modern). You also have the Daisy (flower symbol) and the gemstone Rose Quartz.
Sticking with the Traditional
If you’ve decided to stick with a traditional theme, then you’re going to be spoilt for choices. Wood is a very versatile material, and 5th wedding anniversary gifts for a husband come in all shapes and sizes. You won’t have a problem finding lots of things that are made out of wood. Cheese boards, wine boxes, note holders, photo frames, plates, coasters and plaques. You can also find a beautiful range of wooden jewellery that includes rings, pendants and bracelets. All made from wood of varying types, colour and style. If your husband is a lover of art, see if you can find a unique wooden sculpture, either a small one for the home or a large one for the garden.
You also have the opportunity to think a little out of the box where wood is concerned. Is your husband a keen gardener? Do you have the space in your garden for a tree? Is yourr husband a keen environmentalist? Why not make a donation in his name, to one of the woodland charities? Maybe your husband is musically minded, and would appreciate a guitar or violin. You could also see if there are any wood carving lessons taking place in your area, or give him a book, which of course will have wood pulp for pages.

Interested in a Modern Alternative?
Silver is a strong and versatile material, no surprise that it was chosen as a modern alternative to the traditional 5th wedding anniversary gift. When it comes to your husband this might be a difficult gift to find, as much of the silverware is female orientated, as well as being predominantly for decoration. As men much prefer their gifts to be practical see if you can find the perfect silver watch, cufflinks or bracelet. Not quite silverware but more silver wear.
Make Your 5th Wedding Anniversary Memorable with a Touch of Romance
Celebrating your 5th wedding anniversary? Is the big day just round the corner? Feel that a bit of the romance has gone missing? Time to inject a little back into your relationship on this very important day.
Getaway for the Weekend
Incorporate the theme of wood with your getaway, and take your husband off to spend the weekend in a log cabin. If you ask the company providing the accommodation, you might even get a bottle of bubbly thrown in. Many companies offer special packages for couples celebrating a wedding anniversary.
Highlights Including the Number Five
As it’s your 5th wedding anniversary, see how many different ways you can bring the number 5 into the celebration. Eat in a 5 star restaurant, book tickets for a 5 day cruise, 5 boxes of his favourite chocolate, 5 bottles of cologne or 5 bottles of red wine – get the picture?
A Scrapbook of Memories
It’s always romantic to look back over the good times you’ve shared, so get an attractive scrapbook and fill it with photos, and messages you’d want him to read. Make sure there are some spare pages, so that you can continue to fill it with memories of all the years to come.
Write Him an Anniversary Poem
A great way to inject some romance is with a specially written anniversary poem. With some well chosen words you can easily express your undying love for him, and show him that he holds a special place in your heart. Think you don’t have the words in you? You’ll be surprised how easy it is to find a few sweet words. Write the poem in the anniversary card you give him, post it on Facebook or share it on Pinterest. Don’t be shy in coming forwards, just let your creative juices overflow. Think you’ll come unstuck with your choice of words? There are plenty of online sites that have many you can choose from.
How About a Family Party as a 5th Anniversary Gift for Your Husband?
Well you’ve been together for more than 5 years, so it’s highly likely that you’ve both got lots of friends and family. And you can be pretty sure that they’d love to share in your celebration. A surprise party is one of the greatest 5th wedding anniversary gifts for a husband, and is a fantastic way to share the bonds you’ve been cherishing since the day you first met.
Give yourself plenty of time before the day arises, as there will be plenty of planning, if you want the festivities to be memorable. Get in touch with your friends and relatives and tell them of the impending event. One great way to make the affair special is to recreate your wedding day. If you were married on a tropical beach somewhere, you might find that this is out of the realms of many of the guests, but you could always try and replicate the event somewhere more local. Get your friends and family to meet you on the beach, and everyone can be dressed in their best swimwear. Or why not hire out a local swimming pool and have a pool party? As your guests are going to be an integral part of the celebrations, make sure you ask whether they think it’s a good idea.
Don’t ever be bamboozled by the problem of finding the perfect gift for your husband, boyfriend or partner. There is truckloads of help at hand when you need to find the perfect gift. Don’t stress over what you buy, because whatever it is your other half will understand the thought and feelings that went into choosing it. 5 years may not be long, in many people’s book, but for you it’s going to be a big occasion. And hopefully the start of many more anniversary days to come.
