Iron 6th wedding anniversary gift ideas for him

If your husband is a golfer, you’ve got a head start on the pack when it comes to buying 6 year anniversary gifts for him. Get him a new set of golf clubs and he’ll be chomping at the bit to get on the course and start using them. If he’s already got a set of clubs he wouldn’t swap for anything, buy him a few rounds of golf at the local course, or better still sign him up with a personal golf trainer. Or maybe he might enjoy using a gold dipped golf ball and tee set.

Why not purchase an iron sculpture, handcrafted by an artisan? It could brighten up his desk at the office or have pride of place on display on the wall.

For future clarity of thought give him an amethyst for a 6th anniversary gift

Like many anniversary themes the amethyst has meaning that is rich and diverse. It symbolizes freedom from drunkenness, clarity of thought, and spiritual wisdom. It is also a gemstone that offers protection from evil spirits and encourages bravery. A item of jewelry that features an amethyst will bring a sparkle to his eyes. But there are a number of others items that can have an amethyst for decoration. For example a tie pin, paperweight, or lamp.

While having a theme to follow is a great idea there is nothing stopping you from buying something completely different. If you know he’s been waiting for the latest console to come on the market go and get him one. If he’s into adventure then buy him some skydiving or scuba lessons. Give him a gift you’ve thought long and hard about, and he’ll know you love and care for him still.
