The Best Five Year Anniversary Gifts are Made of Wood

Each year of marriage is traditionally celebrated with a specific gift that represents the strength of your marriage. When you’ve made it to 5 years, the traditional anniversary gift is wood. We have put together a list of the best 5-year anniversary wood gifts to give your spouse.

What does wood symbolize?

When a marriage begins, the first anniversary is represented by paper. As you grow as a couple, your relationship strengthens and the anniversary gift becomes stronger and more substantial. 

In your fifth year of marriage, the symbolic gift is wood. A tree has deep roots and large branches that are hard to break. This wood represents — a relationship that is strong, always growing, and rooted in love.
