Iron is the official gift for a sixth anniversary. If you're looking for a special romantic anniversary gift for the man in your life, give him something iron--specifically, wrought iron. There are numerous ideas to chose from. First decide if you want an indoor or outdoor item.
Wrought Iron and Candles
Candle glow is a romantic addition to any occasion and when combined with a wrought iron candle holder brings to mind the days of old when romance was an art in itself. Whether it's an iron wall sconce or table candle holders, this is an inspired, romantic gift idea for a man, and is perfect in a library or dining room.
If your special man loves being outdoors, give him a touch of romance for the deck or garden. Wrought iron fences, flower trellises, garden arches and plant holders add touches of beauty and romance. A beautiful, freestanding wrought iron sculpture can be the perfect gift. Benches, small iron tables and chairs, and even a rocker or glider will keep him smiling.
Gifts for the Home
Elaborate or contemporary iron wine racks make useful yet romantic gifts. You can even add a great bottle of bubbly to start off the collection.
Iron bookends are masculine and are wonderful additions to a library, or gifts for a book enthusiast. Pick a subject dear to the receiver and make it personal.
The Most Romantic Gift of All
If you want to go all-out for your special guy, get him a handcrafted wrought iron bed. You can find a romantic iron bed whether his style is country, ornate, mission, European, nouveau, modern, or contemporary. It can be a canopy, four-poster or sleigh-style piece, or a simple bed with clean lines. For ideas, check out some of the styles in the Resources section below.
