Traditionally, the 35th wedding anniversary gift is coral. Both real and man-made coral can be made into jewellery and other decorative pieces. Jade is the modern gift for the 35th, which leaves open more jewellery and other options for a man or a woman on that special day.
For a woman, there are coral jewellery options that run the gamut from inexpensive to exotic. Rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets can be made with both real coral and man-made, artificial coral. Anniversary-Gifts-by-Year.com suggests man-made coral due to the fact that much of the world's coral reefs are under threat of extinction. Both man-made and real coral can be used to make decorative pieces for your home as well; bookends, serving trays, sculptures, candle holders and bowls are all sure to appeal to either a man or a woman on the 35th anniversary.
The modern option for the 35-year anniversary is jade. Happy-Anniversary.com suggests Asian-themed gifts like a jade sculpture of a tiger, dragon or a couple in an embrace. A tea pot, a bonsai plant or a chess set will also serve as a lovely gift for a man or woman. Jade jewellery options also exist---earrings, pendants, necklaces and rings---that run from under £6 to several hundred dollars.
Book a trip to the Caribbean or a different tropical setting, and snorkel in real coral reefs. Take a trip to the Orient, and experience ancient jade statues and art firsthand. Happy-Anniversary.com suggests an exotic trip to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia as an exciting way to celebrate your 35th year together. Anniversary-Gifts-by-Year.com suggests, for less expensive gifts, using coral or jade as a colour option and buying your love a bouquet of flowers, plants for a garden or clothing.
