Gifts for a 35 Year Anniversary

Updated April 17, 2017

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. 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. 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. suggests an exotic trip to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia as an exciting way to celebrate your 35th year together. 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.
