6th Anniversary Gift Ideas for Men

Updated March 23, 2017

It's your sixth anniversary. You want to honour your years together by giving your groom gifts that will make him smile and touch his heart. Look to traditional or modern gifts to please him. Traditional sixth-anniversary gifts include candy and iron. Amethyst and turquoise serve as dual gem stones for the sixth anniversary, according to Or, give him a gift made of wood, which is the modern take on a sixth-anniversary present.

Intimate Delights

Candy offers creative and romantic possibilities for your husband's sixth-anniversary gift. Light candles in your bedroom and scatter rose petals on silky sheets. Set a cast iron skillet, to serve as a tray, with two crystal glasses filled with decadent chocolate mousse. Invite your groom to an evening or afternoon of sweet and romantic delight. Adding a cast iron serving tray incorporates the second traditional sixth-anniversary material.


Since iron is one of the two traditional gift ideas for a sixth anniversary, give him two five-pound and two one-pound free weights to use as book ends in his office. Engrave your anniversary date and a line, such as "You will always be my heavy weight." If your husband plays golf, give him a nine-iron or another golf club.

Wood and Turquoise

Giving your groom wood offers creative options for a sixth-anniversary gift. For a gift that he will enjoy on different levels, give him an exquisite wooden box filled with gourmet chocolates. Or place a silver and turquoise tie clip or money clip on his pillow as a goodnight sixth-anniversary gift.
