5 Year Anniversary Ideas
Get creative when planning your fifth wedding anniversary celebration. (silver engagement wedding ring image by Brent Walker from Fotolia.com)

The fifth wedding anniversary is a bit of a mental landmark, as it is the first of the "fives." The traditional gift for a fifth anniversary is wood, so there are a variety of ideas you could take from that, from furniture to picture frames. Alternatively, you could plan a day revolving around the number five.

Jewellery Box

Find a jewellery box made out of a beautiful wood and give it to her. You could give her simply the box, or make the gift more extravagant by putting a new piece of jewellery inside.


If he's a baseball fan, get him a wooden baseball bat. The bat could be extra-special if it's inscribed with the logo of is favourite baseball team. For the ultimate baseball bat gift, find one that has been signed by a favourite player of his.


Go to a fancy restaurant and have a five-course meal. If you're up to it, make the meal at home together. The courses could be: appetizer, soup, salad, main course and dessert.


If you want to go on an anniversary trip, plan a five-night cruise. The trip could be like a second honeymoon and you would have one night for each year of your marriage.


Match the number of gifts to your wedding anniversary. You would each give each other five small gifts throughout the day. To make the gift-giving more of a challenge, and possibly more meaningful, set a dollar amount you can't go over. For example, neither of you can spend more than £32 or £65.
