For every wedding anniversary you celebrate there are both traditional and modern gift suggestions. The fifth wedding anniversary is a good one for men because the traditional gift idea is wood and the modern silverware. Likewise, the gemstone associated with the fifth wedding anniversary is sapphire, which is a deep blue masculine colour.


Gifts made of wood are traditionally given on the fifth wedding anniversary. This allows you room for a lot of creativity when deciding what to get your husband. Wood can be engraved, which also allows you to personalise your anniversary gift. Hand carved wooden jewellery, plaques or a keychains make good gifts for men. You could also opt for a hand carved box or decor item for his room or office. Wooden bookends, clocks, desktop organisers or a wine rack are also nice fifth anniversary gifts. You may also consider a hand carved chess set.


Silverware is the modern gift suggestion for the fifth anniversary. Naturally, you could invest in a new set of silver flatware for a fifth anniversary gift. You can also get creative and look for other types of cooking utensils. Consider giving him silver bar tools, barbecue utensils, steak knives or a new silver corkscrew for your fifth wedding anniversary.


Sapphire is the gemstone gift suggestion for the fifth wedding anniversary. It is a deep shade of blue, which makes it ideal for men. Some sapphire jewellery to consider for a men's gift would include a tie pin, earring, ring or cuff links. You may also consider a money clip or keychain embellished with a sapphire.
