While the traditional 25th wedding anniversary is silver, your husband may not be thrilled to receive a silver tea set, sterling silver wine goblets or a pair of sterling silver cuff links. Instead, combine sentimental with the silver when selecting the gift, and take into consideration your husband's passions and interests.

Silver-plate a sentimental object belonging to you or your husband to create a unique gift. The object might represent a significant memory you two share, or a private joke. Silver-plate the keys he saved from his first car or the car he drove on your first date. Silver-plate the pinecones or seashells you two collected on your honeymoon. Look for that small object that does not necessarily have any monetary value, yet holds significant sentimental value for your husband. Instead of looking for an item that pertains to your marriage, select a beloved item from his childhood to silver-plate. This will show him you've been paying attention to what he views as significant. Yet, don't select something that silver-plating will damage, such as his great-grandfather's antique pocket watch.
Give him something a little funky in silver. It might be a silver-plated whistle, signifying that all he has to do is whistle, and you will be there. Give him a smart phone with silver inlays or a silver-plated flash drive. For the man who loves his toothpicks, give a sterling silver toothpick holder, or skip the holder and give him a sterling silver toothpick. So he will never get lost, give him a sterling silver compass. For more extravagant than funky, give him a sterling silver lighter or money clip. When possible, engrave the silver gift with a personal inscription.
Give your man 25 pieces of silver, one for each year you have been together. These gifts of silver can be silver dollars. Instead of coin, give him silver certificate dollar bills. Both silver dollar coins and silver certificate bills are collector's items. The actual value of the piece will depend on the year issue and the condition of the bill or coin. Yet, even a piece worth no more than the face value of the coin or bill will still hold sentimental value. If you want to give him a romantic trip abroad, look for silver coin from that country, to give as a token gift when you present him with the travel tickets.
