5th anniversary gift ideas are great when they are romantic and memorable. This anniversary is celebrated with wood and you can find some great romantic wooden gifts.
If you like big expensive presents then have a look at buying your very own woodland, have a look at woodlands.co.uk they are a family run business and have been operating for 20 years. They specialise in finding affordable woodland to suit your family.
A beautiful way to remember this anniversary is to send a bouquet of wooden flowers.
This lovely bunch of roses is from JustPaperRoses.
Another beautiful romantic gift idea is a Wooden Love Spoon, they are mainly a Celtic tradition and originated hundreds of years ago. The custom was that a man would spend time carving a wooden love spoon for the woman he loved, if she accepted this gift then the couple would be seen as being together and a relationship would begin.
We were lucky to be in Wales on holiday when we got engaged, Wales is famous for it's Love Spoons, and it seemed perfect to buy one while we were there. All of the spoons are unique but they all have symbols that mean something, ours has a heart meaning love, a lock meaning security and a bell meaning a wedding or anniversary. They are a very romantic gift and ours still brings back happy memories 15 years later.
Other symbols you may see on wooden love spoons that would be great for an anniversary gift are; a ball in a cage - love held safe, a chain - to stay together forever, a diamond - wealth or good fortune, horseshoe- good luck, knot - eternal love, twisted stem - two lives become one, security - I shall look after you.Have a look at these great wooden love spoons available on ebay at the moment.
For our 5th wedding anniversary gifts we received a beautiful wooden bowl and that for me is the beauty of wood, it lasts forever and can be both beautiful and practical.
