Five years is the first big milestone when it comes to celebrating a marriage and anniversaries. It is one of the few anniversaries where the traditional gift is the same. This is regardless as to what part of the world you are from. In this case, wood is the symbol for five years. The tradition began with the cutting of a piece of wood on the actual anniversary date. This was for crafting into an article for the lucky wife. Today, there are plenty of gift ideas for a five-year wedding anniversary. Here I offer some suggestions and interesting facts.
Are you searching for the perfect gift for a happy couple? Or something to help commemorate the event with your other half? I have some suggestions for all tastes and budgets. The symbol of the first wedding anniversary is paper. Although there are some interesting ideas on this theme, it may not be for everyone. It is also represented by its own flower, the carnation and a gemstone, mother of pearl. These options are covered elsewhere on my website, but here I am concentrating on the best first-anniversary gifts in 2020.
When searching for gifts with a flower theme relating to one particularly anniversary, the choice can sometimes be overwhelming. With regard to the fourth wedding anniversary, the symbolic flower is the hydrangea. This theme is available on lots of homeware items. Its colour ranges from pale blue to pink and is due to the level of acidity in the soil.
Linen represents the fourth wedding anniversary, and it is relatively easy to choose a suitable gift. Many items are available in this versatile material. Perhaps you yourself are celebrating a linen wedding anniversary. Or you are looking for a gift for friends or family. You are sure to find some ideas here. Of course, you could also use this opportunity to purchase an item with the relevant flower or gemstone. This would be a thoughtful touch.
The third wedding anniversary is not one that is particularly easy to buy for. Leather makes for an unusual gift and you may think there is little to choose from. My personal recommendation is this vintage leather book, which is not only attractive but could have so many uses too.
As the years march on, it can be increasingly difficult to come up with interesting and unique ideas. The happy couple may have acquired everything they need in life. That is no reason not to help them celebrate with a symbolic gift. Here, we suggest leather wedding anniversary ideas for all couples, no matter what their taste, and your budget. If leather doesn’t hold any appeal, then don’t forget the representative flower and gemstone. Read on to discover more suggestions.
One of the prettiest of flowers, lily of the valley symbolises the second wedding anniversary. It is a decorative feature on a variety of gifts. It is ideal for those who do not wish to purchase something made of cotton. Its sweet scent fragrances the woodlands of Asia and Europe during May and June. Lily of the valley represents abundance, innocence and purity. Although usually white, it is possible to find a pink variety.
Cotton from Egypt is the finest in the world and is available in many top-rated hotels and luxurious spas. It is always hand-picked, which is a guarantee of density and purity, combined with strength and softness. The thread count is an indication of its quality and ranges from 120 to 1000.
With every passing year, wedding anniversaries require an appropriate gift for the happy couple. This age-old tradition can be a bit of a headache, particularly when there don’t appear to be any suitable, and yet romantic, gifts. Take the second anniversary for example, and you might be disappointed to find that cotton is the expected gift. Not exactly awe-inspiring is it? However, there is always something appropriate for all tastes and budgets. Don’t forget, each anniversary also has its own particular flower and gemstone too, opening up a world of ideas. Here are some cotton wedding anniversary ideas for all budgets.
Are you looking to buy a gift for your first wedding anniversary? Not finding inspiration in any paper-related items? You could then consider a gemstone product. Mother of pearl symbolises the first anniversary, and there are certainly many items available that incorporate this beautiful gemstone. Each piece of mother of pearl has hand carvings from the shell, and therefore, unique in its appearance. Here I have given you a choice of two different compact mirrors, some delicate goblets and an elegant ice bucket. I hope you enjoy browsing the gifts and learn something from the facts and figures below.
