5 Year Anniversary Gift For Him: What To Get

Today, we’re going to be looking at what to get for your 5 year anniversary gift for him. I’ve found that the longer you’re together, the more difficult it is to find deep and meaningful gifts for one another. However, this is why wedding anniversaries are also great because every year of marriage has a different symbol or gift idea. And the 5th year anniversary is no different!

Whether you’re looking for something sentimental, or something to make your husband laugh, we’ll be taking a look at lots of creative ideas in this article. But first, let’s take a look at the traditional gifts and symbols for the five-year wedding anniversary.

What Is The Modern Gift For 5th Anniversary?

There is also a modern gift to go alongside the traditional gift for every year of marriage. The modern gift is silverware. While your mind may instantly jump to thinking of cutlery, silverware can be so much more than that!

What Is The Flower For 5th Anniversary?

What Is The Color For 5th Anniversary?

The colors for the 5th anniversary vary dramatically. While some claim the color is pink, others claim it’s blue or turquoise! You can theme your gift around one of these colors if you’d prefer.

Gift Ideas For Him – 5th Anniversary

While you can buy your partner anything for the 5th year anniversary, some people prefer to stick to the yearly theme. There are some beautiful wooden gifts you can buy for him. Here are our top picks.

5th Year Anniversary Plaque

This hand crafted plaque is absolutely gorgeous and can be bought for him or for her. It’s $28.95 and already comes presented in a gift box, making it the perfect gift. The plaque itself is engraved with words around 5 years of marriage and ends with the line, “five years down, forever to go”. You can find this plaque from Kate Posh here.

Wooden Chessboard

If you and your husband like to play games together, a chessboard is an ideal gift. I love this Retro Wooden Chessboard from IADUMO. The models themselves are terracotta warriors and it’s uniquely different from a traditional chessboard. It comes highly rated and comes in at $55.99 for the medium-sized board. You can find this wooden chessboard here.

Some other ideas include:

  • wooden desk tidy
  • wooden furniture
  • figurines made from wood
  • fragrances that have a woody scent
  • woody scented candles
  • bonsai plant
  • wooden canvas photo of you both
  • wooden couple coasters
  • chopping board (for any budding chefs)

If you’re looking for a modern anniversary gift (silverware), you can even cut the corners and just buy your husband a piece of silver jewelry. It may be cheating, but we won’t tell if you won’t!

Do You Need To Buy Something From The 5th Anniversary Symbol?

While you may feel like you must buy something themed around one of the 5th-anniversary symbols, don’t feel under any pressure. If you know your partner would prefer another gift, or you’d rather buy something else – you can do that! The symbols for every year of marriage are just a tradition, and it can be one of the traditions you choose not to follow if you wish.

Do You Need To Buy Gifts Every Anniversary?

Honestly? No. I’ve been married 6 years in 2022 and we don’t ever buy each other gifts on our anniversary! However, we do often go out for a meal or stay over in a hotel. Do what suits you best as a couple. If you’d rather put the money for gifts towards a holiday, or a night out-do it! While there may feel like pressure to spoil your partner with gifts on your anniversary, this doesn’t have to be the case.

Conclusion

I hope this article has helped to give you some ideas of what to get for your 5-year anniversary gift for him. You can take the yearly anniversary gifts seriously, or with a pinch of salt – it’s all down to you and your partner! However you decide to celebrate, I hope you both have an amazing day.
