WOOD - 5th Wedding Anniversary Gifts
(or Silverware & Sapphire Gemstone)



Wood is the relevant element for traditional 5th wedding anniversary gifts. The use of wood in our culture is as old as time. In fact, our early ancestors’ use of wood lifted them far above and beyond, both the animals of the forest but helped make them masters of their environment. Wooden vessels conquered the seas and helped mankind colonize every corner of the world. Wood has been shelter and warmth, shield and weapon, foundation and canvas for every human endeavour since Adam left the Garden.

It should come as no surprise then that wood should be the basis of 5th anniversary gifts. On your fifth wedding anniversary, there is virtually nothing that you can’t find fashioned in wood. In fact, the traditional 5th anniversary gift can be anything from a house to a matchstick.

It demonstrates that in the eighteenth century, a woman’s place was in the kitchen and 5th wedding anniversary presents reflected that.
