Five years is an important milestone for couples. By now, you’ve probably weathered a storm or two, shared many happy moments, and uncovered plenty of each other’s “charming” quirks. Your shared experiences have undoubtedly strengthened your bond and made you both a little wiser and more in tune with each other.
It’s no coincidence, then, that two of the traditional gift themes surrounding the 5th anniversary are wood and sapphires, two powerful symbols of strength and wisdom. To help you celebrate this special milestone, I’ve selected a dozen five-year anniversary gifts in line with these themes. Whether you choose a traditional wooden gift or a piece of sapphire anniversary jewelry, you’ll have a meaningful symbol of your ever-deepening connection and strong roots.
