5th ANNIVERSARY - FIFTH ANNIVERSARY

The 5th anniversary is a special anniversary for couples.  The couple is no longer considered “newlyweds” or “newly married”.   In our culture every 5th, 10th, 20th or 25th year holds a certain, special meaning.

  • TRADITIONAL GIFT: Wood is the traditional gift for the 5th anniversary.  Suggested gifts are a wooden clock, wooden music box, statue or something as simple as a wooden picture frame to display a special picture, possibly from your anniversary or wedding day.   

    MODERN GIFT: Silverware is the modern gift for the 5th anniversary.  Some silverware ideas are a vase, silver flatware or a silver picture frame to display that special photo.

    GEMSTONE: Sapphire is a very hard stone and its history dates back to biblical times.  It is thought that the tablets containing the Ten Commandments were made from sapphire.  It was also thought that the earth rested on a huge piece of sapphire which in turn reflected the sun and gave the sky its bluish color.  Royalty has worn sapphire to symbolize wisdom, holiness, virtue and good fortune. Suggested sapphire gifts include rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets.

    FLOWER: Daisies are the flowers associated with the 5th anniversary. The Daisy symbolizes love, purity, loyalty and innocence. Women appreciate flowers anytime, but giving daisies for the 5th anniversary shows her that you took the time to research the traditional flower gift.
