Andy and I just got back from a trip to Portland, Oregon to celebrate our 5-year anniversary. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long, time flies, etc, etc. We had a wonderful trip. And, in case a similar milestone is coming up for you, I created this handy gift guide based on the traditional 5th wedding anniversary gift of wood.

<a data-pin-do=”embedBoard” href=””data-pin-scale-width=”80” data-pin-scale-height=”200” data-pin-board-width=”400”> Follow Laura’s board 5th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas on Pinterest.</a>

  1. For the traditionalist: red roses that will never wilt

  2. For the gadget lover: a solid wood phone case

  3. For the organizational junkie: eucalyptus storage boxes (perhaps filled with her favorite treat…)

  4. For the hostess with the mostest: a personalized cutting board or a wood wick candle (bonus wood points for the campfire scent)

  5. For the jewelry maven: wooden stud earrings or a wooden heart necklace

  6. For the nature lover: Adopt an Acre from the Nature Conservancy

  7. For the reader or advernturer: A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson

  8. For the whiskey afficianado: Woodford Reserve Double Oaked (see, it’s EXTRA woody)

  9. For the home: a tree!

  10. And if you’re really just not into wood, then you can go big with the traditional 5th anniversary gemstone instead: sapphire and diamond anniversary band

Happy celebrating!
