What is the traditional five year anniversary gift?

The fifth anniversary is a special milestone in any couple’s relationship, and it deserves a special gift to commemorate it. The traditional fifth anniversary gift is wood, since it symbolizes the strength and endurance of a long-lasting relationship. Here at The Broken Plank, we know a thing or two about handcrafted wooden gifts, but first lets start with the history behind the five year anniversary gift.

The choice of a wooden gift is steeped in tradition and has a long history. It’s believed to be a meaningful choice for a five year anniversary because wood is strong and resilient and stands for the lasting bond between two people. The gift is believed to have originated in medieval Germany, when wood was a commonly used material. Since then, the tradition has been passed down from generation to generation, and wooden gifts are still widely used as a symbol of commitment and stability. Today, the meaning behind the five year anniversary gift is still the same: it’s a representation of the strength and stability of the relationship between two people. Wooden gifts come in all shapes and sizes, so there are plenty of options to choose from. No matter what type of wooden gift you choose, it’s sure to be a meaningful reminder of the special bond between two people.
