A five-year anniversary
is a milestone that marks 1,725 days of building a solid foundation for many happy years ahead. It’s no coincidence that the traditional five-year wedding anniversary gift is wood
. Trees soar to new heights, reach for the sun and grow roots deep into the earth. Here are a few wood-themed ideas to make this milestone extra special.
Take a Hike.
Few things replenish the soul like the beauty of nature. Pack some cheese, crackers, fresh fruit and a bottle of wine, and explore a local hiking trail. You could even surprise that special someone with a fully stocked picnic backpack complete with dishes, cups and, of course, a corkscrew.
Plant a Tree.
Love starts as a seedling and blossoms into something much bigger. This year, plant a tree and watch it grow year after year. The tree will add beauty as it cleans the air around you. And who knows … maybe that tree will hold a tire swing for the next generation one day.
Entertain in Style.
If you have ever enjoyed a luau in Hawai’i, you have a special appreciation for the beauty of wooden serving platters. Wooden serving trays, salad bowls and dishes can be dressed up or down, making them ideal gifts for those who love to share their joy with others—whether it’s a backyard BBQ or a tapas soiree.
