Five Years of Wedded Bliss: Wooden Anniversary Gift Ideas

Eric and I are coming up on Five Years of married life. I try to stick to the traditional wedding anniversary gifts each year and though it's always a challenge,I've managed to rise to the occasion every year. I think I've found some fun ideas this time. Come and see!

A clock seems to be the obvious choice and this one is made with a repurposed vintage tray of teak. I like that it is old and new, traditional yet modern. Perfect for Eric and I.

This Driftwood Lamp also seems like a cool conversation piece. The many strands of fillaments in the crystal clear light bulb make the exposed bulb a striking and deliberate design element instead of eye sore.
This Couple Art Set would be my top choice if my budget were unlimited. The little bits of antique rulers and other reclaimed wood really make these pieces feel special. And of course it's old yet new again. There's a theme here!
I think Eric would looks so utterly cool in these Wooden Shades. I love the two kinds of wood they used- such an surprising detail makes something ordinary seem suddenly special.

The same is true of A wooden wristwatch. Suddenly it is totally distinct, all because it was re-imagined in an unexpected material.

Check out my complete round up of wooden anniversary gifts live on Etsy right here. What do you and your partner do to celebrate anniversaries? Fancy dinner? A good cuddle? Plant a tree? I'd love to hear!
