I sometimes wonder who came up with the ideas for "traditional" wedding anniversary gifts. They range from paper to leather to wool!
It was my husband & my 5th Wedding Anniversary yesterday, and when I googled what 5 years represented I was fairly disappointed to see wood! Lol
We did have a bit of a laugh about potential wooden gifts & I jokingly mentioned a wooden spoon. Fast forward to the day & my mum gave us a beautifully wrapped gift which including a particularly fancy wooden spoon! Luckily it wasn't from my husband or he might've been in the dog house! She also included some fancy tequila mixers which I'm very excited about trying out this weekend. It was my sister's 10 year anniversary last month and this is represented by tin. Mum managed to locate a tin bird bath after Lynne mentioned she would like a little water feature. Aw, what a thoughtful & creative mum eh.
Back to wooden presents, I picked a wooden construction kit by Professor Puzzle for Andy. I selected the aeroplane one (our son Rowan loves aeroplanes and would be keen to help daddy) & I received a lovely bunch of flowers. We decided we would go shopping this weekend and both pick a treat as neither of us could think of something we wanted in time for the big day.
It can be difficult to think of a new and exciting present every year for your spouse, and also difficult to think of something for your parents or children on their anniversary when they say they have everything.
This is when a gift basket can be a great present idea, as everyone enjoys tucking into a basket full of treats during a celebration.
Our anniversary gift baskets can be themed for general anniversaries like my 5th one, or for specific milestone ones like a recent 60th Diamond anniversary one we created.
