Fifth wedding anniversary gift ideas –
The Wood Anniversary:
Fifth wedding anniversary gift ideas – in my blog Traditional Anniversary Gifts By Year we found out the historical origins of wedding anniversary gift giving. This blog is the fifth in our series of wedding anniversary gift ideas.
We wanted to share some items which we think make brilliant ffifth wedding anniversary gift ideas. We selected a number of items from small, independent businesses in the hope to inspire.
Personalised wooden luggage tags
It’s always a lovely thing to know that a gift has been made just for you, especially when it comes from an independent business. These luggage tags from Maria Allen Boutique made the perfect wood gift for him, her or them if you’re buying for a couple. They are etched with the words ‘The Adventures of’ with your choice of names, and a message of your choice on the back. What’s not to love?
Bespoke wood peg people
Aren’t these adorable? These hand painted peggies are from from Helena Tyce Designs and really are the ultimate in owning your own piece of bespoke art! They are sure to be cherished for years to come on the mantelpiece.
Helena says “Inspired by Russian stacking dolls and her own Polish heritage, Helena has created a wonderful & unique keepsake. It really will be gift that everyone is talking about and will be treasured for many years to come. We particularly like the idea of how you display your peggy family and feel a bit of fun could be had here in the vein of “Elf on the Shelf”. Our family get up to all sorts of peggy mischief!”
All you need to do is provide photographs of the people you want immortalising in peggy form and Helena will will do the rest. Priced at £75.00 for two adult peggies. MORE HERE.
An oak wood monkey swing
The simple things in life are the best things aren’t they? A swing in the garden is the perfect retreat from the world and a lovely place to remember and make memories. These little monkey swings from the clever people at The Oak And Rope Company can be hand engraved too, yay!
They say “Easy to find a home for. Simply tie around a branch in the garden or in a beam inside the house, and you will have endless fun.”
Supplied with 6 metre of 18 mm manila rope. Seat measures 25 x 16 x 4.5 cm approximately. Prices from £105, MORE HERE.
This month will also see me making new work using wood to celebrate my 10 years in business. I have set myself the challenge to make a new piece of jewellery per month for the rest of the year. Each month will be themed by the materials of the anniversaries 1-10. Do follow me on Instagram to track my journey.
