Wood anniversary gifts are traditionally chosen to celebrate five years of married bliss. You’ll appreciate the symbolism. Wood (especially oak) is strong and long-lasting, just like a happy marriage should be after five years.
If you’re searching for wooden gifts for 5th wedding anniversary recipients – perhaps for your husband, maybe for friends – we create personalised, handmade gifts from the highest-grade oak.
Wood anniversary gifts follow fruit and flowers
It’s fun to focus on the traditional gift for each year of marriage. Most of us know it starts with paper at one year. Did you manage that? It’s then cotton at two years, leather for three years and fruit or flowers for four years.
All seems quite straight forward so far!
Well, now you’ve got to wood: the tradition for 5th wedding anniversary gifts. It’s the perfect material to choose something a little more long-lasting.
Whether their taste is modern or old, wooden gifts are timeless. There’s something rather tactile about wood – we’re compelled to touch it and run our fingertips over it. Everyone loves to receive a gift made from wood.
Wooden gifts for 5th wedding anniversary ideas
Your choice of gift will depend on the recipient. Should it be a couple – perhaps friends or relatives, our personalised chopping boards are popular. If it’s a gift for your other half, consider our bath tray or tealight holders (just add bubbly).
Here’s a little inspiration for you:
Idea 1: personalised chopping boards
With many shapes and sizes to choose from, our boards stand proudly in any home. Practical as well as beautiful, we’ll engrave your personal message on the edge and base. They’re fabulous wood anniversary gifts.
Our Gin & Tonic Chopping Board is a favourite. The perfect way to prepare your tipple. And a classic option is our Medium Chopping Board. Whatever you choose, they’re all created to order from solid, European oak – handmade in Worcestershire.
Idea 2: bath tray
A slightly more romantic 5th wedding anniversary gift is our bath tray. With a nod to relaxing evenings, it sits comfortably over the deepest bubble bath, holding everything they might need whilst amongst the bubbles: tealights that sit safely in dedicated holes, a tablet holder and a wine glass holder slot.
With different widths available, you can add a personal message on the edges in addition to the base (a secret message perhaps?) It’s as sturdy as they come – and the perfect finishing touch to any bathroom.

Idea 3: tealight holders
Handmade in many sizes, tealight holders make thoughtful wooden anniversary gifts. Sit them on the hearth or perhaps in the bedroom. With the tealights lit, they’ll soon create an intimate atmosphere – perfect for 5th wedding anniversaries!
From two tealights upwards, we’ll create the size you want. And the bigger the holder, the longer your personalised message can be. We include the tealights, so they’re all set, having unwrapped your gift.

Want to add a bit more fun?
Our personalised wooden key rings raise a smile every time. Add your celebratory message or recognise their special place; be it their garden (man) shed or a storage chest of special things in the home.
Any wedding anniversary is a time for gifts: the 5th one is no exception. With a wooden theme, be as creative as you like with us, and know they’ll love the result. We’ll even custom-make your gift if it’s not based on our range.
