Wedding anniversary gifts have a theme for each year. The theme of the gift is said to mimic the progressive strengthening of the relationship. For example, the theme of the 1st anniversary is paper, 2nd is cotton, 3rd is leather, 4th is fruit or flowers, and the 5th is wood. Wood symbolizes strong roots that lead to an enduring relationship.

A fun fact about our business is that about one quarter of our keepsake memory boxes are ordered for a 5th anniversary gift! It’s such an honor for us to be part of a couple’s milestone anniversary.

Whether you’re purchasing a 5th anniversary gift for a couple that is dear to you or you’re looking for something special for your spouse, you cannot go wrong with a timeless keepsake box that is lovingly handcrafted from solid hardwood. We offer free laser engraving to personalize the box for the extra touch of specialness. We work with each customer (unlimited proofs) until we achieve what they are dreaming of.

For 5th anniversary keepsake boxes, here are some of our favorite personalization ideas:

  • Favorite photo from the wedding
  • Vows
  • Two interlocked puzzle pieces with the one person’s name on one piece and the spouse’s name on the other
  •  “5 years, 60 Months, 260 Weeks, 1,825 Days, 43,800 Hours, 2,628,000 Minutes and still counting…”
  • “Cheers to 5 Years”
  • A collage of words and/or children or pet names meaningful to the couple
  • Coordinates of meaningful locations to the couple (i.e., where they were married, where they honeymooned, where they live)
  • Any meaningful words or sayings

The customized personalization can be on the top of the box, inside the lid, or inside the box, on the side or back of the box as well.
