Wood 5th Anniversary Gifts for Him

Posted by Tmbr. on

First of all congrats on making it to 5 years of marriage. The reason you are here is because you may need a little help looking for that perfect 5th anniversary gift for him and by this point you probably already know that the traditional gift for 5 years is wood. You might be asking yourself “Why is the 5th Anniversary related to wood?” The answer is because in ancient times, trees symbolized strength and wisdom, and by the 5th year of marriage you have created strong roots and understanding of one another.

The Perfect 5th Year Anniversary Gift For Him or Her

Finding or creating that perfect gift for any occasion can be difficult, especially if it is for a big occasion or for that special man or women in your life. To help solve that problem and make your life a little easier, we offer wooden watches with engraving. Giving the gift of a personalized wooden watch is the perfect way to tell that person how you feel about them. They will be able to carry it with them always and be reminded by the custom engraving on the back of the watch.

Having a hard time deciding what to engrave on your wood watch? Read our blog post for some ideas.

Engraved wood watches are not just a great gift for him, but they are also a great gift for her. All Tmbr. Helm watches are unisex and available to be engraved. Our most popular women's wood watch is our Cherry Wood & Rose Gold Helm watch that comes with a light brown 100% genuine leather strap. Our Helm watches have a metal backing and offer a large area to be engraved allowing up to 25 characters for you to use to personalize. Whether it is your anniversary date, the date you first met, or a simple I Love You, we can engrave it.

Other 5 Year Wood Anniversary Gifts For Him From Tmbr.

If your husband is not what they like to call a “watch guy” then we have a couple other options for you that he may enjoy. We offer a wide variety of polarized wood sunglasses for men. All Tmbr. sunglasses come with stainless steel flex hinges to allow for different face and head shapes. The wood has been treated to help repel sweat and water to prevent the wood from drying out, which keeps them lasting for a long time. What people love most about our wood sunglasses is that they are lightweight and fit comfortably around the ears and on the nose.

Although we do not offer customization on our wood sunglasses, we do offer customized wood iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus cases. Our cases are a blank canvas for you to customize with your husbands initials, your anniversary date (so he doesn't forget) or maybe his company logo. This is a great gift option if you are looking for a simple way to give him something unique that he will touch and use everyday.

Giving Your Gift Should Be An Experience

We believe that gift giving (especially anniversaries) is not just about the gift, but it is about the experience of giving the gift as well. So you decided to buy a wood watch as the gift and you are trying to decide how to give it to him. Well you could just wrap it in a box and slap a corny card on it, or you could get creative with it. Below are a couple examples that we suggest trying out:

  1. Hide the gift and send him on a scavenger hunt.
  2. Get him to answer a quiz about things that have happened in your 5 years of marriage and if he passes, he will get the present.
  3. Print off a large picture of what you got him, and turn it into a puzzle and so when he puts the puzzle together he will see what he is getting.
  4. Fake out packaging - wrap the gift like in an old TV shaped box or something similar that will fake him out.
  5. Place the gift in a place that they always go and have them stumble upon it. For example where he keeps his cologne, or maybe the sock drawer. This requires you to be really on your game so that you can watch his reaction when he sees and opens the gift.

Whatever wood gift you give him for your 5th anniversary I am sure he is going to love it.
