5-Year Anniversary Gifts for Them
Sound a little dull? Clearly, you have not been shopping for cutting boards lately. Today, cutting boards come in all variations of exotic and mixed wood designs, with ornate handles, and even custom engravings.
Were you considering a modern twist on the anniversary gift? Consider gifting silverware even if the couple has a basic silverware set, what couple could not use an additional serving set for entertaining.

Today you can find these useful items in exotic wood, making the gift even more unique.

A simple wooden holiday ornament could prove the right addition to their holiday tree and make a beautiful heirloom for generations to come.
While cocktail ware isn't exactly silverware, the addition of silver to stemware, shaker or a serving tray surely counts as a gift in the spirit of the celebrations. If you prefer to be a stickler, consider cocktail mixing utensils such as tongs or a long mixing spoon.
Wine in a wooden box
A bottle of wine is almost always appreciated as an anniversary gift, by upping the ante with a wooden gift box you will have certainly given the nod to the tradition.
Another twist on the gift of wood is a beautiful cork holder - a shadow box. Consider having it engraved with the couple's name and wedding date. This can serve as an elegant way to display the corks from celebratory anniversaries.
