Here at Maria Allen Boutique we often get requests to personalise our products with 5th wedding anniversary messages, a thoughtful and romantic tradition, but how many of us actually know why it is traditional to give a wooden gift to celebrate your 5th year of marriage?
The tradition of wedding anniversaries actually dates back to the Holy Roman Empire, when husbands would crown their wives with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary and with a golden wreath on their fiftieth. The tradition of giving gifts at other notable milestones developed somewhat later, in the 20th Century.
The wooden gifts of a 5th year anniversary represent strength and a well-rooted relationship. Wood is known as a strong and long-lasting material, a representation of the couple’s relationship at year 5 of their marriage.
We love to receive our customers’ fun and romantic messages, and enjoy helping them to find the perfect gift to express exactly what the 5 years means to them. Our range of personalised wooden anniversary gifts is extensive and we have something for both husbands and wives. Here is our round up of our favourite wooden anniversary gifts!
