Gift for Them, Not for You

It’s easy to go from shopping for someone else to shopping for ourselves. “We have to dig just a little bit deeper and provide a gift that is more meaningful as opposed to what you would give during the wedding season,” says Lifestyle and Etiquette Expert Elaine Swann.

Swann says that when shopping for anniversaries, we need to “think deeply about what your partner will enjoy… Even if it is something that we might not necessarily like.” So as you go to pick up that artwork, jewelry, or other good, ask yourself if this fits the tastes of the person you’re giving this to. If the answer is no, you likely need to keep looking.

Get Creative

Most people will question if the gift they are giving fits the theme of that anniversary year. For example, a sixth wedding is associated with iron and sweets. But, you don’t necessarily have to follow these guidelines.

Swann says that it’s about turning these ideas of traditional anniversary gifts into more creative experiences or elevated items. For example, maybe instead of a box of chocolates, you two take a class with a world-renown pastry chef. Go outside the box to give a gift that will create a memory or lead to future moments for that couple or your significant other.


No matter who or what occasion you are gifting for, it is imperative that you keep in mind your budget. No gift or experience is worth financial hardship. If you are in the relationship, it could be worth discussing with your partner what the two of you can afford for presents or what money you can set aside for a trip together. After all, sometimes the best things to receive come from the heart and don’t always have an extravagant price tag.


  • The traditional gift theme for the 6th anniversary is iron to represent the strength of you and your partner’s bond after so many years together. Some common gifts to represent this gift can be a dutch oven, personalized bottle holder, teapot, jewelry stand, and more. Try to find something that aligns with your partner’s interests and hobbies that can commonly be made out of iron.

  • The modern theme for 6th anniversary gifts is wood. Wood is also the traditional 5th anniversary gift. It symbolizes the resilience of your marriage or relationship. Wood gift options include a serving tray or charcuterie board, wooden watch, engraved coasters, and so much more.

  • Anniversaries mark milestones in relationships that deserve to be celebrated. At this point, you have already celebrated five anniversaries together, so writing another card can become tedious or repetitive. It is always important to convey how much you love and appreciate your partner no matter how long you have been together. The reminder is always welcome. For something unique, try to incorporate traditional or modern themes of the anniversary into the card, whether it be the colors you use, the symbols you draw, or the material of the card itself. This will add a bit of flair to your special day, especially after so many years together.
