Flawless 5-Year Anniversary Celebration & Gift Ideas
When you want the time to stop, it passes even faster. Time flies by when you are spending it with a loving partner. Years coalesce into a series of moments and one day you realize that your relationship is going to make it to a major milestone – your 5-year anniversary!
The 5-year wedding anniversary is a big deal and calls for some major celebration. But what should you do? Don’t worry, we’ve got you. Our guide includes the perfect blend of traditional and modern anniversary gifts.
What Is the 5th Anniversary Traditionally Called?
Traditionally, the 5th wedding anniversary is called the wood anniversary. You ask why? Well, no one knows exactly. To know more about them, visit our guide to anniversary gifts for every year.
How to Celebrate Your 5-Year Anniversary?
Here are some ways to make this event a celebration to remember. Also, if you want to have more ideas on celebrating your anniversary, check out our guide here.
If your schedules don’t allow you to plan an elaborate trip, you can opt for staying in your city/town and avail the entertainment and leisure options there.
The central idea is to make the most of the little time you have while being where you are. Arrange a staycation at a hotel or resort.
Cut yourself off from the regular hustle and bustle of the city to re-forge your love.
If staying at a hotel is not your thing, how about taking your partner out to the beach or a safe forest. However, make sure it’s a private place.
Enjoy the morning on the shore, lie on a blanket or in a tent in the evening and watch the sun go down. If it’s cold, curl up in front of a roaring fire and stargaze till the sun rises.
Relive Your First Date
This won’t be just any date. Remember your first date? Pick the same place and relive that evening.
Go glam; take that sexy black dress you thought you won’t be wearing again, get your black suit dry cleaned, and call the nanny over for the kids (if you have any).
Cook Dinner Together
If you are a couple that makes the most of the intimate night ahead of you, spend the night at home. Don’t let you partner slave alone in the kitchen instead join them and cook a simple yet special meal.
Apart from pictures, gift each other something that will give you both a flashback of your 5-year wedding anniversary.
Something that reminds you how imperfectly perfect it was and how you would not have preferred it any other way. Keep reading for some 5th wedding anniversary ideas.

You are the best
You are the best thing that happened to me
Its only you that I can see

But these five years were bliss
So, let me wish you with a kiss
