After enjoying your fifth year of marriage, it’s now time to celebrate your sixth wedding anniversary. On this day, the gift you choose should be in line with the traditional or modern gift. The traditional gift is candy or iron, while the modern gift is wood. This is a year where the gifts symbolize the stability and strength of this union. Candy represents the sweetness in your marriage, iron represents good luck and strength, and wood represents a solid relationship.
Some gift ideas to celebrate your 6th wedding anniversary with a traditional style gift would be a box of chocolates, a handmade artisan candy dish, iron horseshoes, or an cast iron skillet or cookware. For the modern style gift, giving a handmade wood keepsake box, wood carving, or even a weekend getaway trip to a log cabin would make for a memorable anniversary.
You can also celebrate the occasion with jewelry. The gemstone for the 6th wedding anniversary is the amethyst or turquoise stones. Giving your wife a custom-designed ring, pair of earrings, or pendant necklace would make for a gift she can wear year-round. You can even have your spouse be part of the custom jewelry design process so they can truly make their own one-of-a-kind piece that they will cherish for years to come.
The calla lily is the 6th anniversary flower. Calla lilies come in so many different colors, so there is plenty of variety to choose from, and what a truly elegant flower it is. A small bunch of calla lilies in one color would make an ideal sixth wedding anniversary gesture.
Regardless of the gift you give your significant other, remember that the most important aspect of this day is the celebration of your successful marriage. Honor your 6th anniversary with love and reflection.
