Diamonds may be forever, but wood is not that far behind. Warm, elegant, and substantial, hardwoods like oak, maple, and mahogany can be used to create some truly enduring gifts of the kind that recipients most appreciate. Picking out personalised wooden gifts for the fifth anniversary, as tradition suggests, can therefore be an easy and pleasant task.
One 25th wedding anniversary gift that appeals to people of both genders is the wooden bath rack. Designed to fit over the edges of a bath tub and hold things like a beverage, mobile phone, and bathing supplies, such a rack can help to make personal hygiene into a more relaxing and rewarding experience. Finished woods like oak are perfectly suited to the task, too, holding up very well to the moisture and other stresses of the environment.
Another gift that makes a big splash in the same room is a set of wooden duck boards. Properly finished hardwood has a soft, pleasant feel on the skin, and a wooden platform of this kind can therefore be an asset for any bathroom. A set of duck boards offer up a dry, secure way of getting into or out of a bathtub, while also contributing greatly to the design and atmosphere of the room.
Of course, many gift givers will want to give presents that are designed more for the sole enjoyment of a partner. One of the most popular 5th anniversary gifts for her is a wooden jewelry tray, a simple item that can be engraved in ways that make it more personal. Many of these trays are actually designed to be stacked one on top of another, too, so that separate, inscribed trays for earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and more can be given.
For those buying for husbands who work in office settings, one of the favorite 5th anniversary gifts for him is a paper tray that is engraved with the partner’s name. Once again, wood lends a beautiful, attractive air to what would otherwise be a pretty pedestrian item, and personalisation services can make the gift even more fun to receive and use every day.
Although it is sometimes overlooked, then, wood can be among the best materials of all when it comes to giving truly memorable presents. The grain of hardwood shows in a direct, pleasant way how natural and substantial it is, something that recipients rarely fail to notice. Wood, then, is one of those gift materials that often makes the longest lasting impressions.
