Sixth Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Him #giftguide

Each year, I am tasked with finding something really cool to give my husband for our wedding anniversary. Last year it was a hand stamped wooden box (5th anniversary traditional: wood) with a silver mechanical watch (modern: silver).

This year for our sixth wedding anniversary the themes are iron and candy. Finally, an easy one!

When it comes to iron options for Him, I really love the titanium ring with ironwood inner band on the top right. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I'm definitely drawn to it much like the ebony wood with turquoise inlay.

Tiger iron cufflinks are another chic option for him, especially if he's a business man. I love giving him cufflinks so this is definitely a great option.

For something vintage, there are tonnes of iron bottle openers on Etsy. I remember my Dad had one of these in our basement, a Coca-Cola one actually, and I always thought it was a really charming fixture. It was never used, but it was just a neat piece of unique wall art.

And...if your husband is a golfer, a new iron might be in the books. This has definitely been a front runner in terms of ideas over the past few months, but really...what do I know about buying him a golf club!?

In terms of candy, clearly you've got to give him his favorites and for my husband that is hands down fuzzy peaches. I always put a bag of them in his Christmas stocking and last year, he made the mistake of sharing with Owen...who now loves "Daddy's special candy." Whoops!

Sixth Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas for Her #anniversay #giftforher

As we celebrate six years of wedded bliss {or chaos...your pick!} this month, it's time for another mini gift guide...this time gifts for her!

Sixth Anniversary gifts are traditionally iron or candy, and for this girl...that is a-ok! The modern gift for a sixth anniversary is wood, but we did that last year for our fifth so this year I will be focusing on traditional gifts.

I love being creative when it comes to traditional gifts. Our first year was paper, so I got my husband the sheet music from our first dance song. This year is iron...iron...rail way...spikes. Both the rose gold necklace and steel bracelets are a great iron option from Happy Laura Jewelry are not only beautiful, but are incredibly unique. I love the design, both industrial and feminine!

Another great iron option are these wrought iron bracelets from gurly girl. They remind me of an old wrought iron fence, and would look beautiful in a stack of glittery bangles!

As for candy...hello. Get her whatever her favorites are! For me, that's cherry blasters and Strawberry/Grape NERDS.

Happy anniversary, ladies!

Much Love Monday, Silveware Gift Ideas

For the 5th wedding anniversary, the alternate gift idea is silverware. Ours is pretty plain jane, and the every day silverware is mixed and matched at this point. While it would be great to replace all of that and get some funky pieces into the mix, I went searching on Etsy for some unique pieces and found these two stunning ones that I just adore.

Silver spoon bracelet by Mon Petit Chou Boutique

Knife bell necklace by TheBeadLadies

The details on the handles of both pieces are so delicate and feminine, they're absolutely beautiful! And while you can tell that they were made from pieces of silverware, they are totally unexpected. Who would have thought that the end of a knife would make a beautiful pendant, or that two spoon handles could join together to create a lovely bracelet?!

When we originally registered for silverware, I thought for certain that I would never want the detailed pieces like my mother and grandmother had. Now, nostalgia has hit and I crave that attention to detail! What better way to satisfy that, than with these beautiful pieces!

Much Love Monday: 5th Anniversary Ideas

My husband and I are about a month away from celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary. While I am eclectic and unique in pretty much every other aspect of our lives, when it comes to exchanging anniversary gifts, I get pretty sentimental and traditional.

First anniversary was paper...he received sheet music of our first dance song
Second was cotton...he received beautiful new bedsheets {he's a picky one when it comes to our sheets}
Third was leather...but I cannot remember what I got him. A new wallet I think?
Fourth was fruit or flowers, and linen...he received a linen tie from Fox and Brie with a coral underside in a floral pattern

Fifth is wood and silverware. {get your giggles out now}

Here are my top picks for traditional fifth anniversary gifts for that handsome groom of yours {and mine}!

Mid Century office globe with wooden base by Modred12

Driftwood coasters by Railis

Ziricote inlay cufflinks by WalkingDune

Peppermill and salt grinder by tealandgold

All of the above options I am certain are ones that my husband would love, even the peppermill and salt grinder. They are modern, chic, and that is something he is coming to appreciate both in style and home decor.

The ultimate option I will be keeping under wraps as I am really really excited about it and don't want to spoil the surprise!

What anniversary are you celebrating? Do you like traditional gifts, or do you do something more unique?
