5th Anniversary: Wood

May seem like an odd gift to give your partner, especially after spending 5 years together, but again there are many options. Depending on your man, and his hobbies you will be able to pick up something clever by just keeping an eye out for his favorite down time activities. If your hubby is a major sports fan, get a signed piece from his favorite player and have it placed in a wooden case or framed. If your man is more of the handyman, a new set of tools would be perfect for him. Or maybe he is more of a workaholic, possibly a new desk will show your love for him. Mix it up and play with ideas.

Timeless love - classic!

10th Anniversary: Aluminum/Tin

Coming up with an aluminum or tin gift that your man will actually enjoy might seem like a challenge, but you will be surprised at how much fun you can have with this anniversary. For example, airplanes are made from aluminum alloy, if planned correctly, this can turn into a surprise vacation that will be truly unforgettable. However if a spectacular getaway is not in your budget, a gag gift such as a 6 pack of canned beer and a night in without the kids could be just what the doctor ordered. If you are more of the adventurous outdoorsy type, a new road bike for your exercise enthusiast man may be perfect.
