Why wood for 5th wedding anniversaries?
Also known as ‘the wooden one’, a 5th wedding anniversary is synonymous with gifts made from wood. This is because, as a couple, your relationship now enjoys the traits of a tree – rich in strength and wisdom. A wooden gift also represents the strong, deep roots it takes to grow a healthy, long-lasting tree, just like the healthy relationship and strong partnership it takes to reach five years of marriage.
Of all the anniversary gifts, wood on your 5th has a real meaning that makes sense. Made from hardwood, a wooden gift on a 5th anniversary will go on to last a lifetime, just like a strong relationship.

Whether you’re buying for your partner or a couple, we’ve got the perfect gifts for him and her, all made from hardwood.

The finest wood, straight from the heart
We have some of the most skilled craftsmen, making over 200 stunning gift designs every day, but they’d be nothing without the quality wood we source and use. Every piece comes from sustainable forestry and is hand-picked by us. From garden pegs to royal toy boxes, we make our items from the finest-quality hardwood, including local English oak from less than 25-miles away.
More than this though, we only ever use the heartwood of a tree, this is the most sturdy and highly-prized portion of the tree, and of course, the most expensive. The majority of this wood is then Quarter Sawn to create a strong, warp-resistant structure that displays the ribbon-like pattern for a real wow-factor.
