Personalized Wood Plaque With Heart
When you dedicate 35 years to a business or job, they often commemorate your commitment with some sort of award or plaque. Why is marriage any different? If you’ve managed to make 35 rotations around the sun with the same person, we think you also deserve a plaque! Show off your love for all to see with this personalized wooden plaque featuring a cute heart formed out of hands, plus you and your partner’s custom information.
Jade East Cologne Spray for Men
Jade is the modern symbol for a 35th anniversary, but that doesn’t mean you have to get a jade stone gift (although you absolutely can, and there are jade options further on the list). You can take a unique interpretation of the theme by getting your husband this cologne with scents of citrus, cedarwood, spicy florals, vanilla, and musk.
Gold Glitter 35th Anniversary Cake Topper

Plus, its chic rose gold design is engraved with a heart-melting message of love guaranteed to get some waterworks flowing.
Engraved Leather Tray with Corals Design
Coral is the traditional symbol and stone of the 35th wedding anniversary. However, real coral is a living animal, an essential part of marine ecosystems, and because of its importance, we don’t suggest purchasing genuine coral products. This engraved leather tray is a creative interpretation of the traditional theme without the harmful environmental consequences of harvesting coral. Plus, it has a similar message as the first print on this list if you enjoyed that sentiment but didn’t like the burlap design.
Two Peas In A Pod Jade Necklace
You and your wife go together like peanut butter and jelly, jack and coke, or milk and cookies.

35 Year Anniversary Gift FAQs
How Do You Celebrate Your 35th Anniversary?
There are as many incredible ways to celebrate your 35th anniversary as you have beautiful memories of your relationship. After all, 35 years means you’ve spent over a third of a century together as a married couple, which is an impressive feat indeed! However, it is sandwiched between the highly anticipated 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries, so it can often be neglected.
A meaningful gift is an excellent way to mark this incredible (but sometimes overlooked) milestone. If you want to turn the classic 35th anniversary gift into an inspirational theme for your activities, you could see some coral by going snorkeling or visiting a local aquarium. Additionally, you throw a fun party to celebrate, enjoy a weekend getaway at a bed and breakfast, go wine tasting at a vineyard, have a romantic dinner, or find another activity you both enjoy.
What is the 35th Anniversary Symbol?
Jade is the modern 35tth anniversary symbol. Jade is an incredibly durable material, and if your marriage has made it 35 years, it must be pretty resilient as well! Jade often symbolizes wisdom, good fortune, and love, hopefully, all things you have in your relationship.
What is a Traditional Gift for the 35th Anniversary?
The 35th wedding anniversary is often called the coral anniversary, and coral was a common traditional wedding gift. Coral is an incredible marine organism that many people might not realize is a living creature! They’re incredibly important for maintaining marine biodiversity, so we advise against buying genuine coral products that might not be harvested sustainably.
In our modern era, jade has replaced coral as the prominent 35th-anniversary gift. This vibrant stone is known for its beautiful soft green hue and often represents wisdom, good fortune, and love.
What Color is 35 Year Anniversary?
The 35th wedding anniversary doesn’t have an associated color like some anniversaries do, but it does have a special gemstone— the emerald. You can draw inspiration from the variety of beautiful hues associated with the 35th wedding anniversary, including the orangey-pink coral, the soft and luminous jade, and the deep and bright green of emeralds.
