Wooden Gift FAQs
What to Get a Guy Who Likes Woodworking?
If your dad, boyfriend, grandpa, or guy pal has adopted a cool new hobby—or is an old pro— it is thoughtful to buy them gifts that support their interests. But if you’re concerned about spending serious coin on expensive equipment, don’t fret just yet. There are plenty of gift options at every price point for your woodworking man. Consider picking up a set of chisels or carving tools, wood glue (you can never have enough), a digital protractor, or a pair of nice work gloves. If he is interested in woodworking but doesn’t know where to start, give him a gentle nudge with a DIY whittling kit.
What is a Good Wooden Anniversary Gift?
Like any other present, a tremendous wooden anniversary gift will depend on the interests of the recipient. Thankfully these days, your options are more diverse than just wooden picture frames and furniture. If he is interested in fashion, you could pick up cool wooden accessories like a watch, sunglasses, a ring, or cuff links. Does your man prefer to spend time behind the grill than at the mall? Pick up some unique grilling accessories like wood planks, wood chips, or wood-handled barbeque tools. If your husband has a sentimental side, consider a gift that tugs at his heartstrings, like personalized artwork with your anniversary date or a custom Christmas ornament.
Why is Wood the 5th Anniversary Gift?
Unlike the traditional first wedding anniversary gift of paper or the third-anniversary gift of leather, wood might seem like a hardier, sturdier material. Trees are often symbols of durability, wisdom, prosperity, and more. Hopefully, by your fifth wedding anniversary, your relationship has adopted some of the same characteristics. The idea is that, like a strong tree, your relationship has developed deep roots, your love is more durable, and both individuals have grown wiser. Whatever the meaning is, five years is an incredible milestone to celebrate!
