Can’t see the wood for the trees? Don’t worry – trees are what this theme is all about. Trees are strong and have put down deep roots. They’ve been buffeted by gales but they’re still standing and still growing. Sounds familiar? Five years… this is getting serious!

Wooden household items: salad spoons, chopping board, wine rack

A fifth anniversary deserves a right good knees-up! So you’ll be needing to get out the goblets, serving dishes, champagne bucket and candles to really set the scene.

Any silverware for the home – if it’s shiny, it counts

Presents with a flower theme that embraces daisies (e.g an art photo or print, fragrant candles, perfume or room fragrance)
Gifts with a floral motif (e.g handkerchiefs, napkins, underwear).
