6th wedding anniversary gift


Traditional Theme for 6th Anniversary Gifts – Candy / Sweets (UK), Iron (US) 

Sweets for my sweet? Contrasting ideas for the sixth Traditional theme from each side of the Pond! The UK likes to emphasise the (almost constant) sugar high of a great relationship. While our American cousins want to big up the strength and solidity of a six-year union.

Gift ideas for 6th anniversary traditional themed gifts

  • Box of chocolates… job done!

  • Or a trip to a chocolate factory… or better still Switzerland, where they know a thing or two about cocoa beans

  • Masterclass on making macarons

  • Iron – another golf club… or a long weekend somewhere sun-drenched

  • Anything stainless steel – a knife set

  • His’n’hers steel

  • TAG Heuer watches

  • Get steamy with a steam iron?? (maybe not)

Modern Theme for 6th Anniversary Gifts – Wood   

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? Six years together… this is getting serious!

Gemstone for 6th Anniversary – Amethyst (alternatives: Turquoise, Garnet) 

An amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. The name comes from Greek words meaning “not intoxicate” as it was believed that such stones protect the wearer from drunkenness. Surely worth a try? Alternatively, Lily Gardner offers amethyst jewellery that anyone would be happy to raise a toast to.

Any jewellery featuring amethyst, turquoise, or garnet: bracelets, bangles, cuffs, necklaces, pendants, earrings, rings. 

Flower for 6th Anniversary – Calla Lily 

Calla (or arum) lilies have a white conical flower with a cheeky yellow ‘spadix’ sticking out. For Christians these lilies can symbolise purity and faith; while the Romans thought they represented lust and sexuality! You pays your money…

  • A bouquet or a pot of calla lilies

  • Presents with a flower theme that embraces calla lilies (e.g an art photo or print, fragrant candles, perfume or room fragrance)

  • Gifts with a floral motif (e.g handkerchiefs, napkins, underwear)
