Iron Gifts for Your Sixth Wedding Anniversary
Celebrate six years of marriage with presents made from the traditional material—kitchenware is just the start.
Congratulations—you're approaching your sixth wedding anniversary! If you're proud of the strength of your relationship at this stage in your marriage, give your spouse a traditional gift for the milestone: something made of (or inspired by) iron. The durable metal is a great representation of your bond, from the six years that you've been married to the many more to come.
If you love the meaning behind iron anniversary gifts but you're not sure where to find one that suits your partner, look no further than this list of ideas. Iron presents come in many forms, some common and some totally creative. A popular choice is cast iron kitchenware—we love the skillet example ahead. That being said, not every person's a cook. Think about your partner's interests and lifestyle and personalize your pick.
Does the love of your life enjoy entertaining? There's everything from a fire pit to a bar cart ahead. What about accessorizing? There are items for fashion aficionados, too. In the home décor realm, you'll find things like custom signs and multipurpose baskets. For sporty types, there's even a looser interpretation of the theme: a golf iron. As you can see, you can really make the gift category your own. Just because it's based in tradition, doesn't mean that your present can't be unique. Start shopping today with the help of these examples, and the other suggestions in our roundup. Your spouse is bound to appreciate the meaning behind any symbol of your enduring love.
Possibilities abound when it comes to how you'll use the stylish and functional baskets in this trio.
