Perfect Custom-Made Gift for Your Five-Year Wedding Anniversary

charcuterie board for 5 year anniversary

Five years spent with someone you love can go by in what feels like the blink of an eye. It's a special milestone for couples and should be treated as such. Whether you’re searching for the perfect gift for your spouse or for a special couple in your life, a meaningful anniversary gift is a charming way to express your love.

Traditionally, the fifth wedding anniversary is also known as the wood anniversary. Like the material the anniversary is named after, a couple celebrating five years of marriage has grown and strengthened their bond during this time. What better way to represent your growing love than with a unique, personalized gift, made of wood? Explore these solid wood J Thomas Home gift ideas that sport various personalization options.

Personalized Charcuterie Board

A Char-what now? Also known as a meat and cheese tray, or an hors d’oeuvres tray. Except with a fancier name. J Thomas Home charcuterie boards boast some unique features, but the three laser-engraved personalization options available will elevate these from simple hors d’oeuvres trays to special milestone anniversary gifts.

These charcuterie boards are made of beautiful bamboo and come in two sizes. Both sizes boast convenient dividers that aid in keeping food separated. Flip the boards over, and they double as cutting boards. They're sealed with food-grade oil, so rest assured that they are safe for food preparation.

Noodle Board/Stove Top Cover

Once upon a time, you’d walk into your great-grandmother’s kitchen to find her working dough on a noodle board or chopping veggies for that evening's supper. Noodle boards were a common feature amongst kitchens – providing valuable workspace for preparing and serving food. While they’re no longer designed with food preparation in mind, they still provide additional workspace and are still an asset in today’s kitchen.

If you’ve heard your spouse mention that they’d appreciate a couple of extra feet of counter space, then consider a stove top cover as your five-year anniversary gift. The cover can be used as a space to hold drinks, casserole dishes, or your personalized charcuterie board full of snacks. Even if you have no need for extra counter space, many people simply use their noodle board to keep their stoves covered either for protection or to hide an unsightly stovetop that seems to gather crumbs, dust, drips.

J Thomas Home noodle boards come in a variety of finishes – from unstained to a deep carbon color. Add one of four engraving options, and you’ll have a personalized gift as unique as the relationship it represents.

Floating Shelves

Another unique gift idea is one that will hold your treasured wedding photos, honeymoon trinkets, and other items that are special to your relationship. Celebrate five years of marriage by selecting floating shelves to showcase these items anywhere in your home. Floating shelves make the perfect gift because they’re available in a variety of woods, finishes, thicknesses, depths, and lengths – making them easy to incorporate into any style of home.

J Thomas Home floating shelves are handmade with hardwood and characteristics such as knots, knot holes, and detailed wood grains – making each shelf as unique as your relationship. They come in depths ranging from four inches to 11.25 inches and can be between 18 and 46 inches long. A fun feature incorporated into some of the J Thomas Home shelves is built-in battery-operated lighting – making them a fantastic option for showcasing your special wedding memories.
