Although some wedding anniversary years are well known because of their link to a particular substance, precious metal or material, the 6th wedding anniversary has no such famous connection. Unlike the 50th year, renowned for its golden link, or the 25th anniversary forever associated with the precious metal silver, 6 year anniversary gifts do not have such an obvious substance associated with them.
Even though the material connected with the 6th wedding anniversary is not so well known, it is still vital to choose a considerate gift that demonstrates to your friends and loved ones the depth of affection and feeling that you have for them.
Opting for a dull or thoughtless present is out of the question, and you may find that you are struggling to think of something that you haven’t already given your loved ones over the last 5 years of their union. Creativity is the order of the day to bring a special message of love to the recipients.

Traditional 6 Year Anniversary Gifts Ideas
Like all other wedding anniversaries, the 6th wedding anniversary is also linked to a specific material symbolizing a facet of the couple’s relationship. Traditional 6 year anniversary gift ideas are candy and iron.
Although they may seem like unusual substances with which to link a couple’s union, in fact there is a symbolic meaning behind the association. Candy is said to be a representation of the sweetness of the couple’s loving marriage, while iron is likened to the strength and unbreakability of a couple who have been wed for 6 years.
Many gift givers like to surprise their loved ones with a 6 year anniversary gift incorporating one or both of these traditional themes.
Giving Modern 6 Year Wedding Anniversary Gifts
When the original list of wedding anniversary materials was finalized in 1937, the world was a very different place, and several of the items listed on it are now considered to be out of date or even inappropriate in some cases. For this reason, a new list was drawn up recently which links more up to date gifts for each year of marriage, thought to be more suitable for modern married couples.
In this newly created list, the 6th wedding anniversary has been linked to wood, symbolizing strength and marital solidity. If you wish to adopt this theme for your 6 year wedding anniversary gift, you can choose from many gorgeous wooden gifts like wooden sculptures, personalized chopping boards for the kitchen, carved storage boxes or even trees for planting in the couple’s garden as a lasting reminder of the happy day.
Floral 6 Year Anniversary Gift Ideas
Most anniversary years have a particular flower linked with them, and the 6th anniversary is no exception. The stunning calla lily is the blossom that should be traditionally offered to couples on the occasion of their 6th wedding anniversary, and an elegant bouquet of these lovely flowers is the ideal present to surprise the happy pair. Alternatively, why not give a purple themed floral arrangement, as purple is the color associated with the 6th year of marriage?
A long-lasting floral memento of this milestone is a magnificent purple glazed Eternity Rose. These individually designed artworks are beautifully and intricately worked by talented craftsmen from real natural roses and trimmed with the most opulent 24 karat gold edging. Giving one of these luxurious ornaments as a 6th anniversary gift for your loved ones shows a depth of affection and esteem that is difficult to express as perfectly with any other present.
