It's our 5th wedding anniversary this September...what "WOOD" gift/themed gift can you think of?

I like to stick to the traditional anniversary gift chart...and this year is "wood". I'd like to come up with something creative but we DON'T have much money to go around, so no "buy him a boat" or anything LOL.
Thank you!

  • How about a big piece of sanded wood shaped like a heart with both of your names carved into it? and the day you two met carved into it too.

  • How about one of those wooden name plaques for your front porch... You know the ones that say "Smith" nicely carved into the wood

  • oooo....firethearson...I LOVE that idea!
    We have a lot of picture frame-type things...but I think a family plaque type thing might be perfect....

  • You could go to a store that personlaizes and find a nice wooden box and have his initials carved on it. Or a wooden valet tray to go on your bedroom dresser, they are nice to store his wallet and pocket change.

  • does he have a hammer? sorry I am not as creative as some of the other ladies, and a wooden handle hammer is all I could think of. um...does he smoke? like a box of cigars, they would come in a wooden humidor. maybe find a wooden chess set, or backgammon thingy. OH! you said no boats, but what about a boat model? Ok i found a site http://marriage.suite101.com/article.cfm/fifth_wedding_anniversary_gifts_and_ideas
