Wedding Anniversary Gift Basket-Year 4-6

May 9, 2008
A wedding anniversary is a joyous occasion in a couple's life as a celebration of the love and commitment that they have for each other. An anniversary gift basket is an ideal gift which is much more personal than a store-bought item. You can incorporate all the symbols that are associated with each anniversary to create a gift basket that conveys your best wishes to the happy couple.

The fourth wedding anniversary traditional gift is fruit or flowers to symbolize the prosperity and health of the union and the contemporary is appliances. This anniversary's color is blue or green, while the flower is the geranium, which symbolizes comfort and gentility. The violet is also associated with this anniversary, a symbol of faithfulness and modesty.

You could make a fruit or bouquet anniversary basket, or you might want to make a gardener's gift basket, including seeds, a handheld hoe, and a small shovel. You can also make a traditional basket that includes fruit- and flower-scented items, such as candles or bath accessories. You can incorporate blue or green colored items throughout the basket or trim it with blue or green ribbon. For an appliance gift basket, you might purchase an electric mixer with mixing bowls and include measuring cups, measuring spoons, and some cake mix as well as some recipes. This can also be trimmed in blue or green. You can scatter violets throughout your basket and a single geranium blossom can be added as a nice final touch.

To celebrate the fifth wedding anniversary, the traditional gift is wood that symbolizes that marriage is strong and enduring. The contemporary gift is silverware to symbolize the bonds that have been made by sharing meals together as a couple and as a family. This anniversary's color is blue, pink, or turquoise. The daisy is the flower for this anniversary and symbolizes innocence, loyal love and purity. The pansy is also associated with the fifth anniversary and represents love.

For a traditional gift basket, you can include wooden items such as wall decorations, an antique-looking bread box or potato bin, or other wooden furnishings for the couple's home. You could also create a gift basket based on trees, such as a sapling, gardening utensils, and an art print of a tree or a forest. You can trim the basket with whichever one of the three colors blends with the items inside. For a contemporary basket, you could include silverware as well as other silver items, such as shakers, napkin rings, and candlestick holders to add a touch of elegance to any dining room table. You can also include blue, pink, or turquoise napkins and a daisy or pansy centerpiece that includes smaller flowers that match the color of these napkins to complete your dining gift basket.

The sixth anniversary traditional gift is candy, which symbolizes the sweetness of the union, or iron, which represents the sturdiness of the relationship. The contemporary gift is wood, which also represents durability. The flowers associated with this anniversary are the Calla lily, which represents purity and happiness, and the tulip, which symbolizes love and charity. White is the color for the sixth anniversary.

For a traditional gift basket, you could create a candy lover's dream with a wide assortment of chocolates and other types of candy, or purchase small iron-cased figurines. There are many wooden items that you could include, such as wooden figurines, a cutting board, wooden spoons, or a wood etching. You could also base your wood gift basket on trees, including a picture of a tree or a forest. Choosing a wooden basket, trimming it with bright white ribbon, and adding a combination of different colored lilies and tulips can make your basket colorful and vibrant.

These are just a few of the many ways that you can create your own anniversary gift basket. Have fun and do not be afraid of combining the traditional with the contemporary, as well as mixing the different colors and flowers. Let your imagination be your guide.
