Our Fifth Wedding Anniversary

Happy anniversary to my best friend! I can't believe it's already been five years! We've seen all sorts of changes these past five years: moving to Chicago, buying a house, changing jobs, and having a baby. And I couldn't think of a better person to experience them with than you :)

While we're more likely to go out to dinner or take a long weekend trip than give gifts, I thought I would share a few gift ideas based on the traditional fifth anniversary gift: wood.

Mrs. Earrings, Dress, Shoes, Bracelets (knot, pink, white), Wood Clutch

That wood clutch is a little out of my price range, but isn't it gorgeous? I would love to take it with me to a fancy pants anniversary dinner.

AHeirloom cutting boards: Missouri, Flag, Chevron

We love to cook, so a custom cutting board from AHeirloom is only appropriate. They recently added the monogrammed cutting boards in addition to their always-popular state and country boards.

Beer sampler set and coasters from Taunton Green

As a homebrewer and lover of craft beer, a beer sampler set with matching coasters and a 6-pack of craft beers would make John one happy guy.

Chef Graham Elliot's custom wooden glasses

If your significant other wears glasses, Chicago's Urban Spectacles makes custom wooden glasses. As I've mentioned before, we're huge fans of the show MasterChef and judge Chef Graham Elliot wears a pair of bespoke wooden glasses made by Urban Spectacles. In related news, we went to Graham Elliot (the restaurant) for an anniversary dinner two years ago and he replied to my tweet about our amazing dinner.

Have a fantastic Friday and weekend!
