5th Anniversary Gifts That You Can Create Together

5th Anniversary Gifts That You Can Create Together

You've been together for five years, and that's amazing! You've traveled together, you've made memories, and you're still madly in love. So what about your anniversary gift? You don't have to get them something big, extravagant, or expensive. It can be simple, like something homemade, or even just spending time together doing something they have always wanted to do with you but never had the time or money for it.

Gift ideas that are simple and affordable

If you're looking for a gift idea that's simple and affordable, try making something together. It doesn't have to be complicated or take up all of your time--in fact, it could even be something that only takes one afternoon.

Here are some ideas:

  • Decorating an old frame with photos from throughout the years (or just one photo) is a sentimental way to show how much you care about each other and commemorate this milestone in your lives together.

  • If you're crafty, try making some homemade soap together! This makes a great gift and can also help bring out some creativity in both of you while being fun simultaneously!

Create a handmade gift basket with your partner.

A gift basket is an excellent option because it's easy to create, and you can do it together. It also allows you to include a variety of items that reflect your partner's interests, whether they're into wine or sports, or gardening. You may want to make this gift a surprise by wrapping the basket in paper and putting it under the tree on Christmas Eve--or any other time of year, for that matter!

Create a scrapbook or photo album together.

How to make a scrapbook:

  • Choose your materials. You can use anything from old magazines and newspapers to photographs, postcards, and tickets from fun outings you've had together. Scrapbooks don't have to be elaborate--they can be as simple as one sheet of colored construction paper folded into thirds with some photos taped onto it. If you want something more advanced, though (and if you have the time), consider making your pages by cutting shapes out of colored cardstock or using rubber stamps on white paper that has been cut into squares or rectangles (these are called "die-cuts"). Plenty of other options exist, such as stickers, ribbons, and glitter glue! The sky is the limit when it comes down to it, so have fun with it!

  • Organize your pages into categories based on what events occurred during that time period - this could mean separating them by month/year or even decade if necessary, depending on how long ago things happened - but don't forget about including memories from before too because those might be just as important later down the line when looking back at everything again.


Make a collage of photos from the past five years of your relationship.

A collage is a great way to document your relationship and can be made from photos, art supplies, or other materials. You can use it as a gift for your partner or as a gift for yourself.

If you want to make one for someone else, find some old magazines or newspapers--whatever feels suitable for the person you're making it for. Cut out pictures that represent milestones in your relationship (first date, first kiss) and arrange them on top of each other so they overlap each other slightly. If there are words in the picture (like "happy anniversary"), cut them out separately so they'll stand out more when pasted onto another piece of paper underneath everything else! Use a glue stick or double-sided tape on both sides of each piece before attaching them together with scissors at an angle so that all sides are exposed equally when viewed straight on instead of sideways like mine were here...

Get creative this year, and come up with 5th-anniversary gifts you can create together!

You'll be surprised at how much fun you can have coming up with 5th-anniversary gifts you can create together. You don't have to be Picasso or Van Gogh--you need to have a creative mind and time on your hands (and maybe a little money in your budget).

Here are some ideas:

  • Get crafty! You can make everything from custom pillows to homemade candles or home decor pieces like stained glass windows. The possibilities are endless!

  • Take a new hobby together, such as cooking classes or photography lessons. It's always fun learning something new with the one you love!

  • Try something out of the ordinary, like rock climbing lessons at the local indoor gym or taking an improv comedy class together (you'll learn valuable skills while having fun!).

Whatever fifth-anniversary gift ideas come up during this process will be worth celebrating when all is said and done!
