We’re not saying that there’s anything wrong with flowers and chocolate but let’s help you find 25 year wedding anniversary gifts that are a little more unusual. The modern and traditional anniversary theme is silver, so you’re going to be spoilt for choice, whatever kind of gifts you choose to exchange. However, there is no need to feel obliged to follow this theme, unless of course you’re sure that your partner would prefer a gift made of silver.
We’re pretty sure you won’t have a problem finding a gift made of silver. There are a wide variety of options both in your local store and online. However, the wide variety of options can mean you’re a little confused about where to start looking.
As with any kind of gift, for whatever occasion, the most important factor is that it’s given with love, and a lot of thought has gone into the choosing. For the lady in your life the value of the gift is in the emotion that comes with it, not the cost. Which could mean you’re relieved because you don’t have to spend a fortune, or a little confused because you’re not sure what is going to be perfect. Don’t fret because we’re about to give you some helpful suggestions so keep reading.
25 year wedding anniversary gifts for the ladies
Twenty five years of married life is a significant milestone so all the more reason to find your wife a 25th wedding anniversary present you know she’ll love.
A gift set of silver jewellery – Why not give your wife a silver pendant and necklace together with matching earrings and a bracelet? Have a look at the items she already owns and buy something that’s complementary, or your gift might just stay at the bottom of her trinket box, never to be worn. There are a number of different options to choose from including an infinity pendant, charm bracelet, silver heart locket, or silver heart-shaped earrings.
A silver jewellery box – This will be perfect for all her precious items of jewellery, especially all those beautiful gifts she’s received from you. Add a touch of personalization in the form of a loving message and she’s going to be proud to place it on her dressing table.
If you’d prefer to move away from the recognised anniversary theme here are some more suggestions:
25 red roses – As this is your twenty fifth anniversary 25 blooms should be the order of the day.
A photo album filled with 25 years of memories – You can find plenty of albums that incorporate the silver theme if you want your gift to be memorable.
A gourmet dinner for two – Time to test your culinary skills with some home made dishes. However, if you feel you’re not up to the challenge book your own personal chef for the evening.
25 gifts for 25 years – Rather than trouble yourself over one truly memorable gift, find 25 smaller ones that will be just as precious.

Time to give your husband a gift he’ll never forget. Jewellery, photo frames, cuff links and hip flasks are perfect gifts for such an occasion but let’s give you a few more.
A fortune cookie that’s silver plated – A great way to let your husband know of your continued commitment to the marriage, and it can include a message of your choice. Alternatively you can let the company who makes the gift decide on the message if you’re feeling a little lost for words.
A silver-plated coffee scoop – If your husband loves a freshly ground cup of coffee to start his day, then this gift will be perfect. Everytime he makes a cup of coffee he’ll be reminded of your special day.
Engraved silver ring – Engraved with a message of your choice, you can pick from a number of different styles depending on his taste.
Silver pocket watch – Much more stylish and elegant than a wristwatch that will remind him of the good old days.
Stainless steel pocket knife – A pocket knife will come in handy on many different occasions and will be considered far more valuable if given as a 25 year anniversary gift.
Personalized corkscrew – This is a very practical gift for your husband and will be a constant reminder of your anniversary. It will also mean that there’s no scrabbling around looking for something to open your celebratory bottle of champagne.
