  • Jewelry or keepsake box
  • Wood picture frame with a wedding photo in it

6th wedding anniversary gifts

Consider giving Calla Lillies (the 6th anniversary flower) instead of, or in addition to, the above mentioned gift ideas. Attach a pack of bulbs
to the top of your present, buy potted or fresh
cut flowers, or surprise your spouse by planting them in one of your garden beds. Useful Tip: Calla Lillies should be planted in frost free areas...so, if you live in a colder climate, you will have to dig
the bulbs up in the fall.

Still can't decide what to give for your anniversary? Stick with a traditional favorite--jewelry! The gemstones associated with the 6th year are Amethyst (Alternate: Turquoise). You can find these gems in necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, pins, tie tacs, and cuff links.
