1st Anniversary: Paper
The traditional gift for a first anniversary is paper... it might not sound exciting at first, but this could be something like a photobook, framed picture, tickets to a fun tour, show, or trip, artwork, or a heartfelt card or love note. It could even be tickets for a tour with Air Kauai!
5th Anniversary: Wood
For your fifth anniversary the traditional gift is something made from wood. Some ideas include a nice wooden frame, a personalized wooden box or clock, wooden wall art, or a nice set of wooden cutting boards, bowls, serving trays, or other unique kitchen items. You could also use a wooden box as wrapping for any gift!
10th Anniversary: Tin
Tin gifts might seem a little hard to come by, but if you want to stick with the tradition, you can put a variety of different fun gifts inside of cute gift tins such as spa items or a high-end shaving kit, yummy chocolates to pair with a nice bottle of wine, or a nice set of teas.
15th Anniversary: Crystal
Some crystal gift ideas include a crystal vase, decanter, or glasses, jewelry such as a watch, earrings, or necklace, or a crystal picture frame. You can get any of these engraved to add a personal touch.
20th Anniversary: China
The obvious here would be a new set of China dishes. You could also buy a nice set of china for tea or coffee. You could also purchase a China vase or other decorative piece made from China.
25th Anniversary: Silver
For your 25th anniversary the traditional gift is silver. Jewelry is an obvious go-to but some other options are a silver coffee service, an antique set of silverware, jewelry box, or a silver picture frame.
50th Anniversary: Gold
When you make it to that 50th anniversary, the traditional gift is gold. Again, your first thought might be jewelry, but some other options include artwork, dishes, or even food or drink items such as chocolate covered strawberries or truffles (yes, they make edible gold leaf!)
60th & 75th Anniversary: Diamond
If you are celebrating your 60th or 75th wedding anniversary you deserve a diamond! The most obvious place to put it is jewelry but there are a lot of choices such as rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, or watches. You can also add some fun by getting a colored diamond such as a blue, pink, purple, or red diamond or find a unique antique piece.
No matter what anniversary you are celebrating, if you want to surprise your spouse with a great gift this anniversary, give them a tour with Air Kauai. We offer a variety of tours that are sure to please such as the island’s only doors off tour and two exclusive landing tours. Here is what some of our guests have to say about spending their anniversary with us:
“We got to sit in the front two seats next to the pilot which gave absolutely breathtaking views. Our pilot took us to incredible spots that most visitors would never get to see, all from a unique vantage point. He had a great soundtrack playing in our headsets and gave us informative background on what we were seeing. He made sure that passengers on each side of the helicopter get a chance to see everything. The lack of doors on the helicopter gave perfect opportunities for photos without having to take them through a window. They are simply stunning!” - Chad
“Great experience! Was about to cry when I saw this landscape. Our pilot was really cool and the flight was like a rollercoaster" - Tim
“Had a fantastic flight and learned a ton about Kauai from our pilot. Would definitely do it again and would recommend it to anyone. The doors off flight was scary at first but we got used to it and loved the thrill. So beautiful and amazing!!“ - Jason Reathaford
