Don’t you remember when you were thirty-five years old? Perhaps you were chasing around kids in diapers or settling into your home and career, your spouse by your side. That may seem like ages ago. After thirty-five years with your spouse, the two of you have probably been through a lot. Moments of happiness, and sadness, and pure joy!
A commitment as strong and as loving as yours deserves to be honored. You don’t need to throw a big party or print an announcement in the paper (though you totally could if you want to). Giving one another a sweet and sentimental 35th anniversary gift is just as romantic.
Show each other how much you still care with these funny, thoughtful, and alluring gifts that will help you keep the passion alive at anniversary 35 (and beyond)!
What Are the Traditional & Modern 35th Anniversary Gifts?
Both traditional and modern gifts are used to symbolize the emotions and characteristics that come with 35 years of wedded bliss. Traditionally, coral was used to celebrate this milestone anniversary. Coral takes quite a long time to reach fruition and requires a delicately balanced ecosystem to do so, similar to a lasting marriage. Additionally, coral represents both protection and healing, wonderful characteristics for a union to have.
But we don’t suggest pilfering the oceans for any of this very precious resource. Thankfully, there are a lot of coral-themed, colored, and even true coral gifts you can choose from!
The modern 35th anniversary gift is equally as unique – jade. Its striking green hue is almost directly opposite the vibrant orangey-pinks of coral, yet it is every bit as beautiful. Jade is believed to represent love, good fortune, and wisdom; very fitting for a marriage. The mineral has been highly prized for centuries and makes an impressive gift, whether you choose an actual jade item or something that is jade-hued.
While there aren’t any specific flowers associated with the 35th wedding anniversary, we’re sure there are tons of arrangements with shades of jade and coral. If you wanted to really go all out and spoil one another, you could opt for a gift that includes the traditional 35th anniversary gem: the emerald.
