This year I decided we’d just get something for our property as an ‘ours’ gift. The tree I wanted wasn’t available so we got a big butterfly bush. Conveniently for you, year 5 is the wood anniversary, so this idea works well if you have land. Or even an indoor fruit tree if there is a lot of light. A really nice box if that’s something he’d use, a piece of wooden furniture, etc. I think I’d find wood to be the easiest anniversary now 😛

alternatively a weekend away would be great too, even if it’s just spoiling yourselves somewhere nearby. 

ETA just realized it’s not a wedding anniversary but who cares? Lol

Every year I make my fiance a photo book of all our photos from that year. We also go out for dinner to the restaurant where we had our first date. Otherwise I think weekends away are great or tickets to a show, concert or sporting event.

I got for my bf experience anniversary gift this year. A helicopter lesson with the flight over our city. He booked vacation to Carribean for us as a gift, we are going in December. 

Last year I got us couple’s massage in SPA and we went to our favorite restaurant.

Some ideas:

A tree or plant(s) as pp suggested 

A weekend away

Surprise dinner out somewhere special (don’t tell him where you’re going)

A local event or destination event (concert, comedian, sporting, etc)

Custom monogrammed leather luggage tag/travel set 

An experience in a special interest category like the helicopter lesson above.  One tailored to your FH’s interest.

An experience for you to do together, cooking lesson, spa, a historical/photography/culinary,nature etc. tour.

I really like “experience” gifts too — especially since my husband usually buys stuff he wants on his own.  I have rented him a sports car for a day, given him a flying lesson, and we have taken a cooking class together.  He seemed to really like these gifts!
