Adorn your home with one of your happiest memories – the Family Established block. Personalized to your family name and anniversary year, it makes an excellent wedding, anniversary, or housewarming gift. Every block is hand cut from Douglas Fir, stained with Danish oil, and hand-painted. This small but chunky block fits in perfectly atop a fireplace mantel, living room end table, and kitchen countertop.
The traditional gift given for the fifth wedding anniversary is wood. It represents strength, wisdom, and the solid foundation of a lasting marriage. Like many of our wedding and marriage traditions, it is thought that the gifts for specific anniversaries come from Germany but were popularized by Victorian England. The new tradition became solidly entrenched in American society by the 1920s.
