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 Maui!
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 Maui. 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:
“Air Maui helped me make my parents surprise 30th wedding anniversary special, amazing, and unforgettable! They were completely helpful and went over and beyond to help me surprise my parents and give them the best experience! If I could give 10 out of 5 stars I would! AMAZING SERVICE!” - lkastern
“My husband and I did this flight for our 5 year anniversary - it was a blast. The views of the waterfalls were incredible. Something so special about seeing the islands from up above. This was my first helicopter ride and we did doors-off - go big or go home! We loved it. Definitely worth purchasing the video of your personal flight afterwards - we have watched it twice since our flight last month!“ - K-Face2018
“My wife and I celebrated our 25 year anniversary on Maui in style aboard Air Maui. We took the full island trip and were in awe of Maui's beauty and diverse landscapes and climate zones. Would do this again in a heartbeat!“ - Nate B
