1st Anniversary: Paper
The traditional gift for a first anniversary is something made from 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.
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 to hold any gift of your choosing.
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 6oth 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.

We have had many couples choose to celebrate their anniversaries with us over the years. Here is what some of our guests have to say about their experiences:
“Surprise 25th Wedding Anniversary – My husband surprised me with a trip to Vegas. Then another surprise on day two was a helicopter ride! I can’t put into words our experiences. Several minutes into the ride I was moved to tears. The beauty was breathtaking. Mad Dog, Mike Davis made this even more special. His knowledge and compassion for what he does is a gift. The entire staff was outstanding! This is something you should add to your bucket list! Well done and with class!” – Patricia H
“My husband and I planned this trip for our 12 year anniversary. It was BY FAR the most memorable experience we have had!! Our helicopter was piloted by Mike “Mad Dog” Davis. He was AWESOME. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. The sights are indescribable. It is most definitely something to put at the top of your bucket list. We were treated like family… not like just another customer. Bring a camera for pictures once you land for the picnic but enjoy the sights first hand during flight. You can purchase the video and picture package at the end. It is inexpensive and well worth the money. Thanks to ALL the staff for making us feel welcome and providing and experience we will never forget!!“ – Shelly B
“Anniversary trip – Amazing experience! The customer service was impeccable! Our pilot Christie was super fun and very knowledgeable about the area we visited. I would never go any other way to experience the Grand Canyon but with Serenity Helicopters.“ – opheikensamber
“Dinner in the Grand Canyon – The most amazing thing we have done – When we first started planning out first ever holiday to the USA I saw this on TripAdvisor and thought it would be a great way to celebrate our 10th anniversary. I could not have been more right from the fantastic van ride to the Boulder City airport from our motel to the staff that booked us in with pre flight drinks and snacks and then to our pilot Jim who was knowledgeable funny and made the trip a fantastic thing to remember. We had two other couples in the helicopter with us and we all came back with one word to sum it up WOW. In summary life is short fill it with memories like this as words cannot describe how great it was.“ – Rohan B
