Traditional 43rd Anniversary gift theme
You and your spouse have spent so much time together and know each other inside and out, and as the 43rd year wedding anniversary does not have a traditional material or symbol connected to it, the gift buying process is up to you but fear not we have a good selection to give you some ideas.
Appropriate Flowers for the 43rd Anniversary
There are usually flowers that are associated with wedding anniversaries but not the 43rd. However, if your wife loves flowers or has a certain favorite then don’t hesitate to buy her a beautiful bunch of red roses or pink lilies as they will really light up her face.
All women love to receive flowers and even though the 43rd wedding anniversary doesn’t have any connected to the date buying your wife some lovely flowers will go a long way to show your appreciation for her.
43rd Anniversary Gemstone gifts
Unlike other wedding anniversary gifts the 43rd year doesn’t have any gemstones connected to it whereas the 40th anniversary has ruby as its theme, it does mean you can simply have free reign to buy whatever types of jewelry, such as necklaces, earrings, rings or bracelets as you like. Buying her some jewelry for the wedding anniversary gift is something that she will treasure forever and every time she wears it, it can be a memory of your special day.
Modern 43rd Anniversary Gifts
For the modern gift theme you really have a great opportunity as Travel is the Theme.
This is a great year to plan a trip together. You can go somewhere that you’ve never been or travel to a place where you’ve been before but haven’t seen it in years.
If one or both of you loves history, perhaps take a trip to an historic site like Williamsburg or Gettysburg. If nature is more your style, find out about the different parks and forests in your state.
Perhaps you could class it as a second honeymoon if you’ve never had one. You can also plan a trip together that’s just for the two of you. This is a great way to build your relationship and have some fun at the same time.
The theme of travel for this year is there to get you out and about. If you’re short on time, a weekend getaway can be just as fun as a longer trip.
If you’re looking for something more adventurous, consider taking a vacation with your family or friends.
Perhaps you don’t have much time off from work, take a few days off and go somewhere. It doesn’t have to be a faraway place; you can go to another state or even just drive around your own town and see it with fresh eyes.
