10 of The Best 6 Year Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas for the Couple
Piece of Space – Real Iron Meteorite or Shooting Star Set
Are you looking for a terrific way to help the happy couple celebrate their 6th wedding anniversary? Why don’t you get them a Piece of Space? You can give them a piece of a shooting star (perfect for a couple to wish upon together). It is made of iron meteorite, which fits in with this wedding anniversary theme. The meteorite measures 8 – 12 mm. These meteorites are from an impact that happened 5,000 years ago in Campo del Cielo in Argentina.
You will also get an authentic certificate. This gift is imported from Germany. This is a unique and wonderful gift to give to a couple – it is certainly not a present that they will be getting from anyone else! Let them know just how special you think their marriage is.

Help the couple celebrate by buying them a piece of modern art for their anniversary. The Recycled Auto Parts Romantic Metal Sculpture is metallic colored and made of iron. The sculpture measures 4.7 inches in height by 3.9 inches in width by 4.7 inches in depth.
The sculpture shows a couple embracing on a bench. It is romantic, pretty, and modern. This handmade metal sculpture is called “Park Bench Sweethearts.” It is handcrafted with recycled auto parts, which is so stylish and cool – they will love this fact when they learn it and see how beautiful it is!

This is an inexpensive present, but sometimes it is the thoughtful or sentimental gifts that mean the most. By giving this couple these romantic love keys, you are telling them that you are inspired by their rock-solid loving and romantic partnership.
6th Anniversary Romantic Iron Horseshoe Gift
The 6th Anniversary Romantic Iron Horseshoe Gift is hand-forged iron, and it is customizable.

This is an excellent gift if you are looking for a non-traditional but beautiful piece of artwork made of iron to help the couple celebrate their 6th wedding anniversary.
Love Language Card Game
If you are looking for something a little bit different to get the couple, you can get them the Love Language Card Game. This is a game all about communication and getting to know one another better. I know this seems surprising, but whether a couple has been together for 6 years or 60 years, they can always learn more about each other!
There are 150 questions in this deck of cards split into 5 categories: family, intimacy, couple, individual, and past & future. These cards are a high-quality deck meant to last, so the couple can use them time and time again.
It is super simple to play this game – here is all they have to do:
- Pick a card.
- Take Turns Answering The Questions
- Deepen Their Connection; Strengthen Their Relationship.
Personalized Anniversary Canvas Wall Print
After 6 years of marriage, enough time has passed that they would love a piece of wall art with lyrics from their wedding song. This piece is personalized. You will need to indicate the couple’s first names, the date they got married, the name of the song, the name of the singer or artist. The size that we are showing this is 8 inches by 10 inches, but it is also available in larger sizes. It is also available in 11 x 14, 12 x 16, 16 x 20, 16 x 24, 24 x 36 and 32 x 48.
This Personalize Anniversary Canvas Wall Print is made in the USA and uses artist-quality ultra-thick cotton canvas.

The necklace and bracelet set is made of quality stainless steel and titanium. These are sturdy pieces, built to last a lifetime. The heart pendants are on 22-inch chains and consist of two heart pieces. One is black, the other is silver, and they both say, “I love you.”
The men’s bracelet is 8.5 inches in length x .28 inches in width, and it says “Her King.” The women’s bracelet is 7.28 inches in length and .2 inches in width, and it says “His Queen.”
This is a super cute and romantic gift for a couple. Even if they decide not to wear them, they can artfully display them somewhere in their home to see them daily and be reminded of this anniversary.
Him and Her Towel Hooks For The Bathroom
Sometimes, when it comes to home furnishings, less is more. These Him and Her Towel Hooks For The Bathroom are super cute and would look lovely in any bathroom.

A pair of matching cups are cute; coordinated cups are even better! One of the cups says “Let’s Have Coffee Together…” and the other cup says “For The Rest of Our Live.”
This is so cute and fun! If both of the couples are coffee drinkers, they will love their cups. Any true coffee drinker can never have too many quality coffee cups.
The Let’s Have Coffee Together For The Rest of Our Lives Coffee Mug Set is such an adorable gift. Even if, for some reason, they decide not to use these every day (because they adore them so much they do not want to wear them out), they can totally put these on display somewhere in their home. Some prime spots could be a curio cabinet, the china cabinet, or on the mantel.
Couple Wine Tumbler Set
Our final recommendation for a cute gift for a couple celebrating their 6th wedding anniversary is theCouple Wine Tumbler Set. Wine tumblers are so cute and modern. Gone are the days when people only enjoy wine in glasses with stems. These days, there is almost no glassware or drinkware that is not appropriate for wine. Tumblers are modern and fun, especially these ones!
This set has two tumblers, each holding 12 ounces of wine. One is white and says “His Wifey,” and the other is black and says “Her Hubby.” These tumblers are made of stainless steel and can be used for wine or another liquid of your choice. They will keep cold drinks cold for 9 hours and hot drinks hot for 3 hours.

Beer Chiller Sticks For Bottles
Do you want to give your husband something fun and exciting as an anniversary present? These Beer Chiller Sticks For Bottles are a unique present, and they could be very useful. Suppose the two of you spend a fair amount of time outside, or you have barbeques or other warm-weather parties. In that case, these chiller sticks will help keep the beer cold, and they are also interesting and a conversations starter. Sure, most people use a cooler to keep things warm, but what about once the drinks come out of the cooler and are opened?
These chiller sticks are basically like verticle ice cubes; think of them as whiskey stones for beer bottles. You freeze them for 30 – 50 minutes before needing them. Then you open a beer bottle and take a few sips to make room for the frozen stick. Drop the stick in, and now the beer will remain cold regardless of how warm it is outside. Unlike ice, this will not change the taste or consistency of the beer.
Galvanized Iron Beer Steins and Shot Glasses
Are you looking for something to meet the 6th wedding anniversary of iron but also want it to be something that your husband will actually use? If he likes beer or liquor, you could get him the Galvanizer Iron Beer Steins and Shot Glasses. This is a set of 2 beer steins and 2 shot glasses, so he can use them with you or a buddy. These steins and shot glasses are impact-resistant and unbreakable, so even when accidents occur, these will be with him for life!
This set has a stunning aesthetic and will look great on any bar or displayed wherever your husband makes his drinks. Your husband will love the industrial-chic look and, of course, your thoughtfulness of picking out an extraordinary iron gift as an anniversary present. The steins hold 16 ounces of liquid, and the shot glasses hold 3.5 ounces of liquid.
Premium Whiskey Stones Gift
Suppose you like the idea of an alcohol-themed gift, but you are looking for something more refined or elegant. In that case, you might be interested in this Premium Whiskey Stones Gift. Here is precisely what you will be giving your husband:
- 2 extra-large whiskey glasses – these glasses are 11 ounces in size and feature an elegant design
- 2 extra-large whiskey stones – they are 2.2 inches in diameter, are food-grade stainless steel balls. You can freeze them and put them in drinks without worry that there will be any change in taste.
- 2 Slate Coasters – why worry about your tables and other countertops getting ruined? Put your drink on a stylish coaster.
- 1 Velvet Freezer Pouch – Use this to chill the stones. It will protect the stones from picking up any unwanted odors from the freezer.
- 1 Pair of tongs to grab the stones with.
Railroad Spike Knife
Are you looking for an exciting iron wedding anniversary gift, maybe even something he did not know was a possibility? The Railroad Spike Knife is unique and interesting, and it is also customizable. You can have something short engraved on the head of the railroad spike.

- The color is gray.
- The material is iron.

Gotham Gunmetal Railroad Polished Finish Pocket Watch
If your husband already has a wristwatch he loves or just does not like to wear them, why not get him a pocket watch? This is an excellent pocket watch for your husband to carry on him. Of course, it is also a conversation starter because not everyone has a pocket watch anymore.
The Gotham Gunmetal Railroad Polished Finish Pocket Watch is black and gray and comes with a belt clip. The numbers in the dial are bright, bold, and crisp – making reading the time, including the exact minute or second, super easy.
This pocket watch comes with a deluxe drawstring pouch to store it in, a nice gift box to wrap it in as well as operating instructions and a lifetime limited warranty.
Carrom Super Stick Hockey Table
Sometimes, when we buy a present for someone, it does not have to be elegant, sentimental, or useful (at least not in a mature adult way). If your husband grew up playing bubble hockey, he would undoubtedly love the Carrom Super Stick Hockey Table. This will be a great addition to a game room or a great first piece!
This bubble hockey table is 45.25 inches by 33.75 inches by 47 inches. It weighs 140 pounds. It would help if this is something you would also enjoy doing with him, so he could get a lot of use out of this table.
This is an excellent present for anyone who has or wants to establish a game room in their home, loves hockey, or just loves playing games like bubble hockey whenever they want to.
Dead Sea Minerals Spa Gift Box
Women are not the only people who deserve a lovely spa gift set. Men also need alone time and to learn to focus more on self-care. This gift will give your husband a luxury natural spa bath. Here is what he will receive:

These bracelets have a vintage style and stand out without feeling over the top or gaudy. There are three different styles:

- Two braided bracelets combined together with a magnetic clasp and other metal decorations.
Travel Mixology Bartender Kit
Sometimes in the first several years of a relationship, you may want things in your house but have no room or time to expand. One of these things is a home bar. If your husband likes to entertain or make his own drinks and cocktails, but you do not have the room for a full home bar, this Travel Mixology Bartender Kit is the next best thing.
This is a 24 piece professional bar kit. It comes with tools and accessories such as Boston cocktail tins, a double-sided jigger, cocktail strainers, a julep strainer, a high-end corkscrew, and more.
BBQ Subscription Box
Our final choice for your husband’s 6th-anniversary present is a BBQ Subscription Box. Subscription boxes are a lot of fun – you get something cool in the mail every month. Usually, the boxes have some sort of theme like jewelry, makeup, spa, or in this case – BBQ Items.
In every box, you will receive the following:

10 of the Best 6 Year Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas for Her
Wall Mounted Black Wrought Iron Wine Bottle Storage
If you are looking for an excellent present for your wife made of iron for the 6th wedding anniversary, this Wall Mounted Black Wrought Iron Wine Bottle Storage would be fabulous. We are showing this item in the 9 bottle size, but you can also get one that only holds 4 bottles. This is an excellent modern and minimalist way to store your wine or other alcohol.
Although she will undoubtedly love this present all on its own merit, she may love it even more if you bought new wine bottles of her favorite varieties to fill it too!
If you get the larger mount that holds 9 bottles, the size is 4 inches by 10 inches by 38 inches. If you choose this smaller, the measurements are 4 inches by 14.5 inches by 15 inches.
11 Piece Cast Iron Cookware
Typically, I would not recommend cookware for your wife unless she really and truly loves to cook, but this is an exception. The 6th wedding anniversary has a traditional iron theme, and this gift is a set of cast iron cookware. On top of that, cast iron cookware is usually high quality and allows you to make incredible food. Plus, it is long-lasting. That is why I do recommend the 11 Piece Cast Iron Cookware for a present for this anniversary.
This set includes the following – skillets which are 6 inches, 8 inches, 10 inches, and 12 plus grill pan and lid, griddle, pizza pan, dutch oven pot, and pan rack. She will also get silicone hot handle holders, a pan scraper, and a pan rack organizer.
Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub
Besides iron, the other common theme for this anniversary is sugar. Why not be a little bit creative with this theme and get her a nice sugar scrub. Skincare is an essential part of self-care. Let your wife not that you understand her need to exfoliate while smelling great.
We are showing the Tree Hit Shea Sugar Scrub in pink champagne; however, there are also 3 other scents you can get this in. Those scents are lavender, sugared fantasy, and watermelon. This sugar scrub comes in an 18-ounce container.
Godiva 24 Count Signature Truffles
If you are going to follow the wedding themes for your presents you will want to give sugar, why not give lots and lots of sugar. What sugar present is better than chocolate? Give your wife this Godiva 24 Count Signature Truffles Gift box as a present. It has sugar and chocolate, a variety of truffles, and is undoubtedly fancy enough to give as a gift.
We are showing this truffle box in a 24 count, but there are other sizes you can choose from. You may decide to give your wife a 4 piece, a 12 piece or a 36 piece truffle box. You may want to go smaller for the 4 or 12 counts to only give this as a small additional gift or a way to get sugar into an anniversary present. Of course, if you know she loves truffles or Godiva, you may want to go all out and give her a larger box. After all, your anniversary only comes once a year.
The truffle box features an assortment of white, dark, and milk chocolate truffles. Some of the fillings include caramel, fruit, spiced ganache, and salted caramel.
Romantic Chocolate, Caramel and Crunch Tower
If you want to give your wife a lot of different chocolate and snack choices, you might want to choose this Romantic Chocolate, Caramel and Crunch Tower. This tower is 8.5 inches by 9.25 inches in size. There are 2 pounds of chocolate and snacks in this gift tower. Here is what is included in this chocolate tower:
- 6 ounces of dark chocolate almond bark
- 6 milk chocolate pecan clusters
- 5 ounces of dark chocolate sea salt caramel corn
- 4 assorted chocolate-dipped Oreos
- 3 assorted chocolate dipped graham crackers
- 3 assorted chocolate dipped pretzels
Now that is a wonderfully sweet and scrumptious variety of chocolate treats for your wife to celebrate this anniversary with you. If you are really nice, she might even be willing to share a bite or two with you.
6 Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Our final sugar selection for your wife is these beautiful 6 Chocolate Covered Strawberries. This is a way to give her natures sugar covered in rich chocolate. Plus, it does not hurt that chocolate-covered strawberries can be very romantic!
Besides being a delicious and sensual treat, these strawberries are simply gorgeous. They are covered in white and milt chocolate and decorated to perfection. Your wife will undoubtedly be impressed with how much thought you put into her sugar-themed gift.
Another way to use them is instead of giving them a traditional gift, you can buy them for your anniversary and after dinner or later before bed, you can serve them. She will love the fact that you not only spent the time to buy something so romantic, but you understand that an anniversary is an all-day event, not just a few hours in the evening.
I Love You Necklace and Earring Set
Jewelry is always a welcome present. If you are getting your wife jewelry for a special occasion such as an anniversary, it should be memorable. It could be special because of a specific significance of a piece of jewelry, the theme being incorporated into the present, or because there is something interesting or special about the piece you have chosen. The I Love You Necklace, and Earring Set is special because of its unique style and meaning.
The pendant says “I Love You” in 120 different languages. This is a unique and fun piece of jewelry; there can be absolutely no confusion on what you are trying to tell your wife here.
We are showing this in gold-plated silver, but you can also get it in sterling silver. The pendant and the hearts of the earrings are made of onyx. It even comes with a mini-magnifying glass so your wife can admire every detail of the pendant.
Beach Tote Shoulder Bag
You can always choose to buy your wife something simple and useful. A Beach Tote Shoulder Bag is a great present that your wife can undoubtedly use. The beach bag we are showing is actually a 2 pack. One bag says, “Drink in hand. Toes in sand.” The other bag just simply states, “Hello Summer.”
If you are not sure about these designs, there are actually a total of 34 to choose from – this would include single bags, 2 packs, and 3 packs. Some of the other choices have designs showing anchors, cow print, pineapples, stripes, or tropical leaves.
The bag measures 18 inches by 7 inches by 14 inches. These would be great to carry all the beach essentials, such as flip flops, bikinis, wraps, beach books, towels, sunglasses, and sunscreen.
Even if your wife is not a beach person, these bags are great as overnight bags, office bags, or to keep items in. For instance, if your wife has a hobby like writing, artwork, or knitting, she can easily keep supplies in a beach bag to take with her wherever she goes.
TheraBox Self Care Subscription Box
Subscription boxes are a wonderful present to give to someone. You pick a themed box, and then periodically (usually monthly), they get a box in the mail to match the theme. Usually, the box has sample-sized and full-sized items. It is a surprise what you get in the box, but typically the retail price of the items is more than what you are paying for – sometimes 2 – 3 times more. For instance, the TheraBox Self Care Subscription Box gives the subscriber three times the amount of products that are being paid for.
This is an excellent way to try products you may have never found before or discover what you do and do not like, especially when on a budget. This is a self-care box so what she will get is 1 happiness item and 6 – 8 self-care wellness items.
Wellness items could include skincare products, aromatherapy, bath and body products, and other lifestyle products. Each month has some additional them outside of self-care that the box is designed around. Some of the past monthly packages have been called love yourself, adventure, and ritual.
These boxes are actually curated by therapists to increase one’s happiness while reducing stress. These monthly boxes are all about treating yourself, self-care, and taking the time to relax.
The Tea Time Gift Collection
Gift baskets are gifts too, but unlike a subscription box, this is usually a one-time gift. We have chosen a tea theme for a nice relaxing and comforting present. The size of this gift is 15 inches by 12 inches by 6 inches. The Tea Time Gift Collection come on a breakfast tray (super cute) and include the following items:
- A white ceramic teapot.
- English tea.
- Strawberry preserves.
- Spiced Waffle Cookies.
- Candy Cane Almonds.
- Lemon Cakes.
- Butter Cookies with Sea Salt.
- Milk Chocolate Truffle Balls.
