Silver is the material traditionally used to represent 25 years of married life.

2. Other jewelry
Following on from the silver idea, any jewelry is going to be a good bet for a 25 wedding anniversary gift for your Wife as long as it’s according to her tastes.
Cashmere is always a luxury gift worthy of giving to someone you’ve loved for 25 years. Just don’t go near the cashmere if your wife is vegan though.
Is there a tech item that your wife is waiting to buy, perhaps its an Ipad, a new phone, speakers or a Bluetooth headset, these are all great ideas for a 25th wedding anniversary gift although they won’t last forever, whereas a piece of jewelry will.

25th Wedding anniversary gifts for your husband
1. Silver jewelry
We appreciate that not all men like to wear jewelry, but since this is the traditional gift for a 25th wedding anniversary, it’s well worth considering.
Maybe your husband would love a silver watch if your budget stretches to it, a chain or even a silver keyring.
2. The latest gadget
Most men have a list of gadgets they want to try out.
So why not surprise him with one of the gadgets that he’d like but probably would never buy for himself.
It’s a great way to show that you listen to him and that you care.
3. An adventure experience
This is a great 25th wedding anniversary gift idea for your husband especially if he has something that he’d like to try but never does, or if he’s an adrenaline junkie.
4. A pampering experience
Is your husband more of the new age sort?
If he is, why not treat him to a men’s grooming day where he has facials, shaves, haircuts, massages.
You can either do this together or treat him to one which is explicitly focused on tending to men. You might need to consider getting him and a friend the male-specific treat though so he’s on his own during the experience.
