6th Anniversary Gifts for Him
Iron takes us back to a simpler time, when weapons were forged by hand, men rode in on horses, wrote love letters to their sweethearts, fought dragons (probably) etc...So how cool if your husband going to feel with an awesome iron forged hunting knife? Get it personalized with your anniversary date or his initials, and extra cool points if you can get a really awesome design engraved onto the blade. We don't condone violence at all, but a cool medieval looking weapon is still fun to have at least for show.
2. Iron Weights
So you're husband's a gym rat, it's not a lifestyle we can all agree with (or keep up with...oof...) but you have to give him props for maintaining a healthy lifestyle and looking super cute to boot. Your adorable little gladiator needs a gym at home so he doesn't have to waste the gas to get to the gym across town (and also so you can watch). Get him a set of iron weights! You'll probably have to get them delivered by some stronger people (unless you're a body builder yourself, in which case, you go girl!), but he'll appreciate the convenience of pumping iron at home, and it's something you can appreciate too (wink).
3. Iron Bottle Opener
You could have just any old bottle opener...or, you could have AN IRON FORGED BOTTLE OPENER FOR MANLY MEN...ahem, everyone needs a bottle opener, why shouldn't it be one that can double as a weapon and an offering of romance? This sleek hand crafted iron bottle opener comes pre engraved with "6 years" and a heart on it. It may be the ultimate weapon for cracking a cold one with the boys but that doesn't mean it can't be a sweet sentiment too!
4. A Personalized Iron Skillet
The perfect kitchen decor or cooking tool! It's up to you! Get your hubby a strong iron skillet for cooking up eggs, pan pizza, fried chicken, tortillas and more! Iron skillets are incredibly durable and are essential cooking tools, and with this personalized skillet, your man will feel like the King of the Kitchen! Or it'll at least make a really cool addition to your kitchen walls.
5. Iron Dice
Is your man a collector of dice? A fan of card games? Get him some iron clad personalized dice to add to his collection of cool things! If not for games or gambling, these can easily be used as paper weights for his desk!
If he's a golf aficionado, then a brand new pair of golf clubs are the perfect gift! Golf clubs can get worn and scratched over time, especially if its a weekly hobby of his. So, a shiny brand new set of clubs is the perfect 6th anniversary gift for him! And if golfing is something the two of you do together, then buy a matching set and maybe some new golf clothes too!
