Iron is the traditional sixth anniversary gift material, many believing it represents the power and strength of the marital bond. It’s a poetic sentiment to be sure: Like iron in heat, a strong relationship can endure even the toughest tests. And the first test of year six might just be finding the anniversary gift itself — because for all its durability, iron isn’t exactly the most romantic of substances. But you can still make romantic gifts out of iron. We swear.

Of course, it all depends on how you interpret this anniversary tradition. You can opt for a literal gift, one made of actual iron: Much of the available selection will include home and kitchen items (think wrought iron shelves and cast iron cookware). On the flip side, you can interpret the term a little more creatively, as in, say, a waffle iron or an Iron Man wristwatch. It’s up to you. Either way, if you’re stumped for sixth anniversary ideas, we’ve got suggestions. Scroll on for 24 ways you can mark the milestone this year.’
