Celebrating Your Forty-fifth Anniversary

Celebrating forty-five years together is a remarkable accomplishment. Who would have thought when you first met and fell in love that you would be celebrating a lifetime together? By now, you have likely spent more time living together than you spent living without your partner. You have found what some folks spend their whole life searching for and never find – a soulmate.

Like in the fortieth anniversary symbols list, there’s not a lot of gift category choices for the forty-fifth anniversary. The traditional, modern and gemstone symbols for the forty-fifth anniversary are all sapphire. Hence, the forty-fifth year celebration is often called a sapphire anniversary. There is no flower anniversary symbol, either.

Although the keeper of the lists did not include a specific flower for your forty-fifth anniversary, it’s not an excuse for not sending flowers to your significant other on your anniversary. Send an anniversary flower arrangement easily and conveniently by ordering online from 1-800-Flowers or from FTD.

Sapphire Gift Suggestions

Sapphires come in many forms and mineral categories. For example, when it comes across as a red mineral, it is categorized as ruby. A rare pink sapphire, on the other hand, is a padparadscha. The colors are determined by trace amounts of elements such as iron, titanium, or chromium. Sapphires can come in blue, yellow, pink, purple, orange, or green. The most valuable sapphire is the cornflower blue sapphire.

Sapphires have a long and colorful (no pun intended) history. They are believed to have healing and calming properties and are said to symbolize sincerity and faithfulness. They say the Ten Commandments were written on a sapphire tablet, this is why the tablets are so strong that nothing could break the stone. The ancient Persians believed that the sky was colored by the reflection from a giant sapphire that the earth sat on. Sapphires have been the jewel of choice for royalty from ancient times, and some modern-day royalties have received sapphire engagement rings.

Basically, your sapphire gem choices are limited to jewelry. You need to think outside of the box if sapphire jewelry is not what you want to give your special someone as an anniversary present.

There is a gin called Bombay Sapphire. If you and your partner are martini lovers, why not get a bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin, a martini shaker and beautiful new martini glasses. Enjoy an evening in front of the fire drinking your sapphire gift. If partying out is more your style, head for the nearest martini bar and order your Bombay Sapphire gin martinis.

Cat’s Eye Gift Suggestions

Cat’s eye and tiger’s eye are the common names for cymophane and when cut and polished, the pattern in the stone forms a band of light. This phenomenon called chatoyancy reminds one of a cat’s eye. The cat’s eye or tiger’s eye gemstone is a beautiful, golden-brown stone that is believed to give the wearer of the stone insight and luck, and protects the wearer from evil.

There are some really striking cat’s eye pendants and rings from Mineral Miners which would make an interesting forty-fifth anniversary gift for your partner. Make sure when you wrap the cat’s eye gift, you include a description of the different beliefs that the cat’s eye will bring to the wearer. This makes for a special and intimate dedication for your gift.

You can also find cat’s eye eggs online which are valued as feng shui tools to clear negative energy and increase positive energy. These eggs are also a favorite of those who meditate. To see a selection of cat’s eye eggs, check out the Phoenix Orion website.
