Celebrating Five Years Of Love? Forego Traditional Wood Gifts with the Wright® Brand #AnniversaryBacon Program

Five-year anniversary couples deserve the greatest wood gift of all — a thick slab of real wood smoked bacon

SPRINGDALE, Ark. – June 8, 2021 – The traditional five-year anniversary gift is wood, symbolizing wisdom, strength and time with typical gifts including salt and pepper mills or candy or trinket dishes - thoughtful gifts, but maybe not the most loved items. This year, the team at Wright® Brand wants to help couples celebrating five years of love the Wright way by giving the gift many would prefer: a delicious slab of real wood smoked bacon with the #AnniversaryBacon program. Smoked over real wood for an intense, hearty flavor, Wright® Brand bacon will make you fall in love at first bite.

Say ‘I Love You’ with Something Delicious

Now, more than ever, people are looking to what matters most in life—love, family and cherished memories. The #AnniversaryBacon program celebrates just that, and what better way to keep the spark alive than a smoky slab of bacon?

“Let’s be honest, most traditional anniversary gifts end up collecting dust and eventually get hidden in a closet,” said Derek Jackson, brand manager, Wright Brand. “To honor the wood tradition in a fun and delicious way, we’re celebrating with couples by gifting real, smoked bacon. It’s the perfect gift to keep love aglow.”
