40th Anniversary Gifts - Ruby

Red is an appropriate colour to base gifts around - try buying her a red dress, or cooking him a red meal - use tomatoes, radiccio, steak or a tomato-based sauce for pasta, and of course strawberries for dessert.

Ruby jewellery is always an acceptable gift for her, and perhaps ruby port might be better appreciated for him.

Plants with ruby in the name, or on the red theme, are also a good idea.
