well, the traditional 5 yr wedding gift is wood and modern's silverware. maybe paint an unfinished wood box and line it with green felt for his poker stuff or to hold watches, etc.? sorry not many ideas....

The poker box idea is great.  For my hubby with a sweet tooth, I found an old wooden chemistry set box and filled all the little cubbies with his favorite candies as a 5th anniversary gift.  Wood opens up so many possibilities:  a little wooden change holder, a picture frame, a little chest filled with mementos, a coat rack of some kind, a remote control caddy...
I know this isn't exactly romantic (but men do tend to perceive things a little differently), but you could take a picture of some "cowgirl" clothes with cards spilled over them on your bedroom floor, put it in a lovingly crafted picture frame and attach a card challenging him to a game of "Texas Hold 'Em."

its not necc. crafty for you to do.. but it kind of a craft/hobby for your hubby.. I'm getting my husband this microbrewery kit for his birthday in may

Another idea is to maybe make a cool poker table cover... the poker box idea dee521 mentioned sounds cool too.  I got my hubby a jack daniel's poker tin that had compartments for the cards, chips, and dealer buttons.. it would be pretty easy to make something like that in wood.
