50th Anniversary Gift Ideas

Aug 18, 2007
A 50th anniversary is such an accomplishment it has been given the name 'the golden year' and quite rightly so! Spending half a century with someone you love is a massive achievement, over fifty years of marriage you have probably had ups and downs, good times and bad yet your love for each other has held you together for the great length of time.

Gold symbolises optimism and wealth as well as being a strong resistant substance than is resistant to erosion. Gold is the perfect symbol for a 50th anniversary and it resembles your relationship in terms of strength.

In addition to gold the 50th wedding anniversary flower is violet, when choosing your 50th wedding anniversary gifts consider wrapping it in gold or violet paper to keep in with the theme.

If you are looking for a 50th anniversary gift for a couple it would be wise to remember that they have been together for 50 years, this usually means that the couple will not need household items so try to consider a gift that will help them enjoy life rather than something they may need. You could even give them a gift of your time, tell them to take a day off while you run errands for them.

One of the most popular 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas is coupons for the couple's favourite restaurant giving them an evening out with out having to worry about the cost.

If the gift you are looking for is for your parents then having a family portrait done will always bring a tear to the eye, try to have as many close family members there as possible and also include the couple in question. Do not let them see the final picture until you have had it framed in a gold frame to keep with the theme and are presenting them the gift on their anniversary.

Over 50 years of marriage most couples will have a huge selection of photographs of all the experiences they have shared, a really thoughtful gift would be a scrapbook showing these memories in detail, you will need to begin such a project well in advance as these can take some time to create however well worth the time and effort invested.

Because the symbol for fifty years of marriage is gold finding a gift for your husband or wife is considerably easy as there are so many gift ideas available that contain gold.

50th anniversary gift ideas for your husband or wife could include

- Gold jewelry, rings, watches, lockets, necklaces, tie pins

- Gold picture frames

It is always worth setting yourself a budget when looking for gifts that contain gold as you could find yourself spending a considerable amount of money.
