Some Anniversary Gifts for the 50th Wedding Anniversary – The Golden Anniversary
Making it fifty years married is pretty amazing. Most people haven’t even lived that long. So, what do you get the couple who’s probably lived together for more years than we’ve been alive? Here’s a few relatively unique ideas for you.
- Family coat of arms plaque, engraved photo album, or family tree chart
- Twisted candlesticks
- Family tree photo frame
- A last minute cruise
- Turn their wedding photo into a big wrapped canvas photo art
- Restaurant gift certificates, since they might not cook for themselves much or would enjoy a night out
- A poem written by one of the children and recited for the anniversary party
Many couples don’t even want gifts at all. Give a gift of your time and help. Make up “Gift of Time” or “Labor of Love” coupons to take them out to their favorite restaurant, make them a home-cooked meal, chauffeur them on a shopping trip, run errands for them, take them to a show or movie, have a local landscaping company take care of their property, have their home repainted. Find out what will make a difference in the quality of their life.
Your love and attention will be the most appreciated 50th wedding anniversary gift you can give your parents or a couple. Make the time for those you love!
Whew… even writing this article was difficult. There’s obviously a lack of creative gifts for 50th anniversaries. I hope this list helps just a little more. Good luck! And congratulate the amazing couple for their long-lasting love for each other! :)
