Celebrating 50 years of wedded bliss is undoubtedly a feat, but finding the perfect gift for such a momentous occasion can prove to be a greater challenge. At this point, you may feel as if you’ve already exhausted all of your options. The good news is that a couple’s 50th anniversary is the “Gold anniversary,” so finding the right 50th wedding anniversary gifts may not be as difficult as it may seem. Below are some ideas to help you get started.
Seeing as gold is the theme of a couple’s 50th wedding anniversary, gold jewelry is an obvious choice. Consider your spouse’s taste and their current jewelry collection. An engraved piece is a beautiful choice and provides you with a chance to include a special message to your loved one. An inscription with the date of your wedding or the phrase “Forever Yours” is sure to touch your spouse’s heart. A gold eternity ring is also another great option and symbolizes the undying love the two of you share.
Gold Framed Photo
A framed wedding photo from your special day is a beautiful choice. Accompany the photo with a special personalized message that includes your names and wedding date. A poem or heartfelt love letter are excellent choices. For husbands that are looking for something extra special, this gift choice is sure to make her heart melt and is one that is easy to find in a pinch.
World Traveler Map
Throughout your many years together, you have created so many memories and seen so many things. If you and your spouse have spent time traveling the world, presenting your loved one with a world traveler map is a great way to keep those special memories fresh in your hearts and minds. There are personalized maps that allow you to add your own special message. Most maps also come with pins and flags so you can mark off all of the fun places the two of you have explored together.
Personalized Gold Cuff Links
This gift option is especially for him. Personalized gold cuff links are always a welcomed choice and any man will appreciate this thoughtful gesture. Monogrammed cuff links are a classic choice, but you can also engrave your wedding date or your initials for a romantic touch. Solid gold or gold with hand painted black enamel are great choices. If your budget allows, you can also opt for cuff links with diamond accents.
Family Tree Photo Collage
The celebration of your 50th anniversary is also a celebration of the family you created. A family tree photo collage is a lovely way to reflect on the life that the two of you have built together. This is an option that may require a bit of work to find and may require that you seek out an artist to create the frame for you. The end result will be well worth the cost, especially if you can customize the frame to include your own message, names and/or wedding date.
