50th Anniversary Gift Ideas

A 50th wedding anniversary gift commemorates a milestone most married couples wish to reach. What can you possibly give a couple after 50 years of marriage? The most meaningful wedding anniversary gift is one that comes from the heart: to express your love and appreciation towards all that they mean to you, how their staying married through the thick and thin of life has influenced you, to tell about the warm and loving memories you shared with them throughout the years.

The 50th anniversary is commemorated by gold and the flower is violet. A gift certainly doesn't have to be gold, wrap a gift in gold paper or paper decorated with violets.

50th anniversary gift ideas for the couple

Keepsake personalized anniversary gifts, such as a photo quilt or pillow

Monthly or quarterly lo-carb, dietetic or fruit gift baskets

Restore their wedding photo and place in a gold frame

Have a painting or caricature made out of their wedding photo

As they probably don't cook for themselves as much, gift certificates to restaurants would be appreciated

A gift of theater or concert subscription tickets. Make them a patron with VIP privileges

The children can create a 50th anniversary keepsake journal gift. Ask family and friends to write a paragraph or two to share a memory with their parents. Or ask for a photo with the couple that the children don't have and write a caption about it

Instead of a guest book, buy a music box and fill it with messages of love written on gold or handmade paper from family and friends

Are they up for a cruise? Take them on a weekend or week long cruise. They probably will enjoy sharing this vacation with others

What could help them personally? Can you lease a car for

them? Pay for a kitchen or other home renovation?

Do they golf? Pay for private lessons or a VIP membership at their favorite club. Buy two clubs, have them engraved and then gold plated

What hobbies do they enjoy? Give them gift certificates to their favorite craft or hobby store.

Buy tickets to a favorite event and pay for their lodging and food expenses

Do they volunteer or have a favorite charity? Contribute to their favorite organization. Find out if a plaque or some other special mention can be given in their name

The best 50th anniversary gift for the couple is one that helps them to enjoy life more. Many couples don't even want to receive gifts. 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!
