A 50th wedding anniversary represents a very singular and significant milestone in a couple's lives and should be celebrated. Whether you are the blessed couple who wants to relish this milestone occasion or a friend who wants to make the event more special, there are many 50th anniversary gifts that will do the trick.
Enjoy a second honeymoon
One of the most romantic and greatest gifts for your spouse would be to arrange a second honeymoon to commemorate 50 years of marriage. Recreating a honeymoon getaway is a great gift to commemorate their fifty years of marriage. Inform the hotel staff that the reservations are meant as a golden anniversary gift, so they can help you plan their stay. You may even find that some staff members will gladly help to make arrangements and prepare activities that will make the couple's stay an especially memorable and romantic one.
Engraved golden rings
Historically, gold marks the 50th wedding anniversary and gifts may include jewelry. To add a more personal and romantic touch, engrave a short message, the couple's names or their wedding date onto the gift.
An anniversary plate engraved with special names and dates
Another gift, and somewhat elegant, is a fine bone china plate which will have a special personal engraving to your parents. An engraved photograph of the couple is an option they will surely appreciate.
A small book containing pictures and clippings pertaining to memorable events
Collect all the things pertaining to your marriage including letters, mementos and other items and paste them in a scrap book (so as to have a flashback of last 50 golden years.) You can also include pictures of the couple's children and grandchildren, the couple's accomplishments, lyrics to songs they love and many other bits and pieces which made their 50 years of the marriage more special and unique.
An artist's rendition of the two
A great personalized gift to buy is a painting. Find a special photograph that features the couple together, like one from their wedding, and then find a good portrait artist who can turn the photograph into a beautiful painting. Couples will adore having an old photo transformed into an exquisite painting.
Record unique messages
Another unique gift idea with a personalized touch is a CD that records heartfelt messages for the couple. A fun way to make your 50th anniversary memorable is to give your loved one a recorded message from family and friends.
Couples should be proud and happy to commemorate their 50th year anniversary in any special way that they can.
