Whether you’re one half of the lucky couple or you’re looking to buy a 50th wedding anniversary gift for a friend or loved one, we can help. We’ve compiled a detailed guide to the best golden anniversary gifts, plus lots of tips and ideas so you can purchase something that really makes an impact.
50 years of married life with the same person is most definitely an achievement and that’s why it’s referred to as a golden anniversary.
A golden anniversary is a celebration of love’s resilience and diversity, and the celebration surrounding it hails back to the Holy Roman Empire, where husbands would crown their wives with a gold wreath to mark the occasion.
Today gold is considered to be both a traditional and a modern gift for 50th wedding anniversaries – but you can interpret this any way you want. You don’t have to buy gold jewellery or gold mantle clocks to show you care; if you’d prefer to purchase something different like gold candles, champagne wrapped in gold foil or a delicious dessert wine in a golden hue can make marvelous gifts.
And at the end of the day, just remember that there’s truth to the saying “it’s the thought that counts.”
Wedding anniversaries are a beautiful way to celebrate married life together, and they’re also a time for friends and loved ones to celebrate a couple’s love by giving gifts. Knowing where to start can be difficult – depending on what reponse you want your gift to illicit, your approach might be a bit different.
Some wedding anniversary gifts aim to remind a couple of the memories they’ve shared together while others are more about pampering or are simply more suited to the recipient’s interests. No matter who you’re buying a 50th wedding anniversary gift for, we’ve added our very best pointers below.
There’s no point buying a mantle clock or an engraved photo frame if your recipients a) don’t have knick-knacks around their home and b) have a very particular home decor style. A gift like this, while well-intentioned, might find itself in a box in the attic.
Pay attention to their particular style before you purchase anything that is to be put on display in a home. Look out for particular things in their home so that you can get an idea of what would be best to buy them?
There’s no point purchasing a high-end knife set if the couple you’re buying for don’t like to cook. Think about the types of hobbies and leisurely activities they like to engage in and start from there. For example, if they like to entertain, a luxury dinnerware set could be the order of the day.
If they enjoy wine, then a wine subscription or wine hamper would most definitely delight. If you’re buying for a lady, then a perfume or candle set is a safe choice, and for the gents, you could consider a briefcase bag or set of ties or socks to stay on the safe side.
If you’re confident that you know the ins-and-outs of her personal style, then purchasing a bag or a classic piece of jewellery that won’t go out of fashion is a timeless and enduring gift that she can treasure for years to come. If she has very particular taste, then it’s best to play it a little safe. Opt for things like reed infusers, magazine subscriptions, subscription boxes, wedding photographs in beautiful frames, make-up gift boxes and vouchers for pampering experiences like a luxurious spa day.
You could always go down the classic route of purchasing a bottle of bubbles, a box of chocolates and a classic bunch of flowers.
Let’s face it, sometimes buying gifts for guys can be a bit tricky – while there’s always the classic option of socks, a polo shirt and a novelty mug, for a 50th wedding anniversary, you might want to step it up a notch. Think about their day-to-day life and what would be useful – for someone who wears business shirts at work, some cufflinks or a set of ties would be appropriate, and for someone who has an outdoorsy kind of job, you could buy a hardy, waterproof watch that they can wear everyday and in a variety of conditions.
Is your recipient a lover of beer, wine or cider? Then purchase a subcription box or hamper to satisfy their interests.
