50th Wedding Anniversary - Anniversary Gift Ideas for Your Spouse, Parents, or Friends

According to recent statistics compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 5 percent of couples have reached their 50th wedding anniversary making this achievement a pinnacle only few couples attain.

Following are unique 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas for those looking for a gift for your spouse, your parents, or your friends.

Anniversary Gift Ideas for Your Spouse

Although the traditional 50th wedding anniversary gift is gold, it may be a romantic gesture to give the traditional first anniversary gift of paper to express that you love your spouse as much as you did on your first wedding anniversary. This could involve: (1) finding an original edition of your spouse's daily newspaper from his or her date of birth or from your wedding date, (2) finding an old postcard from a place that's meaningful for the two of you, such as from your honeymoon destination, where the proposal occurred, or where you first met (get it framed), or (3) finding an old photo of the two of you to frame.

Anniversary Gift Ideas for Your Parents

Many couple's most treasured memories are made of paper, such as photographs, clutch purse,love letters and cards, the deed to their house, etc. Consider capturing paper treasures in a gold-bound album. Ask family members, friends, or even former classmates to contribute to an album to commemorate your parents' 50th wedding anniversary.

Or, if your budget permits, coordinate a vacation in celebration of your parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Host a party in recognition of their special anniversary and decorate in a theme related to the vacation, such as a luau if they were heading to Hawaii. During the celebration, announce the special gift as a surprise for your parents.

Anniversary Gift Ideas for Your Friends

For friends celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, consider arranging for a greeting from the President if you are an American citizen. Greetings can be sent for the 50th wedding anniversary and every subsequent year. You'll need to submit your request to the White House six weeks in advance of the event date. 

Or, since the traditional gift for a 50th wedding anniversary is gold, consider organizing a "golden basket" full of goodies, such as Gold Blend coffee, Golden Grahams and anything wrapped in gold paper. Line the basket with shredded gold paper and add a gold bow.

Use these anniversary gift ideas to celebrate your 50th wedding anniversary, or to help your parents or friends commemorate their special day.
