Being able to say you are married for 50 years is quite an accomplishment. Something so rare and unique in these disposable modern days needs to be commemorated. You can find many gift ideas for the couple who have been happily married for the past 50 years that will be appreciated for many years to come.
What Type of Gift is Expected for a 50th Wedding Anniversary?
Both the modern and traditional gift for those who have staid together until the half century mark is gold. There are many lovely gifts that you can purchase that will show your admiration for the couple. After all, it is not everyone that can boast a 50 year marriage.
For a simple gift that will be lovingly displayed, you can buy a gold picture frame that is engraved with the name and dates of the married couple. You can create your own gift by making a keepsake book that is full of pictures of past and present, and present it in a gold embossed album. You can use gold ink for describing the pictures to stay in the 50th anniversary theme of gold. A more elaborate memorabilia gift is to paint a small tree with gold paint and decorate it with meaningful objects and photos to represent their long life together.
Those who want to give a more adventurous gift to those active seniors can send them on a trip to the Gold Coast, or to Las Vegas and have them stay in a hotel with the name Gold in it like the Golden Nugget. You can send them on a cruise adventure to explore where the Alaska gold rush took place. Many seniors rate a trip to Alaska high on their list of places to go.
A display plate with a poem written in gold can also be a thoughtful gift for a couple who have been married for 50 years. They can proudly show the world their accomplishment set high on a shelf or a mantle. Matching gold necklaces in his and her styles can be just the answer you were looking for when you want to spend a little bit more money on a gift.
Use your imagination and flair when you are deciding on a gift for a couple who deserves recognition for their love and perseverance in the face of adversity and hard times, as well as times that were good. They deserve a nod and applause for the example they have set for the younger generation.
