GOLD - 50th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

There is no need to look further than gold for your 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas. It has been noted by early societies that gold is the colour of the sun. It's association with the life-giving sun has given gold a place in the esteem of most civilizations. Gold is also relatively difficult to find (you don’t just find it lying in the streets) and is considered the foremost of the `royal metals’. It doesn’t corrode or oxidize, so there is no such thing as old gold.

As a result, those things that are old but untarnished are deemed to be `golden oldies’. It is this perception that makes a golden tradition foremost among 50th anniversary gift suggestions. It is fair to say that having lived half a century – a veritable lifetime – with your chosen partner, it is a considerable benchmark and utterly deserving of memorable 50th wedding anniversary gifts.

Raw Gold Nuggets

The question remains, what to get for that 50 year wedding anniversary? You’ve paid off the mortgage. You’ve borne and raised your children and more than likely retired from work to enjoy your golden years. It is also safe to say after fifty years together, you’ve had your share of rings, and perhaps brooches and necklaces, though there is certainly nothing wrong with them at all! In fact, as I understand it, people  have opened up stores where they exchange items of jewelry for money - profitably. Go figure.

Other suggestions for 50th wedding anniversary ideas could include anything from an anniversary cruise to a 50th wedding anniversary poem. You probably should say it with 50th anniversary flowers, which would be violets or yellow roses. Of course, 50th anniversary gift ideas are really as much about commemoration as they are celebration, so 50th anniversary presents might include gold embossed picture albums, gold picture frames or a simple gold commemorative candle.

Perhaps the best and most satisfying way to celebrate such a milestone is to bring together all the cherished loved ones (sometimes from all over the globe). Nothing will gladden the hearts of the Golden Couple more, than to have their children, grandchildren and dearest friends to give thanks and honour the union. Sometimes, the best suggestions for 50th wedding anniversary are simply for the children to pay homage to their parents and give back some of the love given them over a lifetime. Richer than gold, and sweeter than nectar, a reunion is a gift that keeps giving – both to the happy couple as well as their loved ones - for the rest of their lives. Could there be a sweeter 50th anniversary gift idea? Surely not!
