The traditional 50th anniversary gift is gold. The official gemstone is gold or golden topaz. Gold was often associated with wealth and optimism, which after 50 years together is a pretty safe assumption. There is no modern counterpart to this important anniversary.
Keep in mind that when you are purchasing a gift for the 50th wedding anniversary, you are also purchasing the couple an item that they are going to have to keep in their home. By this time in the couple's marriage, they might have downsized their living quarters, or even be living in a retirement community. In thinking up 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas, you want to remember that they might not have the room, or even the use, for some objects like they would have in the past.
For that reason, being creative in your gift giving, or offering services, is almost always appreciated. For instance, for 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas, you might want to consider providing a free day of house cleaning or a free day of yard work. You could also provide a certificate for a free home cooked meal, prepared at their place.
Gift certificates to restaurants, or taking the couple out to eat, are nice ways to provide gifts without giving the couple something tangible that they have to find a place for.
Mementos make good presents as well. It's possible that you, or your other family members and friends, have photographs of the couple that they don't possess themselves. Getting these together and creating a photo album for the couple is a fine 50th wedding anniversary gift idea that would probably be greatly appreciated.
If you don't like the idea of a photo album, but you don't have the time to make a scrapbook, then you could also design a photo book on the computer. There are several websites that have these options. They are very inexpensive and basically all you have to do is upload the pictures and the program arranges them inside a book. The book is then printed and mailed to you.
Another great 50th wedding anniversary gift idea is taking home videos of the couple, along with some photographs, and putting them on DVD with a musical number in the background. It could be the song that they had played at their wedding, one they danced to at their reception, or just a favorite song that means a lot to the couple.
If you would like to purchase the couple an item, then gold jewelry is a popular choice for 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas. Gold earrings, cuff links, watches, and necklaces are all easy to find and come in a variety of designs with a range of beautiful stones to set them off.
If you are looking for a present for your spouse, and the two of you like to travel, then a trip to the Gold Coast, a gold mine, or even the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas could be a great way to celebrate your anniversary. Vegas can be enjoyed at any age, after all, and you could make a second honeymoon out of it.
