60th Wedding Anniversary Gifts - Ideas for Great Presents to Mark a Great Celebration

Are you searching for inspiration and ideas for 60th wedding anniversary gifts?

By the time you've reached your sixtieth wedding anniversary, the two of you are in a much different place than you were when you first got married.

Maybe you've had children and now you have grand children. Maybe you've been around the world a time or two and hopefully, you are able to get pretty much anything you want, whenever you want. You're getting older, but hopefully, you're not slowing down too much. If you are, that's okay; hopefully the two of you have lived a full, rich life.

If you're the family member or loved one of a couple who is celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary, or if you're the couple who is coming up to this amazing day, you might be wondering what you should be giving as a 60th wedding anniversary gift.

If you're one half of a couple who has lasted this long, you might have some good ideas as to what you would like to give, but if you're not part of the couple, choosing an appropriate gift can feel like an outright struggle.

Stick with tradition

Now, if you're working up to your 60th wedding anniversary, you might be thrilled to know that the traditional symbol for this occasion is the diamond. Yes, ladies, the diamond.

Now, we all know that diamonds never go out of style and very few people actually don't like diamonds, so if you're able, now is the time to get your spouse that diamond something that they've been dreaming about. Whether you're choosing a simple, sparkly diamond pendant, or you want something that shouts, "Look at me!", pieces of jewelry that have diamonds on them are always well accepted and loved as 60th wedding anniversary gifts.

When you're not part of the couple, gift giving can be more difficult

If you are giving a 60th wedding anniversary gift to the long lasting couple, you might be wondering how you can possibly justify buying them diamonds, but the thing is - you might not have to. Even if you want to stick to tradition, you can still give them something wonderful and special for their anniversary and not have to spend a small fortune.

You should consider following a few guidelines when you're searching for the right 60th wedding anniversary gifts for this occasion, so that you can ensure that everyone has a good time.

  • How old is the couple? 60 years is a long time, and it's highly unlikely that the couple celebrating this anniversary is still young. In fact, it's not unusual for people who make it to their 60th wedding anniversary to be well into their 80's, so this should figure into your planning process. If they are fortunate, this couple still has their health and is able to get around, but sometimes, this doesn't happen, so you should plan accordingly.

  • Often, when a couple gets to this stage of their lives, it's not really necessary to give extravagant 60th wedding anniversary gifts. So, maybe a small family celebration is in order. A cake decorated with inexpensive crystals or designed to look like their original wedding cake and a few friends and family might be all that's needed to make the day really special.

  • As people get older, they don't find it necessary to give or receive extravagant gifts. In fact, many people who are this age treasure things which can be passed down, so consider 60th wedding anniversary gifts which are keepsakes, such as a memory book with photos from the couple's life. You can make it even more fun if you can find love letters they shared or special mementoes.

  • Respect the couple's wishes. Sometimes, people who are older don't feel like they need to celebrate, and if that's the case, give them that. Don't force someone to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary if they don't want to.

Ultimately, any 60th wedding anniversary gifts which you decide to give should be chosen with the couple in mind. And if you're one half of the couple, you probably have a pretty good idea as to what your other half wants anyway, so work with the wants of your spouse to help make a beautiful 60th wedding anniversary that you both will remember for the rest of your lives.
