How to Choose a 50th Wedding Anniversary Gift
The traditional gift for a 50th wedding anniversary is gold, which symbolizes wisdom, strength, and prosperity for the couple. Anything gold goes for this celebration. Think a his and hers set of gold jewelry. Or, choose a piece of gold décor the couple can display in their home. Another alternative is a personalized gift or keepsake. These kinds of gifts can be the most cherished, as they help the couple to reminisce on the happy times throughout their lives. Some good ideas for personalized gifts include collages, photo books, or frames. You might even want to think outside the box and choose a gift that the couple can use together going forward, such as tickets for a getaway or a gift card for a couple’s massage.
