50th Wedding Anniversary ideas & advice

The Golden Wedding Anniversary, as 50 years of marriage is known is a major milestone, and celebration of this event is usually made with all your friends and family. Spending half a century, and more than half your life, together is worth a big celebration. Traditional and modern 50th wedding anniversary presents have a theme of gold as gold symbolises wealth and its warm colour inspires optimism. Gold is one of the most precious metals in the world, valued for its resistance to corrosion, strength and beautiful colour, but the 50th wedding anniversary does not have any Gemstones associated with it. The flowers associated with a 50th wedding anniversary are Violets.

To ensure your partner is happy with their anniversary gift it should be personal. A gift that enhances an existing hobby, like gardening or model-making, or encompasses a future need like luggage for someone hoping to travel a lot in their leisure time. Don't assume, just because they have retired, that they "will start playing golf now". If you're unsure, buy gift tokens from a shop that sells items they would like so they can choose for themselves. Hobbies become more important in older age, as more time is available.

If your partner is more conservative, then their wedding anniversary gift should reflect their personality. Glassware, photo frames, clocks, pen sets, fountain pens, ballpoint pens, telescopic pens, letter openers, magnifying glasses, paperweights, these all make the ideal wedding anniversary gifts that will be used and cherished for life and not put away gathering dust. A present that can be used daily, always reminding them of you.

Anniversary gifts will vary as much as retired people do. Some are looking forward to quiet, some can't wait to do the adventurous things they've been postponing, still others aren't sure what they're going to do. Don't forget to use your partner's personality and lifestyle as your guide for that ideal anniversary gift, and think about what he or she likes to be doing in their spare time.

A couple goes out to dinner to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. On the way home, she notices a tear in his eye and asks if he's getting sentimental because they're celebrating 50 wonderful years together. He replies, "No, I was thinking about the time before we got married. Your father threatened me with a shotgun and said he'd have me thrown in jail for 50 years if I didn't marry you. Tomorrow I would've been a free man!"


The young man that I married
Is not the same today
That youthful carefree spirit
Now seems so far away.

But age rewards endurance
With pleasures all its' own
With time to build a future
Together...not alone.

And so my love I mention
The years we two have shared
Have made my life worth living
Just knowing that you've cared.
