Find out More About Golden Anniversary Traditions
In the USA, the 50th year of marriage is known as the golden wedding anniversary, and is generally linked with gifts made from this precious metal. The precious and enduring nature of gold is a symbolic representation of the lasting and prized nature of a long married life and is the ultimate token of esteem. As well as gold, there are precious gems linked with this event, including gold topaz which can be combined with gold in jewelry form for a beautiful golden anniversary present.
The golden anniversary was given its name because in its earliest days, to mark the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary in northern Europe, a husband would present to his wife a beautifully crafted golden wreath or necklace.
There are two flowers linked with the golden wedding anniversary, and these are violets and roses. Although it is possible to purchase yellow violets, often yellow roses make an easier to source gift and also have the added associations of joy and appreciation that are attached to these flowers.
Symbolic 50th Anniversary Gifts for Couples
Any couple celebrating their golden wedding anniversary will love to receive a gift that is symbolic of their long union. A magnificent and opulent natural rose that has been dipped in pure 24 karat gold is a wonderful choice for any pair that appreciate the finest things in life. This intricate and stylish work of art will look beautiful when placed in pride of place in any room of the couple’s home and will speak volumes about how much they mean to you. Embodying the very essence of this key moment in their life with its lavish gold coating and symbolic rose imagery, it will make for an elegant and luxurious golden wedding anniversary present.
Unusual Ideas for 50th Wedding Anniversary Gifts
As a couple approach their half century of marriage, it is likely that they will already own everything that they could possibly need for their home. To give the special couple something truly worthy of appreciation, the entire family could get together to organize something really out of the ordinary that will give the happy pair a truly memorable experience.
A vacation or short break is a wonderful idea that will give the couple an opportunity to spend time together and enable them to make many more happy memories together. If the budget can stretch that far, why not club together to pay for your loved ones to go on the trip of a lifetime, perhaps on an exotic cruise or on that longed for trip around Europe that they have yearned to experience? If you want to stick to the gold theme, you could organize for them to visit a place that is linked to the theme, for example the Gold Coast.
Personalized 50th Anniversary Gifts
When sourcing unique and unusual anniversary gifts to celebrate a fiftieth wedding anniversary, one option open to you is to arrange for the present to be personalized. There are many beautiful yet practical gifts that can be engraved or embroidered with the couple’s names and anniversary date.
Textiles such as bedlinen, towels and cushions are all popular choices for personalization. There are many companies that specialize in providing this service, however if you are artistically talented, you could accomplish this task for yourself by embroidering the names or initials of your relatives.
An engraved gift always looks elegant, and glassware is one of the top options available to mark the 50th anniversary. Fine glass champagne flutes together with a high quality bottle of champagne make a classy and beautiful gift, and engraving only makes this token more special. The glasses can be used on important family occasions or displayed throughout the year.
Personalization is a wonderful way to create a bespoke gift and is a clear way of demonstrating that you have spent time on thinking of an individually designed gift for your loved ones.
A beautiful and heartfelt golden wedding anniversary gift will show your loved ones how much they are loved and admired by all their family. Every time they see a well chosen present, the giver will be brought to mind, and happy memories will be recalled.
