Traditional 50th Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Parents
If the holiday is “too much”, you can always give something important like a cruise , but at the same time cheaper and more flexible, while giving the opportunity to visit many new places (if you feel like it) or to make a relaxing life, served and revered 24 hours a day.
Don’t like to go around? You could give an afternoon at the spa or a weekend in some all-inclusive spa. Relaxation is always appreciated by everyone.
Traditional 50th Wedding Anniversary Gifts For the House

Give a picture of the country or place where they married, or a picture of an author you know they love.
For lovers of watches and home accessories, a pendulum clock could be the right gift. It would be very nice to be able to have the wedding dates engraved as a souvenir.
The most classic gift for the anniversary of 50 years of marriage, a photo frame (perhaps gold-plated) where you can insert one of their most important photos, or even better, the photo of everyone present at the party.
Plaque with engraving
Among the gifts for the golden wedding under 50 euros you can choose to customize a plaque, having a beautiful phrase engraved and the names of all the grandchildren or family members, and of course the wedding date and the current one. It will be one of those gifts that will show proud to all guests.
When you don’t want to dare or don’t want to do anything demanding, a gift that is always highly appreciated can be a beautiful plant to decorate your home.
Coffee or tea service
A coffee or golden tea service is one of the classic gifts for a golden wedding. But the real question is: will they use it or will it go to collect dust in the showcase of the living room?
If they need some new home appliance , it’s a good time to give it to them. Do you need a new dishwasher? A new washing machine? A new TV ?
It will not be a gift that will give emotions or memories, but at least it will be useful.
Among the gift ideas for the golden wedding, jewels are also very welcome gifts.
It would be nice to find jewelry for the couple, possibly in gold, like bracelets, where you can engrave the wedding date and a small sentence.
Give a photo shoot with a professional photographer. It will be a further memory to be jealously kept in the house and why not, to be covered in a few years always all together.
If you want to give something handmade for the golden wedding, here are some ideas.
The simplest but also most exciting gift idea could be a collage of photos that describe their whole life, starting from their wedding day until today. Going through 50 years of life together, all the sacrifices they have faced, all the beautiful moments they have gone through, and seeing where they managed to get today, will make anyone excited.
Another great classic of DIY gifts for the golden wedding is the video. Take the most beautiful photos you find and through a special program (such as Windows Movie Maker that you have already installed on your PC if you use WIndows) create a video with a beautiful soundtrack. Tell their story from the wedding day until today and insert between the photos of the anecdotes of their life. You will get a tearful gift.
A tip, do not exceed 5 minutes in duration, otherwise it becomes too heavy to see.
On the internet you can find many ideas to create a personalized picture for the 50th wedding anniversary. Here are some examples.
Write a poem in golden ink and frame it in a golden frame too. A gift that comes from the heart.
Organize and give an outdoor picnic with all your loved ones in a special place. The dominant color of the objects (glasses, plates, …)? Obviously gold.
