Tips on giving 25th wedding anniversary gifts

The most important thing to keep in mind when buying a 25th wedding anniversary gift (or any gift for that matter) is the personality of the recipient. Themes can be a great source of inspiration, but the best gifts are like a wink or a knowing smile: they let the other person know you understand them and their tastes.

Whether you’re choosing a gift for your spouse or for a couple, here are some tips.

  • Make it your own. No matter what gift you end up choosing, making your gift unique could be as simple as making the packaging yourself or engraving the gift.
  • Set a budget. Once you know how much money you can spend, your search will become streamlined and much easier to manage.
  • Think about experiences, rather than material gifts. Whisking your loved one off on a trip can be an unforgettable gift and a great way to make some new memories.
  • Think of their likes and interests. Think of their favourite hobby or a new skill they want to acquire and buy a gift along those lines.
  • Don’t forget the card. A thoughtful and handwritten card is essential to a meaningful gift.

25th wedding anniversary gift ideas

Jewellery is always a great gift and you can easily find different types of silver jewellery for both men and women. This is important because unless you are the spouse, you’re meant to buy a gift for the couple and not one person. The good thing about silver jewellery is that it’s quite affordable and you can find sterling silver or good quality silver at a decent price. If you’re buying a gift for your wife, a silver charm bracelet is a great as it represents your life together. A pendant with birthstones of your children could hold special significance. You can also have the jewellery personalised with the couple’s initials and make it more special by incorporating the couple’s birthstones into the jewellery. Besides jewellery, there decor items - and there’s no shortage of these in silver that you can buy. From mirrors to candle holders, it all depends on your creativity and the couple’s personal interests.

A couple that is celebrating their 25th anniversary has built a lifetime of memories together and memory related gifts are precious. For example, you could buy a silver frame with their wedding or a family picture placed at its centre. This may not cost much but it will without a doubt be a valuable gift for the pair and one they’ll cherish for years. You could also create a CD compilation with the greatest hits of the year of their marriage, including the songs they played at their wedding, including the first song they danced to at their wedding or the song played when walking down the aisle. If you are buying for your significant other, you can also replicate the first jewellery item you bought for your spouse in silver. The idea is to be creative with the gift while keeping with the theme.


Tips to choosing 25th wedding anniversary gifts

When looking for a gift for your partner to celebrate your 25th anniversary, you might want to start by paying attention to their hints. If for example your wife keeps complaining about her car, you could take this as an opportunity to buy her a new silver car. As a couple of 25 years, you’ve no doubt already learned the subtle hints used by your partner. Think about his or her preferences. Try and look for a gift they’ll actually enjoy. If for example s/he loves to cook, you might want to buy some good quality silver cookware or crockery for entertaining.

Perhaps a holiday getaway is in store, instead? Think about a destination the couple loves, or a location that is significant and symbolic to them for example, where they went for their honeymoon, or where they went for their first date. Another great idea is a renewal of their vows. If you’re the child of the couple, you might like to organise a party in celebration of the occasion. Or, you can combine all of the above ideas and create a truly memorable time to celebrate the special milestone. Have dinner, renew your vows, take a second honeymoon and enjoy the blessing of going strong for 25 good years.
