30th Wedding Anniversary Gifts

It might not be a silver, white, or gold anniversary but it still should not be overlooked.

The 30th wedding anniversary is quite a relationship milestone and a great excuse to celebrate. Traditionally, this anniversary has the theme of pearls but a more modern take on the occasion calls for diamonds. Either way, elegant jewellery is a great fail-safe option if you’re choosing a gift for your spouse. If you’re looking to buy for a couple, get creative and try to find something that celebrates their time together. If you’re stuck for ideas, consult this handy guide to get some pointers for on-theme, meaningful gestures that will make great 30th wedding anniversary gifts.

Tips to choosing the most ideal 30th wedding anniversary gift

There are different ways to choose the most ideal 30th anniversary gift. This time around we concentrate on the gifts the couple can give each other.

Husband to wife: At this stage in your marriage, you already know what your partner’s preference and style is. When choosing a gift for your wife, you want a gift that says you love her now more than ever and signifies your time spent together.

There are many messages you can tell your wife, from ‘thank you’ to ‘you are cherished’. It may also be a good idea to present a gift that’s nostalgic, such as the recreation of your first date, or a second honeymoon. Of course, jewellery never fails to impress and this could be diamonds or pearls.

Wife to husband: When it comes to your husband, the gift ideas do not have to be restricted to the traditional or modern themes. Men are more particular and they prefer gifts that they can use. A new tennis racket, golf clubs, or even a motorcycle jacket could suffice. If you wish to stick with official gifts, you could get him a diamond encrusted watch and pearl cufflinks.

Pearls are unique because they grow in mollusks and oysters. There are two types: cultured and natural pearls. Cultured pearls are most commonly used in jewellery-making and are purposely created, while natural pearls are created naturally by the species.

Diamonds are the modern gift and, unlike pearls, are quite strong and do not need much care. Just like pearls, diamonds make fine jewellery, making this a jewellery anniversary.

Flowers also make good gift ideas for all anniversaries. To make your gift even more special, you might want to consider going with the signature flower for this anniversary, which is a lily.

Lilies are majestic flowers that are loved for their regal beauty. This flower symbolises many things, mainly because it comes in different types and colours. For example, white lilies are symbolic of modesty while orange lilies signify passion. Just like roses, lilies signify love and make a good accompaniment for any gift.

Besides working with traditional and modern gifts, and flowers, you can also stray from the norm and find another gift the couple will appreciate. Some examples include: tickets to watch their favourite team in action, a paid adventure trip or vacation, and an experience the couple might enjoy. You could also give the tangible gifts that are useful in their everyday lives, such as appliances.

    i am going to an 30th. wedding anniversary party, what is okay to give to the couple?

    • finder Customer Care

      Hi Kindheartedlady,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Choosing an anniversary gift could be sometimes hard. But if you have a close relationship with the couple, that would be an advantage as you would be able to at least know what they like and wish to have.

      Nevertheless, what’s important, you will give something that is useful and appropriate for the couple. You can actually choose a variety of items from wines, photobooks, personalised wall decors or even beddings that are featured above. Simply click on the ‘View Details’ to be redirected to the retailer’s website and find a more complete list of the products they offer.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,
      May
