50th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

Otherwise known as the golden anniversary, a 50th anniversary is a celebration of love's resilience and versatility. Treat it right with a fitting gift.

50th wedding anniversaries should be well-celebrated. Traditionally for the 50th anniversary, men gave their wives a wreath or gold necklace. While the giving of a golden wreath is no longer widely practised today, gifts of gold are still exchanged between husband and wife to celebrate the 50th anniversary. Gifts of gold are also given to the couple to commemorate this milestone.

Naturally, gold is a traditional gift for the couple to give one another and are often in the form of a gold necklace or gold cufflinks. If you want to be less straight forward, a gift of a “golden” place like a holiday to the Gold Coast, an item bearing the word "gold" or golden antiques like an aged gramophone or golden coins can also work. Whether you choose to stay "on theme" or buy a gift that simply suits the happy couple, what matters most is the thought. Gold merely helps to choose a gift during the searching process.

    What inexpensive gift can I buy for a relatives 50th wedding anniversary

    • Staff
      ClareSeptember 1, 2016Staff

      Hi Laura,

      Thanks for your question. It’s a little bit of a tricky one to answer however, as it depends who the gift is for, and how much your budget it.

      Have a look through the gift ideas in here we have suggested https://www.finder.com.au/50th-wedding-anniversary-gifts.

      Alternatively, flowers are always a good idea and can be inexpensive.

      Hope that helps,
      Clare
