If you are choosing 50th anniversary gifts you will find yourself in a sea of gold, real and not so real. Hopefully if you are looking for a themed anniversary gift like this then you have found lots of ideas in the 50th wedding anniversary and party section.
But not all couples are traditional, not all couples like gold and not all gift givers can afford the gold gift that they would really like to give. For those couples there has to be an alternative and thankfully there is!
If you have been married for 50 years you have to have a good sense of humor! And a number of other qualities like tolerance, forgiveness and forgetfulness also help, along with lots of love too!
So if your anniversary couple enjoys a bit of a giggle why not treat them to a his and hers t-shirt.
There are lots to choose from at Zazzle.
A bouquet of personalized gold roses would make a beautiful keepsake for a 50th anniversary.
You can order a single rose or a whole bouquet.

The reason that couples stay together for 50 years is not just that they have a shared sense of humor it is also that they are truly in love.
Love for 50 years is summed up perfectly in this Precious Moments figure. The holding of hands and the looking into each others eyes is lovely. If your anniversary couple collect another type of figurine then you may be lucky to find that there is one dedicated to celebrate a 50th anniversary. If not have a look at the couple figures or ones that have love or marriage as part of the title.
Collectibles are a great anniversary gift, you could start their collection for them and buy them the first piece, or look at adding to a collection that they already love.If your anniversary couple don't collect anything see if you can make enquires as to whether they still have their dinner service that they probably received as a wedding gift. You could see if you could replace items that have been broken over the years.
If your couple love to have cosy nights in and have their favorite chair, then how about this 50th anniversary throw. It would have pride of place in their home and would also look great on their bed or even as a wall hanging.
You could add to the throw and make a cosy night in gift basket with a box of chocolates, a bottle of wine and a movie that you know they will love. It could even be a movie from the year they were married.
This family throw and many others are available at Personal Creations.
Talking of gift baskets, we came across this great retro candy gift box filled with candy from 1962, it is meant for a 50th birthday but there is nothing stopping you changing the cover of the box or adding the candy to your own gift basket.
Of course you don't have to theme your anniversary gift, if you know they would love a new plant for their garden or theatre and cinema tickets then that would still be a great 50th anniversary gift.
