If you would go for tradition, gold is the gift to aim for. Ask yourself if your mom and dad need any piece of gold jewelry. Your mom may want a nice gold necklace or bracelet. Your dad may want to replace his old watch. However, there is really no need to go overboard on your budget, 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas do not have to cost the earth. It is good if you have other siblings then you can pool your resources and buy a nice expensive traditional golden gift for your parents.
If you are a lone child and can't afford expensive gold, you can settle for something golden in color, like a gold scarf and necktie. If your parents are coin collectors, these are great gifts too. Other options for golden things are brooch, cuff links, rings, pendant and earrings.
The meaning of golden here simply means special.
You do not have to be limited by gold things for traditional 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas for parents.

When was the last time you and the whole family sat down for a portrait?
Why not have an informal family picture taken by a professional. Don't let your parents know that the photographer is a pro and is all set on taking candid pictures of the family to make a photo album. You can pick the most beautiful shot of the family and have it framed in gold. You can help hang the picture in your parents' house. You can also frame smaller family pictures and set them on top of a console or a piano or anywhere convenient.
Call all of your mom's friends who are handy with needles and together make a quilt.
If you would prefer to leave the sewing to the professionals how about this lovely personalized 50th anniversary throw?

My mother-in-law had a throw just like this, always draped over the back of her favorite chair.

A couple celebrating their 50 years together is in that state where they don't even want to receive gifts. At their age, they don't want small trinkets that they won't even use.
