We have lots of 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas for your parents, with lots of ways to include gold as part of their celebrations.
One really easy way to add gold to your gifts is to make sure you wrap everything in gold paper. This works really well if you have put together a gift basket for your Mom and Dad too.
And remember gold gifts don't have to be made from real gold, there are lots of gift ideas that are the color of gold too.
Plus, don't just think gold for your gift, think about what you know your parents will love, we have put together some of our most popular gifts being bought for a 50th Anniversary to give you some ideas.
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
Golden Family Quilt
Call all of your mom's friends who are handy with needles and
together make a quilt.
Each patch should be done by family and friends.
You can use significant cloths for the patches to make the anniversary
quilt meaningful and not just beautiful.
The patches can tell a story or
represent parts of your parents' married life. Make use of technology.
Have your parents' images transferred into a piece of plain cloth and
make that piece the center of the family quilt, you could use images
from their wedding day and as they are today.
You can buy photo transfer paper at Amazon which you use in your own home printer. Then you use an iron to iron the transfer on.
It just shows that 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas don't have to be made of gold!
