Gold Anniversary Clock

A traditional gift of a golden anniversary clock or his and hers watches can all be engraved with a special message. An anniversary clock is a very traditional gift and became popular in the early 1900s as a wedding gift. The name 'anniversary clock' was copyrighted in 1901 by the Bowler & Burdock Co., Ohio. This was because this style of clock had a mechanism that allowed it to run for 400 days without winding. It became popular as a wedding gift as you only had to wind it up once a year - normally on the couple's anniversary. Today most of the anniversary clocks are battery operated as the mechanism was so delicate in the original clocks they were easily damaged. But the name anniversary clock still remains.

Alternative 50th Anniversary Gift Ideas

  • For the music lovers you can get replica gold discs of their favourite albums or singles and there are lots of compilation albums that have gold in the title, "Classic Gold" comes to mind.
  • Your anniversary couple may have a lot of photos that they would like to have displayed in photobooks or a lovely gold frame of a family portrait.
  • Golden hampers for gifts for 50th wedding anniversary suit most tastes. Fill them with their favourite things? From biscuits to whisky there would be lots to fill it with. At an aunt and uncle's 50th anniversary they received a bottle of Cava that had been written on in gold pen which they still have now. You could have everyone sign your bottle of sparkling as a great souvenir of their special day.
  • For those with bigger budgets a cruise is a great way to see lots of golden sunsets and nice and relaxing as well, or as friends of ours celebrated their golden wedding anniversary you could get the family together and spend a weekend in a nice hotel.

And that is really what a 50th wedding anniversary is about, family and friends celebrating a great couple.
