Gift Ideas for your Parent’s Golden Wedding Anniversary

Remember The Older Folk, OK?


An important day for your parents so make it a great time to remember

Looking for a gift is quite simple when you know what to look for.

Several things can be taken into account to guide you pick the most suitable gift idea, including hobby, fashion taste and likes.

No matter what occasion, the quest of finding an ideal gift is never challenging if you know well the recipient.

Have you spent many hours browsing the net for nice presents for your parent’s golden wedding anniversary?

There are tons of items you can find over the web (which might just confuse you).

All you need to do is think of how you want your gift to bring joy to your parents.

Do you want your gift to be plainly decorative?

Or you prefer the item to be used daily? Below are a few items that will make wonderful wedding anniversary gifts.

Engraved Golden Photo Frame

Search for photo frame with gold hue.

If you find it hard hunting for golden frame, you can just buy any shade and color it yourself. Use a spray paint to coat the frame with gold color.

Why gold?

Obviously, it is meant to commemorate the golden anniversary of your parents. Once you have the frames, you can take it to an engraver to add the names of your parents along with the wedding dates. Some stores offer free engraving service if you bought the items from them.

Pick the most memorable picture of your parents and insert it into the frames. Otherwise, you can choose a photo of you together with your mom and dad.

This gift holds a lasting memory of you and your parents – a cherished possession for a lifetime.

Personalized Mr. and Mrs. Mugs

Choosing mugs as wedding gift might sound ordinary.

Mug is just a typical kitchen ware you can find in many stores. So how come it makes an ideal wedding anniversary gift? Adding a personal touch to the mug can already turn it into a special gift item. Look for gift shops offering custom-made designs. Add the name of your mom on the mug while the name of your dad on the other mug.

Discover the secrets in getting your ex back in your life

You can also request to print the picture of your parents on their respective mug.

A pair of mug is a useful gift to your parents.

They can use it in drinking coffee or tea.

So while they are taking a sip of the coffee, they can remember you through the mug.

Personalized Scrapbook

A distinctive way to please your parents is by crafting a scrapbook of their love story.

Gather as many photos of your parents as you can including child photos, first anniversary images and others. Arrange these photographs starting from their younger years up to the present. Stick the pictures on the pages of the scrapbook. Embellish the pages by sticking some decorative pieces like small flowers, ribbons etc.

Add quirky captions on each photo to bring more life to these collections.

All the materials needed to create a scrapbook can be bought in school supply store.

Crafting this gift is never a problem.

Practical Items

Are you thinking of a more practical items?

That’s great!

Practical things are those items your parents can use after the wedding anniversary event. For instance, you can buy bed pillows which can offer your mother and father comfort while sleeping.

To add a personal touch to your gift, have their names embroidered on the cushion case. These soft, embroidered cushions can give your parents good night sleep.

even quality cheese and wine can be a special gift

If you are concerned about the health and safety of your parents, you can give them alert system, like medical guardian, so that they can quickly inform anybody when an accident occurs. Other items you can think of are alarm clock, glasses and touch lamps.

Remember, gifts do not have to be pricey.

Price is never a basis of a gift item.

The most important thing is your golden wedding anniversary gift is given heartily and it brings joy to your elderly parents.

      Hey Philip and thanks for the visit and question too.
      Guess all that depends on budget – I remember when my parents were alive, I actually went poking around in a few second hand shops and found a priceless gold frame which I used to house a picture of all is kids. Winner!

    I did something completely different for my parent’s 25th anniversary & they were very happy with it. My parents are workaholics. They don’t like to stay at house even during the weekend. So I decided to give them a big surprise by giving them a fully paid tropical getaway so they could have any kind of fun they want. They named it the best vacation ever!
