my stepfather's parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend -- 50! years! -- and i've been trying for several weeks to think of a gift. originally we thought to hire a photographer to come and take a great family shot, but then we found out they don't want a big fuss and want the party to be very low key. we're taking them to fancy dinner the day after the party, but what does one give a couple who has been together for so long, travels frequently, and is not lacking for much? what would be meaningful to commemorate 50 years?

maybe... a cd with top 10 hits from the year they got married -- 1959! -- or something with "gold" in the name that isn't a gold-rimmed plate or picture frame... and we don't have vintage photos, so photo/slideshow is out. any ideas?


  1. Thanks Jen for featuring my Anniversary Canvas! I love creating them! These couples are so inspiring!

  2. thanks, stephanie! i wish i'd thought of it sooner -- if i can get a decent photo i may get you to fancy up one for the holidays. would be a lovely thing to get for people who have everything they need... (except a photo canvas...)

    it's hard, they're fairly low key and keep insisting we not make a fuss. but you've been married for 50 years...

  3. 50 years is a wonderful milestone (oops - almost wrote "millstone" lol) I think you have some fabulous choices here!

  5. So important to celebrate the milestones! how about a documentary film celebrating the 50 years together? Check out They do a great job at this!

  6. Smilebooks are not just a thoughtful gift; it’s a way to remember some of the best moments of your life.

  7. Waaay too late as a suggestion for this anniversary but for future reference, how about a personalized cushion for the couple with gold thread to celebrate this special event, perhaps incorporating linked hearts or some other appropriate design for the couple. See for other ideas.

  8. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.
