Are you still thriving as a couple after 50 years of marriage? Now, thatâ€™s something worth celebrating. Known as the â€śgolden anniversary,â€ť this milestone is marked in both traditional and modern fashion with, unsurprisingly, gold.
Gold is a luxe material that's worthy of your bond together and makes for a thoughtful and enduring gift. Whether you go for a delicate bracelet or pair of gold-rimmed sunglasses, the classic 50th-anniversary emblem will be sure to make a statement.
You canâ€™t go wrong with gifting in gold, but there are lots of other great ways to mark the occasion. With 50 years together, youâ€™ve likely shared a wide range of fun travels and special memories. Commemorate these times with a personal gift, like a photo book of your global adventures or a custom record wall art displaying your favorite songs.

For something truly heartfelt and special, the Personalized Metallic LP Record is our top pick. If youâ€™re going for gold, you canâ€™t go wrong with a timeless piece of jewelry like the Liquid Gold Cuff Bracelet, or a gold accented gift youâ€™ll both enjoy, such as the Primrose Gold 16-Piece Stoneware Dinnerware Set.
What are some creative and unique anniversary ideas?
Half a century is something to celebrate, so why not renew your vows? It doesnâ€™t even need to be a big party, but a special elopement between the two of you. Or you can opt for a thoughtful homemade gift, like putting together a slideshow or movie documenting your time together.
Of course, a party with friends and family is always a great idea to celebrate the occasion. Or, you can opt for a special dinner at home or a return trip to a place that holds special memories for both of you. Whatever you choose, make sure to give your spouse a heartfelt card expressing your love and appreciation.
