A 50th anniversary is extremely special, especially so if your parents are celebrating fifty years of being together in love! As a son or daughter, you must have seen your parents sacrifice so many things so that you can live your life comfortably. Special occasions such as a 50th wedding anniversary offer the perfect opportunity to show your parents how much you love and value them. Scroll down for some meaningful and heartfelt gifts for parents, which are sure to make them happy and proud of you.
A Second Honeymoon
An anniversary is the perfect time for any couple to go on a holiday together. So why not send your parents to some foreign country, with all the traveling, staying and touring expenses paid by you in advance. A second honeymoon holiday gift will surely remain etched in your parents' memories forever!
A Spa Voucher
Gift them a relaxing day at a spa. Old age comes with its own problems and pains. So, a day at a spa can totally calm, relax and rejuvenate your parents like none!
Organize a get-together to which all the close family and friends are invited. To make it more fun, keep it as a surprise. Your parents will be thrilled and at a loss of words to see their own siblings, their children, some of their close college and school buddies, after such a long time.
"Wedding Photo" in Golden Frame
Personalized gifts are cherished by everybody. So another great idea is to get one of the wedding photographs of your parents framed in a golden photo frame. Get both of your parents' names as well as wedding anniversary date imprinted on the photo frame too. Wrap this gift in a golden wrapping paper and present it to your parents. They would simply be overjoyed looking at their wedding picture once again!
You can offer to renovate their house for them. Many old couples do not pay much attention to the interiors of their house. So you can offer to add a few furniture items, get their house re-painted, basically do anything which will make it a more beautiful and comfortable place for them to live in! This gift is sure to find you a lot of appreciation by your parents.
Gift some gold accessories to your parents. For your mom, you can perhaps buy a gold bracelet or a gold ring. For your father, you can consider a gold watch or cuff-links.
If there is a particular restaurant or eatery which your parents visit often, you can gift them a few gift vouchers of the same. This way your parents can comfortably go there and have a good time, without worrying about bill payment. And the best part is that this gift can be enjoyed by them for months to come!
In the end, all I can say is that more than any gift, it is your company and love that your parents want. So do not wait for an anniversary to tell them that you care. Call them up every now and then, pay surprise visits on weekends and take them out for dinner once in a while, it will do more for them than any gift!
