How to Get Golden Anniversary Gifts That Say It All
Fifty years of marriage is certainly an occasion for bringing some serious gleam to your gifts, whether they're jewelry, love notes, travel, or beyond. Check out our guide to choosing the perfect one for the special person who's stood by you all those years. 

Say it with a signet
A signet ring is a popular gold ring that can be easily personalized with your monogram or family crest. What a perfect way to "stamp" 50 years of memories into a piece of jewelry both husbands and wives will wear and treasure for years to come. You can even have a secret message inscribed on the underside of the ring if you so please!

Picture perfect
Create a photo album of all your treasured times from the last 50 years for a golden anniversary gift that's sure to delight not just on the day it's opened, but time and time again once it takes its rightful prideful place on your coffee table. From wedding photos to silly candids, it's hard to beat a compilation of memories like this. Choose an album cover with gold accents if you're feeling extra ambitious, or a well-placed "50" on the cover gets the point across just as well.

Light things up
Nothing sets the mood like a golden anniversary gift of candles, and a pristine set, complete with gold candleholders are the perfect pieces to light up your mantelpiece and delight your partner with a romantic glow. It's also the perfect way to remind them that they're kept the "fire burning" even after all these years.

Time it right
A gold watch ? or gold-accented clock ? is a beautiful way to remind your love that it hardly feels like any time's gone by in your journey together. Not only that, but they'll be sure to think of you and your thoughtful golden anniversary gift many times throughout the day!

Write it out
Your love deserves a special place to write their hopes, dreams, feelings, thank-you notes, and? yes, even shopping lists! Gilded-edge stationery is a stunning and luxurious present that anyone will love, especially knowing how much thought went into the clever and useful golden anniversary gift. Pair it with a gold-edged journal or daybook to keep the theme going. And why not have it embossed with your love's name for a unique touch?

Pack things up
A trip for 50 days only seems appropriate for such a milestone, but that's hardly something most of us can pull off. Instead, give a fun twist by scheduling a 50-HOUR trip. Leave Friday afternoon and get back Sunday early evening. The trick? Make sure you make the most of every one of your 50 hours together, whether it's simply sharing quiet time over books, taking in the sunset, or trying something new and adventurous! It's definitely a golden anniversary gift you'll both enjoy and love referencing year after year. Bon voyage!
