Golden Wedding gifts are traditionally gold, gold plated, or at least gold colored; a 50th anniversary is a milestone few couples achieve, and is celebrated with precious metal. Other anniversaries are also celebrated with precious items, the silver anniversary for the 25 years of marriage and the diamond anniversary for 100 years.
Wedding gifts in gold are usually jewelry or jewelry boxes; cufflinks in yellow gold for the groom and a yellow gold necklace with a 50 pendant would be a nice choice. Yellow gold is important because white gold could be mistaken for silver and to go through the trouble of purchasing gold to have it mistaken would be unfortunate.

Gold Plated Gifts
Golden wedding gifts plated in gold can be charming such as picture frames, gold plated roses, and even more, items can be dipped in 24k gold plating. Picture frames in gold are an especially nice choice for a couple, made even more special by filling the frame with a family photo with every member of the family in the picture. The gold plated roses are live roses that are dipped in 24k gold plating to preserve the roses forever.
There are several gold-colored golden wedding gifts, many in the form of plaques, gift boxes to hold 50-year-old keepsakes, and deep yellows make a fare approximation of gold. Many websites will offer 50-year-old newspapers, stamps, and more, which come in beautiful shining gold boxes to commemorate the occasion. Deep yellow roses make a lovely bouquet for a couple who is celebrating their 50th anniversary.
Golden Wedding Gifts Worth Their Weight in Gold
Some golden wedding gifts are worth their weight in gold, for the memories they create or the dreams they fulfill. Sending a couple to the place where they took their honeymoon for example can be a nice way to show the couple your wishes for many more anniversaries. Giving the celebrated couple an adventure or vacation they have always wanted to take another way to show them how much they are cared for.
A dinner at a favorite restaurant can be the perfect golden wedding gift for a special couple; as can a stock certificate in their name; several companies offer the certificates available for purchase on the internet.
Golden wedding gifts should be as thoughtful as the accomplishment of 50 years of marriage deserves; knowing the couple, their hobbies, their lifestyles, and what they hold valuable will make the gift as special and unique as the people the gifts are going to.
