Who is not dreaming about celebrating their fortieth, fiftieth, why not fifty-fifth wedding anniversary? Fifty-five years of marriage truly is a lifetime, and such a love as the one existing between two partners reaching this milestone moment of their relationship is to be appreciated and respected.
No doubt that this event in a couple's marriage is to be marked accordingly. So, in this article I will write about my ideas of ways to celebrate a fifty-fifth anniversary, and gifts that are perfect to be offered on this event.
First of all, I will suggest some gifts associated to the traditional and modern theme of the year: emerald. And what other category of objects would made better emerald gifts than jewellery: emerald earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants, watches, or brooches for her, and cufflinks and rings for him. So, an emerald piece of jewellery would most surely make a perfect fifty-fifth anniversary gift.
On the other hand, there are gifts other than emerald that are very appropriate for a fifty-fifth milestone annviersary, like: a personalized anniversary plate, a scrapbook with pictures and messages very close to the couple's heart, a video with snapshots of their most important moments together, or a recording with messages and greetings from their dear ones (family, friends, neighbors).
Yet, probably one of the most precious gifts for couples reaching such a stage in their lives is your time. Especially if they are suffering, you could gift them with a few hours of your precious time, to spend with them and listen to their stories and longings. Old people enjoy spending time with their dear ones and share their memories with them. Or, they might need your help in their household as well. So, plan putting away a day or an afternoon to spend with them. It might be the best gift for a fifty-fifth wedding anniversary.
