50th anniversary gifts are such a joy to buy; in todays world, how often is it that you find two people that have been together for five decades? It is a rare occassion and should be celebrated extravagently. But after 50 years together, chances are the couple you're shopping for has everything they could every possibly need, at least for their household. 50th anniversary gifts pose the challenge of shopping for a gift that combines both of their tastes in one perfect package.
One of the most common 50th anniversary gifts is a party; a big bash is often a gift in itself because it gives the couple time to catch up with friends that they may not get to see very often. After 50 years together, they deserve it. Have a matted photograh of them on their wedding day or a more recent one at the door, ask the guests to write their personal well wishes on the mat and then take it the next day to be professionally framed.
Does the happy couple enjoy art? Shop for a piece of art from a local artist; chances are it won't be quite as expensive as a more recognized piece, and the couple will have an original from an up and coming artist. Are they in to theather? Treat them to a night on the town. Dinner at a upscale restaurant and tickets to a play would make great 50th anniversary gifts.
If you happen to know that they are wine lovers, shop online and try to track down a bottle from the year they were married. Have several bottles delivered along with a note from a local chef that will come in and cook dinner for them; they can enjoy a romantic night at home with each other, or family and friends.
