The golden wedding is an important milestone: a happy event that not everyone can celebrate. That’s why  traditional gifts for 50th Wedding Anniversary  must be as special as the event itself.

Usually occasions like these are celebrated with the whole family in full: the 50 years of marriage are one of those events able to bring together all relatives, at least the closest. The ways to celebrate this anniversary are varied: a lunch, a dinner, the renewal of vows … Although it is not a real wedding but a party, there are many couples who at the end of the event give their guests a small candy. Sometimes even just simple sugared almonds: as always, what matters is the gesture. The favor is in fact given to thank all the people for having taken part again in an event so important for the couple. 

The guests in turn give gifts to the couple, to celebrate the union again. What is given as a traditional 50th wedding anniversary gifts?
Usually it is customary to make gifts for the home, such as precious ornaments. This is because it is unlikely that a couple with 50 years of marriage behind them may need “useful” objects for the home such as a food processor. Some also make separate gifts for her and for him, but given the occasion, the idea of ​​making a unique gift for both of them is nice.  

As for the budget to be dedicated to a similar gift, the style of the couple and their spending possibilities must always be kept in mind, however, being an important occasion, the budget is usually over € 100. Given the desire to make a precious gift, many people prefer to join and take an important gift as a group. This is certainly a way forward and advisable where you cannot manage to give the gift you want on your own.
