One unique 50th birthday gift idea is a personalized magazine cover, or a personalized front page of a newspaper.
Let's start by trying to find gift ideas for a 50th birthday. Here are a couple of suggestions. One unique 50th birthday gift idea is a personalized magazine cover, or a personalized front page of a newspaper. Get a picture of the birthday person and have a headline created about them. You can even come up with an outrageous story if you are looking at doing a personalized paper.
You could also take a trip to the hometown where the birthday person was born and take a picture of a special place that you heard them talk about a lot. Whether it was their high school, an ice cream shop, a movie theatre, or their favorite ball park, capture it on film or on a digital camera, and have the photo placed in a nice frame.
...you may want to try to get that special person an autograph from their favorite celebrity.
With auction sites making it possible to get your hands on just about anything you desire, you may want to try to get that special person an autograph from their favorite celebrity. We all have a favorite celebrity or two; whether it is John Wayne, Patrick Stewart, Tiger Woods, Greta Garbo, Michael Jordan, or Bono… finding an autographed piece from their number one star is a very memorable gift.
Scratching your head trying to figure out what unique 50th wedding anniversary gift you can get for that special couple?
There are many options depending on your relationship with the celebrated couple. Perhaps they are your parents, or maybe you are looking for something to give your spouse on this special day.
If you are the child of the special couple that is celebrating their 50th anniversary, you need a unique gift idea. Gather some of their most cherished memories, such as photographs, postcards, tickets to events, newspaper clippings, and have them bound together in a gold memory book to make a truly unique 50th wedding anniversary gift.
Since you know well in advance that your parents are going to be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, consider saving up for the year prior to their anniversary and take them on a family vacation. It could be a cruise, a trip to a nearby vacation spot, or a visit to an island paradise like Hawaii. This is a unique gift that will bring everyone closer together and create new memories.
One paper gift is an old newspaper from their hometown on the day or year that they were married.
Though the 50th wedding anniversary is most often celebrated with gold and violets, you might want to consider incorporating a first anniversary gift idea. First anniversaries are celebrated with paper. One paper gift is an old newspaper from their hometown on the day or year that they were married. You might even try to find a postcard to a place that means something to the couple.
Believe it or not, you can arrange a greeting card from the President of the United States.
If you aren’t one of the spouses, and you are not a child of the couple, what options do you have as a friend or other family member that loves the couple? Believe it or not, you can arrange a greeting card from the President of the United States. Naturally it is beneficial if the couple supports that current President. Know that you will need to send a request to the White House at least six weeks prior to the anniversary date.
You can also create a "gift of gold"; a gift where using gift baskets comes in handy. Fill them with items such as books with gold lined papers, gold wrapped coins, a Gold Blend coffee, Golden Grahams, and gold napkins. You can also line your basket with either gold paper or paper that is covered in violets.
Be creative, what makes a gift unique is when the gift comes from the heart. Spend some time thinking about what you would like to get the 50th wedding anniversary couple or the special person that is turning 50, and the gift will be well received and unique.
