Some 50th anniversary gifts for parents may include a double picture frame to display the wedding picture beside the anniversary picture. Personalized gifts, such as wine glasses, wine bottles, throw pillows or a gold-trimmed anniversary plate elegantly commemorate the golden anniversary.
A brass anniversary clock with a crystal pendulum is a traditional but sophisticated anniversary gift to celebrate the passage of time. The modern version of the anniversary clock runs on batteries. The couple may enjoy a special trip to a tropical island for snorkeling, to the Rocky Mountains or a romantic getaway in Paris, France.
A 50th anniversary set of candles may include a personalized pillar candle trimmed in gold and two tapers. Some couples like to light their candles together in a simple candle-lighting ceremony.
