17 May Anniversary Gift Ideas For Parents & Grandparents
Parents and grandparents celebrating their milestone wedding anniversaries deserve to be recognized in a special, thoughtful way. The 25th, 50th and 60th wedding anniversaries are the big ones, however many couples will also celebrate on their 30th, 35th, 40th, 45th and 55th anniversary years.
The 25th wedding anniversary, or the silver anniversary, along with the 50th anniversary, or the gold anniversary, are two of the most well-known and celebrated milestone anniversaries dating back to the Middle ages when a husband would give his wife a wreath of silver or a wreath of gold to commemorate the big occasion. The 60th diamond anniversary became popular during the Victorian era after Queen Victoria celebrated her 60th anniversary of accession to the throne with a Diamond Jubilee.
These three anniversary years — the 25th, 50th and 60th — should never be forgotten. The silver, gold and diamond anniversary milestones call for big celebrations and beautiful, thoughtful gifts for parents and grandparents.
