These golden gifts are unusual and quirky 50th wedding anniversary gift ideas, and make lovely alternatives to the more traditional gifts of jewellery or cut flowers.
One of the best things about giving a living plant as a golden anniversary gift is that the recipients can enjoy watching the plant grow and develop for many years to come. The parallels between your gift and the strong and successful relationship the couple have grown won't go amiss. Much more thoughtful than a bunch of flowers!
