    50th wedding anniversary gift 13th May 17 at 10:30 PM
    Can anyone help with ideas for above.
    It's for my best friend ( and hubby). Don't want to spend much as it would embarrass them, just want to acknowledge the occasion really.
    Any ideas?

    Have you looked into trees/plants as gifts? They work really well for the bigger anniversaries. Here are some ideas: https://www.tree2mydoor.com/special-occasions/anniversary-gifts/50th-gold-anniversary.html

    Well I tend to get a pretty frame and print off a nice poem to go in it. Also they have pretty 'love bird' salt and pepper sets on Amazon quite cheaply which are nice novelties.

    Traditionally its gold, doesn't have to be real gold though.
    Etsy always have nice small gifts for a traditional anniversary.

    Have you thought about just buying a bottle of wine, hopefully they're not teetotal! but purchasing a special personalised 50th wine label - very low cost but very memorable and thoughtful - Etsy do this kind of thing

    You could even make your own label. I did a huge inflatable champagne bottle with a personalised label and balloons on the top for bubbles - this was for a 60th anniv and they certainly only had one of those!
