25th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

Avoid getting unwanted gifts with our 25th wedding anniversary gift ideas.

Being married for 25 years is a great accomplishment for couples. Many families like to celebrate this milestone in their loved ones’ lives by giving them a 25th anniversary party. The family invites the couple’s closest friends and relatives to help them celebrate the grand occasion.

While most friends and family members are honored to help the couple celebrate, they are bewildered at what type of gift they should bring to the party. Most couples at this stage in marriage already own the typical gifts that would normally be bought for anniversaries.

Although some invitations to parties such as these ask that no gifts be brought, it is always nice to help honor the couple’s marriage with a token of love.

A nice anniversary gift idea for a 25th anniversary party is a gift given collectively from friends and family members. Gather a group of people to help split the cost of a trip for the couple. Even couples that do not enjoy traveling can find pleasure in a night away from home in a luxury suite. Choose a bed and breakfast or a relaxing chalet. This is a gift that most couples will enjoy but would never purchase for themselves.

Another great anniversary gift idea for a 25th anniversary party is a family photograph. What better way to show how much you care about your loved ones than with a family photo? Weeks before the party, gather relatives for a trip to the photographer. Have the picture developed and framed to give to the couple at the anniversary party.

Memory books also make wonderful anniversary gifts. Gather photos from the couple’s past and place them in a memory book. Memory books are very popular and can easily be made. There are many embellishments and crafts supplies available on the market to get you started.

Older couples often enjoy remembering their past. Another great anniversary gift idea is a photo restoration. Find an old and worn photo of the couple (perhaps a wedding photo) and have it restored and framed for them.

If you do not have access to the couple’s photos, try a gift that will help them always remember this special day. A nice engraved 25th wedding anniversary Christmas tree ornament would be the perfect gift to help any couple remember the special milestone in their marriage.
