30th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas For Parents
When two people get married, they want to be together for a really long time. However, very few people reach important milestones in their married life, and some of the most important ones include the tenth anniversary, the twenty fifth anniversary, the thirtieth anniversary and the fiftieth anniversary. Picking out gifts for any anniversary is something that takes time and a lot of thought. You are picking out a gift for someone you truly love and care for a lot, which is why you can’t just pick up something random. You have to put in quite a bit of effort, and more than that, you need to put in love and affection into whatever you choose to gift.
Very few people know that there is a name given to the special anniversaries; for instance, the twenty fifth anniversary is called the silver anniversary, the fiftieth is called golden anniversary and the sixtieth is called the diamond anniversary. Did you know that the thirtieth anniversary is called the pearl anniversary? So if you have parents who are getting ready to celebrate their pearl anniversary, why not you say it with pearls!
Ideas For Gifts For Pearl Anniversary
There are plenty of gifts that you can give to your parents, which will make them happy and which they will treasure for a lifetime.
Inspired By Pearls
While the most obvious gift in pearls would be jewellery made using pearls, here too you can get innovative. Think in terms of multiple strands of pearls for your mother or matching ear rings that go with a simple pearl chain. A pearl bracelet would also be a nice idea, something that your mother would love. It would be interesting to get a neck piece or bracelet made with different coloured pearls. How about a little box made of mother of pearl, in which your mom could keep all her trinkets? Get a similar one made for your father, in which he could keep his business cards or cigarettes.
These days you can even find beautiful watches with pearl straps, which would be an ideal addition to you mother’s wardrobe. However, you can’t gift pearl necklaces and bracelets to your dad, which is why it might be a great idea to gift him a watch which has a face made out of mother of pearl, or even has small pearls embedded inside.
Let’s Get Lavish!
Just because it is the peal anniversary, it is not necessary that you stick only to pearls, because you could always gift your parents diamonds and platinum. Matching watches would make for a great gift and if they have diamonds on the dial, it would be even better. You could choose diamond or platinum ear rings for your mother and have a similar design on cuff links for your dad.
If you want to do something a little more lavish and exclusive, you could think of getting something personalised for your parents; something that has pearls associated with it. For instance, you could get them photo frames with pearls on the edges. Put pictures of your parents or even of your entire family and watch your parents’ faces light up!
Or how about a special album, which has pearls on the cover page? Put all the special photos of your parents and your family that you know they will cherish looking at, again and again. Another simple yet tasteful idea would be to get them key chains, with pearls on them, which they can use to embellish their car or home keys. And if you want to go all out, you could custom designed champagne flutes, with pearls in the stems. There could be nothing more personal and lavish about this gift, if you also get your parents’ initials monogrammed on the same!
Another great idea is to buy them a box of chocolates, which is personalized with their names or initials. Make sure that you are creating a chocolate medley using flavors that your parents like. Add a bow on the gift wrapping of the box, which is either silver in color or better still has pearls embellished on it.
Vases and center pieces made of crystal are always valued as gifts, and it would be a fun idea to fill either with pearls of various colors, including the pink and black Tahitian pearls, and your parents can decide what they want to do with the same. They can get them stringed as neck pieces or as bracelets or even to add to the decor of their bedroom.
Simple Yet Sweet
There might be those, who might not be able to spend on personalised gifts, which is why there are always other options, where you can still maintain the pearl symbolism, without breaking your bank. How about sending your parents to a restaurant, for dinner, where they can dine on fine oysters? If you can go a little beyond that, you could send them off on a holiday, to an island or a beach resort. It would be even better if you could arrange a diving trip, where they just might find an oyster on their own! For such trips, countries like Australia, Japan, China, India, the Philippines and Tahiti would be ideal.
A party is always a fun idea and would be a great gift too, especially if you invite all the family and friends that your parents are fond of and ask them all to come dressed up in their ‘pearly whites’! Plan a menu that has a a lot of white food and arrange for a cake that has vanilla frosting, and edible pearls as the decoration.
And if none of these seem to fit into your budget, how about just buying them small things like a scarf or a top in the colour of a pearl? You could buy your parents matching clothes in off white or any of the colours that pearls are available in.
All said and done, your parents love you for who you are and how much you love them – what you give them as gifts is just the cherry on the icing. Make sure that you are there, physically and mentally present, on that special day of your parents, and celebrate their love and togetherness with them! There could be no greater gift than the love and respect that you have in your heart, because at the end of the day, it is love that matter the most!30th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas For Parents,
