According to current statistics, the average age of women on the day of marriage in 2021 was almost 32 years old - men, on the other hand, were already around 35 years old. For comparison: In 1991, most women were still 26 years old on their wedding day and men were 28 years old. This makes it clear that more and more couples in Germany are getting married later. Which isn't a bad thing in itself, it just reduces your chances of reaching your 50th marriage anniversary. Nowadays you should appreciate it all the more when a golden wedding anniversary is celebrated. Below we present ten suitable gift ideas to you.
What do you give a couple who have been married for 50 years? Assuming that the household is complete after such a long time, there is often a lack of suitable ideas. So why shouldn't the couple decide for themselves what they need - by giving them a small (or with friends and family) large monetary gift. Nicely packaged in a small money box.
A particularly beautiful gift idea for couples who have a garden is this romantic rose arch made of weather-resistant metal. It is particularly suitable as a trellis and climbing support for roses, clematis, passion flowers and many other plants. Properly staged, the arch transforms into a colorful sea of flowers over time.
This champagne bottle should be a small but nice gift for the 50th marriage anniversary.
