Diamond Wedding Anniversary Gifts

Updated on September 10, 2014

Diamond Wedding Anniversary - 60 Years Married!

A Diamond Wedding Anniversary is really special, both for the couple concerned and their families and friends. Here are some diamond anniversary gift ideas. Let's face it, in an era of easy divorce and easier remarriage, how many people even think of staying married a lifetime?

Don't you think it is wonderful that two elderly people can live happily together for 60 years? Some people don't even live to be 60 years old, let alone be married that long, so what is the secret? A successful marriage, let alone a Diamond Wedding Anniversary, takes effort and commitment. That the hazards of life, such as widowhood or divorce, have been successfully navigated for 60 years is a wonderful thing. Let's make that day really special!

Sadly my father died recently so my dear parents will not be celebrating that wonderful anniversary! The 56 years they shared were a gift to us all and an inspiration to many. But what very special gifts can you give to celebrate the diamond wedding anniversary for the very special event it is?

Knowing my folks, the champagne would have flowed freely, but probably from a magnum bottle. I don't think dad would have liked a champagne fountain much, he was so respectful of fine wines and an expert on them too.

The Secret to a Happy Marriage

The secret to a happy marriage however long it may last is unconditional love and support; accepting that nobody is perfect and working together in a partnership that celebrates that acceptance will make all the difference. For those who do not stay married, perhaps the problem is expecting perfection and also expecting the rosy, romantic glow of first love to remain the same years down the line. When you look at an elderly couple who have been together for a lifetime they will still be very much in love, but it has moved beyond the physical into something really special. They will almost know what the other is thinking and they will cherish each day together as a gift.

Do you know anyone celebrating a diamond wedding anniversary? - What do you think of spending 60 years together?
