If you’re looking for some unique and impressive 50th Anniversary gifts for gay and lesbian couples, pull up a seat! Unlike gifts for years 41-49, which were so hard to find ideas for, the biggest issue with the 50th is that there are almost too many options! We’ve narrowed down your sea of choices to our top ten picks. Let’s get started!

10 Impressive 50th Anniversary Gifts for Gay and Lesbian Couples
The 50th anniversary theme is gold, gold, and more gold! That goes for the traditional and modern gift, as well as the gemstone (or, in this case, precious metal) and the overall color.
The only outlier is the flower. Violets are the traditional 50th wedding anniversary flower. However, as Our Everyday Life explains, they’re challenging to work with. So, yellow roses take their place as a modern alternative.
With all of that in mind, let’s check out some amazing gifts for your favorite couple’s 50th anniversary party!

If your favorite couple loves flowers, then this vase can be a wonderful gift for their 50th anniversary. It’s beautifully made from authentic milk jugs.
You can find these on Etsy, then grab some beautiful yellow roses from your local florist. They’ll have amazing flowers the day of their party and a special vase to refill for years to come!

A beautiful option for gay, lesbian and even opposite-sex couples, this sweet (and super affordable) frame from Amazon shows off the happy couple both on their wedding day and 50 years later.

Another somewhat pricy option that is perfect for a sibling group gift, this personalized engraved crystal sign is absolutely gorgeous.
Wouldn’t it look so lovely on their fireplace mantle? Customize the name, date, and even add a “given by” to it if you want. I’d leave that last one off, though, unless you’re presenting it as an award. That could actually be a fun idea!

Gold rose measures approximately 8.5” tall and is crafted by hand in our traditional forge. Each flower is both durable and uniquely beautiful - a gift that will be celebrated and cherished for the next 50 years.
8. Personalized Canvas Tree Art
This beautiful canvas tree art is such a unique idea! Add personalization, including first and last names as well as their wedding date for “established on.”
It comes in 13 different colors, but the gold is just right for the 50th anniversary. I love that the birds aren’t “gender specific,” (in other words, one isn’t bigger or more colorful than the other), so it’s truly a perfect gift for all couples.
