Finding themed anniversary gifts for gay and lesbian couples for years 51-59 is incredibly challenging. While the first few decades offered up yearly anniversary themes, during the later years we only have themes for 5 and 10-year milestones. Still, we’ve come up with some beautiful ideas for you for these “golden” years!
10 Sweet Anniversary Gifts For Gay and Lesbian Couples for Years 51 to 59
As mentioned above, after the 50th anniversary, everything starts to be a little different, and we have one main theme for the whole decade. These are quite literally the “golden years,” as gold remains the theme throughout.
However, since we don’t all have infinite budgets to lavish the happy couple with pricey gold-centric gifts every single year until their diamond anniversary (60 years), we’ve come up with some more affordable and practical gifts to fit the theme during these next 9 years. Take a look!

3. Rainbow Gemstone Tree
While these gemstone trees have spiritual significance for those who believe in the power of gemstones, they’re also just plain beautiful!
I love this one in particular as an anniversary gift for gay and lesbian couples, not just because of the subtle rainbow pride design, but because it brings together the different colors and stones from past anniversary themes.
