About 58th Wedding Anniversaries
If your parents are celebrating their 58th wedding anniversary, it is useful to note that an appropriate gift should ideally fit into two categories: customised and something they can use together.
The best anniversary gifts for parents are not necessarily traditional options, but rather those geared specifically to their tastes and special interests. Almost certainly, this year’s gift will be a celebration of their time together, so it has to be something they both will enjoy.
For this 58th wedding anniversary there are no historical symbols. You are, therefore, free to express your admiration and love with gifts that intimately reflect the 58 years they have been married.
58th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas for Him, Her, Parents and Grandparents
After so many years together the celebrating couple will probably have developed an interest they enjoy together, such as golf or bowls – and something related to these activities would make a great gift.
You could book a round of golf for them at a course they have not played before, followed by lunch or dinner. Maybe one right out of the top flight – like Wentworth in Surrey. Or treat them to tickets for a memorable day of close-up action at this year’s The Open Championship.
If bowls is their game, you could buy tickets to a major competition in their local area, or really surprise them with a fully-paid trip to the next world championships.
Maybe not this year if it’s in Australia – and the gift budget is tight! Although, if all members of the extended family were to pool their funds, you could still make their dream bowls trip of a lifetime come true.
If your parents or grandparents are members of a club, and have special friends there, invite them to join you and other family members for a surprise party.
Many couples of this generation would have enjoyed dancing when they were younger, and possibly still do, so what about arranging a party with a cover band playing songs from that period?
As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.” Quoted by: Ben Hogan

Fun Facts about the Number 58
- As we are talking about longevity… 58 years matches the number of letters in the Welsh village on Anglesey Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (also spelt Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll and commonly known as Llanfair PG).
- The first verse of a song by Lee Brice, “Love Like Crazy”, features a reference to 58. “They called them crazy when they started out, said seventeen’s too young to know what loves about, They’ve been together fifty-eight years now, That’s crazy.”
The most important thing is to take the time to think carefully about what your parents and grandparents would truly like to do for their 58th wedding anniversary.
Some will still be keen for a bit of lively action, or an exotic getaway; others will prefer a quiet celebration at the local pub with family and close friends. It’s their day, so make sure it’s all about them.
