About 68th Wedding Anniversaries
As family and friends congratulate you on reaching your 68th wedding anniversary, you will be able to share distant memories of a vastly different era, albeit one highlighted by experiences that many couples are also sharing in these modern times.
When you were married you both affirmed the optimism, durability, passion and love of the human spirit at a time when the world was in recovery. You formed a bond that was never broken in times of hardship and rationing, building a wonderful life and family together. Those good times, enjoyed with family and friends, remain a gift for all to share as you celebrate 68 years of married life.
Gift Ideas for the Couple
Carefully thought out gift choices are an integral part of celebrating wedding anniversaries. They reflect the strong commitment couples give to each other, displaying their undiminished affection, love, support and encouragement.
Personalised anniversary gifts, especially, provide you with the assurance that your present will be unique – poignantly designed for them and them alone.
There are no traditional symbols for this 67th anniversary, so you are free to choose the special flowers you know are your partner’s favourites, or ones that will be lovingly appreciated by your parents or grandparents.
Are you in charge of planning a party this year? If so, why not make it a surprise celebration and arrange for all the family to be at the restaurant when they arrive for dinner?
If the couple are wine lovers, check online (or in a well-stocked local bodega) for a vintage of the year they were married, accompanied by a silver-framed photo of their wedding day.
If they are foodies, but are not keen to travel away from home this year, you could arrange for a gourmet meal to be delivered, complete with a waiter to dress the table and serve the food and wine.
Alternatively, you could treat them to a show or theatre performance, and escort them in style by booking a limousine – an excellent gift idea for grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Most importantly, simply make sure this 68th wedding anniversary celebration is full of love, laughter and joy.
