53rd Anniversary Gift Ideas

Gift Ideas for 53rd Anniversary:


traditional anniversary gift: new experiences

modern anniversary gift: chocolates

The promise, “I do,” takes on a whole new meaning after 53 years together.

I do…appreciate all that we’ve been through.
I do…love growing old with you.
I do…look forward to many more years to come.

The couple celebrating their 53rd wedding anniversary now is just a more mature, deeper-in-love version of the couple who repeated their vows all those years ago.

Yet inside, they’re still the same young lovebirds.

They’re full of joy and contentment. They’re flush with love and affection. And they’re secure with a commitment and dedication that’s seen them through both good times and bad.

Which is why it’s most appropriate that jasmine is this anniversary’s flower of choice.

Meaning “I promise you,” the jasmine flower was once used to make necklaces that were exchanged by couples on their wedding day, just as today’s couples exchange wedding rings. And a traditional Asian belief is that jasmine enters the soul and releases its emotions. Then again, in ancient Egypt, legend has it that Cleopatra used drops of jasmine oil to seduce Mark Antony—quite successfully.

Let’s cheer this special couple and their long-term union that endured for 53 beautiful years.
