Our grandparents hold a special place in our hearts and when they’re celebrating a milestone such as an anniversary, it’s the perfect time to shower them with gifts and show them just how much they mean to us.
Tips for celebrating an anniversary with grandparents
If your grandparents’ anniversary is hitting a grand milestone, it’s important to consider the gift wisely. Moments like these only come around once in a lifetime, which is why it’s completely acceptable to really push the boat out. Since family is everything, you’ll want to give them a gift to show them just how special they are and just how much they mean to you. To help you celebrate their countless years of happiness, love, and marriage, we’ve put together a list of perfect anniversary gifts for grandparents, all of which are guaranteed to make their hearts melt…
A personalized album
A great gift to give your grandma and grandpa on their wedding anniversary and a good option if you wish to get the entire family involved is a personalized photo album. Simply ask each family member, including grandchildren, children, and cousins, as well as friends and colleagues, to share their favourite snaps of the happy couple along with a sweet, heartfelt message, before adding it to a photo album.
A custom calendar
Similar to the above, a custom calendar filled with snaps of the happy couple is another great gift for grandparents celebrating their wedding anniversary. Each month will share a different memory and this gift will likely take pride of place on their kitchen or office wall.
If your grandparents enjoy gardening and class themselves as green-fingered connoisseurs, a plant can be an ideal option and is the gift that can keep on giving year after year – especially when cared for correctly. Choose your grandparents’ favourite plant or alternatively, something that promises beautiful blooms, a vibrant scent, and a pretty colour. If you really want to go the extra mile, opt to place the plant in an embellished vessel or pot.
A bouquet of blooms
You can’t go wrong with a bouquet of anniversary flowers that say ‘congratulations’ or ‘I’m thinking of you’ is a great gift to give your grandparents to mark their special occasion. There is also a bloom to suit all. Whether you opt for their favourite flowers or choose a bloom symbolic of love and happiness, a hot hued, sweet-smelling bouquet is guaranteed to put a smile on your grandma and grandpa’s faces, especially when delivered directly to their door. Online florists such as Serenata Flowers offer the same and next day flower delivery too, meaning you can ensure the blooms arrive in time for the big celebration.
A pair of crystal champagne flutes
If your grandparents are celebrating a momentous anniversary, gift them a beautiful pair of champagne flutes, along with a bottle of their favourite bubbles to toast the celebration with. This is a sweet, heartfelt, and special gift. Every time they get the glasses out to use, they’ll think of their love for each other.
A helium balloon
You can buy helium blooms brandishing messages such as ‘congratulations’ or ‘happy anniversary’. These make great gifts for those celebrating their anniversary, especially if you’re planning on throwing a surprise party for the happy couple. Simply fill the venue with balloons, blooms, and loved ones!
A hamper is another option to give the romantic couple, as they can use it to create a romantic picnic – either in their favourite spot or in the home. Hampers brimming with both sweet and savoury treats, such as chocolates, biscuits, jams, chutneys, teas, ales, and wine are guaranteed to suit all tastes; even if your grandma and grandma have very different ideas when it comes to what food and drink they enjoy.
A photo family tree
What better way to express the magnitude of their love than with a sentimental gift such as a photo family tree? Each branch features a portrait of their children and grandchildren. Whenever there is a new addition to the family, simply add a photo to another branch! Your grandparents will love seeing their legacy grow and can hang this feature in pride of place in their home.
