Celebrating Your Fifty-fifth Anniversary

After your golden anniversary, you have reached another milestone – achieving fifty-five years together. This is probably not an anniversary you are going to celebrate with a big gathering of friends and family. However, you don’t want the fifty-fifth anniversary to slip by without making sure your lifetime partner knows you still appreciate him or her and the special relationship you share together.

The fifty-fifth anniversary is known as the emerald anniversary, and both the traditional and modern gift categories are emerald. If your partner still wants and loves beautiful jewelry you are in luck, as there is a large selection of emerald jewelry almost everywhere. However, if you know that a jewelry gift won’t cut it, you need to look for other gift ideas along the lines of an emerald-themed one. For example, how about a trip to Ireland – otherwise known as the Emerald Isle – or Seattle, Washington a.k.a the Emerald City? Either trip would create a wonderful experience and new memories to share.

Maybe your partner would be most happy with a special flower arrangement or favorite flowers delivered on your anniversary. Everyone loves flowers and no matter how many times given as gifts, they are always appreciated. Make sure you include an appropriate card. You can order flowers online from FTD.

Another good gift idea for the partner who has everything is a gift basket of bath salts, body washes and other sweet-scented items. Take a look at the options on Bed, Bath, and Beyond. You can pick and choose among the many beauty and bath products or order one of the pre-packaged gift sets.

Another gift option is a box of candy. A big box would certainly be appropriate for the fifty-fifth anniversary. The note or card you include with the candy is another opportunity to say, “I love you.”

Alexandrite Gift Suggestions

Named after the Russian Tsar Alexander II after its discovery in the emerald mines in the Urals, this rare gemstone became the national stone of Tsarist Russia. The remarkable feature of alexandrite is its ability to change color depending on the light. The stone shines green in daylight and red in incandescent light. Russian master jewelers loved alexandrite and created lots of alexandrite jewelry for the Russian royal families. Later, in the 19th century, Tiffany jewelry designers made a series of exquisite and very popular alexandrite rings. You can still find these heirlooms on eBay and at estate jewelry stores and websites.

Jewels for Me has a large selection of alexandrite rings, pendants and earrings for both men and women. If you want to get your partner a fifty-fifth anniversary gift of alexandrite jewelry, this website should give you some good ideas.

The Celebration

Plan a trip just for the two of you, or a group trip with your closest friends and family. If getting out of town is not an option, consider a dinner for two at your favorite restaurant. You can also do a special dinner at home with good food, a bottle of wine, and relaxing conversation. Time spent just to enjoy each other is an anniversary well-spent.

Maybe this is the anniversary you finally put into writing all the reasons you love your partner. Say it with prose or poem, what matters is that you’ve wrote what you really wanted to say. You could always put your poem or prose on a card that is tucked into your anniversary flower arrangement or inside that box of candy or basket of bath supplies.
