Daylily Gift Suggestions

daylily gardening
The scientific name for daylily is Hemerocallis which comes from the Greek words “beauty” and “day.” Each bloom only lasts one day. However, there are many stalks, each one having groups of buds, so the flower blooms last for weeks.

Because each bud don’t last long, these beautiful flowers are not appropriate as fresh-cut flower arrangements. However, if your significant other has a green thumb, a daylily plant would be a wonderful and lasting twentieth anniversary gift. You can find a large variety of daylilies at your local garden store or you can order plants online from Bloomingfields Farms.

Pick Your Own Bouquet has yellow, white, orange, ivory, toffee rose, amber, coral and brick-red silk sprays you can mix and match to make your daylily gift bouquet. The best part of a beautiful silk bouquet is the flowers last forever. Go to the PYOB website to order your silk daylily sprays.

If you would like a daylily photo, note card or prints, check out Red Bubble, a site that offers daylily photos and other print options.

Emerald and Yellow or Golden Diamond Gift Suggestions


Emerald has been a prized jewel for over six thousand years. There are records of emeralds being sold in the markets of Babylon, and gems being worshiped by the Incas. The Greeks associated emerald with Venus, the goddess of love and believed that emerald protected lovers from unfaithfulness. Aristotle wrote about the perceived powers of emerald to help the wearer in business deals and to prevent epilepsy. Different cultures believed emerald is powerful in a variety of different ways. Some believed it stood for fertility, others thought emerald soothes the soul and gives the wearer the power to foretell the future and warn of impending danger.

Today, emerald is still a highly-prized stone and popular choice for jewelry. If you are thinking of emerald jewelry as gifts, there is a large selection of rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets on Jewels for Me.

Yellow or Golden Diamond

A diamond infused with nitrogen has a yellow to brown hue. These yellowish diamonds, while not as popular as the clear one, are much rarer. Generally, the richer the color, the more worth it has.

Joden has a beautiful collection of modern and antique yellow diamond rings, earrings and pendants.

Celebration Ideas


The twentieth anniversary should be celebrated as a big event in a couple’s life. It is a milestone that should be shared with friends and family, with either a fancy dinner or a big party. Whichever celebration it is, enjoy the time with those who have been supportive of your twenty-year relationship.

As a more intimate celebration, a romantic trip to a tropical locale or a mountain retreat is also appropriate.
