If your parents are coming up on their 25th wedding anniversary, you probably want to show your appreciation, so here are some 25th anniversary gift ideas for your parents that will help them celebrate their special day in style. Commonly known as the "Silver" anniversary, the 25th anniversary is a very special event for any couple. Even though it would be easy to fall back on the silver motif, there are ways to get creative with the gift you end up giving them that may or may not include a silver element. One thoughtful way to make any gift extra special is to add an element of customization to it. Whether or you decide on jewelry or balloons, if a gift is personalized, it brings a thoughtfulness to the process that goes beyond a boring gift card or generic cake.
Nothing will ring in the occasion of your parents' anniversary quite like a set of silver bells. These classy decorative pieces can easily be engraved -- each one with one of your parents' names -- and hung above a prominent door or mantel. For a romantic touch, consider adding a sprig or two of mistletoe between the bells. Then, when your parents walk under the bells, they have to kiss!
If your parents have an adequately sized outdoor garden, consider presenting them with a charming anniversary garden bench. To personalize it and mark the anniversary occasion, affix a plaque that has both of their names, the date and a mention of the anniversary itself. If you really want to get creative, you can carve the exact same information into the bench itself.
For a trip down memory lane, present your parents with a framed photo from their wedding, 25 years earlier. For the frame itself, use silver or sterling silver.
Whatever you select, make sure it is personalized specifically to your parents to add the most meaning to the gift.
