Giving the gift of roses on an anniversary is pretty traditional, but since roses just wilt and die shortly after they’re received, they’re really not a good symbol for ever-lasting and growing love. These beautifully preserved roses will never wilt and require no care or water.
After years and years together, there really aren’t many surprises left, and maybe that’s a good thing. But that doesn’t mean that all surprises are bad. Show your parents how much people still like them by getting all those people to hide in a room and startle the crap out of them.
Flowers are a lovely gift but for an anniversary, we’re not sure how they’d feel about something that will inevitably wilt and die. So, for fans of the floral, surprise them with this crystal rose which will be in bloom forever, much like their love for one another, even after all these years.

When the dust bunnies have started to form into felt snowballs, the stovetop still has remnants of last year’s Bolognese sauce and that stubborn ring just won’t budge from the toilet bowl, it’s time to call in the big guns. Gift your parents with the citrus scents of clean and let the housekeeping professionals restore shine and hygiene to the Mom and Dad cave.
Nothing says “I love you” better than the ultimate aged bottle of liquor! Celebrate the enormous accomplishment of surviving decades together and toast to the years of bliss that lie ahead. Who needs another pearl necklace? A tie clip? Forget about it! Set this trophy atop the mantle and revel in success.
Who says the Stars of Fame can only be found in Hollywood? A few decades on Earth certainly qualify your parents for this celestial honor and who better to bestow them with this gift but you? Take the quantum leap and celebrate Mom and Dad's anniversary with a personalized jewel in the sky.
Some things get better with age and some would argue that relationships are one of them. One thing that definitely gets better though, is a fine whiskey. What better way to marry up two things that get better with time than with a personalized whiskey barrel? It’s a gift that they’ll no doubt appreciate if they need a stiff drink at the thought of all those years behind them…or all those years ahead!
Personalized gifts are always the best. A picture frame is one thing; it’s something else entirely to show them that you know exactly what they want to look at by loading it with pictures that will make them happy. Just make sure you get it right. Otherwise it comes across as a weird attempt at mind control.
