A couple who has been married for 70 years is truly amazing. A 70th wedding anniversary celebration should not be overlooked! What are suitable gifts and celebrations for this special 70 year anniversary couple?
To celebrate 70 years of marriage would be a miracle and a feat. Choose something that celebrates that 70-journey and all the fruit of it. Enlist all the descendants (children, grandchildren, great-grandkids, cousins, etc) to submit memories, photographs, drawings, newspaper headlines on scrapbook paper and I would compile a "This Is Your Life" type of memory book for the couple. Also give them a DVD, a retrospective on their life before and throughout their marriage with family members speaking of and to them. A gift like this acknowledges the anniversary couple respectfully.
A great 70th wedding anniversary gift idea is to contact friends and family of the couple for the purpose of collecting photos and memory items that include the anniversary couple. These pictures can be used to create a patchwork quilt for the couple. It is a great way to revive memories and bring special joy to couple celebrating 70 years of marriage.
Make sure that any gift is a memorable one. Now is not the time to give a thoughtless gift. One idea is this: There are pictures now that from a certain angle change to another picture. It would be so nice to have their original wedding picture and then what they look like today together.
Getting together the family for a dinner would make a nice 70 year anniversary present. Somebody from the family will prepare a video with the history of the family included the sad and the happy moments. At the end of the video saying does not matter how hard or how easy the life have been, whats really matter is that the couple have been together for 70 years and will be until the end.
I hope that these 70th wedding anniversary gift ideas helped you. These are only meant as a starting place for gift ideas, maybe team up with a few family members and have a brainstorm about it?
