47th Anniversary Traditional Gift – N/A

Since there is no traditional gift for this anniversary, we thought we’d find something a bit different. How about a beautiful photo frame in which you can place your most treasured memories? 

47th Anniversary Contemporary/Modern Gift – Books

There is always a book to fit any recipient, so no matter what your loved one likes, there will probably be a book that they would like and appreciate for the rest of their lives. If they enjoy theatre, a beautifully bound edition of Shakespeare’s works might be a good option, or if they prefer the classics, perhaps Bronte novels or Dickens books would make a lovely gift.

Of course, there is no need for the present to be too intellectual. If the pair enjoy a good detective novel, Agatha Christie or Sherlock Holmes novels may be ideal, while if they like humor, some well-known TV comedy scripts in book form might delight them. You could also get the pair a matching journals, or a lovely scrapbook to store their precious memories from throughout the years? Why not frame a meaningful or romantic passage from a beloved novel in a beautiful, personalized frame as a memento of the occasion? Perhaps you could brighten up your marital home with new bookcases or attractive bookends?

Photography books are also a great gifting idea. There are so many to choose from. Great to leave out on your coffee table and to flick through when you’re relaxing.
