How to Celebrate a 51st Anniversary

There are no standard symbols for the 51st wedding anniversary. As a result, it allows you to give thoughtful handmade anniversary presents that combine a range of concepts. For example, consider giving a gift basket containing items that both spouses would enjoy. A nice idea would be to give a photo-based present such as a handmade scrapbook or a framed personalised poem.

Anniversary parties are always popular and enjoyable for any celebration. This year, after the excitement of last year, you may organise an informal open house for the day with family and friends coming together to celebrate.

Alternatively, host a surprise party at your favourite restaurant, or a club. You could also alter the scenery and depart (or even jet) for the weekend.
