How to Celebrate a 66th Anniversary
Only a very select group of couples is able to have such a successful long marriage. So it’s time for parties – no matter how modest – because that’s something very few people are able to celebrate.
If travel is your typical anniversary celebration, this may be a good year to plan a family vacation along historic Route 66, stopping at such renowned attractions as the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo (Texas), which is a well-known public art installation. This would be unquestionably a unique family holiday and a fantastic present that will undoubtedly produce wonderful new memories for the wedding anniversary photo album.
If that is a bit too exciting, you may also enjoy the evening at home with a bottle of champagne, your favourite take-away, and a night on the sofa watching a classic road trip film.
66th Anniversary Celebration Ideas
Here are some different ways to celebrate your 66th wedding anniversary:
- Embark on a road trip with the family.
- Quiet party at home with a bottle of champagne.
- A stay at home movie night.
- Retell and remember important stories.
66th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas
You may make a memory tree as an inexpensive and meaningful present. Find a large branch or a tiny fake tree and fill the branches with photographs of important occasions in the pair’s life.
Another great idea could be gift cards for their favourite stores, gift certificates to dine at restaurants they love, or ticket vouchers to shows or events they might enjoy. Alternatively, inquire with your family members if they would want to pool their money and send the pair on a vacation to a dream destination that has been on their list for some time.
If you want to give jewellery as a gift this year, you may use any gemstone or precious metal as a gift since there are no traditional symbols associated with this year’s anniversary. Unusual gemstones make stunningly unique jewellery, so how about the sphene, which draws incoming light and transforms it into a rainbow of colours? In this way, sphene is similar to a diamond, but with a natural green or yellow-green colour. Widely considered to be one of the finest and rarest gemstones, sphene is soft and unsuitable for rings, but it can be made into exquisite pendants or cufflinks.
Bouquets of flowers always make a wonderful gift. There are no symbolic flowers or colours associated with the 66th wedding anniversary, but you could ask your florist to create a bouquet of 66 flowers encompassing all the colours of the rainbow. Now that is certain to bring an appreciative smile to the faces of your special couple.
