Silver wedding anniversary gift ideas you can easily make yourself
Does your mom still have a keepsake that you brought home one day from school? Gifts made by their children are always held dear by parents. Just because you’re a little older now, don’t think that this has changed. Did you make your mom and dad a card using your handprints when at nursery school? It wasn’t the right time for it to be given as a silver wedding anniversary gift but you could always give it a go again. Get some of the family together, all ages, and make a modern day equivalent and present it in a silver frame.
Gather together some photos, pick a few to be copied and have them printed onto t-shirts, pillowcases, cushion covers, or made into a quilt. You could also put them into an anniversary scrapbook. There are plenty of blank scrapbooks that just need some mementos to fill the pages. By creating a scrapbook you can make a timeline for the couple’s life together and it’s the sort of gift they can enjoy adding to in future years.
Alternatively make a time capsule, and twenty five years on you’ll enjoy looking back on your silver anniversary, as well as all the years that went before. Fill the capsule with some of your memories and ask your spouse to add theirs.
A cool idea if the anniversary falls close to Christmas is to make some silver decorations for the Christmas tree. That way their silver anniversary will be remembered far longer than just one day.
