This might take some time but you can always ask someone in your family to help you out. These favors can be personalized in lots of ways or you can add your initials on the gift boxes. Key chains that have a sunset or a palm tree charm are also suitable favors for this theme and they are every inexpensive as well.
Maybe some cups or some shot glasses with palm tree designs on them are also something to consider.

Who thought that time would go by so fast and you would reach your 50th wedding anniversary? And yet the time is here. You have managed to survive the passing of time and to surpass the obstacles that appeared in your path in the course of your marriage. You have done it all. You’ve laughed, you’ve cried, you’ve seen your kids grow up and start a family of their own. And now, after 50 years of marriage, here you are, alongside the man you have vowed to love and respect for the rest of your life. Such a day requires the appropriate celebration, and what can be more suitable than throwing a party to which all your dear ones are invited.
And the best way to make your guests comprehend your lifetime commitment to your spouse is to give unique 50th wedding anniversary favors. These necessarily have to incorporate the number of years you have spent together, because it is precisely this that makes the occasion so important. As this anniversary is also known as the gold wedding anniversary, it is a good idea to have the favors in this color.
The gifts themselves do not have to be over the top and ideas from actual wedding favors can be used. You can have your picture framed in a golden frame on which the number ‘50’ is engraved or you can order 50th anniversary key chains. Elegant candle favors can also be used for the occasion because they symbolize the romantic life you have lived throughout your marriage and how your love has not faded away.
Any kind of favor you choose will be perfect because it will be a constant reminder of the love that has brought the two of you together and has kept you so for the last 50 years.
Wedding anniversary favors should please men and women, regardless of their ages. Silver is the traditional material that is associated with the 25th wedding anniversary, so you can use this idea also when choosing wedding favors. Iris is the flower that is recognized as the token of this anniversary and, same as silver gifts can be found at affordable prices, iris embellishments aren’t costly either.
Edible sweets have always been the first choices when it came to favors. Choose Jordan almonds, chocolates or candies and fill favor boxes with them. As favors should be related to the event and sweets have nothing in particular with this sort of event, you should find the solution in the boxes. Choose silver boxes or boxes that have silver link hearts embossed on them. As iris is the other symbol of this wedding anniversary, look for boxes that have irises painted on them or be courageous and paint them yourself.
Make miniatures of the cake which will be served at the end of the reception and decorate them with white and silver frosting. Place each cookie in transparent cellophane and close it with a silver ribbon, obtaining delicious 25th wedding anniversary favors.
Offer guests coffee mugs with their names engraved on them. Choose them to match your anniversary theme by opting for silver color and embellish them with silver tulle, then place inside candies that are individually wrapped in silver paper.
Offer something that is not only symbolic, but also practical, something that will remain a keepsake of the event forever. Give female guests heart-shaped cookie cutters, and make male invitees glad by offering them heart-shaped wine bottle openers. Decorate them with silver ribbons, to continue with your anniversary idea.
If only close friends and relatives are invited at your party and you can afford buying wedding favors that are expensive, consider looking for silver pendants and cufflinks. Small objects don’t cost a fortune and sometimes can have discount prices. Decorative items can have iris shapes and with a little luck you can find floating candles that are shaped as an iris. Also, soaps with iris paintings, iris extract or with iris scent are available and can be wrapped in silver tulle if you want to combine both elements that define the 25th wedding anniversary.
50 years of matrimony is a major celebrating reason and thus every close friend and relative should partake in the event. As the event holds a great symbolism, most couples choose to follow the tradition and use gold as the main color of their decorations and party favors. Favors shouldn’t be expensive and their creation or purchase shouldn’t employ much time, as they are symbolic and aren’t usually offered at wedding anniversary parties. How complicated and expensive they will be is entirely up to you.
A wedding anniversary party should always remind of the ceremony held years ago and can even have a theme through which you can recreate the atmosphere from your wedding reception. Choose decorations that are similar with those that adorned your reception hall 50 years ago, offer the guests the pleasure of listening to the same music that enchanted them half a century ago and don’t forget to choose similar favors as well. Recreate your original wedding favors with a new twist. For example, if Jordan almonds were offered at your wedding reception, this time you can opt for the same sweets and you can put them in gold favors bags or use gold ribbons to embellish the wrapping. You can create special thank you cards, with gold designs and you can use gold ink to write the message. Labels can also be easily created using the same principles and these can totally change the appearance and meaning of a simple wine bottle for example. If you didn’t have wedding favors 50 years ago, you can choose your favorite sweets and create edible wedding favors that will delight the invitees.
If you want to focus on this anniversary’s token, make a thematic 50th wedding anniversary party that has as central point the color gold. Fill gold organza bags with caramel candies as these are excellent 50th wedding anniversary favors, but if you can afford to offer something more expensive, you could opt for gold-colored picture frames with photos from your wedding reception.
Personalize toasting glasses with your names and the date of your wedding and offer them to the guests as a reminder of the special occasion. If you want to offer something special that can be used to decorate your guests’ living room, you can make gel candles by using champagne glasses.
