    What Is the 60th Anniversary Gift?

    Traditional and Modern 60th Anniversary Gift

    You may have always wondered which anniversary is the diamond wedding anniversary and, well, you're officially here! The 60th anniversary is known as the diamond jubilee and boy does a marriage that has lasted six decades deserve to be commemorated by such a special gemstone. Never fading and ever-stunning, diamonds are one of the strongest materials on earth, making them the perfect stone to represent long-lasting love. In addition to their durability, diamonds also symbolize light and faithfulness—a fitting tribute to a rock-solid relationship.

    Other 60th Wedding Anniversary Symbols

    In addition to being the traditional and modern material, diamonds are also the 60th anniversary gemstone. The official color of the 60-year wedding anniversary is (obviously) diamond white, a milky, opalescent hue. Meanwhile, orchids are the 60th anniversary flower (and yes, some have white petals) and stand for strength, beauty and love.

Each canvas displays a map of the stars from a meaningful date and location of your choosing (we suggest the couple's wedding day) and can be further personalized with their vows, the lyrics to their first dance song or a heartfelt message. It'll have them instantly reminiscing about their wedding night all those years ago.

    Alternative 60-Year Anniversary Gifts

    While diamonds give you a helpful jumping-off point for 60th wedding anniversary gift ideas, they aren't the be-all and end-all suggestion. There are plenty of other equally thoughtful and unique gifts to give your loved ones as they celebrate 60 years of wedded bliss.

    Wedding Waltz Personalized Art

    Custom artwork is always a unique gift idea, but this one is extra-special as it commemorates the couple's first dance. This framed Art Deco-inspired artwork by Chicago-based artist Alexander Doll can be personalized with the couple's wedding venue, date, city and names. You can even choose the dancing couple's hair and skin tone. For an extra sentimental touch, play their wedding song as they unwrap the gift. Who knows—they may be inspired to go for another twirl.

    Custom Family Storybook

At the end of the year, all their responses will be bound into a memory book for a cherished keepsake and touching anniversary gift.

    Potted Orchid

With the right care (water every one to two weeks) this anniversary gift could last years.

    Snack Subscription

    Mouth snack subscription 60th anniversary gift

    It's a classic dilemma: You visit your parents only to discover everything in their cupboard is expired and there's nothing to eat.

Mouth sells subscription boxes stuffed with a whole range of goodies (think: cocktails, pickles, cheese or mouth-watering snacks), so browse through all of the options and pick what best suits their taste preferences (and yours).
