50th anniversary gifts for an Irish couple could include the colour gold to symbolise the anniversary and green to symbolise their Irish heritage. Think about gold jewellery with emeralds, bouquets of yellow flowers with green grasses or clover as an accent, and green wineglasses with golden tone champagne. Plan a party with a gold and green colour theme.

Claddagh rings are Irish rings decorated with the symbol of a pair of hands holding a heart that is topped with a crown. The hands of the ring symbolise friendship, the heart symbolises love and the crown symbolises loyalty. The claddagh is a traditional Irish wedding ring. Buy a set of matching gold claddagh rings for the couple. You can also buy gold rings or pendants with Irish knots and other Celtic designs.

A Trip to Ireland
Plan a trip to Ireland for the couple. Get your entire family and friends of the couple to chip in and purchase plane tickets, drivers, hotel rooms and tours. Type up an itinerary and give it to the couple wrapped as a gift. If they have health problems or are uncomfortable travelling alone, someone should accompany them. Either a family member or a friend of the couple could go with them or you could make the trip a family vacation.

An Irish Blessing
There are many Irish blessings for marriages, homes and anniversaries. Find one you like and print it out on speciality paper. You could also have it hand written by someone skilled in calligraphy. Another option is to have it made into a design and sewn into a finished needlework. Take the blessing and have it professionally famed in a gold frame.

Coat of Arms
Research the couple's coat of arms and get it made into a print, banner or dinnerware. Frame a print of the coat of arms in a green or gold frame, or hang a banner on a flagpole or in the garden. You can get plain dinnerware painted with the coat of arms and then rimmed in gold to symbolise the 50th anniversary. Get a set of dinner plates or coffee cups and buy silverware with an Irish design to go with them.
