The 50th wedding anniversary is known as the "golden" anniversary. Many free gift ideas and craft projects can revolve around the golden theme. Other meaningful projects reflect on the couple's life together, their family or their shared accomplishments.

Organise photos from the couple's life together, starting from as early as possible through to their 50th year of marriage. Use the photos to create a unique scrapbook by adding personal notes and anecdotes for each picture. Because the 50th is the golden anniversary, write the notes with a gold-coloured marker or gel pen.
Gather photos of the couple, their children and their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. On a large sheet of paper, draw a tree big enough for all the photographs. Glue the couple's picture on the top of the tree, their children below them and their children's children and grandchildren below them. Alternatively, place a large picture of the couple in the centre of a large sheet of paper and place their children's photographs around theirs. Then, place the grandchildren's and great-grandchildren's pictures around the edges of the paper.
Surprise Pot Luck Party
Invite friends and family to help celebrate the couple's life together by bringing a dish of food to a surprise party. Call each guest instead of sending costly invitations, and ask grandchildren or great-grandchildren to make party decorations. The couple will surely be glad to see their friends and family together.
Have grandchildren and great-grandchildren work together on a poem about the couple. Children should focus on what makes their grandparents special to them and cite moments they have shared together. After the poem is done, have the children break the poem up into segments and recite it for the couple.
With the help of family and friends, throw the couple a mock wedding to "renew their vows." The mock wedding can be a complete surprise, or organisers can choose to involve the couple in the planning. With the couple's help, make the wedding as close as possible to their original wedding. Children can get involved in the process by making and hanging decorations and acting as ushers for guests. The oldest grandchild can even perform the ceremony.
