The 60th wedding anniversary is named the "Diamond Anniversary," and after that one has passed, the celebration of following anniversaries might fade in comparison. However, you should cherish each individual year and celebrate the anniversaries as they come, even if they are not on nice, round numbers. There are many good gifts you can get for a 63rd anniversary, depending on how much you want to spend, and if you want to get something practical, decorative or fun for the couple.
A Trip Package
A vacation is a very good anniversary gift idea for any couple. Depending on what the couple likes, you can get them a trip to the countryside or to a country to which they always wanted to travel, or a weekend in the spa. Put the reservation papers in a card with the number 63. Get a disposable camera and a photo album. Write "Happy 63rd Anniversary" and the date on the album. Wrap the photo album together with the camera and the card. The couple can take pictures on their trip and put them in a special anniversary album.
If the couple has been married for 63 years, they probably have a list of activities they share already. However, trying new things never hurts, and mutual hobbies help keep couples close. Buy the couple a class or workshop series for their anniversary. Get them a class you know they will enjoy. For example, if the couple likes food, buy them a cooking class. If they like crafting, get them a pottery class. If they like to be active, enrol them in a dance class.
If the couple has a big family, they might enjoy a family tree as a gift for their 63rd anniversary. Research the family history for both of the partners and include everybody to at least the third knee in the family tree. After you have all the names gathered, get somebody to carve the tree into a wooden board, or hire a professional to make a nice graphic design of the tree. Frame the family tree and include the date of the anniversary and the number 63 somewhere on the picture.
The couple might enjoy items they can use at home. Consider purchasing china, fancy glasses or decorative things, like vases. Think about what the couple needs and what will work well with their home's general decor. You can get these gifts engraved with the number 63, but that isn't necessary. The couple will still think about the occasion whenever they look at or use your gift.
