If “diamonds are forever” then what an entirely suitable anniversary title this is for a relationship that has truly withstood the test of time.
Things to consider when thinking about Diamond Wedding Anniversary Gifts
Like the last great milestone anniversary, (the Golden 50th), the 60th should be another great opportunity to spend time with family and friends. This time family and friends should of course take the initiative and organise everything for the happy couple. Make it all as easy as possible. There are plenty of ways to make a simple celebration great and dont forget that having all the younger relatives make an appearance at some point is very important.
If the couple live in a Commonwealth country it is possible to organise a congratulatory message from the Monarch and this would be a fantastic surprise. In the USA a similar message can be organised from the President (refer to notes in the Golden Anniversary section)
After 60 years of marriage there will be inevitably be lots of emotion, tears of sadness as well as joy – make the celebration simple and dont forget the old saying ~
