48 years as man and wife may not be considered quite as significant as the impending 50th anniversary, but is still an opportunity to show your spouse how much she is loved and appreciated.

The tradition of celebrating wedding anniversaries with the giving of gifts can be traced back to the Middle Ages. Husbands would give their wives a garland made of gold or silver, depending on the anniversary year. Gold for a fiftieth wedding anniversary, and silver for twenty five years. A number of other themes were chosen over subsequent years, until 1937, when the Jewellers of America devised their own list of themes. However, even then there were still a few gaps. But you’ll be pleased to know these have now been filled, and every anniversary year has its own special theme.

  • Stylish sunglasses – This is possibly the most popular option for people looking to give optical goods for a 48th wedding anniversary gift. Pick a top quality pair, from the latest designer and your gift will be appreciated for years to come.

Spend a romantic evening gazing at the stars

The theme of optical goods doesn’t sound very romantic, so what are we suggesting? A night gazing up at the starry sky through a telescope. The telescope is the optical good in the equation, and you have two choices. Buy one yourself, pack a picnic and settle down somewhere secluded to watch the night sky unfold. Alternatively, you may be lucky enough to live near an observatory. This is optical goods on a much grander scale, but many of these locations offer stargazing evenings. Giving you both the opportunity to spend time together learning more about the planets and stars.

Floral gifts will always be popular for wedding anniversary gifts

yellow rose for the anniversaryYou may have got out of the habit of bringing your wife flowers home from work, so this year restart the tradition with a floral gift for her. There are no specific flowers linked with a 48 year anniversary, which means you’re completely free to choose whatever color and variety you think she’d prefer. There are hundreds of different varieties, and more colors than a rainbow. You’ve been married now for almost half a century, so you should have a pretty good idea of what she’d prefer.

Floral gifts do, however, have a downside. The beauty of a living bloom very quickly fades. Even with a living plant for the garden there is no guarantee it will last forever. An everlasting token of your affection would be a gift from Eternity Rose. Techniques have been perfected to preserve the beauty of a rose bloom forever. Single blooms, glazed and dipped in gold, silver, or platinum. Or glazed rose petals crafted into delicate jewelry. All of which make a beautiful memento of this anniversary year.
