What to look for when buying diamond anniversary gifts
The important thing to remember when buying a 60th wedding anniversary gift is that it’s not all about diamonds. I mean, it is, obviously, but what I’m saying is you don’t have to empty your savings or rob a bank in order to buy a sparkly rock to celebrate 60 years together.
What follows includes suggestions for diamond-themed 60th wedding gifts that capture the essence of the occasion without leaving your wallet empty once the celebrations are over! We’ve also thrown in some diamond wedding anniversary gifts that don’t quite stick to the theme – just in case you’re not one for tradition.
60th anniversary gifts for him
Despite being together for a whopping 60 years, you might still struggle to know what to get him for your diamond wedding anniversary. Often when men reach an older age, they either have everything already or they just buy themselves whatever they want. Unfortunately, this can make shopping for the ideal 60th wedding anniversary gift for him a whole lot harder.
Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up our top picks for the best diamond wedding anniversary gifts for your husband. So, take your pick:
They say diamonds are forever, and after 60 years you might feel that’s how long you’ve been together! So what better 60th wedding anniversary gift for the man you love than a wristwatch as you continue to rack up the years, with beautiful timepieces available to suit every budget?
If you can, aim for something gift boxed and bearing a quality strap to ensure he’ll be delighted to open and wear it.
