What to look for when buying diamond anniversary gifts
The important thing to remember when buying a 60th wedding present, 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 gifts that capture the essence of the occasion without leaving your wallet empty once the celebrations are over!

60th anniversary gifts for him
They say diamonds are forever, and after 60 years you might feel that’s how long you’ve been together! So what better 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.
If the man you’re buying for spends a lot of time in the garden, a sundial is another great option for a diamond anniversary gift that speaks to the years you’ve been together and marks the occasion with class. You can find personalised sundials for as little as £49.95 at sites like The Metal Foundry.
Other diamond-themed gifts that can strike a chord with gents include diamante cufflinks and lighters, which you can find online for reasonable prices, often with personalisation optional.

Diamond anniversary gifts for her
Buying a diamond for the love of your life on your 60th wedding anniversary should be fairly straightforward. You can find no end of necklaces, bracelets and rings encrusted with diamonds that will bring a sparkle to her eyes, but if jewellery isn’t her thing there are plenty of other options.
For the green-fingered lady in your life, geometric diamond glass vase terrariums make elegant homes for succulents and other small indoor plants, while you can also find garments that subtly incorporate diamonds, such as this personalised diamond scarf.
Other beautiful diamond-themed gifts she will appreciate include heart-shaped diamante compact mirrors, that you can have engraved with a personal anniversary message at many online retailers, or personalised diamante heart keyrings and lockets that your loved one can carry with them as your love grows old gracefully.

60th wedding anniversary gifts for couples

Papercut designs have become popular in recent years as an affordable yet eye-catching way to create a piece of personalised artwork to commemorate a particular occasion. Personalised papercuts with your own anniversary message make for a timeless gift that looks great on the wall.
Domed crystal paperweights capture the shimmer of a diamond in a gift that can be engraved with a message of your choice, once again without hurting your wallet.
