49th wedding anniversary gift ideas

Forty-ninth anniversary gifts

Theme: Copper

Inspired? Create and share with #hallmark.

For spouses
Budget:

Give anything with a copper finish—earrings, a teakettle or picture frame.

Splurge:

If they like to cook, treat them to a new set of copper cookware.

For another couple

Give a copper saltshaker and pepper mill set. Include a note that says, “You two just go together.”

Give a recipe for Moscow Mule cocktails with a pair of the copper mugs traditionally used to serve them.
