  • What if you make them a family tree? Just their family together? The kids and the grandkids.

  • How about writing a poem from the heart and put it in a nice frame. They will cherish it forever.

  • When my parents were alive we always got them something for the yard, they were always making things look nice in the spring. They loved the outdoors. Just try to think of something that they both love to do together...

  • I wouldn't want jewelry or something to sit around the house. We are trying to cut down on things that sit around. :) I'd say the restaurant gift certificate sounds very good. or if they like plays, a season subscription to a local playhouse. Or depending on how much you want to spend, a weekend at a bed and breakfast within reasonable driving. For something for the house- new pillows, new sheets or linens, New electric blanket.

  • I think a picture is a great idea...also the things remembered was a great one too. My parents have been married for 37 years.

    Nowadays, it really is a lovely thing!!
