Good morning from sunny South Africa! I hope your Friday mornings are going well & that wonderful weekends lie ahead of you!

Ladies, I need suggestions: My parents celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary soon & I am at a loss for a gift. They are downsizing and de-cluttering and so preferably not "things".

We will have them over to dinner & I thought of presenting my mom with an arrangement of different yellow & cream roses. Any other ideas for special touches? - my dad is diabetic, by the way.

Please, general ideas - I don't have access to USA shops.

Thank you!!

Oh wow, congratulations to your parents! That is wonderful! My suggestion would be to gather photos of them together and/or with family members and put together either a photo album or a photo montage on a disc.
I love pictures & I know that is something I would love. Maybe your parents would too.
Good luck to you!

That's a great idea - fits with my aim to try & make it all self-generated & not buy too much stuff!

How about a donation in their name to their favorite charity?

I love the photo Idea, & the donation to charity. Also the gift certificate out for dinner, give them more than one? or a higher amount so they can use it more often? (or a general gift card, so they can use it for what then need as a need arises?)

    How about  recollecting the time period they first met , could use computer to print out pictures, duplicate a moment they shared  together.  Wrap these pics around some gift  your offering
