Anniversary Gifts for a couple married 10 years? Ideas or Suggestions?

Hi...my hubby and I were invited to a formal anniversary party.  No one in the family was actually included in the wedding but most (not all) of the family has been invited to this Black Tie affair.  Anyway...it's at a upscale venue so I'm thinking that they are definitely expecting a gift.  Do I get a gift card? Cash?  A Gift?  They are not newlyweds so I kinda feel like cash would not be appropriate.  They own a home and have kids. They are throwing this party for themselves.  My hubby and I have been married 12 years so I understand wanting to celebrate.  My husband and his family feel like none of us should bring gifts because it's not a wedding.  I was NOT raised like that I and would not be comfortable showing up without a gift.  Plus, we were told that they don't believe in alcohol so there will be a CASH BAR available in a different room.  I'm not a drinker...but my hubby's family is....the words CASH BAR in this family might as well be profanity LOL!!

How much do I spend? What do I get?  Does anyone know what the symbol for 10 yrs is?  I think it's tin or aluminum.  What the heck to you buy that's tin or aluminum LOL!!

How about a gift certificate for a meal at their favorite restaurant?

I would get them a nice Metal picture frame.  If you have a picture of them at their wedding put it in the picture frame.  Or just  buy metal picture frame and have something engraved.  They can put a picture from their 10yr. anniversary in there.

 Just go and have a good time.
