Something They Wouldn’t Normally Do
A romantic dinner, or night out on the town, with maybe a show or trip to the opera thrown in for good measure. A spa day, with afternoon tea, a case of wine or something they’ve been meaning to buy for the house but finances have prevented the purchase.
Digital Photo Frame
These have taken gift giving by storm and are a great way to put lots of favourite images together and have them on show in one place. Gather together some photos of family, grandkids, friends and the happy couple, and upload them onto the digital photo frame for them to enjoy.
Vouchers for a top restaurant
If you think they’d enjoy dinner in a top restaurant but aren’t sure when they’ll be able to go, give them a gift voucher they can spend any night of the year. They’ll enjoy treating themselves to a slap-up meal without worrying about the bill at the end.
A Coupon Book
Give them lots of options to choose from and enjoy all through the year. You could include a coupon for mowing the grass, washing the car, doing the dishes for a week, take them out for dinner, or watch the latest blockbuster at the cinema.
Renew Their Vows
Give them the opportunity to renew their vows, After all the words they said to each other 25 years ago are not quite so relevant, a quarter of a century down the line. They’ve spent the last decade or so devoting themselves to the upbringing of you and your siblings, and now you’re all older, it’s time for them to think just about themselves.
Time for the Family to Get Together
Over the years your family has grown, with cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews all over the globe. Why not take the silver wedding anniversary of your parents as an opportunity to get everyone together and relive the fond memories and strengthen the family bonds? Some of your relatives may have been out of the picture for many years, and your parents will appreciate the chance to see them all again. It doesn’t have to be an extravagant affair, you could even hold the event in your home, but of course there are plenty of other places more fitting such a celebration. Facebook is a great way of keeping or getting in touch with distant relatives, and you can organise the event without the knowledge of your parents, making it an even more memorable gathering of the clans.
A Video Compilation of Memories
If you think that it’s going to be difficult getting everyone together why not ask friends and relatives for some video messages, that you can gather together and give to your parents as a silver wedding anniversary gift? What a great way for people to show the happy couple the influence they have had on many different lives.
Remember all those handmade gifts you made when you were younger, and how proud your parents were when you brought them home from school? You were very proud of that tea towel covered with your handprints, or that card you made from colourful bits of shiny paper, and your parents would have been thrilled to bits with the love and effort you put into each and every handmade gift. Just because you’re older now, doesn’t mean you can’t do it again. Although this time you might be able to make something worthy of a place in a local gift shop or artistic display.
