Older people always enjoy a cruise.
If all of you chip in it won't be too expensive.

Get something from this amazon list:

Most people of the age over 50 are not really tech savy... so giving them something from that will make you happy (since you are at their house a bunch) and them happy, since its lighter, better quality on the eyes, and is HD!!

I know it's nothing you can find on Amazon, but we got my parents a handmade wooden keepsake box from this craftsman we saw. His work is absolutely GORGEOUS...exotic woods fit together perfect to make simply stunning boxes. Then, we filled the box with photos, trinkets, and keepsakes from their years together.... like class rings, ticket stubs, etc. It was a hit, and now they keep their beautiful keepsake box in the living room so everyone who visits can see it and their tangible memories it holds inside. My mom always says if the house catches on fire, that's the one thing she wants to grab! The artist can be found at

From experience: a couple enjoyed the huge party, but were flooded with clocks, picture frames, and restaurant gift certificates - more than they could use. If the couple isn't wealthy, money is appreciated. If they are both healthy enough to travel and so inclined, I agree (as would my aunt and uncle) that pooling money for a cruise or some other nice trip would go over well.

For my grandparents on their 55th anniversary, I took all of their old photos and put them in order (Starting with childhood, their marriage, their kids, grandkids, etc...) on a DVD and set it to Josh Groban's "When You Say You Love Me" and Mariah Carey's "Hero"

It was hard work doing it myself, but it was so worth it. They adore it. You could always take them to a professional if you have the money.

They still play the DVD at every family event. I highly recommend it.

Search "collectible stamp sheet" for a lot of ideas, pick a topic they like and you can frame it.

Pay for a great party at a hotel, rent a limo to drive them and invte all the closest friends and family that you can afford tdo pay for. Surprisingly, hotels like Doubletree (my experience) are totally set up for this type pf event and can cost $10-$15 per person, have non hosted open bar(PEOPLE PAY FOR ALCOHOLIC DRINKS), a nice band for a short while after lunch/dinner and someone to video the whole thing, along with interviewing all the guests with well wishes. We did this for my parents 50th and they loved all the attention and pampering with the Limo. People came from across the country!
