50th Anniversary Gifts

I will be going to California in September for a family reunion and at the same time I would like to surprise my in laws with something special for their 50th anniversary. I am limited to what I can do as I don't have access to stores there and what I can bring. Besides photo albums, do you have any ideas that would make their anniversary a special event along with the reunion?

50th Anniversary Gifts

On my parent's 40th Anniversary we children made up a photo album starting with pictures of my parents as children and we made up captions. For example we said "There once was a girl named Emily and a boy named Art". Then on the next page we showed a picture of their engagement and said "And then they met and got engaged". Then pictures of their wedding, etc. Then pictures of each child and their marriages and their children. My parents and everyone loved it. (06/15/2010)

This is what I did for my brother's 50th anniversary. In a dollar store I found tall gold gift bags, gold foil, and gold "Easter" grass. I got from the bank 50 of the gold
Sacajawea dollar coins. I wrapped each coin individually with the gold foil. Then I put the grass and wrapped coins alternating them in the gold bag. They had to go through the whole bag to find the coins, and unwrap them to spend them. It was family and a fun gift. I hope you may find some use of this suggestion. (06/17/2010)

This is a lot of fun. You can custom make a fake newspaper, featuring all they have done together over the last 50 years. I have suggested this a lot, and I always tell people if they can, get two. That way, if they want to display each side of the page, they don't have to have a large copy made.
You can put things in there like their wedding, births, civic awards, jobs, travel, and all that they are in a newspaper form.
Check it out and see if you can do this for them. They would love it! (06/17/2010)

Get family members to send you photos and frame them for table decorations, any year will do. The more the merrier.
Good luck. (06/22/2010)
