Wedding Gift Ideas

My 61 year old father is getting remarried this fall and I am looking for some ideas for a wedding gift. They own a home, are financially secure, so there is not much that they "need". If anyone has any ideas to share I would love to hear them! Thanks!

I almost always buy the couple a crystal photo frame (usually an 8 x 10) that they can put their wedding photo in. We have an Elder-Beerman store that usually runs them on sale often. They are very heavy and excellent in quality.

How about several gift certificates to very fine dining establishments?

Since it's your father's wedding, how about an album of sorts commemorating their relationship? If you scrapbook, even better, but a simple photo album with a few notes from you about their special relationship could be very nice. I think most parents appreciate the thought and time you put into gifts rather than how much you spend. Think of something you can create that is personal and meaningful. Good luck! :)

Under similar circumstances, we got together with family members and close friends and made a money tree. Everyone just put an envelope with their contribution in it and attached it to the tree. Then, they signed a card that was provided. The money was spent on the couples's honeymoon.

How about a nice "run-away" weekend -- reserve a room some place that offers special entertainment or add a brochure for events in the area. Flowers in the room, a bottle of wine or a fruit basket would all be nice additions. Plan something they wouldn't normallly do on their own. If they can't use it, give them my email address -- I would love to "run away." (Just kidding!!) Whatever you do for them, I am sure will be great because you are already being thoughtful!!
