How about the movie tickets plus a gift card to a restaurant you know they like? Even if it's not a chain restaurant with a readily-available gift card, you can contact a local restaurant that they really like and chances are good that they will have a gift certificate available.

I usually don't do anything. I consider my parents' anniversary to be strictly between the two of them. I did make an exception this year, however. My parents celebrated their 40th anniversary, which I consider to be a special achievement, so I treated them to a very nice meal.

@mkentosh: Just don't send them in the mail, best to deliver those in person ;)

I usually just send mine a card or call. Their anniversary has always been their thing. If you send a gift every year that you know they appreciate and use, why change it? Unless it's a "big" number anniversary, then add dinner or maybe a dessert place gift card? Really though, why mess with a good formula?

See if you can find a "Premiere/Dine-In" movie theater around. They provide dinner, a movie, and a very nice atmosphere.

AMC Dine-In Theaters are pretty nice. You might be able to find a similar service if none of those locations work.

Good luck.

@pitamuffin: Thanks for the idea. The only time they really go out to eat is when we have family gatherings (which is more often then not). Getting them a gift card to a restaurant we would all good to would be.....well...brilliant!

@mkentosh: You shut your dirty little mouth!

@curtisuxor: There is a similar place actually ten minutes form their house. They went once and liked it. SOLD!

As always thank you woot! community for the help.

I see my parents on an almost daily basis, so I just tell them "Happy Anniversary". They are in the position of buying whatever they want, so I figure letting them know that I love and appreciate them is worth more than a gift. They recently celebrated (quietly) their 62nd anniversary. YMMV.

Bless them with your presence, raid the fridge and then hang out watching PPV till they tell you to go home.

Fortunately (or unfortunately) I've never had this problem since my parents got divorced when I was 5.
