My parents are celebrating their 50th anniversary next month and are throwing themselves a big bash! My dilemma is what to give them for a gift.
My sister wanted to go in together and get them an "experience." Unfortunately, her family is rather well-to-do, and mine is rather not. (I've been out of work for 2 1/2 years.) So, on their own, her family is sending them in to NYC by car service, meeting them there for dinner, taking in a Broadway show, and putting them up overnight in a midtown hotel. If my sister and her family were not all meeting my parents and enjoying these activities with them, I might have been able to afford to split the cost of dinner and a show. However, I really don't have the funds for my family to participate, along with paying for my parents, too.
So now I need help figuring out what I can give them. My budget is around $200. I'd like to do something more personal than a gift card, and I really would prefer not to get them "stuff" for their home.
