<y future in laws are ce;lebrating their 50th anniversary next month. Looking to get a gift from myself and my parents. Only they are impossible to shop for because they don’t go out, they don’t need anything and they don’t really need $ so cash is not what I want to give. Looking for some type of figurine maybe? Lenox or Swarvoski (she loves Swarovski figurines). ANyone know of anything off hand thatw ould be nice other than the typical commemorative plate?
Thanks in advance 🙂

A figurine doesn’t really seem like a gift for the two of them. I don’t know many guys who are turned on by crystal figures on a shelf.
Could you organize with Fiance and his siblings, if any, to make them a book of memories? It could be done in a golden or champagne colored album. You could ask his family to scan and send pics, written memories, notes from their friends and people who were at their wedding.
Put together a CD of music that was popular in their era? Their kids should know some of their favorite songs. You can buy gold CD’s.
Get their wedding photo blown up on a canvas art print for them. You can ask them to do it in a gold/sepia toned wash.
Is there a restaurant or hotel with “gold” in the name in New York? to whcih you could present a gift card.
Get them tickets to a Broadway play or musical that has some meaning for them-My Sinatra? Radio City Christmas Show? Tony Bennett?
I realize the last two work if they live in New York or nearby.

All AWESOME ideas! Did I mention they don’t listen to music, aren’t romantic, have no family they talk to and don’t like to go out. FRUSTRATING!!! He is making a dinenr party with the few people we could gather to come down and theyw ill probably complain about him taking them out (whereas my parents would be touched and so happy to go out and party!).
I like the photo canvas… I was thiking maybe something like that. All she does is shop on QVC and he really couldn’t care what/if they get anything. So its so difficult lol. The only passion they have is for the NY Yankees but I don’t think it would be easy to find a Yankees 50th wedding anniversary anything lol.

If they share a passion for the Yankees, and don’t have season tickets, I would get them a pair of tickets.
Anniversary gifts should be something they like, not necessarily traditional.

True now if only they would like something other than sitting home. Thanks for your help 🙂

My grandparents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year and we got them a beautiful clock and had it engraved with a message about their timeless love. They loved it. It’s practical but commemorative as well.
