i think a gift certificate to a nice local restaurant would be nice.

If you feel close enough to do so,  go ahead.  Generally the rule is gifts should flow downwards in the chain of command and not up, but it depends on the dynamic and relationship.  I’m pretty close with my boss and wouldn’t think anything of it,  but would not with some of previous bosses.  If you don’t,  then a nice congratulations card will suffice.   Otherwise, Restaurant gift certificate to have a date night? A basket of gourmet treats?

Depending on your office culture/politics, it would be very thoughtful to acknowledge the marriage. I agree with the previous poster that it could be something experiential or consumable, like a gift certificate to Open Table, especially if they’ve lived together with kids that long.

If the office is casual enough for you to gift booze, I’m all for a nicer bottle of booze/wine/champagne!

lori85 :  if you feel like gifts are a no no in your work place, what about taking him out for a group lunch to celebrate?

Gift giving between bosses and subordinates can be weird, and sometimes there are company policies…
