do they have a charity or cause that they contribute to? maybe a charitable donation would be nice.

i also like the idea of a gift certificate for a restaurant, that way they’ll go out and enjoy a nice dinner together.

@MojitoMeg:  I think treating them to an experience, rather than just giving money, would be nice. Dinner at a unique restaurant? Scuba lesson? Sky diving? A couples massage? A theatre show? A concert? Something specific that they can do together and remember 🙂

Brainstorm around unique gifts involving your special talents and/or their specialized hobbies.

@MojitoMeg:  I’d donate to a charity on their behalf, something they would like (we’re donating to a wounded soldier charity for a friend’s wedding, who is in the airforce).

We are specifically asking for no gifts, and we mean it – we do not want gifts! A nice card would be nice though. If you really feel obligated to give something I also like the idea of a gift certificate for a restaurant.

I actually wouldn’t do charity unless you know it is a charity they love. Plenty of seemingly innocent charities that you love may be offensive to them. 

I would give a gift certificate to a local theater company or sports team. People love experiences and getting hockey/baseball tickets on a night of your choosing would be great.
