Would they appreciate a really nice bottle of champagne or something along those lines?

Maybe a service or an “experience”? Like massages or cooking classes or a gc to a nice restaurant? 

My cousin bought her parents 8 hours with Merry Maids…They liked that.

I like a the gc idea BothCoasts stated above.  Even if they’re not sentimental, maybe a nice card or note to go along with it?  It’s doesn’t have to be long, but short and sweet expressing thanks would be good.

If your parents are wine drinkers at all (or even just beginners), you could try a monthly wine club membership for a few months.  I gave my parents and the in-laws a few months membership from the Cellars Wine Club after my wedding.  There are lots of options, such as reds only, whites only, red + whites, and you can choose exactly how long you want to sign them up for as they charge by the month. Both sets of parents loved it, and my parents even ended up buying memberships for my stepmother’s parent’s for Christmas afterwards.

I gave my mom and stepdad season tickets to a chamber music series, because they love chamber music. It was perfect because it showed thought and attention to their tastes, but wasn’t just another thing for them to deal with. And it gave them 4 really nice dates over the course of the season! They tried a different restaurant before each concert. They loved it.
