Maybe a gift card for a couple’s package at a spa?

It depends on how much money you want to spend. I’d probably go with something that gives them a nice time together. A gift card to a nice restaurant would be the cheapest, a gift card to a bed and breakfast would be mid-range, and if it’s someone you really care about perhaps you could get together with some others and buy them a cruise trip. has an option where you buy a certain amount of money on a gift card that can be used at over 4000 B&B locations. That way you’re still giving them a specific experience, but they can choose the location.

How well do you know them? Do you have access to old pictures or letters or other mementos? A beautifully framed picture (wedding or otherwise) of the two of them would be a terrific present. Or you can make a collage of pictures, or a picture book spanning their years together.

o.k. prepare, or order (depends on your cooking skills) a cake, and buy a silver knife with a very nice inscription, so they can cut the cake after the dinner/lunch and keep the knife in a very special place

My 25th anniversary is next month, and I would enjoy any of the things that people have proposed.

Some other ideas:

A certificate that you will petsit so they can have a getaway.

Movie tickets, and if your budget allows, a certificate for ice cream for two.

Tickets to a play.

A board game (scrabble, cranium, etc.) and a certificate to bring takeout Chinese for four along with an evening of fun with friends (you).

Do they have younger children? If they do you could offer to watch them while they go out to dinner?
I also like shilolo’s answer. Gift cards to their favorite restaraunt would be a great gift.

It would be fun to gather some of their dear friends and family for a surprise dinner, perhaps catered by a lovely restaurant or catering service. Or, have a personal chef cook their dinner for two at a remote location.

would the answer be different if they were only a medium happy couple?

marinelife's avatar

@judyprays Possibly. They might not then want to spend time together.

25th silver anniversary.
Something silver.

I gave my parents a silver platter with their wedding song engraved on it.

If they aren’t really interested in receiving gifts how about making a donation to their favorite charity in their name?
