A wedding anniversary for parents can create dilemmas for their kids when it comes to finding just the right gifts. Some of them may be too young and others may just not have a lot of money. However, there are still some gifts that kids can manage when it comes to giving their parents anniversary gifts.
All parents love to get things that their kids have created themselves. One such thing is a DVD that you have made just for them. Find all the pictures you can of your parents’ wedding and honeymoon. If possible, include pictures of them before they met. Let these be the start of your DVD.
Contact other family members that may have attended your parents’ wedding to see if they remember what music was played at the wedding. If you can find it, use this as the background music in your DVD. At the end, put something that says Happy Anniversary with all of their kids’ names.
If you’re older and can afford it, send your parents on a trip for their wedding anniversary. Take care of all the arrangements so that all they need to do is pack and show up for the airplane trip. You can also consider a cruise if you know that’s something they would enjoy. Just make sure that they’ve mentioned wanting to visit the place you’re sending them.
Another creative idea is to locate a guest of the wedding that will help you assemble a list with the other guests. Send out emails or notes to these guests and ask them to send any pictures, funny stories, or cards that they may have to. Collect everything that you receive and wrap them up in a big box. Your parents will love reading and looking at all of these things.
Plan an anniversary party for them. Of course, invite all family members but also try to include some guests from their wedding that they may not have seen in years. This will take some planning and research but it can be a lot of fun and very memorable.
Don’t forget about giving cards. These can be created by you from pictures to verse. Something like this always means a lot to parents.
