My parents will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary soon. I'm at a loss for gift ideas. Any suggestions?

I have no ideas whatsoever. Every bit of help will be extremely appreciated.

Well, I am sorry, I do not have any idea. I guess find what type of things they like, or, oh idk, I am so sorry! :( But, congrats on that! 40 years for your parents, that is something to be proud of! :)

How about a small party or get-together of close friends and family?

I know I suggest the same thing almost every time...but photo books make great gifts. Get an original wedding invitation and their wedding picture. Then pictures of the family over the years and a recent picture...as recent as you can get. If there's a party for the 40th you can close with the invitation to their 40th anniversary. Consider including personal written tributes from the immediate family. If there are young grandchildren you can have them do art work and then scan it or take pictures of that and include those. Congratulations. My mother died before my parents got that far.

It would be a good idea to make them a gift - vacation package all inclusive.

When my parents celebrated their 5oth anniversary we asked all of their family and friends to write a note about my parents relationship which we then put in plastic sleeves & made into a special album. My aunt (who stood up with them at their wedding when they eloped) wrote about the trecherous weather they encountered as they drove to another state. My brother wrote my dad sleeping in mom's hospital room when she was on bed rest while pregnant with my sister. I wrote about the time my dad walked up behind "mom" in a grocery store & patted her bottom only to have a total stranger turn around & yell at him. We had sentimental letters, funny letters, you name it but all spoke of parts of their love that were observed by others. (My youngest daughter couldn't write at the time, but even she contributed by drawing a picture of grams & gramps kissing.) They absolutely loved the album & would pull it out & go through the letters periodically until they passed away.

I think that family dinners organized by the kids are always appreciated.

How about a special evening out paid for and reserved. Whatever they enjoy doing or special place they love to eat. You could set up a date that they might not spend on themselves for. I think that would be lovely. Congratulations to them. My parents made it through their 65th wedding anniversary and in today's world---marriage for keeps is precious. A 40th anniversary is well worth celebrating. I hope they had a very nice one.
