1 Day of Yard Work
Let’s face it, power tools aren’t for everyone, especially your elderly parents. Hedge trimmers, leaf blowers, ride-on mowers … the list goes on. Weeding under a hot sun can be just as dangerous, and let’s not get started on weed whackers! Support your parents while caring for the Earth. Give this precious anniversary gift of green for just one day!
When did live music go out of style? Go ahead and raise the decibels a bit. This digital age of singular musical experiences is no cure for the weary minded. Give your parents tickets to an experience they’ll never forget. Get those toes tapping and hands clapping and let the rhythms set them free from the monotony!
Yes, your parents love your cooking, but they’d kind of like to get out for once. But if you buy them a restaurant gift card, you’re still sort of force feeding them. You should really stop that. An Open Table gift card lets them decide what to stuff in their own faces while gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes and reminiscing about a life shared. Or bickering over who ruined the kids. Or arguing over when the roof was replaced. You know how it is.
After spending somewhere around a bajillion hours together, every couple runs out of things to talk about from time to time. With more than 2 million copies of TableTopics sold, this thing certainly has people talking. Which of us is the worst backseat driver? How much do we need in the bank to feel secure? Is it our similarities or our differences that attract us to each other?
Nothing says “I love you” better than the ultimate aged bottle of liquor! Celebrate the enormous accomplishment of surviving decades together and toast to the years of bliss that lie ahead. Who needs another pearl necklace? A tie clip? Forget about it! Set this trophy atop the mantle and revel in success.
The refrigerator provides an ideal canvas for artistic, decorative, and sentimental displays of all kinds. Yet most people just have an old grocery list or a bunch of alphabet magnets strewn across its surface haphazardly. Wouldn’t it be nicer if they could look at the front of the refrigerator and see the smiling faces of their most beloved family members gazing back at them? Make it happen with a fridge collage magnet.
After years and years together, there really aren’t many surprises left, and maybe that’s a good thing. But that doesn’t mean that all surprises are bad. Show your parents how much people still like them by getting all those people to hide in a room and startle the crap out of them.
Everyone pretends to think those giant-headed drawings of people doing exaggerated things are silly, but give a framed one of themselves to your parents and watch. That thing’s gonna go on display for sure.
If you’re considering going with gift as common as flowers, you might consider stepping it up a few dozen notches by dipping them in 24k gold. Just gather up all your extra gold, melt it in your crucible, and toss in your plants. Or just buy this Eternity Rose instead. Actually, it’s probably electro-plated not really dipped in molten metal, but you get the point.
