When my grandparents celebrated their 50th anniversary they were given *lots* of "50th anniversary" things, and many wedding type presents. They had way too many things, (appliances, towels, dishes, etc.) and no place to store them. Most of the gifts were returned to the stores. Those that could not be returned were given to the kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews, and charity.

It was very hard on them to return the presents, but their home was already over crowded after 50 yrs of anniversary presents let alone 70+ yrs of birthday and Christmas presents!

A memory book is a wonderful idea. Everyone has room for memories.

Love & Prayers,
Linda
