50th Wedding Anniversary

Are you sure that they want presents, my grandparents after 50 years had everything they needed and more. Mostly they receive little what nots that are just dust collectors so we all jointly made the decision to ask for no gifts, if you want to give to give a donation to a charity of their choice in lieu of gifts. Some people will still bring presents, they still got about 10 photo albums, 5 50th wedding anniv. what-nots (plates, bells, candles, etc...) We did a book of memories for my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. Myself (grandchild) and the children went together and gave them a honeymoon back to where their original honeymoon was as a surprize, and we had their clothes packed and hid in the trunk of their car for the send-off. Good luck!
