My oldest sister's 50th wedding anniversary. Ideas? Gift obligati
First I am leaving Saturday for a week at our cabin on a small lake. No TV, computer, out of total communication. There's no phone service, even.
The day we return, we have an important invitation. It's my oldest sister's 50th wedding anniversary. I was her flower girl when I was 4 years old. We're not extremely close but we are very polite when we talk, extremely infrequent.
I am sorta close to her youngest daughter. We really get along. Her (three) kids are throwing them a surprise dinner out, at a medium to upscale restaurant and we'll certainly show. But we'll be returning from 'vacation'.
They are very modest people. He retired as "County Superintendent of Schools." Well known, sure, but modest in lifestyle. They have everything they need/want.
Will a card suffice? Their kids think so. I have a week, a million things to do but won't have time later, so I need to know. Should I shop for a gift? If so, what kind. I have no time this week.
Thanks in advance for the rescue. My family has been no help at all.
