Need advice for anniversary gift, please!!

Today is my in-laws' 53rd Anniversary. They will be coming over for cake on Sunday evening (when we also celebrate Father's Day), and my DH and I would like to give them a small gift.

Any suggestions?

Does anyone know where I could find those lists which indicate what you buy for certain anniversaries? (Paper for 1st, cotton for 2nd, etc.?)

Thanks
D

A spa day for them both! Also, a free compliment to that would be kind of unique would be naming a piece of land after her! I keep telling people about this site because I think it may be the coolest find I have discovered in a while ( http://www.ownapieceofamerica.us/ ).

If you know their friends well, perhaps you could contact them and ask if they have any old photo's or memories or thoughts they would like to share and write down) about the couple, and you could put it in an album for your in-laws to enjoy.

I see there are a lot of interesting and fun tours and other "gifts" that you could give them. My only suggestion (as a person who definitely would not appreciate the gift of a spa experience, for example, and would not be thrilled to get a deed for 1 inch of land in the U.S. that someone has bought for me) is that you should make sure that they will really like whatever you get them, since we all have different tastes.
