My ideas so far, without huge effort are:

- tickets for Orient Express

- tickets for London Eye - their own pod, at nght with champagne (not 100% sure I can even do this but will look into it)

- Treat them to dinner at the Fat Duck restaurant in Bray.

Any other ideas??????????

ooh your ideas are very posh.i was about to suggest a rose tree called ruby anniversary.we bought it for my parent and it's beautiful.

but i think we're batting in different leagues.

they're all lovely ideas - if you can't do the Eye with own pod etc you could get them normal tickets followed by dinner at the People's Palace - it's part of the Royal Festival Hall complex and has fantastic views over the river. and gorgeous food

It's my PIL's ruby anniversary next year. I've told them that they can have my daughter Ruby for the whole weekend if they like. Can loan her if you'd like....she's a crap sleeper but they don't need to know that....

lovely ideas, thank you all.
I love the rose tree idea loads, thanks for that Alexsmum. Think I'll do that even if I do on of the others anyway. The rose tree can be from their grandchildren.

Katymac - fab ideas hon' thanks. Love the antique glass thing as they are really into their antiques, think that's a lovely idea.

thewomanwhothughtshewasahat - i'll look into that, thanks for the tip.

ggirl - happy anniversary to you parents, how lovely. Bet you can't wait to see them. Where in Canada do they live? My parents used to live in Hamilton, Ontario.

Ragtaggle - LOL!

JanH - LOL - you know him so well!!!!!!!!!! Or men in general anyway!
