and we are meeting them for lunch on Sunday - what on earth can we buy them that doesn't cost a fortune?? My mind has gone blank and we are broke.

Is it a special anniversary? Do you usually exchange gifts? Can you buy them a goat in Africa?

Make them something. Biscuits,a cake.
Or...buy some supermarket roses, take off the celophane, trim and tidy them, and bind with a lovely thick ironed ribbon and leave the ends trailing.
My little trick for dinner parties and other celebrations.

Although I do go along with compo. Why do they need a present?
Isn't your company enough?

Gosh, I've never bought my friends anything for a wedding anniversary. I don't buy/get anything for mine, either!

How about a handmade card made by a MNetter? See Arts and Crafts threads for details

Get the girls to decorate a box - pick up a shoebox in a nearby shoe shop or something (you do have shops in the sticks, don't you)?

There are organisations that send catalogues around Xmastime so that you can buy sustainable development things for communities abroad, like goats and standpipes. How about something like that, if they have all that they need? I can't remember the names of these organisations, but I'm sure that either other Mumsnetters will know, or that a good Googler would be able to find them.
