How much do you want to spend? What kind of interests do they have?

LOL Iklboo

Probably want to spend about £100-£150 tops. They enjoy travelling, dining out & are currently taking ballroom classes - any ideas for a gift? Thanks!!

Bit of a cliche but...nice red wine/port

We bought ours a "ruby anniversary" rose and planted it in a lovely pot. Needless to say, MIL changed the pot as soon as she got it home but that's another story!

You can get ruby glass, it is made by the Bristol blue glass company:

I made my parents a card with a montage of photos from their "courting" & wedding in the fifties up to present dayfor their ruby.

Can't remember what I bought them for a pressie but for their 50th dh ordered them a newspaper from their wedding day (original, in a personalised box etc).

I like the idea or ruby wine goblets, thank you!

We bought them both an original newspaper for their 60th birthdays.

thanks everyone
