Vow Renewal gift

Friends of ours are going to be renewing their vows for their 20th anniversary. I am at a loss as to a gift.

Any suggestions?

Shameless plug...

I like both the previous ideas! But, I saw a super cute thing on my sister's tree last Christmas that she made. She was married in September and she made a Christmas ornament out of her invitation. I was really unique. I think she saw the idea on Pintrest or something.

Anywho, she's starting her own little shop on Etsy (brand new). If you happened to get an invite to the vow renewal, maybe you could make one of these for them? Or, even better, buy one from a fabulous vendor on etsy

Okay, am I even allowed to say that on here? If not, I apologize and will delete this link. I am planning on giving this to my girlfriend for her upcoming wedding with a nice check for their house fund. I wanted to find something unique that would be a keepsake for them over the years.

Good luck in whatever you choose...this is a huge accomplishment. Twenty years is a long time! Congrats to the couple!

Here's the link if you are interested in seeing the idea:

Nice ideas here ! When our DD/SIL did their 20th Anniversary renewal we did a simple silver frame they loved and have in their living room. C'mas tree ornament sounds like a great and personable idea also - our kids had a ceramic photo one done for us at Shutterfly and we love it! Fun times, good luck in deciding!

Depending on the timing, something lovely they can plant outdoors might be a nice momento of the occasion. If the weather isn't quite cooperative for a gift like that, maybe a gift certificate to their local garden center so they can select what they might like whenever spring decides to make an appearance.

I agree with Pigeon. A card. The gift situation is out of control. It is YOUR anniversary not mine.

If a person does a vow renewal every year am I supposed to continuously give them a gift?

I always think of Heidi Klum and Seal.
