Second Weddings

Grandma getting married! What to get them???

Hey All-
I'm Josie, Im gettng married in March 2013 in S. Florida. Quick question for you ladies- my grandma called me a few months ago and told me some pretty big news, her and her boyfriend of 3 years have decided to get married! They are getting marrie d next week, and I still have yet to get them anything..mainly because..I don't know what you get two people that have both been married before and have EVERYTHING. What do you guys think is a good gift for your 75 year old grandma's wedding??

Thanks!
Josie

    Congrats to you and your grandmother!  I don't have any ideas for a gift, but I like Lisa's idea.

    Congratulations to both you and your grandma!!

    Gift cards to their favorite restaurants, a nicely framed photograph of you and your FI, a nice frame for their wedding portrait or favorite candid shot of the day - then there is also the nice card wishing them well!

    Almost everyone who gave us a physical gift gave us a phot frame. (Not with their picture in it, of course).
    Do they have a hobby?  A gift card to a store that supports their hobby might be good.  Reading, Gardening.  Travelling. Beach.  Camping. Cooking.  etc.

    Do they like to go to the movies?  A few sets of movie passes, that come with popcorn and a drink would be fun.

    Give them 5 dates.  Movie passes, restaurant gift cards, museum passes, a local park, and a nearby theatre production.

    Are they retired and living on a fixed income?  Give them a grocery store gift card.  OR gasoline gift cards. 

    Are they taking a honeymoon?  Pay for some portion or extra for the trip.

    Practical things work for me - gift card to grocery store, or gas card, movie passes, and etc that right1 mentioned.  I am sure they have enough "stuff" and don't need anything.

    Not sure what your budget is. Concert tickets? If they are young at heart, how about a romantic spa package for the two of them?
