    • Some kind of really unique food gift. I bought friends who had lived together forever a gift sampler from Cheesecake Factory.

    • WOW!! You all have such great suggestions. Thank you so much, and keep them coming. The whole family is at a loss to what to get them. They are both great people who deserve a nice gift.
      My hubby does oil paintings, she has mentioned wanting a painting of his. He doesnt have time to paint one before the weekend, but we have a few already done. That would be a good add on gift on top of one of your suggestions.

    • I like UK’s suggestion but not everyone would appreciate such a charitable gift.  

      If they wouldn’t...then just give them a nice gift card to a nice local restaurant... or a nice bottle of champagne to toast to on their first anniversary.  Heck...I don’t know..estatic

    • [Link Removed] I have personally received gifts from this company and they are awesome.

      Cheryl and Company cookies are excellent, too.

    • Or, if they’ve already hired a photographer, perhaps a gift certificate from the photographer for a couple’s shoot or some unique picture frames.  

      Or.. some gorgeous new wine glasses with a very nice bottle of vino!

    • I would ask her personally.  I had the same issue when I had my second wedding with my existing husband.  In fact, I asked of no gifts.  Some dear friends insisted and they asked me.  So I told them what I really needed:

        - a pair of union candle  - a crucifix  - a photographer  - several lectors

      I really suggest to ask and tell her you want to be part of this happy moment.  That’s my humble opinion.

    • What if you asked friends and family of both sides to donate photo’s of them in different ages/era’s in their lives growing up and then arrange them in a nice collage and have it framed? You could make it a group effort/gift, and if they have a lot of stuff anyway, they’d probably appreciate not having a whole lot more. I’ve done this creatively myself, and cut out people/+ parts of photo’s and arranged them in funny ways, etc..if you‘re creative and have the time it would definitely be unique, and they could look at each other’s childhoods into adulthoods and fall in love all over again 20 years later..All the ladies suggestions were fantastic..I hope it helps..Good Luck and let us know what you come up with...

    • That’s tough.  When me and my husband got married we put on the invitations “_no gifts please_ “.  My opinion is if this is your 2nd or 3rd time around then don’t expect gifts.  But, that’s just my opinion.  But if I absolutely boughta gift then it would probably be a gift certificate to a nice restaraunt.  To us our best gift was our good friends and family being there to celebrate with us

    • The third time for BOTH of them?

    • I like ukgirls’s suggesstion of a donation to charity.  You may want to ask them what their fave charity is.  If you are uncomfortable with that, then all the other suggesstions are fabulous as well.  I like that your hubby is an artist and you are able to give them something so personal!  good luck
