With divorce rates skyrocketing, spending decades together is already a miracle. This is especially true with couples that have already endured so much raising their kids from tots to college. This is perhaps the reason why anniversaries that reach the milestone years are often celebrated in a big way. After all, there is a lot to celebrate.
Here are some great ideas for gifts that children can give their parents.
A long vacation
Let’s face it. With the long years that they have spent putting up with you, they deserve a week or a month of a life that is kids-free. What better gift to give them than a trip to a foreign land where they can enjoy being together without the distraction of kids in their midst? For their anniversary, why not buy them tickets to some exotic destination where they can relax and just have fun. They can even make the trip their second honeymoon.
Of course, when you say a vacation, they need to be completely relaxed with the fewest worries as possible. One thing that you can do to minimize their worries is to volunteer to take care of things at home. Volunteer to take care of the younger kids or to take care of the house while they are away.
Be a slave
If you have no money to buy them expensive gifts like the plane tickets, you can show your appreciation of what they have done for you by volunteering to take care of the chores at home while they go out and have fun. You can even do this for a couple of nights.
Another way to give your parents gifts on their anniversary celebration is to take care of their usual chores so that they can spend more time together.
Prepare the meal
Celebrating anniversaries need not be so fancy. One thing that you can give to your parents is a surprise meal that they can share at home. Organize the perfect date. Prepare not only the food but also the music and the whole romantic ambience. Ask family members what their favorite meals are or better yet, why not ask them what their meals are when they had their first date and then prepare your menu. If you do not know how to cook, enlist the help of family members who know how. After preparing the meal, you can all go out and leave them alone in the house.
