my stepfather's parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend -- 50! years! -- and i've been trying for several weeks to think of a gift. originally we thought to hire a photographer to come and take a great family shot, but then we found out they don't want a big fuss and want the party to be very low key. we're taking them to fancy dinner the day after the party, but what does one give a couple who has been together for so long, travels frequently, and is not lacking for much? what would be meaningful to commemorate 50 years?

maybe... a cd with top 10 hits from the year they got married -- 1959! -- or something with "gold" in the name that isn't a gold-rimmed plate or picture frame... and we don't have vintage photos, so photo/slideshow is out. any ideas?
