I love the family tree idea... I can bring the album we gave my parents from my wedding and theirs. We have TONS of photo albums... Maybe I can sneak those out too. They are packing things up to try to sell their house, so I can offer to box those and keep them at my house so they are "safe". Heee
For gifts, I'm toying with two options. One: a caricature drawing of them in my dad's Vette with their three Chihuahuas. Or two: a family tree. A friend of mine creates them/frames them so it would be "nice." I know either will be a larger investment (not just a $50 gift or anything) and something they don't have but could display. And with spending the money on the party, I didn't want to go too terribly overboard.
