Send Them On A Date
Send Mom and Dad on a date. They love this one. :) Simply buy gift certificates to their favorite restaurant, and then if they are coffee drinkers, as mine are, get them gift certificates to the best coffee house. Make a really cute certificate saying how they can have a romantic night out just the two of them. And if they enjoy a movie, or some other kind of entertainment, you can do that too. But sending them out on a date is a wonderful gift, and it's creative and unique to your parents.
Thanks Christy S.
