The guest book is a good idea.

Pretty sure they will have a guest book already....

How close are you to them? What value are you thinking?

Do they have a garden. Bush or tree to plant in honour of special day, unusual but just a thought

You can't go wrong with an M&S gift card.

Card & gift in one go and loads to choose from.

Maybe get all your family to sneak pictures from when they first met to present day and do a photo album. You could include a cd of the music from the year they met to present day, and songs that mean something to them. Sometimes it's the thoughtful stuff that means more than shop bought gifts.

A recent wedding we went to we bought a £20 thomas cook voucher, but they had asked for it...it was going towards their honeymoon. So everyone in theory was helping to pay for it!

I have just eaten a raspberry panna cotta.

Luxuriously rich vanilla cream topped with lightly poached raspberries.

Cost about 25p after my discount :p

Guest book + make sure everyone signs it - often these things get bought but not filled in. Can even get guests to write on 1 side and get photos printed and stick on other side

Take loads of photos and do a photo book online for them, try and go around making sure you get a photo of everyone who is there.

I did both of the above for my parents 25th anniversary, when they renewed their vows, and they were delighted with them. Means they have things to keep and look back on, and also something to show people who werent there (and people who were there wanted to see photos).

we were together nearly 10 years before tying the knot. friends weren't sure what to get us as we have things already having lived together so long. tbh we were just happy to have our dearest and nearest with us celebrating so we weren't too bothered with gifts. but after being hard pressed to name some things, we decided to set up a john lewis wedding list but just for vouchers. friends overseas just put in an amount and we told them where it went to --> most of it to a fridge freezer we replaced our trusty old 9 year old small student fridge lol.
