My brother is getting married but isn't having a wedding celebration. They are just going to the city and signing the papers to make their union legal. I won't be there but I will be the following week and wanted to bring them something.

She already has 4 of her own kids (her second marriage) and they are in their 40's. They have a house together with everything and don't need anything. Any ideas? They are both very low key people. Thanks!

Gift cards are nice. We just got my step-grandson a clock that shows the temp in the room and has another unit so that you can see the outside temp from inside on the clock.

We got ours at Walmart but I'm sure other places have them. Also, a photo album for them to start a collection of pictures of their lives together would be nice.

My cousin just married hubby number five. I know. I quit stressing over the proper gift by hubby number three. So we all get her bed linens. You can never have too many. And she actually enjoys dressing her bed now. What with two closets full of comforters, and silk sheet sets. Throw in some matching curtains and it can be an elegant statement they both can enjoy, but if the marriage ends, they make for a really good bonfire as well.

If you are crafty you could pick up one of the simpler marriage cross stitch kits and frame.

Gift cards for entertainment if they don't need "things" or family passes to a local attraction like a zoo or amusement park. Restaurant GC, movies theatres, rentals etc, or if possible offers to babysit.

Towels, after so long they start to look ratty but with four kids that is something they don't splurg on. Get the big sheet towel for the adults.

Try an "On This Day" framed gift. Get the important stats from "today" (#1 song, who was president, stock market quotes, the price of eggs or bread or a car or house or whatever ...you get the hint) Print it out in a nice font on a nice piece of paper and frame it. and the last line could read "But most important, *** and *** were joined together as husband and wife!" Or whatever phrase you see as appropriate!

If you want, you could find the same things from the birth years of the bride and groom and make a 3-piece group (his birth year, her birth year, and the wedding year.) I made one of these for my DH for his birthday (of course it finishes " But Most Important * was born". He loved it and now he wants me to make one for my b-day and our wedding date to (as he says) "complete the theme".

I like several of these ideas, especially the "on this day" framed set. Another thing they might enjoy is a nice bottle of wine or sparkling wine, and if they don't drink alcoholic beverages, sparkling cider or juice. It feels festive, and as you said, they do have enough "stuff."

Sounds like the one thing they will need is time. Give them coupons for babysitting, house cleaning, ironing, doing their shopping for them. Anyone would appreciate these for any occasions.

They will then have time to spend with each other. Not having quality time to concentrate on your marriage is the first mistake new couples make. Make it possible for them to do so.

I am getting married again and I would like to give my sons (of previous marriage ages 18 and 20) a gift from me as a gesture that even though I'm marrying again, they are still a main part of my life.

There is always a nice set of cuff links or a tie tac. No matter what type of life style a person lives there is always some occasion to use something like that. For something really unusual go online and look for Black Hills Gold. It is jewelry that is made in South Dakota.

In order to be real Black Hills Gold, the jewelry has to be made in SD. It is expensive, but unique. Or you could make scrapbooks for each one of them, starting when they were born up until the current time. You could also do the same on DVDs, but you can make scrap books prettier.
