    A little more info --- do they still work? What do they like - any special interests? What's your price range?

    If you had a little more time you could have a painting made of their wedding picture.

    Or you could get them a certificate to this place. Oooolala!!

    Gift Certificates to their favorite restaurant coupled with some movie passes or tickets to a dinner theater would always work. Gives them a night out, which they may or may not have available depending on their schedules.

    There's great theater in Chicago...maybe a pair of tickets, or if they are art fans, tickets to the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit at the Art Institute and lunch in the garden there (my daughter got me this for my birthday..I can't wait). It would depend on their interests. White Sox play-off tickets maybe (if their allegience isn't on the north side of town)?

    Just go and spend some time with them. I know as my parents have gotten older they just enjoy and appreciate the time they get to spend with their kids and grandkids. It's cheaper and longer lasting than any gift you can give them.

    My parents took us to the Toulouse exhibit, it was pretty cool, he was a big drinker and used to hang out with hookers in Paris while doing some artwork so there is a little for everyone.

    Yes, yes I am quoting myself. Sybaris isn't trashy or anything. It's very nice. And to you youngins' who think old farts don't like a little romance and hot sex. (Sorry to say that about your parents, Red, but they did it at least once).
