Not sure what to get for a couple who has been together for 25 years

Friends are getting married after being together for 25 years. I am invited to the wedding, and plan on giving a monetary gift. However, i just received a shower invitation (the shower is being given by her sister). The couple have everything they want/need. I don't know what to get them for the shower. And, I'm not sure the bride really want a shower. Help!! What do I do??

shower gift NEW
by: Anonymous

Guests gave my husband and I (to be) the gift of a gondola ride in Boston. They had a little cheese and cracker tray, chocolate dipped strawberries and you could bring your own wine or champagne. It was a lot of fun and something the guests had been given as well. Obviously not all parts of the country have something like that, but as long as it is something specifically for the couple and not a chore to get to or to do. Spa or romantic restaurant certificates might be nice also.

Wine & dine NEW
by: Wine Lady

How about a nice bottle of French Champagne ($40-$50) to celebrate their wedding or their first anniversary? Or buy a couple of nice bottles. I saw a wine bag recently that said "Eat, drink & be Married!"

If they don't like wine a gift card to a nice restaurant for a night out would work.

Consumables are always a good choice!

For the Bridal Shower it would be appropriate to give a nice satin night gown.
