They love going to Ocean City, Maryland and will probably be there. I obviously cant pay for their trip but I could possibly pay for a couple of their dinners. Should I get something more last than that though?
It's their Golden Annivrsary, I was thinking about getting them 2 cases of Golden Anniversary Beer and making them drink it in 24 hours. Hey it fits my budget. J/K
My mom loves quilting (She's made quilts for Raynequeen, Megmyster, Sunshower and Nancykind) my dad likes reading, cats and baseball.

For Tabbooma's parents we threw a big party with all the family... You'll figure it out
That's what we did for Lemireacle's parents!

as far as a gift, i would maybe just give them an envelope of money, a nice letter about how much they mean to you and tell them to spend the money doing things that they love to do together
maybe a memento, too, like a nice pic of you and your brother in a nice frame...maybe get all spiffied up and go to a studio or pose for a photog friend...just ideas...
my parents are on 45, so they are close!

A low-cash gift - do a memory book. Get some nice paper, print at the top something like "My fondest memory of x & y........" and have people fill it in & send it back, with pictures if they have them. Get family, old friends, old co-workers. Then put it together in a nice scrapbooking binder. Send people about 3 pages each.
We did this for my in-laws 35th wedding anniversary & someone did it for my Grandfather's 70th birthday. It ends up being so sweet & so fun & costs relatively nothing

By chance is there a copy of their wedding invitation floating around their house anywhere? I had a copy of my parents invitation etched onto glass and then framed for them for their 40th. They loved it. With all the places on the internet, I'm sure you could find someplace to emboss it onto something. Shouldn't be too expensive either.
Thats an awesome idea!!!!

I'd imagine the best gift they could ask for is just you and your brother there with them to celebrate.
I could be there but my brother is unlikely. As a chef in a resort town, it's tough to get away in Aug.
I saw these really nice bathrobes in LL Bean. I could get them matching monogramed bathroobes for them to longue in. They both wear bathrobes and the bathrobes are old and ratty.
