Toronto anniversary ideas?

My girlfriend's parents' 30th wedding anniversary is coming up soon, and we'd like to do something nice for them.

And by "soon," I mean "on the 19th." That's next week, and we're drawing a blank on ideas.

We'd like to do something for them, or get them a meaningful gift. They live in Toronto, and neither of us will be there until the 15th. If we need to go anywhere before the 19th, it will have to be reachable via TTC. Oh, and we're somewhat poor university students, so anything over $200 may be pushing it.

30th anniversary is Pearls, traditionally speaking. Accordingly, I'd suggest a night out at Rodney's Oyster House (yes, non-oyster stuff on the menu if you're one of the uninitiated). It's right on the TTC, located just west of Spadina & King West, on the south side of King.

Can you contact a bunch of their friends and get everyone together for a dinner or something? This would be especially nice if they don't see their friends that often.

Well-done scrapbooks are always nice, too, if you're able to get your hands on some old family photos. I'm sure they'd love a scrapbook that documents the past 30 years they've spent together.

Rodney's Oyster House

Or you could go straight for Pearl :P They have the most fantastic view of the harbour, and very good food.

Family portrait, framed prints. (assuming they like pictures and don't have a recent one of everyone together)
