Need an idea for a 28th wedding anniversary gift?

My book has what the 25th should be and what the 30th should be, but nothing in between. Jewelry won't work, she says she already has more than enough

    Just as an orchid plant is breathtaking, your twenty-eighth year of marriage can be a breathtaking time of change in your marriage as your children chart their own course in life and the two of you have more time alone together. As you celebrate your 28th wedding anniversary, reflect on how far the two of you have journeyed together.

    Here are some 28th wedding anniversary ideas and symbols to help you choose orchid gifts associated with your 28th marriage anniversary.

    There's not a traditional gift for a 28th wedding anniversary, but the modern gift idea has the theme of orchids, celebrating ideas and symbols.

    Maybe a gift of an orchid along with something celebrating ideas and symbols would be appropriate. I'm not sure what ideas or symbols are important to you, so I can't be more specific.

    I know you said "jewelry won't work" but I was going to say "Journey Necklace" when I first read your Q. This may still be worth considering because it's not just another hunk of gold / rock. You can remind her of the meaning behind it - You guys have been on a 28+ year journey together and you would not trade it for anything. "He shoots - HE SCORES!"

    Another option would be to surprise her with a little weekend getaway like Niagara Falls or somewhere close to you like that. Don't forget card and flowers.

    see if a search has anything for 28 yrs. (traditional anniversary gifts for number of years married), you can get a newspaper copy of what happened in the news on the day/month/year they were married from the city paper (archives) they were married in, A nice album of family members pictures/achievements then and the years between to the present, go in with others to give them a week-end or night for dinner and nice hotel room, or a show/concert

    What does she really really want that she won't buy herself?

    Prada Purse?

    Designer Shoes?

    Automatic cat litter box?

    LOL- you get my drift.... even if it's something for the house like the robot vacuum that may make her life easier that she won't think to buy herself.
