A get-together of everyone they love. (but manageable by them)
Presence - not presents!

Your time! Your presence means far more than presents .... As much as you can give.

Mark ... you beat me by 1 minute.

Nice touch - And that harder than it sounds. They are in Dunedin and we just happen to be in port the day before as part of our cruise. They know we are on holiday but dont know where. But 3 of us want to get something but not sure what...

Well something beautiful never goes unappreciated. I sometimes (maybe it's "often"!) give something turned in native wood. Some pieces feel beautiful to the touch - but maybe that's just my bias, coming from a forestry background.

Steve... you could go online with the criuse line and purchase say and romantic dinner for two - flowers - day trip on behalf of your Ma & Pa.

Or for both you and Mark.. how about a professional photograph of all the family/extended family.. then you will been able to have one too!
