I just returned home from visiting my family in Springfield. They treated me like royalty, and now I would love to send them a nice thank you. while there we drove by a place called Basket Case, and my cousin explained that it was a business that assembled and delivered gift baskets. That is one idea for a thank you, and I also thought of sending a gift card. Any other ideas? They are in their mid 60's.

I think its quite admirable that you desire to do something like this... and while gift baskets and flowers and the such are and serve a nice function, IMHO they are over-priced - yet still, a touching and neat gesture. I've received one from a former dotted-line boss for some extra work I did while traveling - was very , exploring the various goodies in there, tasting this and that little treat... yet, all the while [being mister practical ] thinking that 'good grief, what did this cost?'. Gift cards allow the person to purchase the goodies that they want/need, yet seem kinda 'cold' - however, as you know your family, their tastes and styles and thinkings, what in your mind would tickle them the most? Do they have a favourite restaurant - maybe a gift card for that? A favourite charity or non-profit organization, for example - maybe a donation in their names? At the end of the day, I would think that no matter what you send 'em, such will be a pleasant gesture to/for them. Best to ya!

I rec'd a "spa day for two" gift certificate once..it was great. Another thoughtful gift, as SD said, is a gift certificate for a great dinner spot. If they have a shared hobby...like golf....a gift certificate is always nice.

They like to eat out. What are some nice restaurants in Springfield? We were there such a short time I did not get a good feel for what they like...

I also thought about tickets to a show in Branson and dinner. What nice restaurants are there?

Thanks!
