Gift Ideas for Hard-To-Buy-For Parents

Welp, I'm stumped again... my parents are the type who make good money and usually buy the stuff they want before we even get a chance.

I know some of you out there are creative, so lets hear some ideas.

great idea, hand written note/card with whatever you get them

ideas:
10. holiday decorations
9. spend time with them - night/weekend trip to a resort, theater/dinner theater, music concert of any kind (rock, singer/songwriter, symphony, jazz) dinner out with you, bowling, professional sports game
8. cooking class gift certificate
7. spa gift certificate for 2
6. flowering bulbs, indoor, delivered, come in a pot with dirt
5. holiday/seasonal wreath for the front door (with over the door hook), Williams-Sonoma and Red Envelope have some good ones.
4. restaurant gift certificate
3. a pair of concert tix
2. loaded mp3 player with dock (filled with music they enjoy), or burned CD's with their music

and the #1 best gift idea for the person who has everything:
1. a shoebox full of $20s
