    IMO celebrate it in a grand way either in a hotel ( party hall) or at your parents place inviting all family and friends .. Order food out ... Buy a good useful gift for your parents ( something that they require at home ) like a new tv used by all .. Something which might be useful for both or buy individual gifts for your mom and dad..
    All te best

    Smile, you don't own all the problems in the world
    Don't compare your life with others You have no idea what their journey is all about .
    Time heals almost everything ,give The time some time .

    Will your DH be able to help you with the money part ? Else another thing that you can do is try to send them for a small trip from Tamil nadu. You can choose some places in TN itself like hill stations or even like kerala/munnar. You can get some hotel rooms there for them and they can go for a weekend. That maybe a refreshing break for them.

    If you feel even this may not be within your budget, then I suggest that you can get some small earrings/saree for your mom and a watch for your dad.

    Another option is that if you are visiting them for their anniversary,you and your sis can take them out for a nice dinner at a nice restaurant. Some place they wont go on their own. I personally like to take my parents in Chennai for some buffet dinners since they get to try various kinds of food and normally they wont go to such places on their own.

    The last inexpensive option is to make like a slideshow or collage or pics of them from baby , marriage photos, when u kids were born etc etc... basically showcasing their 25 yrs of togetherness. YOu can make it and give it to them

    Hope your parents have a wonderful 25th anniversary.
