Scrapbooks are always good for an occasion like that... if that sounds like it might take too long, you could always buy/make frames for between 3 and 5 of your favorite family pictures (at least one needs to be of JUST your parents). Then hang them in a nice grouping on a wall for your parents' anniversary.

If you wanted to do something cheaper and cheesier (which would make MY parents laugh), buy them an inexpensive bouquet and bottle of wine, and then spray paint both completely silver, because it's their silver anniversary.

My grandma used to crochet bags and hats from grocery bags.  It's actually how she taught me to crochet.  They actually turned out really cool.
