    The best wedding gift I ever saw for a gay couple is a special glass anniversary sundial that sits indoors on the window sill and makes actual rainbow colors on the floor in our family room when the sun shines. We got one for our wedding, (a gift certificate actually) and we were able to have our sundial made specifically for our window sill, and the man who made it added a date line and moment mark that the time shadow follows and touches on our wedding day each year, and if we are both home when the time shadow touches the special mark we drink a toast! It was perfect and fun to work on together after the honeymoon was over. I don’t remember what it’s called but you can find it online with a search. We give the gift certificates when friends get married, especially when we have to travel to the wedding!
