A lot of people (not me, but to each their own) like scrapbooking. Make a collage of family stuff, and really it's like almost combing all three things you said into one big idea.

You could make an altered book with the alterations having to do with your family. I have not looked there might be an instructibal on altered books, but i you google it I know you will find one.

Look through her bookshelves.  Does she have a favorite author?  If so, perhaps a signed copy of a book by that author.  You may have to contact the publisher, but some (lower-popularity) authors may arrange to sign a copy of their book if you buy it new from the bookstore or publisher.

I know you said 'no picture frames' but my parents loved the arrangement I got them for their anniversary, a few years back.  It was a simple frame with matting for about a dozen photos.  I inserted several school pix of myself, college photo, one of my wife and I when we got married, a tiny copy of my diploma, etc.

Hope this helps!
