Give them a carton of cigs and a 12-pack of rubbers and tell them you made up your master bedroom especially for them tonight.

This is exactly where I need the help. Feel free to elaborate your post and share more suggestions. :)

Perhaps I can pick up cheesecake from Junior's.

Why do you want to get a material possession for someone you have never met?

Just take them out for dinner at a nice restaurant.

Because there's a good chance they'll be my future in-laws and I want to make a good impression. :D

How about a nice framed picture of you and your GF at time square or at some New Yorky place? If I was her parents, I would treasure that.

propostion the mother, let her know you want to find out if the original is better than the sequel.

A nice pinch on the rear will tell her you are serious.
