I am researching what to get my parents and my fiance's parents for gifts. I see on these forums that a photo album is a great gift idea but I also hear that gifts should be something people will want and use (which is a no-brainer, of course). So I'm wondering if parents actually enjoy getting those albums or if it comes across more like "Here are some pictures of me and my husband to collect dust on your shelf!"
I think my mom would like to have the photo album for sure and she would never act that way about anything I get her, but I guess I want to hear from other parents if they liked getting a photo album as a gift or not.
And if you do think it's a great gift, how does that work? An IOU with a thoughtful note at the RD?
