Parent gifts?

Would anyone like to share what gifts they're getting their parents as thank-yous for all they've done for the wedding? FI and I have gifts figured out for our wedding party, but we're a bit stuck on our parents. I was thinking about getting them gift certificates to a fancy restaurant or spa for couples massages...does this sound like a good idea? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

Re: Parent gifts?

  • I think it depends on your parents. My mom & dad wouldn't be into a fancy couples massage, but they would like a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant. I haven't decided for certain, but I'm probably going to give each set of parents a nice frame with a big wedding photo of us in it. That's fairly standard, and parents tend to like photos of their kids (:
  • My parents aren't really into fancy and we did most of our wedding, but they did help, so we purchased personalized hankies for the moms and a flask for my stepdad and the best man, because they love to drink. The moms loved the hankies and the guys loved the flasks, both gifts were used that day and they all seemed pretty excited! 

    Got the flasks from Things Remembered and the hankies from this awesome lady on Etsy. Here is her link:

    She had the best deals I could find on there and her customer service was great. She even surprised me with a free hankie for my "something blue". Best Etsy experience I've had. 
  • Not positive yet, but I just found these on Etsy and I love them! Different one's for each of our parents :)
