January 2012 Weddings

Ideas? Gifts For Mom And Dad?

We are almost done shopping for gifts for the folks involved in our ceremony. The plan is to give them out at the rehearsal dinner.  We know that in the long run, we'd like to give parents a photo album from our wedding day.  However, I'd like to give a little something at the rehearsal dinner.  I haven't really seen anything that my parents would use on the Wedding Shop suggestions (i.e. jewelry, bar accessories like glasses, etc).  Has anyone bought or made anything that's a little outisde of the box?  Just looking for ideas!

  • We're gettings both our moms & dads the same things as the bridesmaids and groomsmen -- a morse code necklace for the girls and personalized beer mug for the boys. (yeah, I know getting the same gift for everyone is frowned upon, but it's normal in our circle.)

    Then we're also getting each of our parents a gift card for a nice restaurant -- places they wouldn't treat themselves to if they were paying normally.

  • We cannot afford gifts for our parents or for the fg or the rb. We are only getting the bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts. My Fi just said our parents WILL NOT expect a gift.

  • No Idea what we are getting for ours. I guess for my parents, we got their wedding rings resized and fixed so they could wear them again.
  • My parents got a wine rack.  When they came to visit they mentioned wanting one.
