Mother of the Bride/Groom Gift

So innitially I was going to get my mom and FI's mom zip-up hoodies embroidered with "Mother of the Bride" and "Mother of the Groom" to wear while getting ready. I'm having such a hard time finding hoodies in the sizes I need, so to save myself a little stress, I am abandoning the idea. BUT now I need to think of another gift to get for the moms. We got the dads cufflinks and plan to give both sets of parents a copy of the video and a photo album later this year, so it doesn't have to be anything extravagent. I'm trying to stay away from jewelry b/c they both have SO much of it and already have their jewelry for the wedding. Any ideas?

    I have been thinking about getting my mom and his mom personalized hankies...I've found some beautiful ones on for under $20! The MOTG one would say something like "(FI's Mom's name), Thank you for raising the man of my dreams, Love (me)" and I might have my mom's say "Today a Bride, Tomorrow a Wife, Forever Your Daughter". They have samples of different sayings! :-)

    Maybe I'm just emotional today but this about made me choke up just now: "Today a Bride, Tomorrow a Wife, Forever Your Daughter". Such a beautiful sentiment!!I am no good at gift ideas :( Sorry...maybe a gift card for some spa services?

    I did personalized hankies for my parents, they loved them, and it's something they will always have.

    I got hankies for my mom & my husband's mom.  I also got one for my DH that said "Groom" on it.  He used it a ton!!  I think it is such a sweet idea.  I got them at Gift Cottage in Bethel.

    Love the idea too!  I found a gorgeous one on Etsy with that saying.

    This is from the son, but I'm sure it can be made to say: Today a Bride...
