Parents' gifts

Probably the biggest thing I have left to do is buy thank you gifts for my parents and FMIL. I have been searching for months and just can't come up with any ideas and now I am down to the wire :(Any ideas on either specific gift ideas or stores to look in would be greatly appreciated!

    Our parents (three sets of them) loved the digital photo frames that we gave them.

    We are buying our parents each an engraved photo frame that has one side for the wedding invitation and one side for a photo.  We aren't going to give them until we get the photos back.  They look really nice and are very reasonable.  Bed Bath and Beyond have them on their website :)

    We did engraved frames for all of them.  Also - we got my mom a really good bottle of wine, and my dad a bunch of good cigars.

    We got both sets of parents engraved picture frames from Things Remembered. We engraved them with "Family" and our wedding date. I wanted to give them something that wasn't all about us, hence the "family" engraving, so that they can put a pic of all of us in it. I'm also going to make albums for them, but not sure when I'll get that done. Sorry, I guess that's not very original!

    We got them a nice picture frame and then a gift certificate to thank them for their help - theater tickets for my parents and the ILs fav restaurant.  HTH!

    We also did engraved picture frames. We engraved them both with "To our parents on our wedding day" and then our date underneath. We also gave each set of parents 2 bottles of wine (one red, one white) with our names and wedding date on the label.

    I did the digital photo frames too, like Molly. It went over well, I thought.

    We just did photo albums.  I really like the digital picture frame idea, but my parents already had one and DH's dad would have no idea how to work it.

    We did the digital picture frames too. We were quite excited about them, but our parents, not so much. Neither of them are using the frames yet. I honestly think that they don't know how, so we may just load up an SD card for them for Christmas to put in the frames.
