Gift Ideas For Parents

I need some ideas for gifts for our parents?

Re: Gift Ideas For Parents

  • I'm giving my grandma and FILs a square photo vase from the knot. They were about $35 I think. We'll put a picture of us from our E-pic session in the spot, and we'll go to the store the morning of the RD to get fresh flowers. We're going to give the gifts in private, same goes for WP gifts. 

    My dad isn't contributing, but I thought I'd still get him a little something like a card and maybe a gift card or something golf related.

  • Mom- Kate Spade bag(buying during a popup sale 75% off)/photo frame
    Stepdad- unsure
    Dad- Maybe a bottle of Crown Cask 16

    FI is in charge of his own parents.  I bought an extra photo frame just in case.

    [QUOTE]IDK about all the parents right now, but I'm getting my dad some <strong>cufflinks I found on Etsy</strong> that say "dad, I will always be your little girl" and "I will love you forever Dad".   :D I think I'm going to get my mom one of the embroidered hankies, like chickenbut, but I'm undecided still. Not sure about FI's parents.  They are hard to shop for.  lol

  • Since my parents have made a very generous donation to our wedding, I plan on getting them a 2-3 nights stay at a B&B or hotel. Something within driving distance so they don't have to pay to fly. I've been combing Living Social & Groupon for deals. 

    My FI wants to get a watch for his dad (which we'll get on Rue La La) and we're going to get a necklace & skincare products for his mom. 

    I also bought some fabulous silver plated frames (on Rue La La again) to put wedding pictures in for them later.

  • I plan on getting my mom something to the spa a probably a massage and something else. Shell need after hosting about 8 family members at her house the weekend of the wedding and being there for me the day of! My dad is impossible to shop for - he likes baseball and eating at nice restaurants an not much else. Maybe I'll try and find some nice cufflinks for the day of and something else. Fi is in charge of his parents

  • We're going to get a nice "parent album" of our wedding photos for each set of parents.  I know my mom will be really excited!

  • Parent gifts are something I was not really familiar with in my area.  When I got married my parents and grandparents just got a special photo album.

    When my first daughter got married all I really wanted was the pics, but she gave me a pair of beautiful gemstone earrings and a gift certificate for our fav restaurant to DH.

    IMHO nice photo frames, gift cert. to a weekend getaway, spa, or restaurant are always a good idea.  ;)

    <div>Forgot to include this! We're doing these too, and I'm making a photo book for my MOH as an extra thank you and a sentimental gift. </div>

  • We got each set of parents a beautiful crystal bowl since they are both contributing to the wedding and we will also give them wedding albums once they are ready.

  • Thanks for all the ideas. I was thinking a personalized photo frame or photo book, but I think i have a few more ideas too now.
