Gifts for parents

Recommended Posts

ok i talked to jose about the vow renewal thing, and he immediately said no. he said its totally not their style, they will be completely embarassed and that his dad would totally kill him for it. im not really convinced that his mom wouldnt like it, but if thats what he says, it has to be something else.

 

i feel like there really is no gift large enough or appropriate enough for them and i dunno what to do. ffil already has a pocketwatch, and fmil wont wear a locket because its totally not her style. goddddddd. who woulda thought buying for your inlaws was sooooo hard! i appreciate the ideas gals, keep em coming if you come up with anything!

What about a weekend away somewhere, like suggested above?

 

I think buying gifts for people is sometimes one of the hardest things!

 

A day at the spa for some pampering?

its hard to do a weekend away for them first because they live in mexico. everywhere they like to go, they have friends who have houses where they can stay. we definitely want it to be something they can enjoy together, so a spa day is only something his mom would enjoy.

this is so freakin hard. i usually am so good and finding gifts for them. huh.gif

I like the idea of flying them out to Chicago and maybe getting them a really nice hotel while they visit you. Or maybe another place in the states like vegas (they can watch a show like the beatles cirque de soliel or mama mia).

This might sound small too? I am buying the mothers and grandma a spa package from Suzanne Morel the day before the wedding to help them relax. When I figure out more I will let you know?

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
