Parent's gifts! Help!

Recommended Posts

So our wedding is in 41 days and I have no clue what to give my parents (i have two sets of parents) and my FI's parents at our wedding. I really don't even know where to begin on parent gifts. I have looked through a lot of wedding sites and so and I have seen handkerchiefs and frames and so on. But none of those things really excite me.

 

What did you get/give to your parents on your wedding day? What about step parents?

 

Thanks for you help!!!

OK, hadn't even thought about a gift to my parents. Is this still the norm? Or with people (like me) paying for our wedding ourselves is it less common to give parents a present?

This is one of the last major things on my list. This weekend I bought my mom and FMIL a Blessings Bowl® - Welcome but I have no idea what to give my father. I only have 2 weeks left and I have no ideas. The traditional stuff does not excite me either. We are paying for the wedding ourselves but our parents are traveling and giving us gifts. I think it is more sentimental.

We wanted something to give to them on the day of that they would use! We are giving them the photo albums that I will have made for Mother and Father's days.

 

For the day of we are giving the dads monogrammed travel bags filled with their favorites.

 

For the moms we are giving them spa wraps (in wedding colors), waffle weave cosmetic bags, and totes that will all be monogrammed.

 

We just figured this way we have time to get the special albums done with not too much stress on us!

We are thinking of digital picture frames - loaded with tons of wedding photos - the nice thing is that they range in price so they really fit any budget.. and it's a bit of a twist on an original..

I was at a wedding where they took the mom and dads wedding picture and had all of their baby pictures put together (almost as little pixels) and the baby pictures made up the parents' wedding picture. It was so cool.

We did digital frames for both set of our parents. We got them @ Bed,Bath & Beyond with a 20% coupon and they had a mail in rebate... very good deal! I think a 7 inch was $85.00. We loaded them with special pictures from the wedding and with each of us growing up. We made mine with my baby pics & my husband's with his baby pics. Mine had the song I danced with my dad to playing and my husband's had the song that he danced with his mom to playing. Great gift they can use for years to come.

My plan is to give our parents picture frames like this:

 

Click the image to open in full size.

 

For FI's parents, the first picture will be of him as a child and the second will be one of us together. For my mom and step-father and my father it will be of me as a child and then me with FI.

 

That's the plan so far. I'll post when it's done :)pinkie.gif

I'm not doing anything!! Usually in the UK I think the mothers get a bunch of flowers.

 

My parents won't be there and FMIL could be on fire for all I care lol

 

FI did say we were going to get her a pic of us from the wedding photographer. I quickly corrected him and said HE was I wasn't contributing lmao

 

I think its just personal preferrence, but I would say something small and meaningful as opposed to really expensive and useless - only my thoughts tho

    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
