Gift Ideas for FI's Kids

Recommended Posts

So my FI and I have been together for 5 years. When we started dating his kids were 5 and 2. When we get married they will be almost 11 and 8. We are incorporating them into the ceremony. I am saying vows with them because in a sense I am marrying them too. I am getting a wedding band from my FI and one from them. But what do I give themhuh.gif We have been going round and round trying to come up with ideas. My best one has been an ID bracelet for each of them with a special message from me inscribed on the back.

 

I knew I could come here for some other ideas and you ladies could probably come up with some good ones. If you have one, send it my way!

I think I read that another BDW member is giving her FI's kids small gold rings too. This way it is like the whole family is getting married :) I thought that was adorable. Especially if you engrave something on the inside of their rings...like the wedding date...the date you all became a family.

Are they boys or girls, or boy and girl? I was watching Whose Wedding Is It Anyway the other day and saw a couple give their daughter a necklace with a heart locket. Inside the heart locket they put a picture of the couple. But I like the idea of the ID bracelet better!

Both kids are boys otherwise the locket and charm bracelet idea would be great! I thought about rings, but they are boys and those would be gone probably before we left cabo! I also have their mother to deal with. She likes to "make" them take off anything special that we get them and then they never seem to put it back on. I thought that with an ID bracelet, there is really not much need to take it off...they can swim, shower, surf and play baseball with it on - no real reason to take it off.

Will she not make them take off the id bracelet? Tell them when they get to 18 you'll get them a tattoo now that she can't make them take off lmao

 

How about asking them if there is anything they would like that way its their choice and there is no way a kid is going to let its mother make them give up something they chose and want lol

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
