Parents' gifts suggestions

Recommended Posts

I searched for a thread for parents gifts and was unable to find what I was looking for in previous threads. So I figured I'd start fresh with my own thread. My parents are paying for the majority of our wedding. I want to give them a gift with meaning not an engraved pen, or an personalized bath robe. What are you giving your parents as a gift? All suggestions wll help.

We really truggled because the usual gifts were horrible for our parents. we also didnt want to spend more on one than the other. Our parents were all so different so it was very hard! We've decided on deluxe picnic coolers. My parents ride their 4-wheelers out in the mountains to have lunch all the time so it woulld work welll for them. Joes parents are always traveling around the world and they always have a bag w/ wine, sandwich stuff, cheese, etc. So we are getting them a picnic cooler that holds a bottle of wine and glasses. We'll have them embroidered w/ their last names.

For my parents we are getting Reidel wine glasses since they love wine but dont have nice glasses. For FI's mom we are paying for her whole trip (Flight and hotel) and may get something small

I am struggling in this area too! One of my cousins and his bride gave their parents photobooks from their photographer and they were a hit but I would like something to give before the pictures come in.

I'm having a hard time with this too.

We have decided to surprise our parents with a romantic breakfast in bed at the resort the morning after the wedding.

Then, I was thinking of giving my mom a photobook of us from earlier years until the wedding and my dad a photoframe of the same idea. I won't be able to give this until after the wedding though. I was also hoping that I could give something to them at the wedding or before.

i had a hard time with this too. i had a hard time finding them a gift "together" so i got them both a separate gift. its depends on how much you want to spend and what your parents are into, if they collect anything, etc. like my dad likes watches so i decided to get him an antique looking pocket watch, engraved. i got my mom a wooden musical jewelry box, the tune is somewhere over the rainbow, she loves that song.

 

heres a nice website someone on bdw gave me, sorry i cant remem who, but its great.

swarovski has really beautifull frames too. If there are stores near you, check it out, they have things in store that are not on line.

 

you could do a nice photo album or something too.

my mom is easy b/c she absolutely looooves earrings, but I have no idea what to get for my dad! He's one of those guys who only ever wants what he needs, but everything he needs he already has!

 

I would have done the whole photo album thing, but we're living in the US for a few years while my FI goes to school and I don't have access to any photos sad.gif

 

Also, how does it work with my fiance's parents? Do I get them gifts...does he get them gifts...do we both get them gifts, or do we get them gifts together?

    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
