Gifts for the parents?

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone, 

 

Is anyone buying gifts for the parents, just a a Thank you for all you do type thing? Our wedding is sort of turning into a starfish themed wedding, and so i found these really cute starfish necklaces in Etsy, and i bought them for my Fiance's Mom, and one for my Mom. My Dad collects pocket watches, but i can't seem to find a pocket watch with a starfish or anything close to... i have googled and searched everywhere.. and i have had no luck. What would be another appropriate but special gift i could get for him? ( or does anyone know where i could find a starfish pocket watch.. hehehe) 

 

Or is anyone doing this at all??

 

Anyway your help and guidance would be greatly appreciated :)

 

Thanks!

How about attaching a starfish to a pocketwatch?  I'm not very crafty but I don't see how you couldn't glue one on the front.  Or how about taking a pocketwatch to a watch specialist and have them replace the face with a starfish logo face?  Or engrave a starfish with your message onto a pocketwatch?

I found really nice starfish necklaces on eBay, and I bought them for all my bridesmaids, my MOH, my mom and my future mother in law, and me!

 

For my Dad and for his Mother, we are thinking of having little plaques with a photo (like me+dad on mine and him+his mom on his) with some lyrics from Because you Loved Me, which is the song we're going to do the father/daughter dance to and present them after that dance after saying thank you for being such a special part of our lives and bringing us up like this, etc... like a get your kleenex out sorta moment rolleyes.gif

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
