Parent Gifts

Recommended Posts

Kind of the same as Kelly in that Brian and I paid completely for the wedding on our own, so I didn't feel a need for any real gift.

 

I did however make them hardcover albums on Snapfish as a little memento gift. They came out nicely.

What can I get my parents instead of a hankie? I mean I kind of like the idea....but not really - someone had posted some really awesome poems on here that I would like to give them...with something else - still trying to come up with ideas!

For the fathers (and Jeremy) we got them all monogrammed handkerchiefs from Exclusively weddings.

 

For his mom and stepmom we got them ladies hankies with little pearls sewen around them.

 

For my mom I got her a little silver tissue box from Jean M that had a mirror inside and it is engraved with a poem on the outside.

We also wrote cards for all of them.

Gosh, I haven't really thougth of anything good yet. I am making big beach bags for both sets of parents for before the trip and filling with things like lotion, passport covers, towels, travel size toiletries, tshirts i'm having made with our logos and mother of bride, groom, etc. But i haven't thought of anything else to give them yet.

Sam gave my mom a really nice cashmere pashmina and a starfish broach from swarovski. We gave her boyfriend (who is essentially my step-dad) an engraved lighter and a hankie. I gave my mom a monogrammed hankie with a really sweet poem. I thought it was going to be cheesy, but she loved it :)

Good post....I've been wondering exactly the same thing. We are taking my parents for a nice dinner this Sat. (they paid for my dress) and then I want to make them a shutterfly book when we get back from Jamaica of pictures from the whole week, not just the wedding.

 

I may get them something in Jamaica too but I have been so torn about "what".

I will probably do some sort of photo album for them after the wedding and AHR are done. Matt's mom is a picture, you know what. I can't call her that word. :-) And my mom has said that she wanted one also... I told Matt that he needs to think up something for the dads.

Oh I have no clue. I saw this nice frame from swarovski but not sure b/c my sister just got married in sept and got them those digital frame things.

 

The saying that was posted below is cute..."To remember the day you gave me away" ...maybe I can incorporate that somehow into a gift.

 

Hmmm ORR they love stained glass, maybe I can get them a piece with a peacock on it since I'm doing peacock feathers with the flowers and all. Kinda like alil reminder, is that cheesey? I have a lot of time ti think it over I guess.
