    What is everyone getting as a gift for your parents and fiances parents?

     

    I am having a hard time with this because my mom is not a jewelry person or likes typical "girly" things. My parents in general are hard to get gifts for!

     

    Any and all ideas would be great :)

     

    Thanks!

          I got embroidered hankys for all the parents.  May not be a great idea for all the dads out there, but my dad always carries one and I knew he's like it.  (He's a softy.  Haha.)  FI and I will also give them a canvas of their choice as a gift after the wedding.  This was just a small thing for the day of.  I also like the idea of a family excursion or something.  Here's what my hankys say - and they all have Love, Amanda and our wedding date underneath:

           

          For my mom:  "To dry your tears as you have always dried mine."

           

          My dad:  "You will always be the first man I ever loved."

           

          FI's mom:  "Thank you for raising the man of my dreams."

           

          FI's dad:  "Thank you for your example of a husband and father.  I am blessed to marry your son."

           

          Not for everyone but great for us!

               I love the hanky idea and the quotes you chose! Unfortunately its not really my parents' thing:/

               

              Thanks for sharing!

                Has anyone done something for their parents while on the trip? I was thinking about a resort credit for massage or activity or a dinner cruise...but would hate to do that and them not really want to use it:/

                 

                Has anyone made or purchased a picture frame/wall hanging with a cute quote? I have seen some online but none I love...

                I really want to get my dad a two part picture frame that says at the top "Daddy's Girl" and has two photos: one that has a picture of me as a little girl with the date and the other on my wedding day with our date.

                  Yea this was what I was wanting to do too. Or with the quote "Today a bride, tomorrow a wife, forever your little girl" to give to both parents. There are some on Etsy (like this one), but think they are kinda of expensive ($70) and don't really love it. Thinking about making it myself...

                    We're thinking of giving both of our parents a wedding album, it won't be until after the wedding but we know for sure it's something that they'll love. I also love the frame above from Etsy!
