What should we give my parents for a gift??

Recommended Posts

My parents have very generously given us money to help pay for the wedding so I'd like to get them a nice gift to say thank you. Any ideas??

 

What have other brides done?

 

Should I do a sentimental keepsake or a fun gift like a couples message and a candlelight dinner on the beach?

I think the massage and dinner would be nice, or you could take them on some kind of excursion that they would like and that way you can spend some time with them alone as a thank you.

Oh, I like the idea of an excursion. I bet they would love to do a zip line! ( I know that sounds weird to say about one's parents but it's true). They are super romantic though so that's what made me think massage and dinner on the beach.

I think it all depends on your parents. My parents would hate a massage and would probably freak out at the thought of having one. (They've never had one)..

 

A great keepsake would be a photobook with pictures off your family at your wedding or on their vacation.

 

With that said, we gave our MOH/BM (married couple) a couples massage on the beach at Dreams and they loved it.. complete with champagne and strawberries afterward.

 

I thought the dinner on the beach option was overpriced for what it was.. we saw a couple just off from where we were eating and it didn't look super fabulous, but having not done it, couldn't say.

I know how you feel; we were completely stumped on what to get my parents (they paid for our wedding too). We decided to make them a scrap book with all the photos in it from the wedding.

 

We’re also looking into getting them a digital picture frame with the professional pictures loaded on it.

I love the digital picture frame idea! that might be a winner. I've planned on doing a photo album all along b/c on of the things they are paying for is the photographer but this would be great b/c they have a ton of amazing photos that just sit on their computer.

THanks for the idea!

I would just like to say that I too LOVE the digital picture frame idea and it has been stored in my "great ideas" folder. Thanks so much for this thread!!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
