Okay, so probably overly dramatic, but I’m having a super hard time thinking of gifts for our parents. I don’t want to do anything related to photos, because photo books are going to be Christmas presents this year… but I need something for gifts.
My mom and her fiance: They travel a lot, she is paying for the food and alcohol at the reception, he is paying for the cake and flowers.
Dad: Into astronomy, science, history, he is giving us a lump of cash to do with as we please.
FIs parents: Both women, Eco friendly, in the medical field, they are giving us our honeymoon, rehersal dinner, and gave us a car!
I want to do something special for these people & I don’t know what to do. We don’t have a TON of money to spend & they pretty much have EVERYTHING.
Do you guys have any suggestions, what are you doing?

I am not sure what my fiance plans on giving his parents, but I think I am going to give my parents engraved hanky’s and then probably a bridal portrait on a canvas. It isn’t much, but I know they will treasure it. They, too, have everything so I am going more for the sentimental approach.

I think we decided yesterday that we are going to do hand painted wine glasses and two bottles of our favorite wine. They can enjoy the wine, and remember the occasion with the glasses. Then we’ll get them all some Jamacian rum when on our honeymoon.

I like the wine idea! Everyone loves a good bottle of wine.

@ejs4y8- Thats such a great website. My FI is in construction and I just saw the hammer/bottle opener that I think a lot of the guys would get a kick out of if we put them with their gifts.
