So I still have 7 months to go… But I just finished all of my Bridesmaids gifts and now I feel its time to think about the mother/father gifts !
But I feel clueless?! Can anyone throw some ideas on what they have bought for them? Thanks !!!

- Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall
FFIL got him a sign with a tractor on it and some gourmet popcorn, FOB got a canvas print of his show car and a Ford t-shirt.
I went more sentimental for the moms. But the dads just aren’t that way in my case.

We got dad a watch (he didn’t have a dressy watch) and a Brighton clutch for mom to use. They both used them for the wedding and have used them since, which was cool! 🙂

Those are some elaborate gifts!
Eeep, we’re giving all the parents stiched hankies, the mom’s are also going to get a brooch with a picture of them with their respective child i.e. MOB will get a pin with her and my FI as a kid. My guardian will get a pin with she and I when I was little, and same for my aunt another guest of honor.
As thank you gifts, we’re sending all the parents and guests of honor electronic frames with a bunch of pics from the wedding and e-parties etc.

I’ve seen embroidered hankies on Etsy that say “thank you for raising your son to be the kind of man I want to marry” or something close, and am hoping my daughter will want to give them to her FILs.

Not getting married for a while, but I do know what I’m getting my FMIL. I’m going to take an engagement portrait that no one else will have seen and put in in a special frame for her that will say “Thank you for raising the man of my dreams.”

Etsy has some great ideas! I’m thinking about getting my parents and FMIL a picture frame along the lines of this:
Love this for my bio dad and dad (won’t get the same, but along similiar lines
I do also want to get my FMIL, parents, and bio dad the personalized hankies as well. 🙂
