can you do a joint gift, like a gift card to their favorite restaurant or play tickets, and then give fmil something small in addition? or you could do the joint gift and write her a nice card from the 2 of you.

Stephanie8904:  Your FMIL is being ridiculous. This guy is not your FI’s dad so he doesn’t get anything on fathers’ day.

Are your and his biological dads in the picture? For us, fathers’ day is about the dads, not my mother’s husband. I’d tell her no, we can’t make it to the fathers’ day dinner, we are seeing our dads.

If you mean wedding gifts, I don’t see why he gets a gift. You don’t get a gift for being the spouse of someone in the wedding party. It’s like getting a gift for the MOH’s husband. That said, you could avoid drama by getting them a combined gift.
