@GAPeachyBee:  I love the idea of spa gift certificates, particularly if it’s something they might love!

We are doing a little tote bag for my aunt, who is helping us a lot (not monetarily) with the wedding and family party later. The tote is an adorable personalized bag, and it will include some alcohol and food she likes, some kind of wedding ornament, and one or two other little things to fill out the bag. I am also taking my aunt to get her nails done before the wedding with the rest of the girls (mom, FMIL, FSIL, BFF).

Our basic “recipe” for gifts has been: something wedding-y (ring dish, ornament, engraved collar stays), something they can do later (spa or restaurant gift certificate), special food or drink that they like, and one or two fun items (flask, compact).

@GAPeachyBee:  I’m in the same sort of dilemma. I will never be able to repay them for the generosity they have shown us. We’ve decided to write letters/thank you notes expressing our gratitude and many other things.
