I want to give my mom and stepdad tickets to ballet/symphony/opera/something like that. They enjoy that sort of thing. not sure what we’re doing about the other two sets of parents yet.

We’re planning on gifting both sets of parents with gift certificates to BnBfinder.com. It’s a site that sells gc’s that can be used at hundreds of B&B’s all over the country (US – not sure where you’re located). We live in Upstate, NY, close to the VT border, so I think they’ll probably opt to go there. 

We liked this idea because it gives us the oppertunity to give them a mini vacay after the stresses of our wedding are over. Neither set of parents really ever go away so I thought this would be a nice treat for them. After they decide when and where they’re going, we plan to somehow arrange to pay for a nice dinner for them. We’re also going to add a little DIY coupon for free dog sitting since boths sets have pups. 

No offense to anyone who went the keepsake route but those just don’t inspire me at all. My mother is the least sentimental person I know so any keepsake would be completly wasted on her. My FMIL would pretend to love it but probably never look at it again.

We are giving both mothers a 3 stone light blue sapphire (the stone in my ring) necklace to represent FI’s family, my family and then a stone to represent the new family that will be started on our wedding day. Both dads love to garden so we are giving them a white flowering dogwood tree that will bloom every July (the month we are getting married) to remind them how much we love and appreciate them. We are doing photobooks for Christmas presents.
