I don’t think it matters.  Our gifts were jointly given, but we each wrote cards to our parents separately.

I think you could probably get away with doing it however you want. Are you giving them during the rehearsal dinner? I think if you both stood up, and said some nice things together about how much you love and appreciate your parents, and then you said “FMIL, thank you so much for … blah blah personal things…” and then give her the gift, it won’t seem weird. And he can do the same for your dad. If you both stand up together, it’ll be clear the gifts are coming from both of you, but since you specifically picked it out, you should be the one to explain and pass over the gift.

Kacie209:  FH and I are going to give the gifts to our parents together. I don’t think you need to split up the gift giving unless you’d like to.

We are giving our gifts to people privately since each gift is different.
