I was torn with this. I wanted to do something sentimental but couldn’t really think of anything. I just got cards for everyone and both moms are getting a parent album from our wedding. I might also get a personalized frame engraved with a professional wedding pic. Our wedding is also the day before mother’s day so we got them something nice for mother’s day.

I wanted to get our moms something really nice and ended up using a friend’s discount at Tiffany.  Then we got a simpler necklace for FI’s stepmom, and for my dad and (evil) stepmom, we just got them a vase.  Easier and cheaper, plus I just couldn’t bring myself to get my stepmother an individual gift.

Something sentimental is always nice… I was considering a nice picture frame with a note framed inside of it, and then they could put replace it with a wedding picture later on.  And I guess the above is just a reminder that if you have any friends with discount connections, don’t be afraid to use them!  I still overspent on gifts, but we wouldn’t have been able to afford anything nearly as nice on our own.  I knew my parents were kind of expecting nice gifts, but if yours aren’t, you don’t need to go crazy.

We are getting my parents a tree to plant and a gift certificate to a restaurant and of course wedding pics! They are paying for a bunch and we wouldn’t be doing it without them!.. FI’s parents didn’t help so we are not getting them anything.
