I think it’s best to buy something you’d buy for any other occassion, not necessarily something wedding related. What would you get them for Christmas or an anniversary gift? 

For her wedding, my cousin got her mom some awesome candle sticks that were Mexican pottery. Pretty cream doves with gold designs on them. It was very “her mom” and she kept them on her table every single day from then on. It had nothing to do with the wedding, really, but was something she knew her mom would enjoy. If my mom was alive I’d probably get her some kind of artwork or jewlery. Dad is more sentimental/traditional, so I’ll be doing the classic framed picture of us thing.

Can you give them an experience rather than a thing? Perhaps go wine tasting or skydiving or hot air ballooning?

Everdeen:  +1. I think an experience would be great. Something you can all do together would be fun, you should check out Living Social and Groupon for local ideas 🙂

I’m thinking about getting seeds, bulbs, or potted plants of my wedding flowers and giving them to my mother and FMIL.  <br /><br />I would like to do an engraved leatherman for my FFIL and my Dad.
