I got my parents a gift cert to bedandbreakfast.com this way they can choose the night they go, location, and pick one that sounds good to them.   They love B&B’s so this was an easy choice.  Our other thoguht was broadway tickets, but we didn’t want to choose the time and date for them.  We got his parents tickets to a red sox game as they are huge fans.

Good luckE

P.S. after i purchased it online i saw a $100 gift cert to same place at my local costco for $80–might help out as well.  Altough i was able to personalize the hard gift card with their wedding picture on it only through the website

does it have to be at the rehearsal dinner? you could give them a photo album afterwards of the photos from the wedding (and leading up to it). that would be a nice personal touch.

My sister did a gift certificate to one of Philly’s five-star restaurants.  We MIGHT do something similar.

We gave both his parents and my parents GPS machines.  It was great for my mom who is terrible when it comes to driving (even though she’s lived in the same place for over 15 years) and my in-laws loved it because they could use it since they flew in from out-of-town.  It was great for getting around and going places on their own when we couldn’t accomodate them.

We got our parents tickets to see Ron White (Comedy) in Red Bank. It’s a fun night out for the 4 of them, but they didn’t have to travel into the city. I think there are still tickets available for Oct 4th, 2 shows that night!

bedandbreakfast.com is having a 10% off sale on their gift certificates until September 15th. So, if you buy a $100 gift certificate, it will only cost you $90.

Has anyone used this site and personalized the card with a picture? It sounds like a good idea, but I worry that it won’t come out right.

If they don’t have a digital camera, I think that would be great. FI’s mom is always using disposable cameras… a dig would be so easy to use.

Just a question — are you only getting a special gift for HIS parents? Will your parents be there/involved also and may get offended?

I was thinking a professional wedding album/coffee table book.  My photographers do that as part of the package and its beautiful!  Its something they can keep foever!  Plus a GC to a nice restaurant or a weekend trip!
