Photo books are nice gifts. You might also give them a card with a promise to visit them after the honeymoon and make them dinner. Time with both of you is probably more valuable to them than anything!

I’m in the same boat. I feel like his parents will be upset at us if we spend money on them, while my parents would be a little hurt if we didn’t make some kind of gesture to express our appreciation. I have some ideas of sentimental things I can do for my own parents, but I’m really stuck with the in-laws, especially since they asked us not to do anything.

Sorry that wasn’t helpful – just wanted to say this is a great question and I’m interested to see what responses you get!

Agreed!  Most parents don’t need any “thing”.  I think a photo book of both sets of photos (engagement and wedding) would be perfect!  I also like the idea of making them dinner!  Small things like that are what really makes a person feel loved and appreciated!

Same here – my parents don’t want us to get them anything, but we both really want to show our gratitude to them.  We’ll be getting them a parents album but in addition, we want to get them tickets to a show as well as a dinner.
