i just came on to get ideas myself! so i figured i would at least bump your post.

my only thought so far was for my dad…i was thinking of getting a zippo lighter with his initials engraved on it and a box of cigars…even though i know nothing about cigars!

moms, maybe nice jewelry for the day of? not totally sure on that cuz what if they don’t like what i get? his dad, i have no idea!

i think since the parent albums would be a good bit after the wedding anyway that will be their christmas gift. so i want something for them to open up that day. our friends i know gave his parents a gift card to a restaurant and her favorite ice cream place down the shore. so gift cards for some place they like is good too.

i would love some different/creative ideas myself too!

We are having the same problem, and here is our solution:  We’re getting one of our engagement photos nicely framed, and that will be our gift to each set of parents at the rehearsal dinner.  We will also include a nice card with a note that their *real* thank you gift (small wedding albums) will be given to them after the wedding.

We are doing photos for Christmas this year – nice albums for everyone.. so I didn’t want to do anything photo related for the “thank you” gift.

So what we did was find really cool wine glasses.  Got two of each, a bottle of our favorite wine & a bottle stopper & we are putting them in a box w/ a thank you note.

My mom will be getting something a little extra for all the help planning!

I am putting together a frame that says “family” and has two spots for photos.  One spot I will fill with a hand written thank you note on paper that matches our colors.  The other spot I will fill with a couples photo of us.  I will also get a small bouquet of flowers or edible arrangement.
