I always think gift certificates are nice so they can have a nice date after the wedding is over. Either a restuarant or a theater or I know one person that got airline gift cert for parents that travel a lot.

We got my parents a weekend’s stay at a nice oceanfront resort.

Not sure what we’re getting FI’s parents yet.

@adw2c: I suggest to many of our brides that they have their wedding invitation professionally framed for their parents and include either their engagement photo or a wedding photo (.i.e bridal portrait) as well. Good Luck!

Of course. Imo, the couple should always get the parents something, even if its just a small token of thanks for raising them.

We’re getting both sets of parents a gift certificate to bnbfinder.com. This site sells gift certificates that can be used at hundreds (maybe thousands) of bed and breakfasts all over the country. We live in Upstate, NY, not far from the VT border, so we figure they’ll probably redeem their gc’s at a B&B somewhere up there.

Neither set of parents ever really get away so we wanted to treat them to a mini vacation after the stresses of our wedding are over. We’re planning on $200 each so that should get them either 2 nights at a decent B&B (with them paying for the remainder) or 1 night in a really nice B&B. After they decide when and where they’re going, we’re going to call ahead and arrange to pay for a nice dinner for them.

We framed copies of our wedding invitations for them.  They really liked them!
