@McBezel:  To be total honest with you, I think it’s going to be near impossible to get something that both a 2 year old and an 8 year old would like. Why not just pick up some cool, age appropriate gifts from Toys’R’Us. Really, that’s what they would probably like the most, and it would help them stay occupied at the reception. After all, I don’t really think kids enjoy truly “useful” stuff. 

That’s just my opinion though. I want to know what the other Mama bees think!

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  +1.  Just get them each a fun toy that’s age-appropriate.  Take 30 minutes at Toys R Us or Amazon.com.  (I agree that something labeled “ring bearer” is the worst idea EVER.)  

We got ours a superhero Lego set.

@lolot:  Oh yeah. I don’t know why I didn’t say Amazon, lol. I buy everything on Amazon and that’s way more efficient.

Ditto to the above. Children really don’t care about items that will remind them of their role in your wedding. They want toys.

@McBezel:  If you’re feeling sentimental, an age-appropriate book would both be something to keep them occupied during pictures and the reception, and you could write the date and a message inside the cover- “Dear Hunter, thank you for being part of our wedding, love Aunt McBezel and Uncle McBezel”.




Edit to add: obviously a different book for each of the kids- a two year old board book is not right for an eight year old, of course.
