i got my dad a hankerceif with the verse:
“today a bride, tomorrow a wife, forever your little girl” and our wedding date embroidered on it in our wedding colours.

he loved it (burst into tears when he opened it!!) and has it framed next to our wedding photos on their mantel.

laceydoilies:  We bought a watch box for DH’s father – he has a lot of watches but no where to store them – he would ususally just leave them on top of his dresser scattered. So it was a good idea for him.  (my father passed away-so I got my mom and sister a charm to hang on their bouquet/corsage)

I got my dad these cufflinks, that’s me and my dad when I was a baby 🙂

He will only use them for the wedding, but I had no clue what to get him.  I got my mom a Kate Spade Mom Idiom bracelett, and an 8×10 Kate Spade silver frame, I plan on taking a photo of me and the groom holding my parents wedding photo to send them after the wedding for the frame, so the frame kinda doubles as a gift for both of them.

Does your dad love sports?  How about tickets to a football/baseball/basketball game for just the 2 of you.  I do this with my father and my son a lot of times for father’s day and it is an awesome bonding experience for the 3 of us.  Your dad might like an afternoon with you!

I got my parents a frame with the “Today a bride, tomorrow a wife, forever your little girl” quote on it.  For my dad individually I got a tie bar on etsy with his initials on the front and <3 my nickname on the back.  I also got his tie for the wedding.  He was in the Navy so it had battleships on it and happened to be in the wedding colors so it was perfect.

My dad is impossible to shop for too.  I got him a picture frame from from Kohls with the words “no matter how old, i’ll always be daddy’s girl” to put a father/daughter dance pic in after the wedding.

I’m getting my dad dress socks that say “father of the bride” and a tie to wear on wedding day.  After the wedding, I’ll get my parents canvas prints of wedding pics.
