I was wondering what gifts you are getting for your children when you get married. I have a 13 year old daughter who is my MOH, and I got her beautiful jewelry from Etsy. I am stumped on what to get my 9 year old son. Any ideas? thanks bees!

I know you can get engraved items from stores like Things Remembered. What a watch (even a pocket watch, if he’d think it was neat), or a money clip, wallet, or key chain? Depending on the kid, he might be interested in any of those- and you can probably get them personalized with some kind of message. Or, if he’s into things like stuffed animals (some 9-year-olds are, others aren’t), one of my friends got her ring bearer a teddy bear in wedding clothes.
What kinds of things does he really like? 9 is a hard age to buy for!

I am just now thinking this one through, but I’d love to do a family getaway this fall to universal/disney in orlando for a few days!

Here is what I have come up with. I found a silver picture frame that folds in two like a book. On one side I am having engraved with a quote I found and it will hold a picture of my son and I. the other side I had his full name engraved and it will hold pictures of him and his sister, him with his new stepfather, all of us together, and a picture of him with his dad. After all despite the divorce from his father we are ALL still family and this is the message I want him to understand. What do you think?

Prairyway – The picture frame is a great idea. It will mean something special now, and will continue to be something special as he grows up.

@prairyway I have a 14 yo daughter. Can you share the link to the Etsy seller and an idea of what you chose?

My son is 9 and my daughter is 8.
FI and I chose necklaces for him to present to each of them during the ceremony.
My daughter’s is a simple silver chain with 3 small silver rings.
My son’s is a Celtic triskel (3 swirls that come together). his is obviously more “manly” and is on a leather cord.
Both are to symbolize husband, wife, and children in the new family.

I got both of my kids (who were also our attendants) Swiss Army knives. They were thrilled. Then again, mine are grown; you wouldn’t want to do this for really young ones.
