So I am trying to come up with an idea for wedding gifts for my mother and future mother in law. I really like the embroidered hankerchief idea that you see on Pinterest all the time, but I am still struggling with what else to get them to go along with it. So tell me what you are giving the moms! I need ideas!

I am struggling with this as well! We have hankerchiefs for the moms, but would really like something else to go with it. I have a few weeks, but need to figure it out soon!

I really really struggled with this for a while and wanted to do something nice and sentimental.
For parents we are just getting each set of parents a gift card to their favorite restaurant to have dinner together after the craziness of the wedding is over. My mom helped a lot (with DIY and emotionally) and I wanted to get her a little something special. I found a handmade wooden music box on etsy where you could choose a bunch of different songs. They had the song she used to sing me to sleep with when I was young. So i’m getting her that and it has “Mom” carved in the top. I know she’ll cry 😉
I was trying to think sentimental for my mom but the hankerchief may be enough sentimental for you?
Maybe a spa/mani/pedi gift card if they are in to that sort of thing?
I even thought about giving my mom a “girls day” together. Since I don’t live close by anymore I know she misses all the time we used to spend together so maybe a designated day for just you two (or three and include your MIL if they get along!) that you plan and pay for and just enjoy being together?
This was one of the hardest gifts for me, so good luck!

Mizzbouvier14: I bought my mum a pair of white gold and aquamarine oval stud earrings, and then a silver, aquamarine and silver-coloured drusy pendant (her outfit was pale silver/grey so they went really nicely with it and she wore them on the day), plus her favourite chocolates. We also bought my parents tickets to the opera; I’ll be going with them and will also be treating them to dinner and champagne.
I think it’s nice to get something personal/individual to them, rather than more generic gifts, but that’s just me 🙂

We will provide them with wedding albums (after the wedding)

sumshine.dawn: I LOVE that!!!!!!!
barbie86: Yeah, maybe a night out for each of them on seperate occassions. That sounds like a really good idea. I will have to run that by FI. 🙂
thelittleone: I am doing that as well! But I am giving them as Christmas gifts this year.

Mill: That is a good idea. My mom isnt so much into spas, but I think a girls day sounds great. Any excuse to go do a little shopping, drink wine and eat out is always acceptable for me!
