FI and I both ave loving parents who have been so supportive during our wedding planning. We want to get them meaningful gifts, but have no idea what to get them! We are planning on giving them wedding albums for Christmas, but what can we get them for the wedding?
I was thinking a gift certificate to a nice restaurant or tickets to a play? Both of our parents are very comfortable financially at this point in their lives, so I am not sure what to give people who seem to have everything!

Maybe a nice photo frame? I would say the play tickets over a gift card. What about getting them personalized hankies for the wedding?

I like the personalized hanky idea and tickets to a play idea. I would also frame a picture of you and them from the wedding and write a really nice card saying how much you appreciate them.

@jaylii9: We did the restaurant gift certificates. We got them to a few places around their area since they’re huge on going out to dinner. It lasted them at least 6 months! They were really excited!

I think a restaurant voucher is a nice idea, or how about a couple nights in a nice hotel somewhere? Or a painting or piece of sculpture or something? I’m sure you’d find something lovely on Etsy, or in artist’s centres…

The gifts that you give to people who have everything are gifts that are high in the emotional category. So think about what is meaningful to your parents and start brainstorming some ideas.
For example, my parents are also well off and I use to struggle with what to get them for Christmas every year. I danced ballet all through my youth and nothing gave my parents more joy then to see me dance. So now we go to the ballet together every year for Christmas and get to reminisce about those years.
