Can you make them photo books with your wedding photos once you get them back? That’s what we did. I used Paint to make a caption on top of one of our engagement photos that says “We owe you a wedding album!” and I framed the photo, and gave one to my parents and one to my DH’s parents. You can look for coupons online for Shutterfly or many other photo book companies, and make them a photo book as cheap as $20 with a bunch of your wedding photos. My parents LOVED the idea and it’s  very personal and will last a long time – if you have ~$40 to make two photo books, then go for it!

Yep I think photo books are a great idea! One of the bloggers, I think it was Mrs. Mole, did some awesome ones for their parents.

Photo books/albums are an excellent idea.

Another thing you could consider: My DH’s family always prefers to give either consumables or experiences for gift-giving occasions (because they already have enough “stuff” and limited storage space to accumulate more). So, they give things like theatre tickets, tickets to sporting events, bottles of wine, foods that are the local specialty of a place they’ve visited, etc. Would something like that work for you guys? A gift basket of goodies or a pair of tickets to do something/go somewhere?

I second the consumable/experience idea.  What about a gift card to their favorite restaurant?

We’re purchasing wedding albums for both sets of parents through our photographer. That is what we’re giving for gifts.

Might steal @Mrs. Wallaby: ‘s idea with the photoframe!

Agreed, I am thinking of doing a little wedding photo book, its a simple thank you and a sweet gesture for them to hold onto.
