At the rehearsal dinner, we gave the parents gifts – small albums with our engagement pics, and a t-shirt we had made on spreadshirt.com (Father of the… Mother of the… etc). They LOVED it, because they could wear the t-shirt on the wedding-eve harbor cruise we went on, the pics were really cute. We had them made for our siblings too (sister of the, brother of the).

We’re gifting each set of parents with a gift certificate to BnBfinder.com which is a site that sells gc’s that can be used at hundreds of different B&Bs all over the country. We live in Upstate, NY, not far from the VT border, so we assume they’ll probably redeem them at a B&B there. Our parents never really get away so we wanted to give them a mini vacay after all the help they’ve given us with our wedding (and lives). After they decide when and where they’re going, we also plan to arrange to pay for a nice dinner for them.

We gave our parents their gifts after the wedding.  We chose to get them a wedding album as their thank you gift.  🙂  They both love it!

We did thank you notes to them and tucked a “gift certificate” for a wedding album with their choice of pics designed by me inside.

We gave our parents a canvas print of any wedding photo of their choosing.  Obviously we could only initially gift them the “IOU/gift certificate” in a card – but they both LOVED the canvases once they got them after the wedding.

I’m going to get my mom and stepdad tickets to the ballet or symphony, since they love that sort of thing. Still working on what to get dad and stepmom and Future In-Laws.

I need help with this too! I see the photo albums are popular but I was hoping for something different! I can’t seem to find anything though, so we may just go with that
