Hey Bees! For awhile now, I’ve been struggling with what (if anything) to get my Future Father-In-Law as a wedding gift.
Background info, in the event any of this is helpful: My FI’s parents are not contributing financially to the wedding (which is completely okay). My Fiance will be covering the cost of the rehearsal dinner without his parents, along with the cost of their flight, car rental, and hotel room for the wedding. I did get FI’s mother a gift, because she’s easy to buy for and her love language is gifts. I figured it would be a nice gesture. I have also gotten my mom a gift.
At this point, I don’t have anything for either father (mine or FI’s), and nothing clearly sticks out. His dad likes wine, but tends to drink primarily cheaper reds and is picky enough that any attempt on our part to pick something as a “nice wine” gift would likely fail epically. He already has every alcohol-related tool and glass you could think of (decanters, crystal glasses, the rabbit wine opener, etc). I did think about a gift subscription to Club W, which has the benefits of being easy to pack up and take home, and also gives him carte blanche to choose what wine(s) he prefers.
He’s not a terribly sentimental man either, so a lot of the sweet/remembrance-oriented things one could do are kind of a non-option. We got him tickets to the Yankees once, because he loves baseball, which I guess we could do again, but last time he griped about the dates we selected, the seats we selected, etc.
Any fabulous ideas, bees? Is is awkward if only the mothers receive gifts?
