I’m interested in responses here, as our cake is a gift from FI’s boss’ wife. I have no idea how to get her something meaningful enough!

The savings bond is a great idea, but if it won’t work out for technical reasons, you could instead just write them a check and tell them what it’s for. I know they’d still haev to do the actual setting up of the account themselves, but you’d be contributing to it.

A friend of ours was the officiant at our wedding and we knew he wouldn’t accept any payment, so what we’re going to be doing is writing him a check with a blank ‘To’ line that he can give to any charity of his choice.

I think you should treat it like a regular wedding gift (presumably, she won’t be getting you another gift) and just write a very heartfelt, personal thank you note.

I agree that I would write a heartfelt, personal thank-you note. If I were giving someone a gift of that kind (like a cake), I’d want them to take it without going into any trouble in return. A thank-you would be enough for me.

A heartfelt thank you note would make me happy “enough”!

I agree that a thank you note would suffice. If you still want to give something to her son you could get a share of stock in his name. I have done this with Disney stock for kids in our family.
