I’m not sure, but if I were her I think giving her a spa voucher and babysitting her kids when she goes would be a nice thought?

Depends on her personality a lot.

I would just send a thank you card. If she’s not a bridesmaid you don’t need to give her a gift.

 

I would give the kids gifts at the rehearsal dinner as a thank you – you could get them both something little and then give a contribution to an education fund or something that is for them, but also a nice thing for their parents?

@aussiebride26:  I was about to write the exact same thing, but then it seems odd to give a gift to someone for giving you a wedding gift… haha

@NLbride:  I must’ve skipped over that part! Well in that case, maybe a card will do fine, and since she spent so much, just a nice present for her next bday or xmas?

@May2013Wedding:  I’d say that’s enough. It’s her gift to you for your wedding, so a thank you is all that is necessary. But if you feel like doing more, maybe just offering your time to babysit some day/night so she can have some time off would be a nice gesture – that way it’s showing your appreciation without actually giving a gift persay.

 

 

@aussiebride26:  I read it, and still thought that would be a great idea, but then I started thinking about when to give it, logistically, and it hit me that it might be strange to give a gift because you got a gift. It kind of defeats the purpose of the first gift.

I think the gifts to her children and a nice thank you card is all you need!
