Hey lady =-].

Since your dad likes to golf, does he like wine? This is a neat idea. And not incredibly sentimental, but it’s bottles of wine from legendary golfers: http://www.wine.com/V6/Golf-and-Wine-Legends/wine/88810/detail.aspx

What about stuff from Williams-Sonoma? Does he like to entertain his dates at home? My dad is SUPER tough to shop for, but he likes to fish, so I got him some fish seasoning from Williams-Sonoma and he really liked that.

If i think of anything else (i’ve already started brainstorming for my dad…it’s not easy!), I’ll let you know

Maybe give him the same bottle of wine/champagne that you’re giving the other parents? That way you aren’t leaving him out completely, he’s getting sorta the same thing making it “fair” but its not too expensive or sentimental and thus making you uncomfortable.

Maybe give it to him with a note about relaxing and enjoying the weekend or something generic like that (assuming you’re looking for generic….)

Not really sure what to get him as a gift… but you can aways say thanks for sharing such a special day with me and husband X… Although he hasn’t been there for you in the past etc. etc. if he does make it to the wedding- it would be nice to give him a lil “thank you”- I’m leaning towards the golfers bottle of wine… that seems tasteful (no pun intended) LOL

Hey EAQ, where ya been?

So do you want to get him something?  Or do you just feel kind of obligated?

If you don’t really care to get him anything, I wouldn’t worry too much about it.  It sounds like it’s easy to skirt around that since your other gifts are hotel rooms.  (IE. they’re not gifts that you’re presenting to the parents at the rehearsal dinner…all wrapped up.)  He might not even give it a thought, if he doesn’t know anyone else is getting a gift. 

The bottle of wine is a good, but easy suggestion too.  NO need to waste a lot of brain power on this one.  Of course you could give him a nice card, pic of your wedding, engagement photo, etc.
