My aunt and uncle are hosting our wedding at their vacation house in Lake Tahoe. They are very wealthy, and have just about anything anyone could ever want or need. I’m trying to figure out what we can get them as a “thank you” gift. Something like a wine/gift basket wouldn’t really mean much to them. They are very sentimental, though, so something homemade or that requires a lot of effort would mean something. The best idea I have so far is a scrapbook of family and the wedding events. I think they’d love it, but that would be super time consuming, and I’m not sure if I have time to finish it before the wedding. I/we also wouldn’t be able to add pictures until afterwards.

I love that idea but if it is too time consuming right now I would suggest a restaurant gift card with an offer for all 4 of you to go out together one night. I’m sure they could easily afford to take you all out on their dime but I think it is more about the gesture than the actual gift.

What about a donation in their honor? I can’t figure out what to get our officiant (who is a family friend, too, and I know doesn’t need anything) so I’ve decided to make a donation to a mountain club that I know she would appreciate (she hikes those mountains frequently).
As far as the album idea, we are making albums for our parents and because we obviously can’t have them done before the wedding, we are giving them chocolates (from our region) and a nice thank you note – letting them know they’ll be receiving a pretty album later.

I LOVE the scrapbook/ album idea! Absolutely they will love this! If you don’t have the time to finish, that’s okay, you can leave pages blank and tell them you can’t WAIT to fill it with all of the great times you are having/ are about to have. That would mean a lot to them.
