I am currently trawling through etsy looking for gifts to give my Fiance and future in-laws on the day of/day before the wedding. I really want to give them something small but special as a keepsake and thank you. I already have gifts for my parents sorted (custom photo cufflinks for dad and a photo memory box for mum) but they were easier as I had a lot of photos of us to choose from… I was thinking maybe an engraved watch for Fiance with our wedding date.
What other ideas are out there? I keep stumbling on personalised handkerchiefs but I don’t feel like a hanky on its own is enough… I’m curious to know what others gave, if anything.

- Wedding: September 2017 - Pearson Convention Centre
Both my mother and my mother in law have collections of figurines so as a wedding gift I face each one a figurine

mrandmrsnunes : that’s a nice idea, something more useful/wanted rather than strictly wedding related…
My future Mother-In-Law loves a certain brand of tea cups… Maybe I could get her a set of those.

I like the idea of a gift more curated to the person’s interests. Even if it’s not wedding themed the idea of it as a wedding gifts leaves plenty of sentimentality imo.
I do really like the idea of a watch with the date though. Sounds sweet.

I think you should get them a gift that they actually want versus something just wedding related. They will appreciate something more thoughtful and specific to them, instead of just a generic gift.
I’d definitely go for the tea cups for your Future Mother-In-Law, it sounds like she would love that.
As for your Future Father-In-Law, think about his interests. If he loves nice watches, get him one of those. If he could care less about watches, I’d skip that. If he loves golf, get him something golf related that would be useful for him. If he loves to cook, get him something cooking-related. If he loves to grill, get him a nice grill tool. If he loves whiskey, get him a really nice bottle of whiskey. You can even get him something like tickets to a sporting event if that’s something he loves, it doesn’t necessarily have to be an object.
