    Both my mother and my mother in law have collections of figurines so as a wedding gift I face each one a figurine

    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.
