What is the occasion you are gifting for?

I didn’t give them anything, and he didn’t give mine anything. We just got gifts for our own parents. To be fair, his mother didn’t come anyway. We did a ‘rose ceremony’ at our wedding to honor the moms, and his dad accepted her rose for her…

I think in-law gifts are nice, but totally unnecessary.


Er…just realized this may not be for a wedding lol! In that case, that is a tough one. Your man that was raised by them can’t help at least give you some ideas on things they enjoy?

As PP mentioned if you mean for the wedding there’s no expectation that you do it at all. If you mean Christmas etc, fiancé usually picks a gift for his family and its from “us”. I do the same for mine.

What about a nice personalized picture frame that they can put your wedding picture in? That’s what we did for my grandmother..We got an engraved picture frame at Things Remembered (but she loves that kind of stuff so maybe it’s not for everyone)..

Or a frame that has a quote about family and then they can put a picture of you and your Fiance and them in it?

crystl :  Etsy has cute embroidered handkerchiefs with the sentiment of, “Thank you for raising the man of my dreams” or something like that.  Would they appreciate a small gesture like that?

We got our parents a “date night”. This may be different for your parents and inlaws if they like to splurge of themselves, but our parents don’t do that that often. Maybe buy them tickets to a show coming to your area and a gift certificate to nice restaurant? Sometimes experiences are more appreciated than tangible gifts that they don’t really want or need. Everyone enjoys a good night out!
