@Bri1o:  Our parents are not contributing to the wedding, so we’re just doing token “thanks for your emotional support, we love you” kind of gifts. We each only have one living parent. For my dad I plan to do a double frame that’s been engraved. One with a picture of us when I was young and the other will be open for a picture of us at the wedding. For his mom we will probably do a locket or something.

I am getting my FFIL an engraved guitar pick (hes really into guitars) and engraving it with “Thank you for raising the man of my dreams”

FMIL- I am thinking of giving her an engraved hankierchief, it made her cry when I asked her to go dress shopping with me, so I am expecting her to cry at our wedding lol

My Dad- I am thnking of getting an engraved hammer for him, hes really into woodworking and I think he would love it.

My Mom- I am still looking for ideas on this one.

For my mom and dad together, we are giving them a $100 dollar gift card to The Keg(there favourite restaurant) and separately other than paying for my mom’s hair and make-up, the day before I’m going to set up a manicure appointment for her, my grandma, two aunts and my sister. For my dad, I’ll be giving him a double frame, one picture of us when I was a child, amd the second photo will be of our first dance. 

For my future in-laws, we are also giving them a $100 gift card to a restaurant(unsure of which one).

We bought a large frame that can fit three 5×7 photos. The top photo is a photo of me with my parents. The bottom is one with me and my husband. The middle is a hand-written thank-you note. They loved it.
