- Wedding: April 2010
My parents divorced back in 2004, dad remarried in 2005, and mom in 2006. I am very close to my step-mother. She never had any children and has always looked at my brothers and me as her own children. We are not very close with our step-father. He’s a nice man, but he has two grown sons and is pretty much set with them as his family. My step-mom has helped pay for our wedding and has even co-hosted a bridal shower with my mom and is independently throwing me a lingerie shower on the morning of the wedding. My step-dad has not helped with anything (again, his children are his family). While I’ve gotten my actual parents very nice gifts, I would like to get my step-mother something. I don’t want this to sound wrong, but I did not want to get her the same gift or even something as nice as what I got my mother because I am the only daughter and I know my mother has been waiting for this day since I was born. But if I get my step-mom something, I worry that my mom will wonder why I didn’t get something for my step-dad.
Anyone with a similar dilemma? Any advice?
