For the moms I got gold/silver necklaces and handkerchiefs with thoughtful messages, but what about the dads? I got my dad socks that say “of all of our walks together, this is my favorite” but that’s going to be from me. Fiance is looking for ideas because all the ones online seem to be so blah compared to the ideas for moms!

I bought my parents tickets for the opera, and gave my mum a necklace and earrings, and my dad an expensive bottle of wine.
So, tickets maybe? Or his favourite alcohol/cologne? A new gadget he might have been eyeing?

what does he like? it doesn’t have to be wedding related.
i got my mom sworavski, since she collects it. DH’s mom, i got a fun watch, she liked mine that i was wearing one day.
for Darling Husband, i got him tervis cups for his favorite baseball and football teams. he drinks coffee everyday.
both our dads have passed so i didn’t need to get them gifts. but i would get them something they can use.

I’ll be getting both set of parents tickets to either a show or outing (experience). The show one will come with an overnight stay in a hotel.
In addition, I’m giving my Dad an expensive bottle of whisky since he did a lot of work for the wedding.

FI was thinking pocket watch for my dad, but I feel like that’d never see use again! His dad is a wicked fisherman, but I think we’ve exhausted most fishing gifts over the years!
Both are homebodies but very funny, very family oriented. Maybe I should leave the task for Fiance (LOL) 😛

We struggled with this too. We ended up doing fancy knives and this really expensive flashlight type thing for those who wouldn’t be into that. I wasn’t crazy about either of these but I didn’t have any better ideas so…
