My Dad is sick with COPD and really does not get out of the house at this point. He is going to come to my wedding. I would normally think to get him an engraved knife but that is not useful for him now. I am also at a lose as to what I should get for my fiance’s parents. Do you have to get gifts? They are the primary contributors to the cost of the wedding. I thought about a personalized wine glass for my future mother in law and a neat humming bird feeder. I have no clue what to get my future father in law… he loves the outdoors but his health is also failing him so I am not sure what to get. HELP… Thanks!

We gave all our parents the promise of pro photos (their choice of prints or parent albums). If their health is not so great, perhaps pictures to look at when they are stuck at home or in care would be nice to look at.

We bought each parent something to use at the wedding like wristlets, nice ties and cuff links etc then ordered each set personalized wood frames on etsy that we will give them a photo for later

I bought our mom’s personalized hankies. I’m ordering a photobook for my dad of all the photos I can scan of my dad and I when I was a little kid. It’s surprisingly affordable, like $20 I think at Snapfish, but I’ve seen others post even cheaper photobooks.
I’m totally stumped on FI’s dad.

I like the idea of incorporating photos, but I know our parents wouldn’t want like, a photograph just handed to them in the frame… so a bee suggested on another thread to get a photo blanket, or photo playing cards, both of which I think our parents will love, so that’s what I’m thinking of doing.
