We got our in laws a glass plaque, a thick one that stands on theirshelf with our wedding date, names, and a personal thank you engraved to them. And then a big bouquet of flowers for Mother-In-Law. All presented after the midnight buffet, a short little speech thanking both my parents and in laws.  Both sets of parents for the same glass plaque and mom’s got bouquets.

Something like this, but with parents’ names, our wedding date, and a personal thank you message. They loved it. And it doesn’t have to be hung around the house, she can put it on a shelf or in a box, it’s the thought that counts and she’ll have a nice memory.

I believe the presents are given from both of you, as a thank-you for support and help with the wedding (and everything else over the years). At least that’s how we did it.

Ibelieve it’s traditional to present them at the rehearsal dinner (I have even seen it during the reception in the thank-you speaches) but we didn’t want to do it so “publicly”. We spent a couple of days with our own families before the wedding, so each have our own parents their gifts. 

I think your birthstone ring idea is lovely!

emdinan :  I like your birthstone ring idea if she’s into that sort of thing! My parents are really tough to buy for and they don’t really need or want any “stuff” so we took them out for a really nice dinner at a restaurant they had been wanting to try.

I think a mother’s ring is such a special and thoughtful gift. I would definitely go with that idea. It would be a very meaningful gesture. You might simply tell her she raised a very strong, special man, and that you’re glad to be part of her family.
