I am very curious to see what responses you get, as FI’s uncle is marrying us and we’re wondering the same!

Yeah, my cousin is marrying us and I didn’t even think about it! Well I should probably get him SOMETHING, but I have no idea what.

His wife is an interior decorator and doesn’t like clutter. He is too old for the glass boots we are getting the groomsmen. He is my cousin, so the photobooks I plan on getting the parents would be odd.

:-/  This is hard!

Hmm, well my cousin is marrying us and my other cousin is doing the cake. Would taking their kids out to Chuck E. Cheese for the night and giving them a gift certificate for them and their spouses to go have a nice dinner somewhere be weird?

I say a nice thank you gift. Maybe something engraved.

does he have any hobbies? Does he play chess or like to read? Or maybe a gift certificate for a hotel or restaurant would be nice.

Maybe ask the Fiance if their is anything he would like? Or call up the Future In-Laws and ask about his hobbies.

My FI’s uncle is marrying us.  He asked that we not give him any cash.  We are anyway.  We’re giving him $100 and a nice gift card to eat out.  Also we’re planning on giving him a nice bound photo book afterwards.

My Fiance uncle is marrying us and giving a dinner gift card and making a donation in his name to a charity that he likes because he asked us not to give him anything
