    Our gift to both sets of our parents will be a photo album from the wedding, which I’ll let them choose the pictures for.  My photographer does these, but for a pretty expensive price.  So I’m thinking I’ll just put the albums together on Shutterfly.  They both helped a lot with all of the details of the day, many of their family members were there, and they had a blast – so I know they will appreciate pictures to remember the day by.

    TaniaP:  If your parents are still together, then yes, sure, a joint gift would be fine.

    It’s totally fine to give a joint gift!!! We gave my parents a joint gift- a wine bottle engraved with a message from us in a nice wine box with their names and wedding date engraved on it. They loved it! We did give my dad a small present because our wedding was on his birthday- I gave him a nice frame with a picture of me from my bridals holding a sign that said “Forever your little girl”, but that was because it was his birthday. We didn’t get DH’s parents anything though, because they weren’t very involved in the planning.
