Why would they do that to you? LOL

So excited for you, now you get a wedding and a “house” when the time is right! Wow.

How nice! And that’s really generous of you to send them on a cruise. My parents wouldn’t wear t shirts, but if yours would, those are cute ideas.

ETA – I like “recovering” better. It would be a good conversation starter, whereas people might feel uncomfortable asking why their daughter paid for their cruise.

How awesome!!

The cruise s a wonderful idea.  Maybe book them a couple of excursions as well? Or a spa day?

Aw how wonderfully sweet of them!  So touching, it brings a tear to my eyes and I don’t even know you!  I love when people do things for other people like that.  I think it’s also great that you already booked them a cruise.

Instead of a t-shirt, perhaps you can book them massages or an excursion?  It might be a bit more money. 

I wouldn’t do “on our daughter’s tab” though – that’s kinda.. showy?  I don’t know if that’s the word, but seems like you’re gloating that you paid for it.  I’m sure that’s not your intention, but that’s just how it comes off to me.

I would get some cruise related gifts- travel toliletries, a photo album for when they get back, brochures for the different places the cruise stops etc.  I would wrap each item separetly, and put the confirmation papers in a shirt box and wrap that as well.  I would have them open the confirmation papers last.

Congratulations! What a relief! My parents just told me last week that they are giving Fiance and I 10k – our budget is 15k, so that’s a HUGE help. I was SHOCKED and couldn’t stop crying, so I know exactly how you feel. It feels a little bit like what winning the lottery would feel like, I think.
