We’re making photo books with our engagement photos for each set of parents.  Snapfish has them on a great deal at $10 for a 20 page linen covered book right now, so it’s also an economical choice for us!

We gave our parents mini albums from our wedding.  We also gave them a more personalized gift – my parents we got the Wii because they really liked it when we were at a party and played it most of the night.  His parents we took out to dinner at the Hobbit – its a great restaurant that has a wine cellar where you have hors d ‘oeuvres, then go back upstairs for a 6 course dinner.

We’re considering a few ideas–digital cameras, a large picture frame they could put our wedding picture in, embroidered handkerchiefs, massage certificates and/or dinner gift certificates.  We’re just not sure how much we want to spend yet.

Not to hijack the thread – but are you getting your parents a gift because they are hosting or helping to host the wedding?

Fiance and I are paying for the entire thing and it hasn’t even dawned on me to get them a present!!

We’re giving his parents and my stepmom cards and IOUs for wedding albums after we get our pro pics back – they are pitching in for Out of Town bags and the cake respectively.  My mom is paying for about a third of the wedding and we are giving her the same but also bought her a bracelet – I am giving it to her separately so no one feels bad.  We thought a little extra something in thanks was important since she’s been more involved financially and emotionally. 

@oracle – if you are paying for it yourselves, I don’t think a gift is necessary!

HI Bees!


Does anyone know where I can find personalized paper gift bags to put my bridesmaid gifts in?
