I’ve posted this before.. we got our parents each our favorite bottle of wine and two hand painted wine glasses.  Then I wrote something about how our favorite wine (root 1 – it’s awesome), how it was important for us to share it with them… stuff about them being the roots of our family, and about the tree of life & about how we are sharing something we love with them.  My dad loved the wine,  my mom cried.. they all loved the gift.

Hmm.. Well that complicates things further…

I thought about getting them a vase engraved with a message from us, or something personal that was related to our color scheme too.

Gift card for couple’s massages?  Restaurant gift certificate?  I think there was a WB blogger who gave the mothers triple diamond rings to signify the coming together of the three families, which I thought was super sweet.

How about hobby related things?  My father is an AVID golfer and will be hosting the per-wedding golf outting, so my fiance and I got him a golf shirt and zip-up by his preferred brand.  We will also be giving him a box of his favorite cigars to share with guests at the wedding since he has hinted that he would like to do so. I’ll be giving my mother perfume that she adores and can only fine in Europe (where we are honeymooning). In My Humble Opinion, If you think along the lines of what really special things you’re parents enjoy, they can be appreciated in the events and days surrounding the wedding, as well as after.
