gatsbymermaid:  The gifts are generally given to express your thanks not only for their support for the wedding (and that doesn’t have to mean financially) and for raising you to be the people you are.

We gave personalized gifts at my first wedding. My parents are both dead so it wasn’t an issue for my second wedding.

gatsbymermaid:  I’m giving my parents each a small gift, and Fiance is giving his mother something seperately. Both gifts are more sentimental than anything else. They don’t have to be the same, but I think it’s fine if they are. Are you planning to give them the gifts at the same time?

We are jointly giving both sets of parents the same gift. I also bought the parents separate gifts just from me. My gifts to parents are personalized for each parent but valued approximately the same. (The one for my mom might be a tad more expensive, but I was buying based on what I thought they’d like, not on price.)

we are giving separate gifts, I dont feel like I know his parents well enough to give an appropriate gift. I gave my father engraved beer glasses, I know they will be significant for him
