i was wondering what you all are giving your parents as gifts (to give at rehearsal dinner). i am having difficulty thinking of anything and it seems like the only thing i’ve seen suggested on websites are a nice picture frame with a wedding photo in it given after the wedding. they are already getting an album – what else is out there?

What about booking them a nice weekend in a B&B or something like that? I know my parents would love that.

My parents are actually adamant that they do not want gifts from us. I still want to do SOMETHING for them but I haven’t figured it out yet either. I figure if it’s something simpler they won’t be so against it… I think they just don’t want us to spend a ton of money on them because they know we’re spending a lot on the wedding as it is.

we got my dad a gift certificate to a fancy restaurant on the beach, his dad a gift certificate for golf, and our mom’s really nice necklaces from an israeli artist.

We’re writing them a nice card, giving them a bag of chocolates from our region and letting them know they’ll be getting a pretty album after the wedding. We’re super low budget and the album won’t be cheap – so, we think that’s plenty. More than anything, a heartfelt thank you goes a long way.

We got them a digital photo frame, which we’ll fill with professional wedding photos later on. I’m going to keep the memory card until we get the pro photos, and we’ll give them the frame at the rehearsal dinner.

While helping with my china pattern, my mother fell in love with one – a Ginori china with a scene of Tuscany painted in the middle. My parents go there every year so I am getting them a platter to use or hang on the wall.
i have NO IDEA what to get FI’s parents. They are the hardest people in the world to buy for.

I’m handwriting a list of 100 things I learned from my mom and 100 things I learned from my dad and putting it in a frame with a picture of me and mom and me and dad and giving it to them. I’m sentimental and I think of it as letting them know how much they taught me over the years and I will take that into my new life as a married woman.
