We’re making both of our parents a photobook from e-pics and possibly other pics from throughout the years.

@Honey Bubble: I was thinking of buying my mom a round trip ticket to go see her family for her spring break (She’s a Teacher)

We’re doing family albums through our photographer. At the rehearsal, we have them all super generous gift certificates (spas for the women, fav restaurant for Fil, and a hobby store for my dad that he’s obsessed w).

My Mom is the only parent really contributing financially, but we’re doing something for all of the parents. I do think my mom will be getting something a bit *better* but since it will be more in the form of activities, there’s no reason for other parents to know. See below for what that means, I know it sounds weird. Haha.

We’ll make photo books after the wedding for every parental unit (since it’s parents + step parent times 4). They’ll be personalized and mostly have pics that include the parents, siblings, etc.

For my Mom, I’m planning on cleaning her house from top to bottom one day while she’s at work. She is a neat-freak, but has 4 kids (3 of which are still at home) and I know she’d love it. We don’t have a huge amount of income to BUY anything amazing for her – but we want to DO things for her. Fiance will detail her car for free (he loves it anyway) and we’re just going to show our appreciation.

Why that got to be so long-winded I have no idea! haha. Sorry.

I think a thoughful card, a photo book, and a nice dinner out (maybe to present them the photo book?) would be nice.

Fiance and i are buying my parents a new tv. they’ve had the same one since they got married (25 years ago) and they really want one but are the kind of “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” people and wouldn’t spend the money on one for themselves even though they bought my brother and i both tvs when we turned 18. 

so it’s their turn to be spoiled!
