My parents and my soon to be inlaws are helping us so much with the wedding both monetarily and otherwise. Could some of you please give me some ideas for thank you gifts? We are already working on very nice thank you letters. Thanks so much!

We bought my parents a 2-night package at a cute hotel on Catalina Island. Maybe there is a nice bed and breakfast relatively close by, but still a bit of a getaway? We also included a gift certificate to a steakhouse near the hotel. For my in-laws, we bought them a gift certificate at one of their favorite restaurants.

We gave both sets of parents IOUs for a canvas print of any wedding picture of their choice.

We are getting them wedding albums i will decide and for my parents we will also get them a B&B stay in Newport RI since they paid for much more and did much more.

Fiance is getting his mom a gift card to her favorite tennis store and I’m gettin my grandmother (basically my mom) some nice bath salts and a pair of pajamas for a trip she’s taking next month – we wanted to do something practical for them.
My dad and step mom are getting the same personalized picture frame as my mom and step dad.
We’ll probably wait and gift wedding albums as a Christmas present.

We’re thinking of ordering something like these:
I keep mentioning this seller but I think the signs are so neat 🙂 We’re going to get different styles of ones for each set of parents

We gave them a vacation (had a lot of Amex points after wedding expenditures!!)
Not sure what your budget it. We considered was something from Simon Pearce — they have very nice engraved glass bowls, like the celebration bowl:
Or this company engraves their handblown champagne glasses for free:

@lukesgirl1823: No problem! I ordered one for a wedding gift for a friend of mine and was blown away when I received it in the mail – very good quality, beautiful, and unique, which is why I keep recommending the seller! So we decided we’ll get them for our thank you gifts for parents. Which style did you go with?

@GeekChic:Totally just ordered one of those as a wedding gift for friends. They LOVED it!
