I am struggling with this as well!  We have hankerchiefs for the moms, but would really like something else to go with it.  I have a few weeks, but need to figure it out soon!

I really really struggled with this for a while and wanted to do something nice and sentimental.  

For parents we are just getting each set of parents a gift card to their favorite restaurant to have dinner together after the craziness of the wedding is over.  My mom helped a lot (with DIY and emotionally) and I wanted to get her a little something special.  I found a handmade wooden music box on etsy where you could choose a bunch of different songs.  They had the song she used to sing me to sleep with when I was young.  So i’m getting her that and it has “Mom” carved in the top.  I know she’ll cry 😉

I was trying to think sentimental for my mom but the hankerchief may be enough sentimental for you?

Maybe a spa/mani/pedi gift card if they are in to that sort of thing?  

I even thought about giving my mom a “girls day” together.  Since I don’t live close by anymore I know she misses all the time we used to spend together so maybe a designated day for just you two (or three and include your Mother-In-Law if they get along!) that you plan and pay for and just enjoy being together?

This was one of the hardest gifts for me, so good luck!

Mizzbouvier14:  I bought my mum a pair of white gold and aquamarine oval stud earrings, and then a silver, aquamarine and silver-coloured drusy pendant (her outfit was pale silver/grey so they went really nicely with it and she wore them on the day), plus her favourite chocolates. We also bought my parents tickets to the opera; I’ll be going with them and will also be treating them to dinner and champagne. 

I think it’s nice to get something personal/individual to them, rather than more generic gifts, but that’s just me 🙂
