We got our parents an 8 x 8 photo album of wedding photos after the wedding as a Thank You. I used some Groupons and coupon codes for Shutterfly to make them. I gave them a card on the wedding day that said something like “A wedding photo album is coming your way after the big day”.

On the day of the wedding I gave both my parents embroidered handkerchiefs as a keepsake and a heartfelt thank you card. I got them on ETSY. My DH decided not to give anything besides the photo albums to his parents.

We will probably get them a photo album and I plan on getting my dad an embroidered handkerchief before we walk down the aisle. Probably a photo album or framed photo collage for FI’s parents.

We did albums and prints for them post wedding.  I also got my mom a charm for her Pandora bracelet.

We got my parents a gift certificate for dinner and wine at their favourite high-end restaurant. They really appreciated the opportunity to treat themselves!

We bought a rose bush for each of our parents and displayed them either side of the marquee door at the reception. It was tricky to do this in secret but my mum’s friends watered them for us for 2 weeks and drove them there! (We don’t live in our hometown anymore which is where we had the reception, so we had to ask people to help us!). We thought it was a nice alternative to a bouquet because our parents can plant them in their gardens. 

We also bought them a wedding album each.
