Your parents play a huge role in your wedding day. Not only did they help you become the wonderful person you are today, but they've most likely stood by you and helped with all the stress and planning. A nice way to show how much you appreciate their time and help is with a gift.
Here are some things to keep in mind when purchasing a thank-you gift for your parents:
*Set a Budget - When setting your wedding budget make sure to include this in your original amount. It is best to spend the same amount on both sets of parents and try to get something similar. Some choose to do a gift for the both of them or separate for mom and dad.
*Thank You Gifts for Two - This can be very meaningful and also give your parents some extra time to spend together. Some great ideas are:
*Travel - Hotel reservations for a romantic retreat for the weekend
*Evening Out - Tickets to the show, a gift card for their favorite restaurant, or a complete evening out on the town
*Gift Basket - Wine, gourmet food, or personalized items for the both of them
*Something Personal - Something that holds meaning. Frame your favorite wedding photo for them, make a video or family photo or calendar
*One for Dad, one for Mom - You may choose to get your parents separate gifts and there are many great ways to do that
For Dad - Personalized cuff links, gift certificate to his favorite store, golf accessories, wine, monogrammed, money clips, personalized pens or key chains
For Mom - Spa certificate, earrings or necklace for the wedding, soaps, candles, fragrances, personalized photo album, frame or jewelry box, charm bracelet or necklace with family theme
