Giving gifts to your parents at your wedding party simply shows your appreciation and gratitude for their financial and emotional support to help make your wedding a success. Giving parents gifts can be done before your wedding day, like at your rehearsal dinner or wedding shower. Grab the opportunity to personally thank your parents as well as parents of your partner for all the love and effort to be the best parents to both of you. If you are a bit confused on what to select for moms and dads, here are some wedding gift ideas to help you:
To help your parents get used to the new dynamic in the family, the more your gifts are sentimental the better. Consider a framed family tree, including the new member of the family. You can add something like your family background or your family history. Be creative when making such gift by adding decorative accessories to the portrait and to the frame itself.
Photo albums also make great sentimental gifts for the parents. Purchase nice-looking albums at your mall. You can make a multiple copy of photographs that you have saved before or copies of your wedding photo shoot. Place the photos in the albums so that your parents will not need to do that themselves to have a memorabilia of your wedding day.
Jewelry is also known to make a great keepsake that can last for a lifetime. You may want to give your parents some nice jewelry gifts that they can wear on your wedding day. There are some wonderful options for jewelry gifts, like making them personalized by putting a childhood or engagement picture in a locket or engraving their names or initials on bracelets or pendants.
You may want to give something useful to your parents, like items that can give benefit to their everyday living. Any useful gift is highly appreciate. A tea set, multi-purpose tool bag, apron kit, tea box, bathrobe, or anything that can be useful to them makes a perfect gift for moms and dads.
Other presents you can give to your parents can actually be found during the ceremony itself. These gifts don’t need to be expensive. One great idea is buying extra flowers from the florist and you can just ask an attendant to do the giving for you. Or, you may also have the flowers presented by someone while parents are walking down the aisle.
Wedding gifts for parents don’t have to be lavish nor extravagant. Stick to gifts that convey the message that you want to tell to your moms and dads and as much as possible, personalized them. Search online for some more ideas. Other presents that weddings often need are gifts for groomsmen and best man, gifts for bridesmaids and maid of honor, and gifts for ring bearer and flower girl These are all thank you gifts that you can give to those who have a major involvement in your wedding.
