Many engaged couples want to show appreciation to their parents for financing their big day, but struggle to come up with ideas for such a meaningful gift. Fortunately, there are many unique wedding gift options for parents of the bride and groom.
One idea is to produce a personalized wedding gift for parents. Personalized items provide a special keepsake of love and family history. Frames engraved with a sincere message and memorable photo will be appreciated for years to come. Personal jewelry like a locket or cufflinks with the wedding date engraved on them are another option. Plaques with a special poem can be proudly displayed as a reminder of the merger of two families. The Christmas decorations can be engraved with the names of the couples. Another option is a framed representation of the family tree (with the new child included).
Another idea is to give a classic object made with precious materials. The bride and groom may want to make the timeless gift of crystal, in the form of a clock or vase. Silver candlesticks or a serving piece offer another option.
Couples may want to exercise their special talents by creating their own unique wedding gift for their parents. A handmade scrapbook chronicling the journey from childhood to marriage will make parents cry. A handmade quilt would instantly become a family heirloom. Ceramics, lovingly created or painted, will take pride of place on the mantel in the family home.
Another option is to gift relaxation. After months of stressful (and expensive) wedding planning, most parents of newlyweds would appreciate a gift certificate for a relaxing spa treatment or weekend getaway. Couples can be creative and research local recreation options, bed and breakfast, and formal dining.
Once married, the bride and groom can provide the parents with a special photo album with candid photos of the wedding, ceremony and honeymoon preparations.
Regardless of the wedding gift a couple decides to give their parents, the heartfelt message of appreciation will be communicated clearly and lovingly.
