Gift Guide | For Parents of the Couple



It's pretty common on a wedding day for couples to give their parents a small token of appreciation for not only their help with all the wedding festivities, but also helping raising and shaping you into who you are today.


I thought I would share a few of our favorite ideas, including what we gifted our parents, for the wedding day.


First we included our parents with our wedding party and gifted our moms the pajamas we got ready in as well as a welcome bag.

A go-to for me is always jewelry because it's something they can wear again beyond their wedding day. I got my Mom a necklace from Becoming Jewelry, a local favorite, that said "I'm going to stand by you" which is what our Mother-Daughter dance was to.


For my in-laws I gifted my Mother-in-Law a custom bracelet in my handwriting that said, "Thank you for raising the man of my dreams" from Etsy. We also printed photos from their wedding and both of their parents weddings and put them in a frame for them.



Another go-to for us is always anything from Artifact Uprising.


Maybe you opt for a simple handwritten thank you card on the wedding day and follow up with an album or photo gift once you receive your images from your photographer.


Another favorite is a Motion Book. This looks like a photo album but plays your wedding film. Such a beautiful way to display and rewatch your film.



Other ideas for gifts for your parents:

  • Their favorite bottle of wine or liquor.

  • A piece from their wedding day repurposed.

  • Embroidered Handkerchief.

  • A dinner at their favorite place prior to the wedding or following.
