Enchanting Wedding Presents for Parents of the Bride and Groom

Don’t forget the parents! Granted, buying wedding gifts for the parents (both sets!), isn’t a must, but bearing in mind they used to pay for the day itself, surely they’re worthy of a few bits and pieces to thank them for all their help and support?

It’s most likely the mother of the bride has helped her beloved daughter choose the perfect dress, sorted out the wedding meal menu, not to mention helped with the all-important guest list. When it comes to the big day, she can kick back a bit as the spotlight shines on her daughter and gawp at how beautiful she looks. To forget wedding gifts for parents – namely the mother of the bride – would be a fateful faux pas considering all they’ve done.

As for the father of the bride, he gets to ‘give his daughter away’ to the man who’s about to become her hubby. Pride, definitely. Relief… erm… maybe. Usually, he also makes a speech, a tear of pride in his eyes as he thanks the guests for coming, reveals embarrassing stories about his daughter and wishes the happy couple a lifetime of happiness.

As for the groom’s ma and pa, they don’t tend to be in the limelight half as much, that said, they’re important nonetheless. They’re still placed with the bride, groom and her parents on the ‘top table’. Oh, and, the groom wouldn’t even be there without them, so weddings gifts for parents of the groom are fairly imperative.

So, if you shudder at the very prospect of choosing wedding presents for parents, fear not – there’s hope. We present… personalised parents wedding gifts. These amazingly awesome presents can be engraved with a special wedding message to say thank you and, as such, will be irreplaceable gifts and act as a permanent keepsake of the special day.

It can’t be denied that mothers of the bride and groom are special members of the entourage. They’ll most likely appreciate gifts they can wear or bring to the wedding, like a piece of jewellery or a special personalised gift such as a compact mirror or personalised atomiser. You could also give an engraved jewellery box or personalised photo frame.

For the father of the groom and bride, there are oodles of unique parent wedding gifts available, from engraved silver cufflinks and money clips to flasks and sports-themed gifts such as rugby books and football programme covers.

Other popular wedding gift ideas for parents are personalised glasses. Nowadays, you can get cheerful, charming glasses with a full colour cartoon motif depicting a character from the wedding party, including mother of the bride, mother of the groom, father of the bride and father of the groom. Simply choose the character you want featured on your glass, then personalise it with any name. Another lovely wedding gift for parents would be a bottle of champagne together with an original newspaper from a date of your choice.
