Audience participation time

Ok, here's the question of the day. What do I get my parents as a thank-you gift? Nothing cheesy because they have everything. They don't need one more engraved picture frame, no clocks, no cufflinks or jewelry. I'm stumped and I need some help because the days are running out and I need to find something fast.

Aaron and I have decided what gift to get each other. My gift was a beautiful diamond heart necklace. I'm just waiting to get a stronger chain because I'm afraid I'll break this one. It's a floating necklace and I know that my hair will get caught up in it and break. I'm not taking that chance, especially since my Christmas gift last year was diamond earrings and I wore them everyday and one night we went to meet with the photographer and I realized I only had one on. Yep, I lost it. Now you see why I don't wear jewelry that much, especially if it's worth anything.

Aaron has decided that his gift will be, wait for it, it's so meaningful it brings tears to my eyes......a fishfinder. Yes, the gift he chose to remember our special day is a freakin fishfinder. How sentimental. He is the worst person to buy for, especailly at Christmas because he doesn't wear jewelry, and he doesn't care for sweets, or snacks to fill his stocking. Novelty gifts are lost on him. Yep, I'm marrying someone who has expensive taste. The only things he wants are snowmobiles, boat stuff, a big truck, riding lawn mowers, need I go on? What am I getting myself in to?

Ok, tonight is my last highlight before the wedding. My poor hairstylist, she's going to hate me because this time I'm going to be so picky...

Happy Hump Day!

    Sorry I can't help you out with the parent thing, the only things I can think of are what you already listed as things they don't need. But Aaron's gift cracked me up - sounds like something Scott would want. Only he already bought that for himself! Scott's really difficult to buy for because he has really expensive taste and buys everything before I'd even have a chance to get it anyway. Good luck with the parents :)

    How about a really nice picture of you and Aaron in a nice, engraved frame?

    As a parent, you know what I would want from my kid? A really nice picture of him and his significantly better half, in a nice (not engraved, but that's my taste) frame, and a deeply sincere thank you note. Not just "thanks for helping with the wedding," but a recognition of the support we've given him over the years. Of the direction and hopefully wisdom we've imparted. But sincere is the key...

    But yeah, I'd really want the picture. And not necessarily a posed one, but maybe a spontaneous snapshot of them together laughing their freaking heads off...a reminder of how happy they are.

    I like the picture idea too. Especially a nice candid shot.

    I got my parents really nice monogrammed hankerchiefs for my wedding. I knew they would be crying their eyes out on my wedding day, so I figured they could have them with them. I may have writeen a sappy card using tears as a metaphore, but I don't exactly recall.

    Do you have time to make them a memory book?

    What about a photo album? A smaller one, full of candid photos of you and your lovely boy. It's something to look back on, something real, to hold, and doesn't cost too much.

    Used to make my mom cry every time.

    I got my parents a small photo album with photos from the engagement party, the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. They're divorced, so I got to pick photos that really fit them -- my dance with my dad, my mom helping me into my dress, etc.
