It is customary to gift your parents and wedding party members a thank you gift during the rehearsal dinner. Sometimes it can be difficult to settle on a gift idea for parents. We’ve compiled a list of sweet gifts from DIY to weekend getaway that your parents will love and appreciate the sentiment.

1. A gift for Both Parents – Peachwik

We’ve found that parents love nothing more than to receive pictures of their children. A perfect and sentimental gift to give to your parents as a thank you is a personalized frame featuring on of  their favorite engagement photos.

2. A gift for the Mothers – Berkey Designs

There are so many beautiful gift ideas for the mothers on the wedding day. One of our favorites are the custom engraved bracelets highlighting a few sweet words, your names, and the wedding date.

3. A gift for the Fathers – Shannah J. Smith

A sweet gift for the fathers is a tie with a custom tag inside to say thank you to your father for all that they have done for you. Every time they put the tie on they will be reminded of your wedding day.

4. List your Love – Curtains Are Open

Want to see if you can make your daddy tear-up? This sweet idea should definitely do it. List the things you love about your mom and dad. Plus, this is a great DIY!

5. A Wine Tasting – Arrington Vineyard

If you’re parents aren’t the type to want a weekend getaway then perhaps a perfect way for them to relax and enjoy themselves is a day at the vineyard. Best yet, sign them up for Arrington’s Wine Club and purchase some 2 bottle of wine for them quarterly.

6. A Weekend Getaway – Butterfly Gap Retreat

After all of the wedding planning, lets face it, your parents could use a weekend away as much as you. So why not give them a mini-moon while you are on your honeymoon. This is the perfect space for a little rest and relaxation and is close enough to Gatlinburg they can go there for a day trip.
