5 Wedding Thank You Gift Ideas for Your Parents

5 Wedding Thank You Gift Ideas for Your Parents

They were there for you for scraped knees and broken hearts, at graduations and driving lessons, from your first step and – now – to your walk down the aisle.

Your parents have been with you through good times and bad – why not thank them for everything with a personal gift on your wedding day? Check out our ideas:


Your wedding day is filled with special moments. Make sure the ones with mom and dad and captured – then printed! – in a gorgeous album. Having a mix of the posed pictures alongside the candid dancing moments will tell the beautiful story that your wedding day was – and will be something your parents look fondly back on.

A Pamper Day

Wedding planning can often be stressful for your parents, so why not gift them a day of pampering when it’s all said and done? Whether it’s a day at the spa, a date night at the movies, or 100 chocolate-covered strawberries (no judgment), give your parents the opportunity to treat themselves!

Photo Book

With a photo book, you can relive the pivotal moments of your relationship with your parents. Fill it with photos from that time they taught you how to ride a bike, your posed photo before the father-daughter dance, and more. For an added awww-moment, leave one of the pages blank and write a note about how much they mean to you.

A Day-Of Accessory

Take away the stress of accessorizing from mom and dad! Custom jewelry that matches your mom’s ensemble will be much appreciated. For dad, go for accents to wear with his suit, such as an embroidered handkerchief or personalized cufflinks.

Family Portrait Decor

You most likely had a conversation with your photographer about your “must-have” shots on the day of your wedding. If you didn’t request a picture of you and your parents (any variations that make sense for you), do it now! It’s the perfect shot to be displayed as wall decor either in a classic Framed Print or a museum-quality Canvas Print.
