5 Ways to Thank Mom and Dad

It’s tradition to give thank you gifts to the bridesmaids and groomsmen, but we think it’s also a nice touch to do something nice for your parents. Here are some ideas from our sister store, Busy Bride Wedding Guide.

Embroidered Tote Bags

We love these black embroidered tote bags for everyone in your bridal party – the mothers included. They’re handy for carrying wedding essentials, and they identify the carrier as someone special to the bride. Available for the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom.


Embroidered Cosmetic Bags

Made of a pretty white waffle weave fabric, these handy cosmetic bags have a plastic liner inside. Outside, the words “Mother of the Bride” or “Mother of the Groom” are embroidered in aqua blue script. A little sparkly embellishment finishes off this practical – but fun – gift.


Personalized Glass Mug

Knock one back with Dad in a mug personalized with his important station and his name. Dad will appreciate a special mug for enjoying his favorite drink. Available for the entire bridal party plus father of the bride and father of the groom.


Dad Handkerchief

If Dad’s likely to shed a few tears on your wedding day, give him this handkerchief to dry his eyes. Embroidered with “DAD” in blue thread, the hanky comes ready to give in a gift box with a sentimental verse.


Heart Photo Album

Most parents love nothing more than pictures of their children. Whether you fill it with pictures – new or old – or give it blank waiting for favorite pictures, a cute heart photo album is sure to be appreciated by both sets of parents. For an extra-special gift, fill the album with wedding photos and present it to them after the wedding.
