Hi, does anyone have a brill idea for a thank you gift for the parents? The room will be full of flowers, so it seems silly to get anyone any more. I guess we have about £100 budget & I really wanted to get something that would reflect how brilliant they've been & how much we appreciate it.
I went through the attic when they were on holiday and got lots of photos, drawings I did as a child and drawings my dc had done, and got one of those photo books done. I included 'family sayings' and quotes from stories my Dad used to read when I was little. My Dad actually cried when he looked through it and Mum keeps it in pride of place on the coffee table.
We got a night in a nice hotel, to force them to take time out and relax. We booked for a week or so after the wedding, once things had calmed down a bit. Went down very well. My sister got them a lovely album of photos from the wedding. I think our idea was better.
