50 Best Wedding Gifts for Parents

They supported you in all of your endeavors (at least those that didn’t conflict with becoming a respectable member of society). They were there for you during the best times, and also during the not so good times. They were the most excited to hear the good news when you told them that you landed a mate. Most importantly, they’ve lent a helping hand and probably a considerable chunk of change to help plan and pay for your wedding day, so a thank you is certainly in order.

You don’t have to spend a fortune to come up with a genuine and sentimental wedding gift for your parents. If you’re not sure where to start, here are a ton of great wedding gifts for parents.

Why Should You Get Your Parents a "Thank You" Gift?

If your parents have helped pay for the wedding or supported in other ways throughout the process, it's typical to get them a gift to say thank you. Wedding planning is expensive and the budget for this gift can vary widely, but typically you can expect to spend between $50 and a couple hundred dollars, depending on your budget.

When Should You Give Them Their Gift?

There are a few traditional times to give your parents a wedding gift. The rehearsal dinner is likely the most common time, as you might be giving your bridal party their gifts at this time as well. If you're looking for a more private time to give your parents their gift, the morning before the wedding while everyone is getting ready is also common. 

Who Should You Get a Gift for on Your Wedding Day?

In addition to your bridal party, it's typical to give a gift to the parents of the bride as well as the parents of the groom as a thank you. We recommend keeping spending fairly even between the two to keep hurt feelings at bay. If you have step-parents or grandparents who were also involved in your wedding, you might want to get them a token gift as well.
