Welcome again to FabSugar's Gift Guide! This one is all about Mom and Dad. Perhaps they are throwing you some Benjamins to help relieve some of the financial burden or, better yet, maybe they are footing the bill for your entire dream wedding extravaganza! Whatever the case, this is one of the most sentimental times of your life and you'll want to do something special for your folks and maybe even his too. Here are a few fab wedding gifts in different price ranges to show your parents and in-laws how much you appreciate all they've done for you.
This Kate Spade Library Stripe Silver plated Frame, $40, is a great way to show your parents how much you care. Add in a picture of your choice and frame it for them to display. A memorable picture idea is a professional engagement photo of you and your fiance or a picture of your whole family together. They will love it!
All parents really want to see is that you put some thought into it. This will be a huge hit! The frame is silver plated, has a classic looking shape with etched vertical stripes down the left side. Available in 3x3, 4x6 and 8x10 sizes.

If you have parents that are still married, how fabulous would it be of you to retouch or refurbish one of their original wedding photos! All you have to do is call or email Beth Schiffer for a cost estimate and turnaround time. She might also be able to direct you to someone else in your area if you don't want to mail the precious picture to NYC.
Ok, so this might seem a little extreme, but if your parents are anything like mine, all they want is some time with you. Getting married means that your family priorities have shifted a bit, so a great way to let them know that you will always have time for them is to plan and treat them to a trip, special dinner or event that you can all enjoy together.
I wrote about a great Dude Ranch vacation once. It was at the HF Bar Ranch, in Saddlestring, WY, and what a time we had! It was a fabulous bonding experience for my man and my folks - and my parents were beyond thrilled to spend five whole days horsing around with us!
