Gift Ideas

Looking for gift ideas for our moms. My fiancé picked out great gifts for our dads and I feel pressure to find something for our moms but haven’t really found anything I liked or think they’d actually use.
Preferably not something online since our wedding is next month and I don’t want to risk it not being here in time or jewelry as they’re both sensitive to certain things and have allergies.
What did you/ are you giving for mother of the bride and groom gifts? I don’t want to be rude and not give them anything since the men got gifts but I don’t want something that’ll go to waste.

    You're welcome! You could also get it monogrammed with their initials or something to personalize it.

    Yes I love those ones, from bath and body works right? One loves candles and one loves perfume so that’s a great place to look too thanks!
    I thought about those handkerchiefs! I had them saved on my Etsy but couldn’t commit to them for some reason lol I must be overthinking it!

    I got my mother in law two really nice aromatherapy lotions. One is called 'comfort' and the other one is 'stress relief'. I made a joke to her how she needs pampering after dealing with us! It seemed to go over well.


    I got my mom a personalized handkerchief as she's a cry baby

    That’s actually a great idea! Something I could see them using, thanks!

    You could get them some beautiful pashminas or shawls in their favourite colour.

    It's also handy if you have a friend who's into craft work

    When his uncle got married he gave the guys personalized belt buckles and his dad still wears it everyday so my fiancé got all of them personalized belt buckles. My stepdad isn’t country lol but he was still very touched to be included. He gave the dads theirs for Father’s Day and all the GM have theirs already so they could get belts that fit them for the wedding day. So now I want something for the moms as a keepsake but have not for the life of me been able to think of anything!

    I'm doing a pandora charm for my FMIL!

    She collects them and has 2 bracelets almost full! So I for sure wanted to add to the collection as the new member of the family!

    Not sure about my mother yet.... I'm sure it'll be something Harry Potter though ahaha!

    What did you guys decide on for the dads?

    I made a wood jewelry box with wood burning art. Also made a custom designed greeting card for her.


    Find out likes and interests for the mom gifts. If you have Amazon prime they frequently offer fast delivery. Otherwise shop around at the mall or craft sales. Custom gifts are a great way to personalize.
