I have found it really tricky to come up with gift ideas! My OH’s mum is really difficult to buy for - she can be ungreatful when it comes to gifts (a bit like Rachel from Friends). If it’s not designer or branded and she doesn’t like it, it'll end up in the bin.
So, I’ve decided that I’m only doing practical gifts that will be appreciated and won’t be a complete waste of money! For all the parents (my mum and dad, OH’s dad and partner and OH’s mum and husband), MoH and her partner and best man and his plus one, we have paid for their room for the night @ £150 per couple.
I’m also considering doing personalised mugs for everyone. I made one for my sister to see what they’re like (see below), and I think it’s something nice to keep (that’s the problem with the hotel rooms - there’s nothing to keep as a momento, unless you keep the tea bags from the room 😂). I might buy the mini ‘wedding day’ candles and put one of those inside the mugs for the ladies, and maybe a pair of personalised socks for the men with the role on e.g best man.
Vistaprint do a good selection of mugs with all the different bridal party roles (mother of the bride, groom, best man etc.)
