22 Thoughtful Wedding Day Gifts for Your Parents

A wedding gift is by far the best way to thank your ma and pa for everything they’ve done to help you down the aisle. Seriously — they raised you, helped you realize what’s important through the ups and downs of relationships, and, of course, likely shelled out some major dough to help pay for the event. Expressing your gratitude to your parents for helping to make your wedding dreams come true — or at the very least, being there on your big day to show their support! — requires some *major* thought and effort. If you aren’t sure where to begin, the gift ideas below are super sweet and will likely cause even more tears to be shed. Get ready to spoil those ‘rents and show them that you’ll always be their little girl with one of these personalized gifts.
