28 Extra Special Mother Of The Groom Gifts

By Candice Elliott | Updated: March 27, 2023

    Being part of your child’s wedding day is an incredibly special experience for any parent. Thank your parents for all their love and support throughout your wedding planning and life. There is so much to do when you’re wedding planning before the big day. And then you need to get all the bridesmaid gifts, groomsmen gifts, flower girl gifts, ring bearer gifts – but don’t forget one important lady.

    Does the mother of the groom get a gift?

    Yes! It’s pretty customary for the couple to give gifts to their parents. At the top of your list should be the mother of the groom’s gifts. After all, this is the woman who created and raised the man of your dreams, your future mother, so you want to get off on the best foot!

    Many brides give their new mother-in-law sentimental gifts before or after the ceremony as a token of their appreciation.  Pair it with a heartfelt letter telling them how important they are to you.

    How much should I spend on the mother of the groom gift?

    Look for something sentimental that falls within your budget. People usually spend between $25 and $75 on parent gifts and about $100 for a together gift. If you don’t have a big budget, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to give a thoughtful gift. Thankfully, we found so many thoughtful gifts at every price point.

    What can I give my mother on my wedding day?

    You want to get something for your own mom as a thank you for everything they’ve done for you and your new mother-in-law, something to thank them for welcoming you to their family. You are going to be a team now, so ask your soon-to-be spouse for a little help choosing a together.

    Anything engraved or a personalized keepsake will always turn in the waterworks.  A special piece of jewelry makes a great keepsake for your day.  Our gift guide has lots of great mother-of-the-groom gifts.
