You probably didn’t think of such a thing, but it is nice and also surprising for your parents to offer then gifts on your wedding day. This is not necessarily a compulsory thing to do, but it shows love towards them and a sign of deep appreciation.
You do not have to buy them something expensive if you do not want to. A wedding gift for parents can be symbolic only and it will still be very much appreciated, I assure you. And give it to them when they least expect it.

For example, you can have a family album made with pictures of you and your to – be – groom, pictures of you and your parents, or your parents – in – law, or you and your parents when you were young or any other combinations of photos that include you, the groom and the parents from each side. Buy a nice looking album and put them there in some kind of a chronological order. If you want something almost the same, you can opt for a digital photograph frame which can be placed somewhere where they can see each day the sliding of pictures.
You can have pens engraved with a very short message or your names and give them to your parents. Also, you can do the same with wine stoppers. Both of the gifts are useful and make nice presents.
If one of yours or his parents is a smoker, you can have engraved lighters, personalized for each other. For a smoker this is a lovely gift which will be kept dear at heart. Think of buying for each one a cigarette case, engraved or not engraved. This is an elegant gift and a sign of aristocracy, so to say.
For the fathers, you can buy buttons (from precious metals or not) and for the mothers you can order special sets of jewelries. Or alcohol flasks and jewelry boxes for example.
There are many ideas that can be applied as gifts for parents of the newly weds, but first think what kind of person each parent is and then go on a shopping spree.
