Your mother’s wedding should be one of the best days of her life – she deserves it! Treat her to a beautiful wedding gift for the bride, and see her well up with pride. She might be worrying about how her children feel about a second marriage; your thoughtful gift can express congratulations and happiness without saying a word. Moms can get nervous, too, so she might just want you by her side. A gift of jewelry for her can represent more than just accessorizing; choose a piece that features his and her birthstones side by side, or family jewelry that celebrates each person. Widows will particularly appreciate a jewelry gift that represents both her dearly departed husband, and her new one. This is a kind and dignified way to pay homage to a lost love while moving forward in life.
Perhaps it’s your father that is taking a second trip down the aisle. If so, we have unique gifts for dad that he’s sure to love! You might choose a personalized present that he can wear or keep with him on the wedding day. A set of locket cuff links is ideal for dad’s wedding gift. Widowers can use the links to hold a picture of their first wife, and a picture of their new love. Dads can also fill the locket cufflinks with pictures of the children, or pictures of his own parents. Pair this with a set of “reasons I love dad” collar stays to bring a tear to his eye! A leather valet or men’s keepsake box can be gifted as a place for him to tuck away his first wedding ring. Designating a special spot for the old ring shows that he is secure in his new relationship, and ready to move on. At the same time, though, it respects the memory of his first wife.
When a parent is getting married for the second time, you need to buy gifts for the bride and groom. This can be tricky, because families don’t always blend together easily. Show that you support their happy union, with gifts that include him or her as a member of the family. A piece of family jewelry can be personalized with birthstones or charms that integrate the new wife or husband with the rest of the group. If you’re comfortable with the sentiment, you might present your new stepfather with a set of dad cufflinks, or give a mom pendant to your new stepmother. There’s no better way to please your parent and his or her new partner! Or, wish them happiness for a whole year (and beyond) with a year of wishes candles set or 365 wishes candle set.
The most difficult second wedding gift has to be the one that you select for your ex-husband or ex-wife. If your marriage had a clean break, you may not even be a part of one another’s lives anymore. If you had children together, though, or still have friends and family in common, the situation is a bit different. Show that you’re truly happy for your ex’s second chance at love by gifting a lovely congratulations gift to the new couple. Children will benefit from your amicable relationship with their other parent, and you will be setting the tone for them to accept their new stepparent. Your gift doesn’t have to be personal – it should, in fact, be a bit impersonal. Classic wedding presents of home décor are ideal; candlesticks, memory frames, and cocktail serving sets are all appropriate for this situation.
It doesn’t matter if it’s their first wedding or their fifth – every bride and groom should feel like royalty on their big day. Accomplish exactly that when you shop the RedEnvelope’s gifts for second marriage.
