What is the proper wedding gift?

My ex-husband is getting remarried. We have a 12 yr old son. The relationship between us is good. My husband and him respect one another. We have been asked to participate in the wedding mass and attend the reception. What is the proper wedding gift from us to them?

Proper Wedding Gift

Thank you for your question!

How fabulous that you have such a good relationship with your ex-husband. Kudos to you all!

Sometimes trying to find the right gift for someone who is getting married can be a bit of a challenge. It is always good to look to things that they enjoy.

Date baskets can be a fun idea. It is a basket that includes gift card to a favorite restaurant, movies or anything else the couple would have a good time doing together.

If they are people who enjoy art, a framed picture is an idea. Couples also enjoy personalized art or clocks.

Truly the ideas are limitless. Use what you know about the couple and be creative.

Best wishes!
