A nice bouquet of flowers for the mother and a bottle of good alcohol for the father would be the traditional gifts.
If they're picking you up from the airport, flowers will be difficult so perhaps a nice box of chocolates.
If they don't drink, don't buy alcohol. Perhaps some nice blend of coffee?
Ask your wife again and explain you really want to get them something. She may have some ideas.

A framed picture sounds brilliant. I know where to get nice art paintings so that might be the perfect gift.

@kaprys
I know the father drinks but someone said it wasn't a good idea. I don't know the culture there. I also have to buy gifts bro her brother and his wife because they have been supportive and really nice. If I asked my wife she will say no spending so just gonna surprise her.

It used to be when someone brought a gift of alcohol the host was supposed to open it on the spot so they could have a drink with the giver, but that's not so common anymore as far as I know.

You could get similar gifts for the brother and his wife (or maybe a single shared gift for them both)

Dude, honeymoon will be temporary so do not think about the details much. I have not seen any Nigerian-Polish couples have long-term marriages. In the event that you will need to get divorce, forget about your kid and you will be obliged to pay whole life alimony : ( Sorry to be honoust.

common

It gets confusing by the second. I think I'm just gonna buy something simple like the picture frame someone mentioned.

@LongTermR
You probably haven't travelled much that's why you haven't had the opportunity to see long term interracial couples. I would advice you to stop making love to sexdolls and go out to find a real woman. You sound so pathetic that I feel sorry for you.

Perhaps there are many interracial couples. Money is everything. I do not say that you black guys are poor if they are rich of course no problem at all :) but you seems like not rich one so thats why.... Anyway.

He does, doesn't he.

I'm sure that whatever present you take will be appreciated, and I wish you all the very best in Poland.

Thanks, yes I hope they like the gifts. I heard it's freezing in Poland right now and coming from a hot country, I'm not looking forward to that.

Winters can be cold there - right now it's snowing in Warsaw, and late winter isn't the best time in PL. Make sure you take some warm clothes. Good shoes and socks are important!
