Less 'struggling' and more 'waiting to see' would be a more accurate, but less catchy headline. Thanks to Henway for the find:

George Clooney's Parents Struggling To Choose Wedding Gift

by Helen Earnshaw | 18 September 2014

George Clooney's parents are struggling to decide what gift to buy their son for his wedding day. Clooney is set to marry Amal Alamuddin at the end of the month, but what do you buy the man who is work a rumoured £100 million? This is the dilemma that is facing Clooney's parents Nick and Nina as they don't know if he wants a gift or would prefer them to make a donation.

Speaking to Grazia, Nina Clooney said: "I haven't got them a wedding present yet because we haven't decided what to get, or if they would prefer some kind of donation."

Clooney and Alamuddin became engaged in April of this year, and will wed in Venice later this month. And the setting for the wedding has also got the seal of approval from Clooney's mum.

"It is in Venice at the end of this month. We are just thrilled. We have been to Venice before and it is the most romantic place. It will be lovely to see George get married."

This is the second marriage for Clooney after he was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993. However, this is the first marriage for Alamuddin. New details about the wedding are beginning to emerge, as Us Weekly has reported that only sixty guests will be in attendance. Matt Damon will be there but it is still not clear if Brad Pitt - who has also just tied the knot - will be there.

Well it looks like Nina has spoken about the 
wedding venue.
Is it a reliable quote do we think ?

I don't know. It's really really rare for publications to make up attributed quotes but on the other hand I find it hard to believe that Nina Clooney spoke to Grazia.

I haven't got them a wedding present yet because we haven't decided what to get, or if they would prefer some kind of donation."   Good tap dance.  What did the reporter think she was going to say " oh yes, we're giving them blah blah blah." Gift is probably  wrapped and given.

Is Grazia an Italian based magazine ?

If it is then maybe that's how it came about with the Venice connection ?

Memory is abit hazy tonight, but wasn't there a quote from Nina right after she spoke about the engagement, saying she was misquotes or taken out of context and wouldn't speak about the engagement anymore because of it.  Think it had something to do with a line that sounded as if she was implying all of George's other girlfriends were stupid when referring to Amal as ( oh God to I have to say this) brilliant.  So I'm not to sure about Grazia.  Maybe yes, maybe no.

Just ignore, they would definitely know what their son and his future wife would want by now.

Agree with all the "ignore" recommendations. Hardly something that the mother of the groom would share with a journalist, even if it is true! Which probably it is not.

What do you give someone who needs nothing?

Your blessing and your presence at their wedding wishing them well.

Maybe a coffee mug collection?  Nick and Nina have received coffee mugs with the names of the films George has done at each of his premieres.  That would be a nice little collection.  And, who doesn't need more coffee mugs?

I find it hard to believe Nina would confirm timing and location of the wedding to a newspaper. Sounds like hogwash to me.

There are different versions of Grazia. There are definitely ones in the UK and Dubai so I assume by the name it originated in Italy.

Grazia is a relatively upmarket gossip and fashion magazine, not usually gutter press.

Yep, but publications don't attribute quotes to people unless that person really had spoken to them (or the magazine is quoting another interview somewhere else). Really weird.

Well today's article in the Amal arrives in Milan thread says that Nick and Nina are giving Amal a key to their home in Kentucky so that she'll always feel at home.

I think that's really sweet.
