Chelsea Clinton and mom Hillary received two wedding gifts today ahead of the upcoming nuptials on July 31. ( A former spokesman for President Bill Clinton today confirmed the date and location in Rhinebeck, N.Y.)  Chelsea is marrying longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky.

The mosaic artwork was made by hand of semi-precious stones and is based on a photograph when the two were in the country previously.

In a New York Post story, Clinton has said, 'Bill and I are nervous wrecks."
