How to pick the best Christmas gifts for parents

Parents spend so much time and money making sure their kids have everything they need that they often sacrifice the things they want or need. When shopping for Christmas presents for your parents, keep these tips and questions in mind:

  • Is there something useful that your mom or dad really needs? Something for work, around the house or in the car?
  • What’s something nice that they’d never buy for themselves but would enjoy?
  • Can you get them something for a hobby of theirs, or maybe an experience gift so they can go have some fun?
  • Parents might love something sentimental that reminds them of their family and pets throughout the day — like a photo calendar, personalized jewelry or picture frame.

What can I get the parents who have everything?

If shopping for your parents is difficult because it seems like they already have everything they could want or need, consider these gift ideas:

  • Gift cards to their favorite stores or restaurants
  • Tickets to a sporting event, play, musical or movie
  • Adventurous “experience” gifts like vouchers for rock climbing, scuba diving or zip lining
  • Something heartfelt and handmade
  • A donation to a charity in their name

What are the best DIY Christmas gifts for parents?

Most parents are big on sentimental gifts that don’t necessarily cost much but that mean a whole lot. Some DIY gift ideas for your parents include:

  • Picture frame wreath. With a quick trip to the craft or thrift store, you could have all you need to create a beautiful wreath lined with small photos of family, friends and beloved pets.
  • Personalized mugs. Use a permanent marker to create personalized sayings, quotes or designs on a store-bought mug, then place it in the oven to bake your creation on.
  • Homemade wooden wine rack. For the parents who love to entertain.
  • Date night in a gift basket. Maybe your parents aren’t big on venturing out into crowds but could use a relaxing date night at home. Put together a basket with all the at-home date night essentials like popcorn, movies, chocolate and a bottle of wine.
