Gifts for Mom and Dad
December 8, 2014
With that said, I’ve come up with a few ideas for you to try, or at the very least, help inspire you to come up with other ideas.
Give your parents a date night (or twelve)
Now, we all know our parents are super busy. Between jobs, raising kids, and everything else in between they’re likely to not have much time to plan some special “them” time. So, do it for them.
What parent wouldn’t love this? Give them gift cards to their favorite restaurants, vouchers for movie tickets, bowling, mini golf, painting class, or whatever you can think of. Try to get creative and send them somewhere they’ve never been before. They’ll love the thought you’ve put into this and the memories they’ll build from their special nights out.
For the Dad who likes a drink when he gets home
Is it just me, or do all Dad’s (or just grown men) like whiskey and bourbon? Well, if your dad is one of those men, get him something he’d actually use and get a little kick out of every time he does. This moustache stone set is perfect for his after hours drink to wind down a busy day. Plus, at under $15, you can’t beat that!
For the mom who needs to treat herself to some R&R
Mom’s deserve all the relaxation in the world. Really. They do everything for us, even when we ourselves become adults. So, why not help get your mom to relax a little or pamper herself a bit daily? Get her an awesome bath and spa set (or if you can swing it, send that lady to a real spa). Try somewhere like Sephora where they have an abundance of different brands, different gift sets, all tailored towards something different.
Warm them both up this winter
First, they’re parents, so of course they drinks copious amounts of caffeine. Second, who doesn’t want something delicious and warm on a bitter cold winter day? Get them something that will tackle both. A gift set from their favorite coffee place (I opted for Starbucks, as they are both delicious and of course have an awesome gift set available). With something like this they can try out some new coffee flavors (likely holiday themed flavors) whether it’s for starting the day or relaxing.
These are just a few ideas. And hey, they’re all also really good for any of you last minute shoppers who may need something on the fly. Happy shopping, and happy holidays!
