As most people sit and write their personalised Christmas cards thoughts will often turn to what to buy for their family, friends and parents for Xmas. Buying gits for parents who already have it all can definitely be a daunting and challenging experience. But it needn’t be so.
By tapping into your parents’ personal interests and hobbies, you open up endless possibilities for choosing the perfect Christmas gift ideas each and every year.
- The Timeless Gift
If your parents are grandparents to your growing family, get the children involved in designing and writing their own personalised Christmas cards to nanna and granddad. You can then focus your attention on selecting a collection of your favourite photographs to display and present in a luxury photo album.
Fill the pages of your photo album gift with plenty of snaps of your happy, smiling children, and include personalied messages to bring each image to life. It’s also lovely to include some family group shots, and photographs of places that have a special meaning for your parents.
- Outstanding Outdoorsy Gifts
Active parents who enjoy spending time together in the great outdoors will appreciate receiving a matching pair of stylish stainless steel tumblers that are fitted with lids and finished with metal straws. The generous capacity travel tumblers can be used for serving piping hot tea and coffee, or for cold beverages like juice or wine.
If you want to really impress your parents, pull out all the stops with a deluxe picnic backpack hamper that includes everything that they need to enjoy a day out together. Choose a stylish two-person design that includes stainless steel cutlery, a flask, plates, cups/glasses, a cutting board, a wine opener, a tablecloth and napkins. Present your gift with a matching picnic blanket.
- Great Gifts For Keen Gardeners
Parents who enjoy gardening are the easiest of people to buy Christmas presents for.
You can buy them a gift subscription to Gardener’s World magazine, plantable gifts of seeds and bulb sets, or personalised items like gardening gauntlets, an apron, or tool belt.
If their outdoor space is small in size, gift them a beautiful terrarium so that they can enjoy a DIY gardening project indoors.
Don’t forget to include a premium quality gardening hand cream so that they can take good care of the hardworking hands that have toiled the earth.
- Stunning Stationery For Creative Parents
To beautifully complement your stylish personalised Christmas cards, you can choose elegant and stunning stationery gifts for parents who love to write, draw or design, or to make plans.
Any parent who enjoys expressing their thoughts, emotions and feelings via the medium of the written word will be delighted to receive the gift of a beautiful bespoke notebook. Choose an elegant hardback cover notebook in a statement design, which features the finest quality lined or plain paper pages. Wrap it up with an accompanying elegant pen.
Super organised parents will appreciate the gift of a practical, versatile and stylish planner that allows them to record day-to-day activities, meetings and appointments, important occasions, and special events.
- Wonderful Wellbeing Gifts
Encourage your parents to practice good self-care by gifting them a present that will enhance their wellbeing. A shiatsu back and neck massager is a practical gift that helps to relieve pain caused by tight and sore muscles. Choose an ergonomic pillow shaped massager with advanced heating function that offers a 3-dimensional deep kneading action for ultimate relaxation. The compact massager is ideal for targeting a multitude of body contours, and is small enough to pack for getaways.
A handpicked selection of luxury aromatherapy bodycare products, and candles, also make great stocking filler gifts.
- Cosy Gifts For Stay-At-Homes
Elderly parents, and grandparents, who may not be as active as they once were will cherish a thoughtful Christmas gift that allows them to feel extra cosy during the chilly months of winter. A chic and luxurious super soft throw is perfect for draping over the sofa or armchair, to make it an even more inviting place to sit while watching favourite TV shows.
Alternatively, oversized wearable pull-on blankets made of velvety soft microfiber and fluffy Sherpa provide a great gift option if your parents have different personal interests. Mum can keep warm while wearing hers when knitting or cross-stitching, and dad can don his to keep cosy while enjoying his own hobby at home.
A Scrabble Deluxe Edition wooden board game is the perfect additional gift for stay-at-home parents who enjoy their creature comforts.
- The Best Present For Music Loving Parents
Update the way in which your parents play their favourite singles and albums with an elegant lightweight and portable retro design record player. The stylish and simple setup features a 3-speed turntable, built-in stereo speakers, a headphone jack, and an aux-in that allows you to play music from any type of speaker device.
Your young at heart mum and dad, or your in-laws, will be over the moon to be able to get in their groove while playing those memorable songs that were popular back in the day, in a vinyl format on their bang-up-to-date turntable record player.
As you write your personalised Christmas cards, think about the music that you grew up listening to. You’ll then have no trouble shopping for an album or two by one of your parents’ favourite bands or solo artists, to present alongside the main gift that you have thoughtfully chosen for them.
