Last month was my father’s birthday, and I gave him a bag and a pair of shoes—gifts for parents that I’m sure every parent will love!
The holidays are finally here! Finding the best gifts for parents who have everything is no easy feat. Over the years, I’ve found the biggest successes were those small gifts they didn’t know they needed or a thoughtful something that reminds them of the gift-giver—an item that recalls a memory you both shared.
Beyond our own flesh and blood, the parent label can span almost everyone in our lives. There are our biological parents, our step-parents, our significant other’s parents (new or permanent), and our grandparents. And then, come a certain age, the word “parent” starts to encompass our friends who are now producing their own spawn.
So get them a gift that’s exceptional, and give it to them together, not only for the potential cost efficiency but because they’re not just mom and dad; they’re a team. A team who made you.
Whether you’re looking for gifts for parents, birthday gifts for mom or dad, or anniversary gifts for parents, I’m going to share my favorite ideas! And while I’m doing my best to make sure the products I’m featuring will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so I suggest shopping as early as you can!
